While Tuesday's Child was an enjoyable read, it certainly wasn't one of Ms. Michaels' best. I just kept reading it because I hate to waste money.
Side note: I enjoy reading books set in my beloved Hawai'i, but am disappointed when an author doesn't seem to authenticate very much, which only perpetuates ignorance and/or prejudice. Case in point: Mikala, the attorney's first name, isn't a Hawaiian name. It's the "Hawaiianized" version of the name Michelle. If the attorney were truly of Hawaiian de ...more

What would you do if you were wrongfully convicted of murder? How would it feel to sit in prison for years knowing you were innocent? What do you spend your time thinking about? Revenge, of course. Plotting every day on how to take down the one person who put you away.
This is a definite page turner. (Completed it in a matter of hours.) It does not disappoint. Tuesday's Child is the first novel I have ever read written by Fern Michael's. Truly look forward to reading more of ...more
It seemed this was going to be a great story and it was until the end, what a let down and disappointment, I felt like I was deprived of what could have been a great ending.
I do think the background and the characters were well developed, but I just don’t understand how Sophie’s thoughts towards her future changed so drasticall ...more
I enjoyed this book - I kept waiting for the other foot to drop in this book. It didn't happen that way. I just wanted something more out of it. It was lacking something.
The book did keep my interest but was just ok - nothing special although I did enjoy reading about Hawaii and books with dogs always make me smile.
I just get tired of books with people with so much money that they can do anything. Maybe I need a new group of authors to read of people struggling ...more
