Publisher's Summary

Meet the Sisterhood - seven very different women who found one another in their darkest days and formed an indelible friendship, strong enough to heal their pasts and bring laughter and joy back into their lives. In Myra Rutledge's beautiful Virginia home, amid hugs and fresh iced tea, shrimp fritters and shell-pink tulips, the friends have gathered to embark on their second mission of sweet revenge for one of their own. Julia Webster's husband, a U.S. Senator, has used his wife's graciousness and elegance to advance his career even as he's abused her trust at every turn and left her dreams for the future in tatters. Now, on the eve of his greatest political victory, he's about to learn a serious lesson in payback. Because the senator crossed the wrong woman...and there are six more where she came from....

    "great romp"

    I really enjoyed the cast of characters, their brains and beauty and spunk. Well paced and fun listening to a good narrator. Helped make the time knitting samples go by quickly.
    Am downloading #3 right now.

    "Great Books"

    As with all of the Sisterhood Series this was a totally enjoyable listen. Laurel Merlington does a superb job with the audio and I love the story line.

    "The Sisterhood ROCKS!"

    Is it so bad to want to be part of this group of women? I want to be part of The Sisterhood! These women are amazing! I know Payback: Revenge of the Sisterhood #2 is only the second in this series, but I'm hooked. I love this series! I already have Book #3 and I will soon be starting it. Even though this is my new favorite series, I think these will be my shortest reviews because there is nothing more to say that get this audiobook! Make sure to start with Book #1, though! I cannot be more happy that I came across these books. They are the only books I have read by Author Fern Michaels. Obviously, I have been missing out on some fabulous writing....I'm going to check out another one of her series and get a book with my credit!

    The narration couldn't be any better. It's soooo good. Laural Merlington is a superstar narrator! I can't imagine hearing anyone else play these parts. She is perfect in every way!

    My rating is 5/5 stars! I highly recommend you check The Sisterhood Series out!

    Thank you for reading my review. I hope it was helpful. :-)

    I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.

    "Hooked on these characters"

    I'm hooked on this series because of the crazy characters. It is a light read with good, well thought out solutions to some peoples deplorable lack of moral scruples. No murder or gunfights just a good ole caper with a little humor mixed in. Some parts are a bit far fetched but it certainly adds to the adventure. Laural Merlington's excellent narrative brings life and timing to all of the characters personalities. Onto the next in the series, it's a nice, light way to start out the New Year

    "Revenge is a dish best served....cold!"
    If you could sum up Payback in three words, what would they be?

    A satisfying conclusion! (to a brave woman's ordeal at the hands of her cheating husband!)


    Which character – as performed by Laural Merlington – was your favorite?

    I really like the portrayal of Myra Rutledge. Every time I hear her voice, I clearly picture her and her busy hands, frequently wringing her pearls. I especially enjoy how her character has developed over the past few books. Nicki Quinn is also quite believable. Laural is one of my favorite audiobook performers due to the way she keeps each person in their voice. It's like sitting in with a group of woman friends, good friends, with comfortable conversation!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Julia gathered up her plant and brought it home.

    "definitely hooked"

    I found this book in one of my recommendations. I was skeptical, but the ratings were high so I gave it a try. suffice it to say that I am listening to the third book within 2 days. sometimes outlandish you cannot help but get hooked and love each one of the characters. What is an appropriate retribution? Will they get caught? this series keeps you on your toes.

    "Why did I waste a credit?"

    I don't get all of the love given to this book! I won't waste any more of my time time by delving into the series. Lame, lame, lame. Sorry Fern Michaels fans, I can't be in the club.

    "Entertaining"

    While just as entertaining as the first book in the series, the 'payback' in this one is not as undoubtedly justified as the one performed in Weekend Warriors, and that distanced me a little from the story this time. Still well worth a listen though, and I do not regret using my monthly credit on this.
