Leaving La La Land

Teresa "Toots" Loudenberry has a knack for finding adventure, even when she's not looking for it. But ever since Sophie convinced her friends to start holding regular séances, life in Los Angeles is getting a little too dramatic even for Toots's tastes.

Para quem gosta de histórias muito muito levezinhas, este é o livro ideal.
É um livro mesmo para se passar bons momentos, caracterizados inclusivé pelo bom humor.

Ideal, diria eu, para ser lido no verão numa espreguiçadeira e com uma caneca de café ou de chá.

Não exige grandes reflexões e é, ele todo, baseado na amizade. Na amizade verdadeira e duradoura, pois as suas protagonistas, são mulheres nos seus 65 anos, estando nos seus dias de ouro (várias vezes assim referenciados) e que sempre foram

I'm a huge Fern Michaels fan, and the many different series she has written! Her newer one "The Godmothers" is delightful and I'm enjoying it so very much! Very light reading. Cute series about four old ladies, doing good in the world..... And solving a few mysteries. Entertaining.

Teresa "Toots" Loudenberry is filthy rich, and likes adventure, and in this installment, the action moves from Los Angeles to Charleston, where the Sisters take up the search for the murderer of "sister" Ida's late hus

Should have read the blurb better because seances were a big part of the story. As if! The book is about four woman who have been friends since childhood. One is super rich and another quite rich. Granted the woman spread the wealth and help others but as I was reading I thought lets have a story about the men and women who are living on pensions and social secruity and still do good maybe not to the extent but still do good. Money makes everything just too easy.

Not a terrible story but the writing is a bit repetitive. Everything is stated and then restated and then often stated once more in the following chapter. I'd love to edit this book down for a more concise story. I would also make the murder mystery more of the focus, instead of solving it 3/4th of the way through.

Gostei do primeiro livro que li da autora, talvez por me ter identificado com o tema, mas este livro... Não me liguei a nenhuma das personagens, senti como se não conhecesse nenhuma, além de que ok era suposto mostrar que para os seus 65 anos elas se sentiam jovens, mas calma lá, aqui a juventude foi demasiado forçada. Não gostei muito :S

Couldn't do it. Talking to dead people and flipping each other off in the first chapter. Too much nasty talk and talk about smoking. Smoking smoking smoking! How do u land right husbands with an ashtray for a mouth?

I don't know what it was about this book. I read the first two and liked them. I can't even finish Late Edition. What I did read of the book had a been there, done that feel. This book, to me, was just not worth my time and I had to move on to another book.

Another adventure for the senior ladies. This time Mavis is mailing mysterious packages. The ladies find out that Ida's husband was murdered and try to find out who did it. Never a dull moment with these ladies. I loved every minute of it!

In the past I have read so many books and series by Fern Michaels. Thought I would try some books I have yet to read. I had already ready the first two books of this series years ago, so I checked out the remaining books from this series.

I am sorry to say I didn't enjoy the books. Two main reasons. I do not read or follow books or movies that are about "the other side." Also, I love the closeness of these women, yet with all the fighting, flipping each other the bird and mean things said to one

You don't have to read the others in this series to like this book. Four spunky and adventurous ladies who have been friends since childhood now live together as widows. They find themselves solving a mystery of who killed Ida's husband with clues revealed through a seance.

3.5 * estrelas... Gostei da originalidade do enredo.

Eu já conhecia Fern Michaels e fui uma das leitoras que gostou do seu anterior romance publicado pela Editorial Presença.
Quando soube que iria ser publicado Nunca É Tarde Demais fiquei curiosa, senti vontade de rever a sua escrita e, quiçá, voltar a encontrar mais uma história de coragem, amor e muitas peripécias mas nada, de todo, me poderia ter preparado para a agradável surpresa contida nesta pequena grande ficção. Aqui, mais do que amor,

This is the first book in The Godmothers series that I have read and I really enjoyed the story. It is about four feisty older women who are good friends and have some crazy adventures together. They start having seances and get messages from the "other world". Which leads them on a wild adventure to find out who killed Ida's husband. I like a book that can make me laugh and this one did that many times. Very enjoyable read. I received this book for free through Goodreads first reads.

Tenho a dizer que estou surpreendida e mais uma vez encontro uma autora que me fez dizer mal do primeiro livro lido mas que com o segundo apenas me porá a dizer palavras simpáticas.

