Deadline by Fern Michaels

978-1-4558-1263-9Toots Loudenberry and her 3 best friends - Sophie, Ida and Mavis - return from an interesting trip to California to find trouble waiting for them.

Laura Leigh, a Hollywood starlet, is missing is Toots’ stepson Chris Clay is being called a person of interest in the case. Now he’s also missing. Toots calls in help to look for Chris and the adventure begins.

Author Fern Michaels writes an intriguing story of family, friendship, love and caring. Her characters are realistic and likable. Toots and the 3 Godmothers (to Toots’ daughter Abbey) are a feisty group of older ladies you’d love to know. This group bands together as old friends should. They bicker among themselves, but stand strong together when one of their group is in trouble.

Narrator Natalie Ross does a wonderful job bringing the story to life. Her cadence will have you laughing at Mavis’ quick replies and holding your breath when Toots gets bad news.

DEADLINE is the fourth installment in The Godmothers series, but is a stand alone book. This is a heartwarming story with mystery and intrigue. Toots and the 3 Gs may be ‘seasoned’ ladies, but they prove they’re a force to be reckoned with.

FTC Full Disclosure - This audio book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
Do you enjoy stories that pull families and friends together in time of trouble? Thanks so much for stopping by today.


  1. Mason - Thanks for the review. I like it when books explore relationships like that, and show us how people evolve personally, too, when there's trouble.

  2. I have read many of Fern Michaels books and enjoy them tremendously as escape novels. Thanks once again Mason.

  3. I've seen so many Fern Michaels' books on the shelves, but I've never read one. This one sounds great - thanks for the tip :)


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
