I have read quite a bit of Fern Michàels books, when I saw this new book I grabbed it thinking it would be a good light read. I was very much intriged by the beginning, but lost me soon after. I thought the story had too many holes, It seemed like there were several plots that she started and then never mentioned again? By the end of the book I found myself rolling my eyes a lot. I felt this book was really corny. I could not return this book to the library fast enough.

I've never read this author before and took this book out of the library because it was in the mystery section and there was a dog on the cover. It is a romance novel which I dislike so I am surprised I finished it. I guess I kept waiting to be interested in or have empathy with the plot or any of the characters. I didn't. Not even the dogs............and I am a dog rescue volunteer. Very disappointing. ...more

OMG! I thought this book would never end. I have to stop buying books with pictures of dogs on the cover. This was a silly story of a young couple awash with godmothers and very sexually active seniors. They were all terribly rich, did start a home for homeless animals, and donated to all of the charitable causes in their community. The end!

Teresa 'Toots' Loudenberry and her three best friends, Sophie, Mavis, and Ida, better known by Toots' daughter Abby, as the three Godmothers are back. Now Abby is newly married to her long time beau Chris Clay and they now reside in Charleston at the 'Clay Plantation'. It was the perfect location as they were only blocks from Abby's mother and her godmothers and they all visited one another often. As Abby & Chris get settled in their 12,000 square foot mansion, Toots has a new love interest, Dr. ...more

This book had a little of everything. The main characters are Toots Londerberry, her boyfriend Dr. Phil Becker; Abby and Chris Clay married about a year, there is also Abby's godmothers Ida, Sophie, Bernice and her boyfriend Robert, and Mavis. Abby and Chris establish an animal rescue facility on their plantation for animals that have been injured in fires, hurricanes, tornados or abused. They will help animals large (farm) or small (dogs, cats etc).

Abby's mother Toots opens a canine cafe where

Great book. Really makes you feel good. Life is good. These ladies are so wealthy and so chummy. Fast read. Looks like this series will blend in with the Vigilantes -- great - love that series, too.

The Godmothers is a good name for this series, because it certainly reads like a fairy tale about potty mouthed, over-sexed, smoking fairy godmothers.

Abby is a beautiful young woman, married to the man of her dreams. lives in a mansion in Charleston, was given $10 million dollars as a wedding present, her twins are each given $1 million as a christening gift, and her mother, her 3 godmothers, and even the housekeeper all have gorgeous, sexy boyfriends and successful businesses to which the seem

A number of my friends are Fern Michaels fans, so I was glad to dip into this book as a GoodReads First Reads. Unfortunately, the thing I liked best about this book was the adorable dog picture on the cover.

I thought the plot, what there was of it, was full of holes and non sequiters. The disturbing Prologue bore no relation to the rest of the book that I could see. The paranormal aspect of the story was unexpected, since I wasn't familiar with the characters. Also unexpected was the rude and vu

This book was different from the other Godmother series. The first half was about 2 children who were kidnapped and the police used Sophie's psychic abilities to find them. A child porn ring was broken up. This half really stressed Sophie's growing abilities. Throughout the book was the line of the story about the growing relationships with the men interested in the 5 women. Then there was the reunion with Berniece and her son Daniel. Finally there was the storyline about Abby's first pregnancy. ...more

I think someone else is writing in Fern Michael's place. This book was almost painful to read, I had to keep pushing myself to finish. Her earlier works were amazing. I really enjoyed her Kentucky, Vegas, and Texas series. The Weekend Warriors were great at the beginning, but by book 15 or 16, it started getting cheesy. Either the poor gal has lost her touch, or more likely, someone has started writing in her place. I'm not impressed with her latest books. Highly recommend her earlier stuff. I w ...more

What happened??????????
I was so interested in the beginning with the dream and Abby looking into the plantations history -- then it was never mentioned again.
I thought OK the kidnapping story line will be interesting but it was over before it started.
Some things seemed to be repeated........the kidnapping from the previous book was referred to way too many times. Yes Toots lived in the Clay plantation house........I think it was mentioned 6 times.
I couldn't wait for it to be over.
It was painful

I got this book through Goodreads.
It is the first book of the Godmothers series that I have read.
There are many characters to remember and only short bits of action.
The first not until page 50.
The book is filled with too many prior happenings before anything new happens.
I think this is one series that it would be better to start with the first book.
The end hints at what the next book will tell about the lives of the characters.

this book kept my interest the whole way through
there was a kidnapping in the middle which was solved right away so I knew other things would be happening since I was only in the middle of the book
there is more of Abby and Chris in this book which I enjoyed

I guess I just got a little bored with this one. Older women with active sex lives and lots of money. It seems like one of those filler books that come along, not a lot of content but an obligation to produce a book.

This book had a slow start about Toots and the 3 Godmothers. All of them in their golden years and enjoying life. But Abby,the daughter was the highlight of all the women. All of their wealth was spread out and enjoyed by all.
All in all it was a good entertaining story.

Meh. I’ve really enjoyed the Godmothers series, but this one was a little off for me. There were story lines that were unfinished and others that wrapped up in a predictable and convenient way. This one was just so-so for me.

Too sweet. People are nice but the story is sickening sweet.
Best mystery I've read in quite awhile.  Fast paced and makes you wanting more.  I'm so glad this the beginning of a  new series!  Jack is determined
An awesome read

Such an awesome read that I can hardly wait for the next book in the series. As usual, Fern Michaels remains one one of the top writers of all time.

Loved it! This was definitely the best one of the series, in my opinion. I am kinda sad that this is the last one, however.

This was my first Godmothers book. I like the way the story is told. The author shows she cares about animals as they play a big part in the story.

Did not realize part of a series. Should have read previous books to get back stories of characters. Abby, her mother and 3 godmothers and life in Charleston.

All the Good Stuff

A very quick read. After all the drama in California, Toots, Abby, Christopher and the Godmother return to Charleston and continued their lives there. New projects and businesses happen along with new relationships and many good things. A must read of the Godmothers Series.

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 ...more
