Twentieth and last [I hope] in the Sisterhood vengeance-suspense series revolving around a core group of seven women determined to right judicial wrongs.

My Take
Well, the ladies are bored again and President Connor sets up an ultra-secret, "doesn't exist" agency with the vigilantes as its sole members who are available to tackle missions for the President. Fortunately, all the younger women choose to pack it in at the end with all sorts of life-changing decisions.

Unfortunately, the older member

Would that I had known that this was the twentieth book in a series before I listened to it! This is definitely not a series in which the books are stand-alones. It took a while to even begin to understand the characters and their backstories. I was intrigued enough to put this series on my to-read list, but really did not get much out this installment. Maybe after reading the first nineteen books in the series, my enjoyment (and rating) if this one will change.

The FINAL one! She's supposedly not writing any more Sisterhood books after this one... #20 was suppose to be it. So, with that said, I have to say, WoW! I was shocked at how it ended!! It sat on my shelf for a month b4 I read it! All cuz I didn't want it to end! But it was Great! And I believe all Sisterhood lovers will b proud also!!

Clearly you need to have read some of the previous books in the series to know what's going on. I picked this up as an audiobook without knowing it was #20 in a series. I didn't have a clue what was going on. Definitely not written to entice new people into the franchise.

I really liked this one but it also could be that it got the reader caught up with the Sisters personal lives. This part is one of the main focuses at first because the girls are chasing their tails trying to figure out who they were supposed to be targeting. Madame President gives them the best heads up she can, which isn't much. Love the Gold Shields that they now carry. We also got to see how some of the women and their "men" were doing in the romance department. Things aren't going smoothly ...more

Fern Michaels continues to write about these amazing group of women and men and there journey to right injustices in the world.
Sisterhood novel

TBH (to be honest) I am just Sisterhooded out. I devoured the first couple in the series and then sorta slowed down as you can tell. I took my over a month to finish this book. Not because it was bad but I read the previous ones back to back and after about ten or so books I got burnt out on female vigilante justice..

Ok sorry about the ranting and I'll appoligize in advance for the lacking review.
Highlights from this novel include:
Maggie falling in love
Maggie goes to Camp David

Lizzie Fox contacted Charles to advise him she was at the Whitehouse with the President of the United States and that she would like an emergency meeting with the girls.

When Maggie Spritzer meets up with Nikki and Alexis for lunch and tells them of her new beau Jason Parker, at one time a congressman for 10 years and now an investment counselor. But Nikki and Alexis are not quite sure of Mr. Parker's intentions and wonders if he is using Maggie. Suddenly out of the blue, Maggie gets a call from

The Sisterhood is at it again, invites to Thanksgiving weekend at Camp David with the
president-their friend. They will find out what's needed of them soon.
Very cool information about Camp David and the names of the cabin and the procedures.
Different sisters obtain information about slush funds and how others are related to
those who attended Camp David for Thanksgiving.
It's now Christmas season and the decorating and buying of gifts is all around while they
still strive

"United by a desire to overcome their personal misfortunes, seven very different women formed an indelible bond and vowed to right wrongs wherever they found them. They’ve succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.

Personally, I found this book very unenjoyable: the book was confusing, the characters were very unlikeable, and the story dragged on very slowly. It took me over half an year to read, and I was literally forcing myself to finish it.

While I do like the descriptions, the plot itself is very boring and slow-paced. I lost interest in 3 chapters. The characters somewhat irritate me; for example, many of these characters fell in love magically and instantly when they caught sight of their partner, a

This is suppose to be the end of the sisterhood, however she did open a door for a spinoff.

President gives the vigilantes Gold Shields and they need to figure out the mission. Missing funds from a secret government Slush fund. Maggie, Annie and Isabella find new love interests.

Was just ok, loved the first few, when they first formed the vigilantes and their original quests for justice for their own purposes. Books lost something when she tried to split them into separate series, thinking she tho

Being the OCD type, I had to finish the series. I was very disappointed in this story arc. I loved the characters (or the idea behind them - shallow and predictable as they were) but was very disappointed in the number of inconsistencies/continuity errors involved in the 'STORY'. If there were to be another in the series or a start up of a new series involving the older characters (as intimated in the last chapter), I will not be spending my scant book allowance on it, but will wait for the libr ...more

