BREAKING NEWSTeresa “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…
CLASSIFIEDTeresa “Toots” Amelia Loudenberry is a wealthy woman by anyone’s standards. But the riches that mean most to her are the loving friends and family she’s accumulated over the course of a life well lived. And now that her daughter, Abby, has married her beau Chris and settled down near Toots in Charleston, life is even more satisfying than the delicious pralines sold at Toots’s bakery, The Sweetest Thing.
Abby isn’t the only one enjoying a little romance. Toots’s friendship with Dr. Phil Becker has grown unexpectedly close…and that brings both joy and complications. It’s one thing for a lady to be a little vague about her age, but Toots hasn’t been entirely honest with Phil about the number of marriages in her past. Frankly, after burying eight husbands, Toots suspects she should end her relationship rather than jinx Phil, too.
As a distraction from her personal dilemma, Toots throws herself into helping Abby and Chris open an animal rescue on their plantation. And then another diversion hits—this one deadly serious. Two young children have disappeared after visiting The Sweetest Thing, and police are combing Charleston with no trace. Toots immediately enlists Ida, Sophie, and Mavis to help in the search. But as Sophie’s psychic abilities draw them closer to the culprits, they realize the stakes are much higher than they ever could have imagined. Courage, love, trust, and daring have brought the Godmothers to where they are today, and they have never needed those qualities—or each other—more....
