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.

Fast paced adventure for the Sisterhood. Couldn't put it down - again. I still don't love the involvement of the "second string" as they are less exciting characters. Still a good read though that left me eager to go on to the next book.

Fans of The Sisterhood will enjoy Hokus Pokus. Well-written as always and I recommend it to fans of Fern Michaels.

I understand why I love these stories so much; it is the outrageousness of what is accomplished by the group. I know it is impossible but what fun to read about it and be part of their success in the process. As always, I look forward to the next story in the series.

Good read

There was never a dull moment and even I wanted to throttle Ted! Thank you four the adventure. BTW, there isn't enough latex in this world that would fool anyone into believing that I could be a G-String Girl . . . lol

Even more, unbelieve able than the last book. Old ladies looking young again because of Latex? No way unless they are really skinny. Also, not quite believing the reason why they needed to save the day again. Yet another old old friend needing help. Ehh. not buying it.

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

Enjoyable, as are the others of this series I've read, but there are so many characters, it's hard to keep them all straight.

Although, I liked the book, it wasn't one of my favorites in the series. At times, I thought it was kind of slow moving, which is a strange thing to say about any book in this series. It just seemed to slow and bog down a bit every so often. There were certainly several different missions going on at a time. I generally get a kick out of their "camouflage" get ups but I have to admit that one of them in this book, was just a bit too hard to swallow. Even for a work of fiction, I thought it was a ...more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

After reading the Sisterhood series, I am really disappointed how this continuing series is going. The series probably should have stopped before now. The stories are getting a bit far-fetched and much more violent. I'm not liking the girls as much as I did before. I will continue to read the series as I own it...crossing my fingers that FM does the next one better. She definitely dropped the ball with this one.

This is a great book from the Sisterhood series. It is funny and still a very serious thriller book. I am not reading this series by Fern Michaels in order. I maybe should, but since I started in the middle and have been working in both directions, this review maybe tainted some. Each book in the Sisterhood Series adds members to the Sisterhood group and foils the bad guys in the end. You know they will, but still getting the end is very enjoyable and a very good read.

While this book was somewhat predictable based on the length of the series, it was a good book overall. It is always interesting to find out what the girls are going to do next!

Fern Michaels is an excellent author and has a way of putting readers rights into the story. She is one of the few authors that I can read with noise in the background, as she is capable of getting my interest so deep in the story that I block out my surroundings!

Now that the Sisterhood has foiled Mitch Riley, they have been placed in a remote mountaintop home away from home that has everything one would want, but the girls are getting homesick for the beloved USA.

Now Supreme Court Chief Justice Pearl Barnes has called on the 'chicks' to help her out, which means 'sneaking' back into the States without anyone's knowledge and help their friend. Another Fern Michaels classic!