"Nunca é Tarde Demais" traz-nos a história de quatro amigas de infância, agora com 65 anos, com toda uma vida por detrás que as faz ser ao mesmo tempo as melhores amigas e, por vezes, as maiores inimigas. Sophie, Toots, Ida e Mavis partilham de momento uma casa onde Sophie contacta, ou tenta contactar o Além! Numa des

I haven't read Fern Michaels before. Still haven't. Listened to this book on CD. I accidentally landed in the middle of a series she has written about the "godmothers." I liked the characters. It took me a while to get to know them, but by the end of the book I liked these ladies who had been friends since their school days, and now were together again after living their lives and loosing their spouses. Wish I had a fortune like Toots to make this possible for me and my friends. But, in all the ...more

Esta foi a primeira vez que li algo desta autora e fiquei contente por finalmente o ter feito. “Nunca é Tarde Demais” é um livro simples, que se lê rapidamente, mas que na minha opinião nos mostra o quanto a amizade é importante, seja a que idade for.
Achei que os sentimentos que unem estas quatro amigas são muito semelhantes com aquilo a que chamamos de amizade verdadeira, algo que na sociedade em que vivemos já é pouco visto. Apesar das diferenças notórias entre elas, estão sempre juntas para e

Fern Michaels vive actualmente na Califórnia, reconhecida autora com vários livros como bestsellers.

Nesta obra a autora dá-nos a conhecer quatro amigas - Sophie, Toots, Mavis e Ida - juntas desde miudas. Com personalidades, vidas e ideias diferentes estas mulheres com mais de 60 anos conseguem conviver... com alguma harmonia.

Sophie passa o tempo a ler cartas Tarot e a fazer sessões espiritas.
Toots, investe em negócios, uns dão certo outros nem por isso.

Não foi um livro cativante e tenho pena pois gostei imenso do livro que li anteriormente desta escritora "Um sonho de mulher". A ideia até é engraçada, para variar das tão na moda adolescentes apaixonadas/com super poderes temos 4 amigos com idades à volta dos 65 anos, mas depois é tudo um pouco embrulhado e confuso, suponho que a autora quis colocar demasiada ação num livro tão pequeno. Provavelmente também terá a ver com o facto de este ser o 3º livro de uma saga, algo que descobri através do ...more

Quando li a sinopse, pensei que devia de ser interessante visto que já tinha gostado de um outro livro dela e por isso deste iria gostar de certeza absoluta. Enganei-me. Eu que adoro ler coisas sobre espíritos e romance e deste livro não fui capaz de gostar. Achei que faltava qualquer coisa não sei. Não é um dos livros que vou recordar de certeza absoluta.

This is 3rd in series and was just as enjoyable as the first two. With a touch of supernatural which Michaels not shy about adding to any book or story line. The luck of godmothers, Toots son's & his friends having so many far reaching connections is just astounding. I kind of enjoyed how a person beyond this life could reach out to clarify his death and help catch the his killer. So even thou it's as far fetched it was still very much fun to read it.

Another Fern Michaels wonderful book!

Toots and her cohorts, Mavis, Sophie and Ida are in the over 60 club and they are still as fiesty as ever. When Sophie discovers she has quite the talent going to the 'beyond', Ida finds herself in quite a dilema. Once thought her husband died of some kind of poisoning, is now wondering whether he has been killed!

This was another story of Fern Michaels that I can't get enough of. A really good read.

This is the third installment in Fern Michaels Godmothers series. I enjoyed revisiting Toots, Ida, Sophie and Mavis, as well as Bernice, Abby and Chris. The godmothers are four 60-something women that you would love to know. They are totally engaging and involved in life. At their age, they are forming new businesses, traveling, meeting new people, solving crimes and helping other people. An enjoyable read.

Lots of fun! 4 sassy ladies in their sixties have a crazy adventure with seances, burglary, murder prevention, and travel coast to coast. There's weight loss, cigarettes, cussing, too many long island ice teas, sugary cereal, pralines, and other necessary "evils". After reading this I discovered that this is book 3 in a series of 5. Will seek out the other stories about Toots, Mavis, Ida, and Sophie and their adventures!
Patricia Solla
I actually liked this godmother's continuing story in the author's latest series. It's a little out there but it was fun to read. The four old ladies are definitely not your basic gentle old grandmas. It's not as good as the sistehood which I feel is some of the author's best work; but it held my interest enough to finish reading the story and wonder where they are going from here. Only time will tell.

The girls spend time back in Charlotte, where Ida's husband appears in ghost form to tell the Godmothers his death was actually a murder, he was poisoned.

Toots helps out a local bakery owner who has her own ghosts.

Despite the ghosts I liked this better then the last one, maybe I'm getting use to them because I'm not expecting the whole tabloid storyline.

Another good read

If you have become a "Godmothers" follower, you won't be disappointed with this continuation. Even though I am a complete opposite financially of these widows, the writing makes them real mature women in a great friendship circle. I thoroughly enjoy their bantering and their closeness and feel like I am there witnessing it all. Enjoy.

Love Fern Michaels Godmothers series. Hope she has more in the works as I am reading the last in the series.
Enjoy them much more than the sisters series. I found the sisters series much like " Charlies Angels "

The third installment in Fern Michaels' Godmothers series, Late Edition is every bit as entertaining as the first two. I love the godmothers - hilarious, rich women with serious potty mouths and other fun vices. I can't wait for the next one!
