Summary

Teresa “Toots” Amelia Loudenberry has her quirks, but no one - especially not her trusted friends Sophia, Ida, and Mavis - would ever question her loyalty. So it’s no surprise when Toots decides to extend her stay in Charleston to help care for her ailing housekeeper.

Though the Charleston air is drenched with azalea and honeysuckle, and there’s always a pitcher of sweet tea close to hand, the ladies have little time for relaxing. Ida’s new line of cosmetics is about to launch, and Toots, Mavis, and Sophia are relishing new careers as models. And Abby, Toots’s daughter, is getting hitched. In the middle of so much change, Toots is almost too busy to notice her own unexpected romance. After eight husbands, she’s sworn never to get involved again. But fate - and her friends - may have other plans. And every godmother, fairy or otherwise, loves a story that ends with happily-ever-after....

Well worth the listen, must start with first book

What other book might you compare Breaking News to and why?

The others in the series must read all in the series leading up to this one

Have you listened to any of Natalie Ross’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

About the same as the others

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, too much

Fern Michaels never lets me down

What did you love best about Breaking News?

I love the godmothers. This has been one of the best series I have read. I love them better that the "sisters". Although I feel like this one was the last...(Oh, I hope not), I love the excitement. These old birds are funny, charming and just plain feisty.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Breaking News?

I just could imagine the look on the doctor's face when the spirit of Toot's late husband spoke to them. I wish this was a movie...Too funny

What does Natalie Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Each character has their own style and voice. She's really great at this. I have enjoyed the books even more because of her.

If you could take any character from Breaking News out to dinner, who would it be and why?

The new doctor, of course...ha ha or maybe Toots. Maybe even together.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoy Fern Michaels books. She is very entertaining
