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....

Critic Reviews

"Revenge is a dish best served with cloth napkins and floral centerpieces...fast-paced...puts poetic justice first." ( Publishers Weekly)

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 premise badly executed

This series has a lot of potential but the execution is so sloppy it made me laugh out loud, especially some of the dialogue. Oh, and the dog is now a German Shepherd instead of a Belgian Malinois. Since she didn't describe him at all in the first book, I thought a malinois was a mastiff-type animal. Google showed me it's a similar type of dog to a shepherd, so I suppose it makes sense to assign him the more recognizable breed.

However, this is typical of the writing issues in the books. I can only surmise the author was under a very tight deadline with competing priorities and just needed to get something on the page.

The hardest thing to swallow is Nicole's relationship with Jack. If she's still pining for him that much after how he's treated her, she deserves him. The fact that the reader makes him sound like a melodramatic, foul-mouthed Bugs Bunny makes it even funnier.

My mom had read some of the later books so we downloaded the first two for a car trip. She says they get better.

The sisters always keep you glued to the story. <br />

The sisters always keep you glued to the story. Fern Michael's has never written a story that is under a 10, believe me, I have read most of them.

When the justice doesn’t work, Women Warriors do !

Weekend warriors

Fern Michaels kicks off her Sisterhood Series with a rousing story of retribution. Each woman in this secret Sisterhood is introduced, along with why they felt need to wield vengeance and vindication. The performance kept this reader’s attention from start to finish. Michaels weaves a great tale. Not only was this book a great read, it promises future books describing more retribution again and again by women wronged by injustices.

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.

Sisterhood Series Surprisingly Disappointing

It was very hard to stay focused with this book. The main characters justify violence and revenge too easily. Revenge seems a poor motivator, and by book 3 of the Sisterhood Series, the enjoyment the female characters experience just planning as well as inflicting pain is disturbing. It tips the balance to the extent that their scales of justice are a joke.
If you enjoy descriptive torture, you will enjoy the Sisterhood Series.
The performance shows the different characters, but the laughter is grating and has the same tone for every character.
