In addition, the romance line is very predictible.

I always find myself wanting to read just one more page, just finish this chapter and yet 1 hour later still finds myself engrossed in her book.

I needed some light reading after having recently finished several 500+++ page books, so I checked out Deadline. It is very light. Too light for me. But it may please fans.

If you are familiar with the Godmothers series by Michaels, you will probably slip happily into this book. There are four women of a certain age (I would say 60s) who have been friends forever and from all appearances seem to live together, or at least close enough to be together all the time. They have all done well in life, whether through marriage, design, or something else. One is a psychic (otherwise, I probably wouldn't have checked out the book). There are a collection of people around them, including a daughter and step-son who are central to the plot of this book. The book fills in these characters a bit, but only a bit. There are a number of private planes involved too. They don't have much personality.

The plot is pretty bare bones. A visit to the governor's mansion to have a seance. The step-son disappears at the same time a starlet (his client) disappears. They are later found, and everyone is ok. The housekeeper in the South Carolina house has a heart attack, but she is ok too, after surgery. Three pairs fall in love, but we see little development of these relationships. It is like a slice of life, though not one I'll ever see.

As I said, I read this book because I wanted something light, and I got exactly what I asked for. I would not really recommend this book to anyone who is not already a fan of Fern Michaels, and only in that case because I assume it is typical of her books.

Where has the respected author Fern Michaels gone? I can't believe this author is the same one who has written so many really wonderful books, and is now resorting to these tacky little "harlequins"

Where is the author of the Vegas, Texas and Kentucky series? Where are the wonderful books that she wrote in the late 1990's and early 2000's?

If I were an author, and of course I am not, I would rather go out with a bang instead of a little fizzle.

To write this drivel about four sex crazed over the hill females...and no I won't call them ladies...is sad. I don't care how comical some of the story is, the rest is vulgar, and crass.

Enough said.

I am a great fan of Fern Michaels and have read all her books throughout the years. This book is very slow moving. The majority of the book dealt with Chris missing. This was the focus of the book. I feel Fern Michaels can certainly do better than that. I could not wait to finish this book. I did read it every chance I got. I know Fern Michaels can do better than this. I spoke to my co workers who have read it also and sorry to say nobody liked it. Fern please give us a better read for the summer.

This book is one of the worst examples of both mystery and romance. I almost discarded it upon the first chapter but decided to give it a chance. It kept getting worse and worse. It starts off with missing people and jumps to a heart attack victim. In addition, the romance line is very predictible. And... there is all this paranormal junk interlaced within the story. I just wanted to groan. This is my first Fern Michaels experience and it has soured me towards her.

Format: Hardcover
Four women who have been friends since grade school are now living together and sharing life. They've helped each other through some trying times over the years. These aren't your typical senior citizens. These ladies all have talents and they use them every day. Toots has the money and owns several businesses. Ida is the flirt and does make up for the deceased. Mavis has a clothing line for those in mourning and for the deceased. Sophie is they psychic and seance coordinator. Together they solve some mysteries others can't. They are the godmothers.

I don't want to give to much away about this book because if I do, you'll know the whole story. Funny, heartwarming and filled with excitement, this book is NOT one of Fern Michaels best efforts. The story starts off as them approaching one mystery and then when that story runs out of steam, and it does, it switches to another mystery and then yet another. I felt as if it was thrown together as snip-its of several stories and called one. I don't recommend this book and I love Fern Michaels books. I was very disappointed in this one.

I found too many stories all at once in one book. Too many characters and nothing tied together other than the four ladies who knew all these people.

I gave this book a 3 out 5 books because it was a big disappointment.

Good Read; yet I detest when writers publish a book that is only 250 pages; it does not seem enough of a developed story to me. While she wet my appetite; it wasn't developed enough for me.

I will have to discontinue this series if the author insists on only publishing 250 page novels. It is not enough text or story.
