Book Overview

First published in 1988, False Pretenses was not only Catherine Coulter's first foray into contemporary suspense, but it was also her first hardcover. Now, beautifully repackaged for her ever-growing legion of fans, False Pretenses will once again electrify readers. It is the explosive story of how one woman must survive the destruction of her perfect life--and the intentions of three mysterious men...

False Pretenses

Another Coulter great read. This book was hard to put down and an interesting read. Complex characters with a great twist.A great summer read. Enjoy!!

good book

I really enjoyed this book. It never dragged even in the beginning, the only complaint is you find out the killer too early. I couldn't put this book down.

This was wonderfully supenseful

This is my second book I have read By Ms. Coulter. The first one was "The Edge" (which was very good.) I look forward to picking up another one of her books very soon. "False Presences" reminded me of some books written by Sidney Sheldon. That is probably what I liked most about it. Elizabeth is suddenly placed in a high profile court case with the dead of her husband and then because very rich after her aquittal. She must now make it in the world of business which she knows nothing about. Her husband's family is out to get her and ruin her. The family is run by the mother-in-law who believes Elizabeth has killed her son. There is lying and bethrayal,love and hate all the makings of a great book. What I most liked about the books was the friendship that developed with Elizabeth and her step-daughter,Catherine. Catherine started off in the book as a woman scorned and turned out to be a true friend. This books had wonderfully developed characters and constantly kept me changing my mind "who did it."


Ms. Coulter has once again given us a story that captures the imagination. Its entertaining from start to finish. Her hero and heroine are wonderful. The villian most evil and her secondary characters delightful. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. You definitely won't be disappointed.

Can't be beat!

Coulter always delivers and this one is no exception. I loved this book! Great story and great characters. As usual, I couldn't put it down. Coulter has such a knack for dialogue and tension. I enjoy her contemporaries, like False Pretenses, as much as her historicals.
