Teresa “Toots” Amelia Loudenberry has crammed a great deal of living—not to mention eight much-loved husbands—into her varied and rewarding life. Newly single, Toots is ready to taste life again, and fate has just handed her the perfect opportunity.

The owner of the gossip rag where Toots’s daughter works is about to lose the paper to his gambling debts. Eager to find a way to keep her daughter employed among the movers and shakers of Hollywood, Toots calls on her three trusted friends—Sophie, Mavis, and Ida—to help her pull some strings. Together, they’ll hatch a plan that promises thrills, laughter, and more than a hint of danger. Putting aside her widow’s weeds (black was never her color), Toots will prove that you should never underestimate a Southern lady of a certain age, and that each day can be a gift, if you’re willing to claim it.…

    " Very light read. I hope that this is the start of the series--left many threads still hanging with the various charactors. Not my favorite Fern Michaels book....but still helped to fill a long cold afternoon. :) "

    " This was one of the worst books I have ever read, which is a surprise since I normally enjoy Fern Michaels. The story was jumpy and had far to many characters and plot lines to make any of them enjoyable. At the end the story wraps up quickly like the author just ran out of steam writing. "
