    The story could have been good, but the writing was horrible I kept readingfor whatever reasononly to be disgusted by the cheesiness of the whole thing.

    Did you all hear that massive thudding sound That was me finally hitting rock bottom Never before have I read a book so indescribably, savagely putrid as Riptide by Catherine Coulter It is interesting to begin by noting that Coulter previously wrote historical romances before deciding to crawl into the ever expanding, ever excreting bowels of mediocrity by jumping on the band waggon of police procedural mystery thrillers In this terrible book, I found flaws on nearly every page Sadly, I was Did you all hear that massive thudding sound That was me finally hitting rock bottom Never before have I read a book so indescribably, savagely putrid as Riptide by Catherine Coulter It is interesting to begin by noting that Coulter previously wrote historical romances before deciding to crawl into the ever expanding, ever excreting bowels of mediocrity by jumping on the band waggon of police procedural mystery thrillers In this terrible book, I found flaws on nearly every page Sadly, I was drawn in by the fast paced beginning which, despite being poorly written, seemed to promise entertainment if nothing else Then, as the terrible dialog began to pound its way into my brain and the characters remained cliche, I came accross this quote She looked back once at the ghastly pile of white bones wearing Calvin Klein jeans and a sexy pink tank top Poor girl She thought of the Edgar Allan Poe tale The Telltale Heart and prayed that this girl had been dead before she was stuffed in that wall Ummm, scuse me CC, but aren t you referring to Poe s story The Cask of Amontillado, and don t you think that using the word tale directly in front of the word Telltale sounds very redundant You probably do not because you are a bestselling author and you and your team of editors and so forth are too busy rolling around in the money you make off easily satisfied people to notice your countless mistakes I mean, I was reading the paperback How did people not notice that when it was a hardcover It is all downhill from there A ridiculous romance starts up which I did not predict because I did not expect this book to deliver such a low blow, a main character constantly uses the expletive damnation, and I stopped giving what little shit I had given in the beginning I have never seen writing this bad Never in a published novel, that is I can usually handle bad writing with a good plot or good writing with a bad plot, but when you put them both together and present me with a novel cornier than Nebraska, I can t like it I am actually offended by the book in its entirity which is something that has never happened to me before Even the mystery was ruined by its predictability and Coulter s horrible use of a second climax which was totally unrealistic The whole thing simply can not be explained to me No excuse can valedate such a tragedy of literature No amount of reason can possibly make up for something such as this being created and sold in a world where people with college educations are starving on the streets I am fucking repulsed and disgusted and beg all of you not to read this book and most likely nothing else by this author If she hasn t learned to write by this point in her career, she never will I could go on and on about how bad this book is but frankly, I don t think it deserves anyof my time or attention so goodbye Catherine Coulter and the Riptide of shit you road in on

    Okay, much better than The Edge The characters hadto them, they didn t seem flat like those in The Edge The way she describes everything, if Riptide weren t fiction, I d love to visit the place I swear I could taste the salt from the sea, smell the fresh air Withthan one twist to her story, she kept me hooked I sort of figured out a few things didn t jive , and sort of firgured out who the Boyfriend could be, but it was the twists and how it got there that kept me hooked As Okay, much better than The Edge The characters hadto them, they didn t seem flat like those in The Edge The way she describes everything, if Riptide weren t fiction, I d love to visit the place I swear I could taste the salt from the sea, smell the fresh air Withthan one twist to her story, she kept me hooked I sort of figured out a few things didn t jive , and sort of firgured out who the Boyfriend could be, but it was the twists and how it got there that kept me hooked As for the main character, Becca was real to me No matter how scared she was, she fought back I do hope that the rest of the series doesn t fall flat like The Edge did I don t want to be disappointed like that again