This novel had an okay story (the Sisterhood trying to live normal lives, but none of them really wanted to do so...special gold shield badges given by the President for who-knows-what--the mystery of the story, and the requisite happy ending for all of them with a teaser for another "gold shield" mystery/cliffhanger in the epilogue). In addition, but it was too full of advertisements (or name-dropping of brands) on nearly every page, references to food/meals, and cliches. Her current novels are ...more

Another Sisterhood hit! I liked the story line, however, i was a little disappointed that were wasn't much punishment to the "bad guy". They gave in to easily as far as i was concerned. That's one of the reasons I like the vigelantes, they always have unique punishments. I don't want to give the end away but, i am really looking forward to what happens next. It was kind of a shock and left me feeling kind of unsettled. I am a little worried the next book (that is if there is even one) could be a ...more

The beginning of this book is somewhat confusing but the sisterhood themselves are as confused indicating that the best was yet to come. The implication is that the women have been honored by the president and given an assignment but they have to figure out what needed to be done. As the storyline goes on the reader is made aware that the young women of the group are happy with their normal lives and that this will most likely be the last assignment for the sisterhood. There's a but and I'm not ...more
2.5 stars

This book was the series finale, and unfortunately it didn't live up to the previous books in the series - actually the last few have been a little bit lacking, but I really felt like this book could have been condensed down to a novella, or possibly even an extra couple of chapters at the end of the previous book. The epilogue was great, it tied everything up in a nice, neat bow and all the characters ended up with their HEAs, but it just felt like the rest of the book was only written
This book puts a cap on the Sisterhood Series, sort of. Have read the whole series and love them all. Funny thing about this series, I love all the female characters, but the male characters with a couple of exceptions, not so much! Jack and Ted particularly, I did not like their characters at all. Love Cosmo though. Am anxious to see if Fern Michaels continues some of these characters in a revamped sisterhood series. She kind of leaves it open to continue in the end.
I only gave this book 3 stars because i have finally given up on this series. Way too repetitive after 20 books. I read this one fast, hoping it would get better and it just didn't. Officially glad I stopped buying the books in this series years ago. Not worth it after so much of the same!! The only thing different really is that the girls have been pardoned by the President. Other than that not much else happened.

This is my first book by author Fern Michaels. I was not impressed. The novel did not start to get interesting until the latter part of the book. In all fairness, maybe I should have read one of her first novels. It seems, there were many references to past experiences that meant nothing to me. Many of the characters fell magically in love instantly upon seeing their mate. I don't think I will be reading another novel by this author.

This was a fast read with nothing too complex about it. A group of women, the Vigalantes, take on secret missions for the government to right wrongs that no one else can. It's an unbelievable story that is great for night- time reading as it won't give you nightmares or keep you awake pondering the human condition.
# 20 of this series when I hadn't read any was, nevertheless, a fun easy read with this group of women working together to solve a crime. If I had read previous stories I would have had a better idea of the characters in the story.
At the end of this one it looked as if the sisterhood was breaking up but, then again, a shadow of doubt existed there. They may be back again------.

Well it looks as though the series has come to an end; however, with the way it ended, it almost seems like there would be possibly another spin on the whole thing, which is what I hope. Even though the last few books have lost their "jazz", I'm still impressed with the entire series and loved each and every character in their own ways. If it is truly the end, I'm super sad!
Diana Dupre
Interesting perspectives and stories that come together well. Only negative is I wish the cover mentioned there is another book before this that I think must tell the story of them working together ? This book was definitely leaving me wishing I'd read the story of them as an original group.

I have consistently enjoyed this series. Personally, I would have liked to see it morph into something else. The ending was perfect and completely lines up with the rest of the series. Very enjoyable.

Last of the sisterhood series - good book but nothing really happens until the last 25 pages. President Martine Connor forms a top-secret organization comprised of the vigiantes who's new assignment is to find the "private gov't slush fund" that is missing.

Very quick and easy read. Another in the series, supposedly the finale! Sounds like a start to another series with the same premise. Guess I'll be on the look in yard sales for the books but in no hurry. Guess Ive grown tried of it.

Another Fern Michaels "vigilantes" book. In this one they are called upon by the President for a mission but they must find out themselves what their mission is. Will this be the end of the group?? Read to the end to find out how it all unravels !!

Easy reading.

This story of sisterhood vigilante group, there love life and work did gave my brain some rest. Love reading political, medical and legal thrillers, had some political thrill but ending was very obvious.

This book was okay, but since I hadn't read the earlier ones with these characters, I felt like I was missing a lot. I also thought the plot was a bit disjointed, but that could be because I hadn't read the earlier ones first.
