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

The ladies strike again. This vengeance wasn't as I expected. It's still a good read that displays the prowess of this group of women. They're a unit of seven women that functions as one and can scheme with the best of them. How far they're willing to go to extract retribution. It's funny in some scenarios, thrilling in others and downright sad in others.

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

These Sisterhood books are easy, quick reads. My stomach still turns at the gruesome vengeance tactics used by the "sisters" but somehow I keep on turning the pages!

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

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.

**This review is for the audiobook on Audible.**

Vendetta: Revenge of the Sisterhood #3 by Fern Michaels, narrated by Laural Merlington is another winner in this highly rated series! I am 100% hooked, engaged, and completely into the planning, process, and outcome of each woman's story. The series follows a group of women who have gone from mostly strangers to a close-knit, loving, and caring family. How? By working toward a common goal...seeking revenge on those who have taken away the happy liv

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
This will be my last in the Sisterhood series for a while. While I totally understand the need for revenge, the graphic quality of what the group does to the man that killed Myra's daughter just turned my stomach and made me sick.

In addition, after the things they have put Jack and his friend through, I find it beyond belief that he would even consider not continuing to try and find a way to stop them. If the books were less graphic, or more about the women finding ways to prove people's guilt,
Myra had been through a lot in the past 5 years, since the son of the Chinese Ambassador, who has Diplomatic Immunity, was involved in the 'hit & run' that killed her daughter and unborn grandchild. Getting revenge for this act was difficult, but it is now in the past. The Sisterhood has completed its "Vendetta" for Myra, but also had to deal with the ever curious Jack Emery and his FBI friend as they get closer to figuring out what the women are doing. Next up to see the Scales of Justice t ...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.

I love these books, the idea behind the whole thing is fascinating, a little unrealistic in some parts but wouldn't we all secretly like to do what these women are doing..... well I know I would..... this last one worried me a little that the father of Barbara's killer would come after Myra... he would believe his son if no one else did..... started reading the next one straight away.

I enjoyed this book and was very happy that there were few typos until I came to one glaring error when he referred to Jack and it was supposed to be Mark. I look forward to reading the next in the series. I also admire the skill of the author regarding the way she assembles the plot.

I love this series by Fern Michaels. Each one is about a different woman with very troubling situations they find themselves in. And the way it is handled is so clever.

The sassy girls of the sisterhood are back, and it’s time to help Myra with her mission this time. They use a very creative way to kidnap their subject, one that no one else notices.

The reader on the audiobook was excellent. The content of the book was horrible... about performing the most terrible punishment as vengeance and that is somehow good. Yuck.

Fern Michael's Sisterhood series is very suspenseful. Ms. Michael's keeps you on your seat to the bitter end.
