Years ago, It was suggested to me that I might like this series. But, I was skeptical because at that time I was into really dark, gritty novels and looking at the book covers, this one as an example, with a white picket fence and red roses on it, I was sure it was too syrupy for me. But, when I received a copy of one the sisterhood novels as a gift a while back I thought- “Why not?”
As it turns out I really liked the book, and wanted to read ...more
I've rather enjoyed a couple of the later books of this series, but find the second installment far less appealing. The overall premise of women banding together for vengeance is a fine driver for this long-running series, and lends itself to a variety of situations for our protagonists. This time out the senator husband of one of the sisterhood has not only drained their financial accounts, he has given her a death sentence. Before she takes her last breath, Julia would like nothing be ...more
It's Julia Webster's turn for justice. Diagnosed with HIV caught from her philandering senator husband, Julia had to give up her career as a plastic surgeon. She wants Mitchell to pay with humiliation, disgrace, and never have the opportunity for a comeback. She also wants justice for the subscribers to the Monarch HMO. Hundreds, if not thousands, of subscr ...more
One is not left with deep philosophical ponderings after reading these books. Instead, they make you feel like you have had a nice "catch up" visit with a friend and they ma ...more

The title should have gotten my attention—the novel is one of the Sisterhood series which is about seven very different women who become vigilantes, pursuing justice and revenge against thos ...more
It is an vigilante, escapist, living vicariously, pull-for-the underdog type of series. Can you imagine how they feel? Can you see the logic in their conclusions? Do you think they should have done differently? Do you think the world's a better place because they interfered - even though it was illegal?
However, I found myself totally put off b ...more

In this book, the Sisterhood is ready for their second mission to set things right. Alexis, who was chosen at the end of the first book for the next mission, admits that she's not yet ready, so they d ...more
Julia's mission is two-pronged in "Payback (Zebra Romance)." In addition to making Mitch pay, she also wants to punish a greedy HMO that sentences patients "to death" by denying claims for treatment.
Again, technologically savvy Charles Martin's expertise is critical to the success of the plan th ...more

I wish they could find a way to get Jack and Mark out of the picture, those guys are annoying!
On to the next in the series ...more
The problems? They too easily get away with their (illegal) actions, requiring too much suspension of disbelief.
Any book that ends with 19% of the "pages" left for fluff, future books, is misleading.
My disclaimer: I bought the book, I don't know the author and I wasn't asked to review it.
