Loved this Sisterhood Book. It is the ninth in the series but I have read them totally out of order and it doesn't matter. Each book stands on its own.

The participants of the sisterhood are characters that are well developed and each have their own separate and distinct personalities from Annie who is older and ready for any adventure to Katherine who appears to be harder and more grounded.

The seven friends who are also called "The vigilantes" take matters into their own hands when a severe in

I thought this book was hilarious! I mean there is g-string girls, and firecrackers in places they shouldnt be! Ha!! Im a little over Ted, but thankfully he wasnt as prominent in this book. All in all, another good addition to the series.

Ok I think I am done with the sisterhood books. They are getting really unrealistic and too violent for me. Too bad because I really kind of liked the first couple of books in the series.

Book 9 in the Sisterhood series where the ladies who are now helping Supreme Court Chief Justice Pearl Barnes who is being blackmailed by her ex son-in-law. Pearl has been doing a bit of her own underground, illegal brand of justice. Again the ladies are leaving their exile to come back to the US and hope not to be captured. Another great book in the series. The only negative I have for the book is that there are getting to be too many characters being added and to the Sisterhood. I personally e ...more

Recommends it for: Mystery and humor fans.
Judge Easter was not expecting the surprise visit from Supreme Court Justice Pearl Barnes at the time of night when everyone should be sleeping but that doesn't compare to what was told to her by her good friend Pearl.
Needless to say, after not much thought Judge Easter calls Charles Martin with a situation that can't wait to be fixed and there is not a wide window of opportunity in which to fix the problem.
On the otehr side of the world the Sisters are restless and itching to get back to the S

Ninth in the Sisterhood vengeance-suspense series based in Washington D.C. although the ladies are currently in exile in Spain and revolving around a group of women seeking a more just justice than could be found in the courts.

The Story
Supreme Court Chief Justice Pearl Barnes is in trouble. And she's not above blackmailing one of her oldest friends into helping her. When the judge confronts Nellie Easter with what she knows and what she needs, Nellie is appalled. She wants to help her friend. H

The title caught my eye right away and the synopsis sounded intriguing. This package being provided by author Fern Michaels rounded off a good deal - I simply could not resist. However ...
Well, what I found rather disturbing was that the story was introduced as a Sisterhood ... only to be organised and controlled by men. That, somehow, did not quite make sense - to me anyhow. Yes, there is a sisterhood - in fact, most main players are women who do appear to have a say in the overall matters, but

Frankly, I felt this book was shabby at best. The plot was not terrible, but the dialogue and action were all completely fantastic. And by fantastic, I mean "of fantasy," not "good." I had a hard time suspending my disbelief at the juvenile and unprofessional antics of these alleged world-class operators. In addition, Fern Michaels should probably invest in a thesaurus. She used the exact same phrasings multiple times.

I enjoyed the book and most of the characters, although it was obvious I was missing some information about them. Perhaps I would have liked it more if I had realized it's a series and this was not the first book. The plot: I group of refugee vigilantes is called in to help take down blackmailers of a judge. The judge runs an underground railroad to help women and children escape violent men.
The problem is I can't figure out what happened to get the vigilantes on the run. And I don't understand

When the Vigilantes are asked to help a Supreme Court Justice, they have to find a way to get back in the US without being caught. And what those ladies won't do in order to pull off a ruse, with the help of Charles, and sometimes they have a lot of fun in the process!

PB-B @ 2008, 5/16/13. Defying the FBI, the sisterhood comes back to the U.S.A. to help a Supreme Court Justice who is being blackmailed. Stupid, unbelievable story. I did not like it.

I liked this one a lot. It moved quickly, and was once again clever and satisfying. This Sisterhood series has me hooked. I like that each book can be read as stand-alone, but if you read them in order, you really appreciate the character growth. Such fun.

The Sisterhood was back at it again, this time helping a Supreme Court Judge and relocating to Pine Mountain in the states. Good action and some good laughs too.

Once again, quick, easy to follow, great plot but...the author is of another age, straining to be 'hip, up-to-date' and the strain shows. Reactions are way over the top with characters going ballistic over tiny things, just to show the writer has a grasp of today's language. Romance is thrown in, again with a far reach. There's always a 'tear in the eye' as their eyes meet, star crossed lovers...hmmm, no, that's wrong as I can't remember anything more than brief kisses taking place. I wish the s ...more

I always like to go back to these characters, they are fun and entertaining, a bit unrealisic, but the bad guys always get their due.

After the last couple of books in this series kind of disappointing me, this book was a welcome relief. It seemed with the last couple books the buildup to the mission was a lot more exciting than the actual mission. Not so with this book. Finally a mission that lasted more than a few pages like they did in the beginning of the series. Can't wait to read the next one to find out what Ted does next to try to bring the vigilantes down although I would love to see him back together with Maggie. Rea ...more

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