    The premise of Riptide is frightening Becca Matlock has a stalker He calls her, he assaults people to put on a show for her, he shoots the governor for sleeping with her even though they aren t sexually involved She tries to escape to Riptide, the hometown of a college friend, but her life spirals downward in fast forward.The issue with the novel, though, is the very stilted and contrived dialogue Every character spoke the same way despite their age and geographical differences The fast The premise of Riptide is frightening Becca Matlock has a stalker He calls her, he assaults people to put on a show for her, he shoots the governor for sleeping with her even though they aren t sexually involved She tries to escape to Riptide, the hometown of a college friend, but her life spirals downward in fast forward.The issue with the novel, though, is the very stilted and contrived dialogue Every character spoke the same way despite their age and geographical differences The fast pace of plot detracts from any chance to characterize Becca and Adam past vague caricatures Becca is the strong willed female lead and Adam is the protective male The constant mention of Becca s skinniness was unnerving Adam spent a lot of time thinking about how he wanted to force feed her to get her weight up It didn t really fit with the flow of the story and I m not sure why it was mentioned as often as it was The ending hammered the final nail in the coffin view spoiler Becca and Adam get married After knowing each other for all of what, two weeks This is highly unrealistic and childlike Do you really know someone well enough to marry them after two weeks, most of which were spent in a nearly hysterical frenzy hide spoiler Though cliches ruined a bunch of the surprises such as the one at the very end , the story was interesting enough to finish If you ve read other mystery FBI thrillers and liked them, then you ll probably enjoy this Personally, I didn t like it someone once told me reading this genre was like reading an embellished checklist and, unfortunately, I can t see past the very formulaic story

    Another fun romantic suspense by Catherine Coulter Not the best by her, but not the worst.A little spy action, topped off by a good old fashioned psychotic stalker.

    Hard to believe this is Catherine Coulter s 17th novel It was just so poorly written Cheesy dialogue, unbelievable story, predictable plot It started off promising I mean, the writing was bad from the beginning, but the story was fast paced and interesting It didn t take long for it to lose me though It s also hard to believe the book has received 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads Coulter must have some real die hard, long suffering fans Just a few reasons why I thought it sucked 1 Almost e Hard to believe this is Catherine Coulter s 17th novel It was just so poorly written Cheesy dialogue, unbelievable story, predictable plot It started off promising I mean, the writing was bad from the beginning, but the story was fast paced and interesting It didn t take long for it to lose me though It s also hard to believe the book has received 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads Coulter must have some real die hard, long suffering fans Just a few reasons why I thought it sucked 1 Almost every character was incredible unlikeable, with the possible exception of Sherlock and Savage.2 I was listening to the audio book For the first 5 disks there was little language, no F words Then suddenly, it was as if the author decided that to make the storydramatic she should add a dozen or so 3 The story just went on and on and on This nine disc book could have easily been told in 3 I got through 7 of 9 discs Then decided that I just couldn t take any, so I skipped straight to the 9th to finish up, and didn t really feel like I d missed a thing POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT4 Becca buys herself a blackmarket gun, has one session at the gun range and suddenly she s an expert marksman Shooting randomly at the unknown she s lucky she doesn t kill some innocent bystander but no, she always hits her mark.5 She has FBI who have been assigned to help protect her, but she s constantly insisting on going on every raid and shootout that they have And they let her Becca can cover me, they ll say Are you kidding me She s a civilian She acts like an idiot and everyone lets her.Those are probably my biggest complaints, but not at all the only ones.I understand that the author used to write Historical Romance novels thecheese and fluff the better She probably should stick to that because this political thriller was full of the same cheese and fluff and it just didn t work

    This book was number 5 in the FBI Thriller series I m a big fan of that series, but somehow i never totally got into this one as much Savich Sherlock come in a little on the sidelines, and you get to see a glimpse of how their little boy is doing, but they re not really featured at all The main character, Becca, is being stalked, and flees to a small new england town, Riptide She actually ends up leaving Riptide by halfway through the book There are some twists, but they re pretty obvious This book was number 5 in the FBI Thriller series I m a big fan of that series, but somehow i never totally got into this one as much Savich Sherlock come in a little on the sidelines, and you get to see a glimpse of how their little boy is doing, but they re not really featured at all The main character, Becca, is being stalked, and flees to a small new england town, Riptide She actually ends up leaving Riptide by halfway through the book There are some twists, but they re pretty obvious, but there s also some action, which is good Has anyone ever noticed how strangely people talk in this series Especially Savich People don t talk like that It s always been a bit hard to picture these people who are always well muscled, in shape, talented, with really great jobs speaking as if they are toddlers I love Catherine Coulter, but they really do I used to work in a daycare Anyway, I enjoyed it, but wasn t really sucked in as much as her other books If you re reading the series, as i am, you ll want to read this one, but if you re just reading it as a stand alone book, I think you d rather choose another of hers instead It just lacked..something
