A funny story of 4 old ladies and a nice to read dialogue between them. Who said old is boring? Maybe a return to spiritism can open some people's minds and change life perspectives. It did the job for them

I can't recall if I have ever read anything by Fern Michaels before....but, one thing is for sure...I don't much think I will pick up anything by her again....What a started as a good premise...turned very quickly into a silly little novel...not worth my time or I spent a lot of the book speed reading just to say I read the darn thing cause it counts on my book challenge....Anyway...every now and then in the world of books you come across a dud or two....this one, in my opinion was a ...more

This is the second of the Fern Michael's Godmothers series I've read. It's about a group of four women that have been friends for over 50 years and they have recently bought a home together and it appears to be haunted. All of these women are filthy rich, and one has a talent for doing seances. So she does several of them to find who lives there and to release them so they can go to where they need go. Bing Crosby, Marilyn Monroe were some. It's kind of fun seeing how these rich old gals get alo ...more

The Godmothers has turned out to be an excellent series. I read Exclusive in 3 days, which is flying through a book for me. This story kept me on my toes. There was some deceitful romance, some best friend teasing and support, some motherly concern, and some paranormal events. It made for a rollicking adventure with a group of 60 something ladies. Loved it! I downloaded the next 3 books in the series onto my Nook to take with me on vacation.

Um silly but good for days when you are sick or silly

I like the characters but don't know why. But I dislike the idea is supernatural even for a tabloid story. It is phony here and yet in other books it can be well done.
Toni Wulfekuhl
Ida gets romantically involved with the Dr, who cured her OCD (Is that even curable?) who tries to scam her for millions. Thinking a guy who could cure OCD in a year wouldn't need to scam old ladies out of their money.

Sophie conducts seances in Tootsie's new LA Home and conjures up the ghosts of Bing Crosby, Aaron Spelling and Marilyn Monroe giving the paper the "Exclusive" that will help raise their circulation.

I love Fern Michaels but this is not one of my favorite series. Concept was good wit
Jennifer Chronister
Whenever I need a good "pick me up", I can always count on Fern Michaels. Exclusive is the second book in Fern Michaels Godmothers series.

Toots, Mavis, Ida and Sophie have been best friends for fifty years. They all decide to move to Malibu to help out Toot's daughter Abby. There's not much I can say about this book without giving too much away. So let's just say..... Full of wit, sarcasm, love, friendship and laugh out loud moments. Not to mention sleazeballs imposing as doctors and the ghosts
If you love a good mystery with a hint of humor, you'll enjoy Exclusive, the second book in the Godmothers series. In this one, Teresa Amelia Loudonberry believes her house in haunted by ghosts, and tells her friends, Ida, Sophie and Mavis. A bit skeptic, they did a seance and saw two spirits. Meanwhile, Ida's involved with her therapist in a heated romance, when he's up to no good with a scam, and Abby's job is on the line, when she promised a scoop, which fell through, and have romance issues ...more

Continuing saga. . . Fern Michaels is always at her best and the Godmothers keep the reader wanting more. The more I want is one of those awesome Godmothers.

Another great read about The Godmothers

Enjoyable reading continues the story of the 3 godmothers and mother of a tabloid reporter who becomes the editor of the tabloid she works for.

I actually liked this book better than the first but still doesn't flow like the sisterhood.
Nancy Brady
Perhaps had I read the first in the series, it would be a better read. It is the Golden Girls high on cigarettes, alcohol, sex, and ghosts. Per usual, lavish amounts of money (and name brands) being thrown around as well as the lifestyles of the rich-and-not-famous now living in what were the homes of the rich-and-famous (and being haunted to boot). Add in a bit of romance, sleazy tabloids owned by mysterious owners, and that is about it. Not one of Fern Michaels' best efforts.
Patricia Solla
Definitely was disappointed with this book. This is the second book in a new series for the author. There was too much going on and it was so confusing. Should have stuck with one character's action with everyone else continuing in the background. Also at one point there was something supposed to be happening that never took off and the resolution was a complete waste. The best part of the book was the ghosts and even that left me wanting something more.

A good read except they wrapped up the 'Dr' story line way to fast

I borrowed the audio book version to listen to , to and from work. This book was cute, kept my interest. I won't say it was fabulous, but it was a good read. It was a mix between a romance, chick lit,suspense, and a little ghost story added in. This is my first from the author, so I will see what else she has to offer. It is an easy read but I can't say that I could relate to the characters or really the plot.

Great book!! Can't wait 2 read the 3rd book!!
May 17, 2010 Sarah rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
I started reading this book and thought it was strange, but kept hoping it would get better. It didn't. The story lines were farfetched and were resolved poorly. From rouge doctors who cure OCD to ghosts of Marilyn Monroe to fake publicists for Brangelina to falling for your ex-stepbrother, none of the plot lines reached much of a climax. A disappointing read.
This book was very hard for me to get through. It didn't get interesting until the last couple chapters. It took me almost 2 weeks to read it because it just seemed to drag throughout most of the book. It seems as though there's going to be a third book in the series so hopefully that one is a lot more interesting.

Fern Michaels isn’t a person. I’m not sure she’s an entity either since an entity is something with separate existence. Fern Michaels is what I DO. Me, Mary Ruth Kuczkir. Growing up in Hastings, Pennsylvania, I was called Ruth. I became Mary when I entered the business world where first names were the order of the day. To this day, family and friends call me Dink, a name my father gave me when I w ...more
