Fans will enjoy this madcap comedic tale as the escapades keep on coming when the four BFFs go after their man.

In Charleston, South Carolina the four sexagenarian BFFs gather for the funeral of the millionaire husband of one of them Teresa Amelia "Toots" Loudenberry; this is her eighth spouse she has buried. She informs her buddies that the mourning period will be one week before they dash to Hollywood.

Obsessive-compulsive Disorder centerfold Ida, overweight Mavis accompanied everywhere by Coco the Chihuahua and smoker Sophie agree to go with her to California. Toots plans to buy the near bankrupt tabloid the Informer where her daughter Abby Simpson works as a reporter. . However, the ten million dollar deal collapses when newspaper publisher Rodwell Archibald Godfrey III takes the money and runs to the Cayman Islands. V

THE SCOOP is a zany over the top of the Hollywood Hills starring the Golden Girls who go after Godfrey. Each of the four musketeers is different, while the ringleader is Toots. The story line is amusing and irrelevant as even the opening funeral services affirm nothing is sacred in life when it comes to eternity. Fans will enjoy this madcap comedic tale as the escapades keep on coming when the four BFFs go after their man.

Product placement a disappointment

This book is the first I've read with product placement in the story. It was clumsy and distracting to the story. I won't be buying this author or any of her publishers again.

There was so much attention to smoking I thought I had to leave the room to get some air. ...

There was so much attention to smoking I thought I had to leave the room to get some air. The end left you up in the air about the main characters daughter and her romance. Smoking was more important.

Now I must stop typing on my Dell computer sitting on my Office Depot table and chair!
