I have read all the books in Fern Michael's "Sisterhood" series, and was royally entertained by each of them. "Blindsided" is no exception. I hope Ms. Michaels continues this series.

Another book from the sisterhood series. Another hit.
I'm glad this author decided to keep writing this series. Miss all the younger ladies though, hope we'll get to see more of them in future books.

The Vigilantes have pretty much retired; however, they come back together to sock it to a pair of corrupt twin judges. When your members include a former President, millionaires, and other people with significant power, you can make a difference in ways most ordinary people can’t, and some of those methods aren’t exactly legal. However, what matters is that good triumphs over evil.

I will preface the rest of the review by saying that this is the first Fern Michaels book I have ever read, and sin

# 22 In Sisterhood saga
Alright this is an ongoing series so if you haven't read previous novels you might be a bit lost but for the most part it can be understood as a stand-alone if you don't care to know the backstories and hints from previous books and characters.

So we start this novel with Maggie coming back and spills her tale and then gives the Sisterhood a new mission. Seems that a couple of twin Judges are in need of a good ol' Sisterhood enlightenment.
With the help of the Post team, Ab

It's good but not as great as the others. I really miss the involvement of the other vigilante woman. I don't care if it makes the book longer but to put in a bit more detail about Lizzie Fox handling her business vigilante style still makes it cohesive. I want to hear more about Abby/Abner even if it's just a teaser. I think the plot was awesome and the bad guys description made me feel like taking them down myself and wanted to kick the in the balls if they had any...

The vigilante ladies are at it again and this time their focus is on two judges who are identical twins. These twins have the citizens of their town scared to go against them. They have declared their missing brother dead and stolen his lands and money. No one knew about this until a young reporter started investigating them and got run out of town. Then the ladies heard of it and said enough is enough!

I usually love the vigilante series but this one fell short. I wish Ms Michaels would include

I like the sisterhood books. I also am happy that author Fern Michaels has let them age gracefully. None of their lives have been perfect, like real life, they rely on their friends to survive. Their mistakes are forgiven and they are truly a family. This book gets them back to bringing the bad guys (or ladies) to justice and they do so in style.

The premise is funny and somewhat interesting, although, as with many series books, this one is not one of her best.

I'm going to say something about quality rather than content. There were so many typos and extra words in sentences that I'm wondering if anyone edited or even read this book before publication.

I liked this one, the two twin "baddies" give everyone a run for their money. The women judges are as clever as they are evil. Plus they have been at this racket for years and were racking in money hand over fist. Money, control, intimidation and manipulation mixed with a very unhealthy dose of fear has kept them at the top all this time. No one had a clue until one chubby novice small town reporter smelled a rat.
It was easy to see how the word Blindsided was the title of the book. In the very

Is Justice really blind?

Another fast-paced tale from Fern Michaels, but this time the story is focused on the skills of the "second string" ladies and their supportive backup team. I thought I would miss the original Vigilantes but these ladies are just as exciting and focused on vengeance as their younger Sisters. Retirement from professional life has left them bored and itching for another mission to right wrongs and dispense their unique brand of justice. I enjoyed reading the buildup to the

I wanted to like it and I tried to like it but...I didn't like it. I started not liking it on the first page. Myra Rutledge was sitting around the house with her 4 dogs while her husband Charles was in the basement writing his memoirs who no one would be interested in. So, if no one would publish it and no one would be interested, then why the hell has he spent 4 years writing it? Myra apparently can't cook but Charles has taken to making meals in the crock pot and Myra resents it. Why? If she d ...more

Laughter, excitement, suspense, a bit of danger and a lot of revenge run amuck when the ladies gather at Pinewood.

The ladies of author Fern Michaels’ Sisterhood series aren’t ones to fade quietly into the background. Though it has been awhile since the ladies were called upon to dispense their own brand of justice, they are always ready for a new challenge.

Narrator Laural Merlington does an excellent job bringing the characters to life. Her distinct mannerisms and vocalizations have you believi

While I imagine a fan of the Sisterhood series will probably be quite pleased with this twenty-second installment, I didn't quite get it. **This was the first book in the series that I've read, and I'm assuming there's a certain something about the twenty-one preceding this one that draws readers back repeatedly. It's possible that certain magic is lacking in this book, but I'm willing to acknowledge that it's more likely I'm just not attuned to it. Unfortunately, I also didn't encounter it inde ...more

The Sisterhood is back in action, and none too soon! Although many of those in the sisterhood have moved forward with their lives, for Maggie Spitzer and Annie deSilva, their love lives have crumbled. Myra Rutledge, as well as many of the others have become bored and restless and miss the excitement of their missions as vigilantes. So when Maggie returns to Pinewood, she also wishes to rally everyone together in the war room in order to discuss what could be their next mission. She believes a te ...more
Blindsided by Fern Michaels was very disappointing to me. It took me a while to work through the beginning because there were so about where the different women were at the point in their life. I think it would have worked better as a standalone with all that at the beginning.

I loved the main story about the evil twin sisters declaring their brother dead and deep into moneymaking schemes. I loved to hate both of them. But some of the details of the Viligilantes' war room seemed dated and not pla

What I have to say about Fern Michaels's Blindsided. Well, if you want to know what has become of Charlie's Angels, after they have grown older and can not take on all those assignments, where they need to dress up or dress down, do some serious marshal arts fighting and fire all kinds of weapons, since they have highly respectable jobs and kids and husbands ...

Well they still rush into the fight if somebody is in trouble or somebody is stepping over the line with using the power that is given t

I could not finish this book but I think it was my own error. I requested this book from NetGalley because I have read other Fern Michaels books and while I think she has an odd way about her writing I usually enjoy the story. However, this book is the 22nd in a series called Sisterhood. The problem is this story is about the characters getting back together and restarting some type of operation they worked on before and while I tried I couldn’t understan

Overall, I like this series. This one had a few shortcomings. Not much happens in the first 40 pages, but once the mission is finally explained it got interesting. The first couple of chapters has the characters mostly eating and getting drunk. It kind of irked me that when Charles made dinner in the crockpot, his wife complained. After all, she can't cook--I didn't really see why she had such a problem with it.
I also didn't find the two judges that intimidating as it relates to the Sisterhood.
