Teresa Amelia Loudenberry known as “Toots” to her friends, has enjoyed her life and after the death of her latest husband, the eighth to be exact, she is not about to give that up now. She is itching for excitement and hatches a plan to have her best friends team up with her to snag a rag paper in order for her daughter Abby to keep her job.
The Godmothers are Toots’s best friend since childhood and getting them together has been no easy task. Ida is a germ phobic; Sophie is obsessed with a dying husband she doesn’t love, and Mavis has gained an enormous amount of weight.
While these women conspire to help Abby without her knowing, they too embark on an excitement filled vacation where they each must undergo some changes to get back the life they once lived. Only the excitement they find is not quite what they expected.
The Scoop is such a refreshing book to read. It will remind you of a great episode of The Golden Girls television show. These women are forces to be reckoned with, especially if they love and care for you. Excitement, humor, a bit of seriousness, and even a touch of romance make the first book in the new The Godmothers series by Ms. Michaels a very pleasurable read to tempt your lighter, playful side.
