She's just the best! I enjoyed the fact that she didn't go back and explain things from previous books in this series. Newbies might not understand, for example, the significance of the "red bag" or who Barbara was and why she, "appeared" to Myra, etc. not having read about it in the past....but I loved not wasting my time with suff I already knew! You need to read this series in order.

Sixteenth in the Sisterhood vengeance-suspense series about a group of women who bring justice to those the law leaves behind.

My Take
Again. I like Michaels' premise. I hate her execution. It's a train wreck ya just can't resist watching and this installment is no exception. It's almost embarrassing to read some of the exchanges the characters have with each other. It's kind of like they're on speed and they've condensed their thought processes into short choppy sentences that just don't connec

Annother Fern Michaels winner!

Lizzie Fox, high-powered attorney is ready to do what she can (with the help of the vigilantes) to help Rachel and Thomas Dawson. The Dawson's have been trying in vain to get pregnant, and finally decided on adoption. With the help of lawyer, Baron Bell and a large six-figure fee, he has found a set of twins for the Dawsons. The money is no object when they look into their children's newborn eyes. But now the Birth Mother has come into the picture and demands from t
The books in this series have sure varied for me in terms of number of stars. I liked this one best of all because it was more of a fun, entertaining read without so many stomach turning scenes of torture. Still very light and with an incredible, silly plot but a quick, cozy, rainy day read.

Sisterhood #16

Sisterhood Vs. Baby Ring

Once again the sisters Aka the Vigilantes take on a mission in D.C. Mothher Nature is not cooperating at all as she pelts D.C. And surrounding areas with snow. Runnying against the clock and the weather the Vigilantes are working thier magic to reunited the babies to the rightful parents for Christmas.

A whole lot of fun and amusment to be had in this novel. A fitting punishment that is not soon forgotten. Plus a get away that leaves the secret service stunne
couldnt read it fast enough. this book was just as good as all the others. her books always seem to get better with each one she writes.
You gotta love a group of Vigilante Women who exact revenge on a couple of attorney's operating a kidnapping scheme. Great light read!
I've read quite of few of the Sisterhood books and I keep hoping I'll change my mind. The real question for me that is raised in the books by the Sisterhood, women who extract vengeance when they determine justice needs to be served, is: does the end justify the means. Yes, the books are fiction and I should read them as such. However, this group of talented, skilled, organized women extract a pound of flesh when they feel it's right to do so. I continue to have a difficult time reading about th ...more

Hands down one of the worst books I've ever read. I can't believe how bad this book was. Okay, so halfway through the book I realized that the reason I had absolutely no idea what was going on was because this book is one of a series. Still - I am a firm believer that writers should write every book, including subsequent ones in a series, for a new reader. Ms. Michaels obviously didn't want to do this. So now new readers like me have to deal with the main storyline being buried in a confused mes ...more
This is a book in the Sisterhood series, which I did not realize when I started it. I really think you need to read the others first, for the background info. Without having done so, there was quite a bit that I had no reference for and didn't seem to mean much. Really couldn't get invested in the storyline or characters, but I don't see that as completely the fault of the author, more my own for not having read the others in the series first. That said, I'm not sure if I will, I'm not sure I re ...more
Jumping into the sixteenth installment of this series without reading the first fifteen showed to be a big mistake. Perhaps with more background this book might have been a better feel. However, as a stand alone ... well, I didn't care for it.

The story ... a couple having fertility problems gets a surrogate, gets twins, surrogate wants babies back, lawyer turns out to be a crook, so what now? Well, the 'Sisterhood' to the rescue of course ... and that's pretty much where it went wrong. The vigi

