The girls are off on another caper that this time takes some of them out of the country. Myra takes off on a crazy trucking expedition, that is so out of her realm that it becomes quite funny and unexpected. The ole gal proves to her pomp and circumstance self that she still has it. As I have said before, these books would be cozy's if not for some brutality that is needed to keep the series true to itself as a revenge story. I will definitely be revisiting this series and wonderful characters s ...more

When I first starting reading this book, I thought it was a cheesy story but as I kept reading I realized that this was part of a series of books. The premise behind the books is a group of women called the Sisterhood that spend their time putting together very elaborate ways of seeking revenge on the people who have done wrong by them or ruined their lives in some way.

This particular book was about seeking revenge for Myra (whose name was chosen next from a shoebox). Myra's daughter Barbara and

I really disliked this book. I haven't read any others in this series, so I don't know whether I just got a bad one, but I don't think I'll be reading any more of them. It felt like it was written by someone in high school.

Everything was just too convenient. They always had exactly what they needed.

I thought the dialog was utterly ridiculous; add this to the silly metaphors, and I found myself rolling my eyes A LOT.

And the revenge was also ridiculous and overly nasty. I didn't like any of the

Third in the Sisterhood suspense series which is focused on righting the wrongs done each of the seven women.

The Story
It's Myra's turn for justice and Charles and the Sisterhood plot to kidnap John Chai, the diplomat's playboy son who ran Barbara down, from Hong Kong. The ladies aren't into killing anyone and, I must say, they do find a particularly nasty way of punishing Mr. Chai that is very much in keeping with his vanity and his and his father's viewpoints.

The Characters

It isn't easy to root for the vindictive women in Michaels's Revenge of the Sisterhood series. Sure, they're loyal and fearless, and they look good in eveningwear ("We're stunning," lawyer Nikki says. "We sizzle and we look sensual"). But in this third installment of the payback saga, the six women commit a morally repugnant act likely to leave readers cold. Myra and her longtime lover, retired MI6 agent Charles, finally discover the whereabouts of John Chai, the man who killed their daughter in ...more

Okay, so I've read the first two in the series pretty quickly but have to admit this book was a little harder to stomach. The women don't really have much depth to them and to see them deal the physical punishment in this one I lost a little bit more respect and interest in them. I might take a break from this series for a bit, but will still return.

Sometime I wonder why I am reading this series. I thought it went a bit to far with the caning. I understand wanting revenge but think there could be a better way to do it. I did like what happened at the end with the mirror. Still I want to read the rest of these books.

I have been really enjoying this series. And this book was, "Brilliant and at some times squirm worthy." The squirmy part of the feelings came in when I read what the women did as his punishment. Ouch, painful. Cunning, well planned but brutal and life-long in its effects. The details could have been worse, I guess and I'm just glad that they weren't more detailed. The rest of the story, critical planning of the mission, the relationships were close and very well written. It was good to see the ...more

Justice is Served

This book is dependable good. For me, I find, that this series is interesting, but not surprising. Each of the main characters take a turn in getting revenge. In this installment it's time for Myra to seek revenge for the death of her daughter and unborn grandchild. Join this group of ladies who invent retribution for crimes that were never punished. Vigilante justice is served by these educated, strong and usually law abiding citizens.

Honestly, after reading some reviews and seeing all the hype over how supposedly violent the women are in this book, I was rather disappointed that punishment for murder was caning and that was it. One violent scene. One. Caning.

The overall story was okay. I feel like the conversations in these books are not very, mature. I mean, Myra is supposed to be old enough to have grown daughters and yet much of the time the way she speaks is like some naive 20 year old. She goes on and on about how exci

This story deals with Myra and her revenge against the man that killed her pregnant daughter. Is was well written and the revenge was just. Can't wait to read the next book in the series.

Up until a few days ago, I had never read anything written by Fern Michaels.
You know, how you recognize an authors name and just avoid the book altogether? That was what I had been doing when shopping for books. If I book had Fern Michaels' name on it, I avoided it!! I had a friend tell me years ago that she wrote the type of really fluffy and mushy stuff that I do not enjoy reading.
I have now come to the conclusion that either my friend was thinking of a different author, or she really had n

I didn't realize this was part of a series but it does stand alone. The Sisterhood is a group of women and Charles Marten who right wrongs under the radar of law enforcement. Some of their activities especially with Charles's background in MI6 are not exactly above board but they help those that have been unjustly treatment by the law.

I learned it pays to have close friends who have unique skills! A group of women form the Sisterhood and it's best not to have them as enemies. When one of them is wronged, the Sisterhood rights the wrong, even if it's outside of the law. Although I enjoyed the book, and will read the series, it's not believable that a group of women with just the right skills can come together and take the law into its own hands. I also found it a little distasteful of the means justifying the ends. Having said ...more

SECOND READ: Have been having fun re-reading some of this series. First time was about 6 years ago before our accident. This has been fun re-reading them again. Fern Michael's is an excellent writer and it makes for a very enjoyable read. This story has been very good. Recommend. Need to find the ones I haven't read and finish those. Yea!

FIRST READ: I Love the "Sisterhood" series. I've read them all but one, and can't find it...don't know the name, so am still looking and trying to figure it out

Was not a bad book; Once I found out what the story line was I really wanted to find out what was going to happen next. It is about a mother seeking revenge for the death of her daughter and unborn grandchild. The Sisterhood is seven women with different background; Myra-has money; Nikki-legal abilities; Kathryn- eighteen wheeler; Alexis-red bag of tricks; Julia-surgical skills; Isabelle-architectural expertise and Yoko-Eastern philosophies. You can't leave out Murphy who is Kathryn's dog. Also, ...more

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

Triumph, Elation, Refection . . .

Myra has waiting patiently for her turn to come up. It all started here with one act of injustice. Would the Sisterhood have been formed if this action had not been taken (or not taken) against a grieving wealthy mother with connection?

The time for retribution has come and now we will see what the ladies are made of.

Jack is still being a thorn int eh Sisterhoods side, but now he has bigger toys/bigger suspicions and more friends to help in the surveillance.

I was unable to use a computer for about 3 weeks so I just wrote down the titles, authors and rating of each book I wrote, except for this book. I was so impressed with it, that I noted I needed to find the other books in the series and read them.

It seems with each book of the series the girls take even more chances of being caught than the one before. However, I was a bit disappointed in Myra's sense of justice against the man who started it all. However, it didn't really detract from the overall antics with the oneupmanship against Jack's determination to catch them in the act or finding proof to seal the deal and showing the world how right he was about what they were up to. Do I agree? Not likely since I've seen our justice system at ...more
