    The saga of The Godmothers continues! I was a bit surprised to learn that this was part 1 of a 3-part serial, but enjoyed catching up with Toots, Sophie, Mavis and Ida -- though Sophie and Toots are the main focus of the mini-series. My curiosity is piqued, so am ready to read on! 6 out of 10.

    This book is the beginning of what may turn out to be the most challenging of what the Godmothers have gone through. There is something in Sophie's new home and it feels frightening. Can the other ladies help or will she keep them far away? This book has a cliffhanger. I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Since all three books in the new godmother series by Fern Michaels relate directly to each other and since all the books are totally intertwined within each other, I am reviewing Hideaway, Spirited Away and Getaway together. None of the three books is particularly long, and each reads rather quickly, making them seem more like one “big” book. In this trilogy, the four friends, Toots, Sophie, Mavis and Ida, join forces to figure out what exactly is happening in Sophia’s new, apparently haunted ho Since all three books in the new godmother series by Fern Michaels relate directly to each other and since all the books are totally intertwined within each other, I am reviewing Hideaway, Spirited Away and Getaway together. None of the three books is particularly long, and each reads rather quickly, making them seem more like one “big” book. In this trilogy, the four friends, Toots, Sophie, Mavis and Ida, join forces to figure out what exactly is happening in Sophia’s new, apparently haunted house. Sophia’s psychic/paranormal abilities help the foursome as they move through a series of strange events, all related to the history of Sophia’s house. This is also a story of the four seniors who have “been there, done that” and are ready to settle down in happily married life once again. One thing I did not understand, however, is why after all the other books in the series, the author chose to provide short snippets of how the four came together as adolescents at a religious school none particularly even wanted to attend. It would seem that this sort of recap/back story would have been better suited for an earlier book in the series, if not the first book, where the four are introduced. The story, as I said, move along at a nice, steady clip. I am not sure, however, if the way they choose to put the final piece of the puzzle together is the realistic way these sorts of things are done. I am not going to go into this more because I want to avoid spoilers. Naturally, throughout the three books we are introduced (or perhaps re-introduced in some cases) to the men, who now become an integral part of their lives and how the entire crew interacts and works together. In addition, Abby, the once-upon-a-time journalist daughter of Toots and mother of one-year old twins (the apples of their grandmother’s and godmother’s eyes) as well as her husband and twin children also play a solid, though not dominant, role in the book, giving the story a bit of hominess and levity. Nevertheless, I wondered sometimes, as I read, if these were the same characters from the other books and why things between and among Toots and the three godmothers seemed off, not really like the way they were in other books. Possibly, the introduction of men into the lives of these four women is what made things unlike the characters in the other books in the series. They just did not seem, as I said, like they were in the other books. The story reads well and quickly, as I said. The three books are well-written and interesting. I just found the way things were handled a bit off. If you enjoy other books by the author or if you enjoy this series, you will enjoy this one. I am also not sure about stretching the story over three books, as there was a story line and plot, though not much of one. I am not sure having the reader procure three books was a great idea, though it is a bit unique. This is a fast easy read for someone who enjoys curling up with a book, or books in this case, and reading something or things that is/are quick and light. I received this from NetGalley to read and review.

    I have been reading Fern Michaels since I was a teenager. There is something comforting about her books. I've read the first Godmothers book and reading Hideaway makes me want to go back and read the rest of them. We join the Godmothers as they have each moved to their respective homes in the outskirts of Charleston, SC. Sophie and her husband are occupying a 100 year old house with a terrible secret. The ghost is trying to make contact with Sophie but is having trouble doing so. I don't usually I have been reading Fern Michaels since I was a teenager.

You get so wrapped up in the story that you don't remember you aren't a fan of ghosts. I cannot wait to continue the story as I am on the edge of my seat wanting to know what happened in the house many years ago. Thank you to Kensington and NetGalley for an ARC to read and review with my own honest opinion.

    If you know the Godmothers, you already know that they are a particularly close-knit and well-meshed group of women. They’ve seen each other through a series of adventures and challenges, both in their own personal growth and with the people they seek to help and keep safe. Now things have settled, somewhat, and with everyone finding life proceeding nicely, Sophie is finding new challenges. Not in her marriage, a happy event for all, or even in her daily life, but a presence in her new house fee If you know the Godmothers, you already know that they are a particularly close-knit and well-meshed group of women. They’ve seen each other through a series of adventures and challenges, both in their own personal growth and with the people they seek to help and keep safe. Now things have settled, somewhat, and with everyone finding life proceeding nicely, Sophie is finding new challenges. Not in her marriage, a happy event for all, or even in her daily life, but a presence in her new house feels “off” and more than slightly threatening. Sophie is the Godmother most closely tied to the “other”, her own gifts tend toward psychic and empathetic, and her ability to communicate with those who are no longer present in this world gives her an unusual perspective among the women. And her perspective is being tested now, with a confused and occasionally angry ghost that is desperate to gain Sophie’s help in finding answers for her. Understand that this is only the first part of a story, as a serial, so there are plenty of unanswered questions, a cliffhanger and the story does not wrap up cleanly. But, if you are one who enjoys the series, and are drawn to stories that bring a touch of mystery to the table, while highlighting the friendships, support and solid relationships between the women, this is a wonderful start to a new adventure for the ladies. Michaels writes characters that you want to befriend and know – you celebrate their successes, worry during their difficult moments and grieve for their losses: and even in the short form, those moments are palpable and present. Stay tuned for the next in this serial, Get Away, coming in May. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility. Review first appeared at I am, Indeed

The Hideaway, brings Sophie De Luca to her friends about problem with her new home at the unusual thing left behind by the previous owners. Well worth the time and effort to read.

    This is listed on Goodreads as number 6.25, but on Amazon as book 7. It is also supposed to be book 1 of 3 of the Godmothers. It's less than 100 pages in length.

The biggest takeaway I got was that the characters have sex, and the main character, Sophie, can be rather rude at times. I found the characters to be rather lifeless, and I didn't like any of them. I'm guessing this fits in a larger series somewhere, but after reading this, I wont be picking up the rest.

    This book is in the middle of the series and as far as I am concerned, I never quite figured out what was going on. And, it ends right in the middle of the story. I have ordered the next book in the series, but not happy with this one.

    The freaky ghost.. I love this series with the godmother . This story leaves you worried about Sophie and the twins. And wondering if this ghost is just weird or is there violence there too connected with her death. All the characters are back and the house sounds awesome.

    This was my first book in the Godmothers series. I'm not much of a romance reader, so I don't think I have read Fern Michael's books. Of course, I could be wrong. However, this one was not a romance book. It was mostly about a haunted?? house and a group of older women holding seances. It was a short read and was just okay for me.

I have not read this series in proper order but enjoyed this book on its own, admittedly more with the sample of the second of the three books comprising this story included at the back.

The reluctant spirit needs help but I don't think she knows what to ask for. She is afraid and confused. This build up to the actual story has me very curious. I am intrigued and will be looking for the rest of this story.

    I suspect it would nicer if one was more familiar with the Godmothers than I am but this is nonetheless an entertaining and lightly written novel about four friends and their psychic snooping. I liked it for the friendship between the women more than for the romance or for the mystery. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
