This book in the series seemed unfinished. Fern Michaels normally cleans up the loose ends in the epilogue, but not this time. Did Isabelle keep the architect offices? What about Bobby, her ex? That was left unresolved. Fern even had an opening for Isabelle to explain her side of things and for Bobby and her to get on the same page about what happened, but instead she had Isabelle push him out the door and that's it. Case closed. A bit more time should have been spent on this one instead of ...more

The book I’m reviewing today is Sweet Revenge by Fern Michaels it’s a Fiction story. Michael’s main theme in the sweet revenge there are some thing that a group of gracious ladies just can’t over look & doing one of their friends dirty is at the top of the list.

This story pertains to Isabelle's revenge. It was well written and the revenge was fun to read. Can't wait to read the next book in the series.
Revenge is a common theme in literature, drama, and other arts, popular because the desire for revenge is an easily understood emotion. In many of these works, tragedy is compounded when the person seeking revenge realizes he has become what he wished to destroy. However, in Fern Michaels SWEET REVENGE the execution and fulfillment of the revenge scenario is depicted as satisfying and cathartic.

If emotional detachment and planning are the best means by which to exact one’s “pound of flesh” then

My best friend's mom got me started on this series with the first five books. This is a series of 20 books that lead you on the adventures of several women seeking revenge for crimes the court system couldn't or wouldn't provide well deserved justice. They have the financial backing and resources to formulate well thought out plans and see them through to complete them. Each mission takes on new danger and suspense and the lines between legally right and morally right become blurred. Even those ...more

Book 5 in the Sisterhood series, this time it's Isabelle's turn for revenge.

Isabelle was a very talented architect, engaged to be married to fellow architect Bobby. She worked with Rosemary Hershey, who was jealous of Isabelle. Rosemary was driving a car with Isabelle in it when she ran a stop sign & the resulting accident killed a young family. Isabelle had been taking many doses of cough syrup for a cold and was knocked out in the accident with no recollection of what had happened. Rosemar

I might have missed something here, but I have no idea how the problem was solved. This book just seemed like an excuse for a bunch of older gals to pretend to be rock stars.

Isabelle Flanders was an architect, one of the most successful around. She hired an assistant, Rosemary, who seemed to be wonderful at first, but she ended up taking credit for work she didn't do, framing Isabelle for a drunk driving accident where Rosemary was the driver, and stealing her fiance. She calls upon the Sisterho

I liked this one, but it didn't have the fire of the first few in the series. It focused a lot on the target, which certainly provided perspective, but I missed the ink that was formerly devoted to developing the core characters. Even Isabelle, whose mission this was, seemed neglected to me. She really wasn't in the story very much. There was also a plot inconsistency that was unexplained, and that bothered me. (The bit about Rosemary's invitation - this doesn't give anything away by means of a ...more

The Sisterhood is working at getting some sweet revenge for one of their own, Isabelle Flanders. Her former colleague Rosemary ruined Isabelle's career, standing in the architecture's community and stole her fiance. Now it's payback and the sisterhood is going after Rosemary.
I really liked this book but didn't do my homework ahead of time and didn't realize it was book 5 of a series. So I was lost for the first few chapters. But Fern Michaels did an excellent job of character and story descripti

Isabelle's turn for revenge on Rosemary Hershey. Rosemary was driving the car that ran a stop sign and killed a family. Isabelle was in the passenger seat but in the aftermath of the accident Rosemary said Isabelle was driving. Rosemary also contrived to steal Isabelle's business, fiance and win a law suit naming Isabelle. The plan for justice was more crafty than violent this time. The gold shields are still lurking waiting to settle the score with Jack and Ted. Jack is able to bale the women ...more

The Sisterhood series by Fern Michaels are very entertaining, quick reads. The characters are likeable, unique women who you envision to be your neighbors. The stories move at a nice pace and although you know that justice will prevail at the end, Michaels always throws in a couple of twists and turns in to keep you engaged.

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

Totally different than my usual genre. I struggled between 2 and 3 stars. I ended with 3 stars because the book reminded me of my childhood days and my devotion to Charley's Angels TV series. As with the TV show, the story is completely implausible. The author did do a good job of creating the characters, as silly as they are. She also demonstrated imagination and descriptive writing skills. Again, I doubt I would have endured the book had it not had an element of sentimentality. I must have ...more

In all fairness, I didn't really read this book. I only got to page 67. That was enough for me to figure out this was a later book in a series and there was a lot of back story that I didn't know. That, combined with multiple swear words made it hard for me to enjoy so I decided to just skip it all together. So, its off my "paperbacks to read" shelf (in my house, not on Goodreads!) and I'm on to something else.
Dec 24, 2009 Beth rated it did not like it
I bought this book for 50 cents and that is what it was worth. It's a good read for the beach or river since you won't care if it gets wet or lost. The storyline is fine, but the writing is so terrible. The author uses the "F" word, but won't use the "S" word. She calls it the "brown stuff." It's actually rather funny in a way, but I'm pretty sure it isn't supposed to be!
The Ladies of Pinewood are again out to avenge one of their members. This time the gang is out to trap an architect who not only stole drawings from her previously employer but also framed her as the responsible party in a deadly car accident.

Once again Fern Michaels spin a fun plot using the flaws of the target to con her, Good fun.

This was my first Sisterhood book. I know I should not have started with anything but book 1. I checked from the library and was not aware it was a series. I have liked all the previous Fern Michaels books, but did not like this one. I almost put it down without completing, but did read to the end.

Won't be reading any of the other Sisterhood series.

It was okay, but the language was not good, which was a negative for me. Also it appeared to be a sequel, or part of a series. Although the author tried to explain things, having not read the earlier books seemed to diminish the experience of reading this book. It would have been nice if it had been a stand alone read, but as it was I felt as if I stepped into the middle of something.

This book in the series really caught my attention. I just was a little surprised at the revenge metered out because I was thinking about the previous books. That didn't matter because Ms. Michaels had me from page one. The story places the reader in the middle of the actions while you feel like these people are family. . . Book 6 here I come. . .

Though I am not a "sister" I really enjoyed this book by Fern Michaels. This is the first of the five Revenge of the Sisterhood series and I will start looking for the others. The plot is certainly interesting and the by-play between the characters is well done. I enjoyed it.