After years of trying to become pregnant without success, Rachel Dawson and her husband Thomas felt their dreams head finally come true the day they brought home their newly adopted twin babies.
This was until the birth mother reappeared. Baron Bell was the high-priced lawyer who arranged for the adoption.
Suddenly this high-priced lawyer was nowhere to be found, and the Dawson's we're once again childless, heartbroken and nearly destitute.
When the case finds it's way to the offices of high-prof
This is a series and this is way down the line but I was able to get the gist of what was going on. I liked the story line but I didn't like the bad language that burst out once in a while.
I didn't realize I was listening to a book late in a series. Consequently I had not idea who all of these characters were and how they were connected. The premise of the novel, ad adoption gone bad, got lost in all of the flurry of so many characters and what they could do. Everything that happened was so far fetched as to be totally unbelievable. I was very disappointed as I have read other Fern Michaels books and thoroughly enjoyed them. The narrator left a lot to be disired as well. Her attem ...more
In Fern Michaels's Deadly Deals, the 16th installment in the Sisterhood Vigilante series, this one dealt with black market adoption real well. For Rachel and Thomas Dawson, their dream came true when they brought home twins from a surrogate mother for a hefty fee from Baron Bell, their lawyer. That's when the birth mother appeared and demanded more money and their twins disappeared. Brokenhearted, they've taken this case to Lizzie Fox who required the assistance of her Sisterhood friends to righ ...more
This one was just okay for me ... it was written well but didn't love the story line .. maybe they are running out of causes to vindicate and they are seeming more like terrorists in the last couple books.

Charles is back .. Yea .. Not sure when,I must have missed a book. This series is REALLY hard to keep track of. First books when they did the Original Characters quests we're fantastic. Series seems to have lost something when they split it up and was almost disappointed in the ones without Charles. He was the backbone/"Connection" for the ops, when they could do all the Intelligence work without him, it diminished his character. Still good books just not as good as they used to was.

We're at book 16 and it seems the action is a bit slower for the recent installments. Punishments are a let down and we are not finding out what they do to the bad guys anymore. The first five (5) books which included the original sisters were the best.
OK, not the best in series by far!
Another quest goes on for the vigilantes. This was a better one again. Involves 2 lawyers profiting off of surrogate mothers. After adoption takes place, the babies are then supposedly returned to the surrogate, only to be shipped off to new adopted parents for more money. What's so sad, is that this junk really happens in real life! Good topic, good book, goodread!

Recommends it for: not sure
The Sisterhood series continues. I think I enjoyed this one a little bit more than the others as it had a Christmas theme. I also feel like there are little hints that the series just might be wrapping up in the next book or two - unless it's just wishful thinking on my part. I can't believe this is the 16th book in the series.
okay, this book was terrible. i've read a lot of her past books in this series, but still got lost in all of the references...i felt like i was attending a party with mean people that were telling jokes that i didn't get...i wouldn't recommend this to anyone, and i doubt that i will pick up another fern michaels book again.

Another in The Sisterhood series, this time exposing a crooked baby brokering ring. I always enjoy these book even though they are a bit "sugar & spice", and at time a little over the top like talking to a dead daughter or a Christmas Tree angel coming alive. :)
I love this series with the Sisterhood vigilantes. It gives me
a sense of "we can make things better" in our lives and our world.
We all need the hope that our futures will be happier when we strive
for honesty and integrity in our leaders as well as ourselves.
Another good Sisterhood book continuing her series. I have to laugh reading other's reviews. It's defintely not a good idea to pick up one of these books without reading them all ~ you will lose too much with all her references from other books.
Since this is the first one of the "Sisterhood" books (this being Sisterhood # 16) that I've read - maybe I was just lost. I just thought it was an odd storyline and didn't care for it. If I had started with #1, I may have had a different response.
The Sisterhood vigilantes series has been fun (this is #16) and if you are looking for a quick read this is it. I am now at the stage where I can almost skip half the book and get to the fun part because most of them are the same. It works for me.

This was a good addition to the Sisterhood series. I really enjoy reading about the sisters and their adventures. The characters are amazing and they always come through. I highly recommend this series. Finally revenge is just!
Book #16 of "The Sisterhood" series, deals illegal baby adoptions. The heavy snows in this book tied right in with the heavy snows outside my window.

Fern Michaels isn’t a person. I’m not sure she’s an entity either since an entity is something with separate existence. Fern Michaels is what I DO. Me, Mary Ruth Kuczkir. Growing up in Hastings, Pennsylvania, I was called Ruth. I became Mary when I entered the business world where first names were the order of the day. To this day, family and friends call me Dink, a name my father gave me when I w ...more
