Somebody needs to tell Ferm Michaels enough all ready!!! I am over amazed that this is the 17th in a series that pits a handful of vigilante women against men who done them wrong. Fern's writing is stilted and forced-and the characters are -there's no other word for it-bitchy. Why did I read it? Have you every had a good friend who guaranteed you that, if you just give this book a chance 'I promise it will be better than the first one you read?" Well, it wasn't. AND THERE'S ANOTHER ONE COMING OU ...more
I claime Sisterhood binge reading as the reason behind why it took me sooo long to finish and only gave a 3 stars. I read the previous 16 books back to back so when I got to this one I honestly couldn't take anymore. Not to say its a bad book just that too many back to back books with basically the same plot and drama happinging found my breaking point. I might reread this later..way later but for now I put it to rest.

As for the review portion....Most of it has been reviewed before the books bee

This is the worst book I have ever read voluntarily. Perhaps if I had read the earlier books in the series, I might have known what was going on in this book. As it was, I couldn't imagine caring about one single character in the story, nor about whether any character lived or died. I hated this book.

I bought "Game Over" because I was traveling and I ran out of reading material—a Wal-Mart was next to our motel in Canon City Colorado. This was the only book I thought I might possibly read, but it

Game over should be the review .. I have another 2 or 3 downloaded on my ipod or it would be Game over for this series. what started as a justice and revenge series ... now they are just annoying terrorists. I am very annoyed by them always saying they can do anything because they are woman. blah blah blah. I think they have ran that into the ground ... and their infinite supply of money is really unlikely. bottomline is this series stopped being good a long time ago and looking forward to getti ...more

Shelves: suspense
Seventeenth in the Sisterhood vengeance-suspense series revolving around a group of seven women eager to find justice for those the legal system abandons.

My Take
Michaels takes on the value of keeping one's promises. President Martine Connor has been very slack in this respect and plans a betrayal against her best friend.

You'd think that a couple who has been sleeping together and, according to earlier installments, having a good time, would have already figured out how the other likes to sleep

I enjoyed this one. Plenty of great characters (our main crew) and the introduction of a few more interesting and needed people too. The story kept me involved and made me wonder how all of this was going to work out. It kept me on the edge of my seat many times as some secrets and "red herrings" are thrown out and cause problems as the story goes along. It was good to see what Madame President has been up against. She had her hands full just trying to get things done in office let alone getting ...more

This fairy tale was over the top and too neatly tied up, but I loved it. The only thing missing was - "... and they all lived happily ever after." That said, it's time for this series to stop, for me, at least for a while. Time for a break, and this is a perfect endpoint. I think it might have actually been better if the series had stopped here, but I know that it goes on and on...

This is such a good series. This was to be one of the last books in the series but, as the ending was being played out, there was no way. The sisters seemed lost, the sisterhood is their family. I love the way they pulled off their task. Rock the White House.

In the middle of reading this book I got sick so it took me a bit longer to finish. It seemed to move a little slower and not call out to me to pick up and keep reading. But now I can't wait to see what comes next!!

I started reading the Sisterhood Series in '08. This is book #17. I read the first 8 or 9 of them, then missed books 10-14. While I am curious as to where she goes with the storyline after this book, she has lost something of the spirit that drew me to the series in the first place. I am not sure I will continue to read the series after the next book, and I will only read that out of sheer curiousity.

She has added so many characters that she's constantly reminding readers of who the characters a

I have read most of the Sisterhood books up through this one and always was rooting for the girls to receive a pardon, but now that they've attained their goal, it almost seems anticlimatic on retrospect. I'm hoping that when I read the next book in the series that the sisters are all reunited and back into obtaining justice in their own way. It will be interesting to see the relationships develop, the pregnancies, and the friendships. Should be interesting. The roles of Charles and Myra has bee ...more

Recommended to Nikki by: friends
I was pleasantly surprised. I had grown tired of the Sisterhood Series, and more or less was forcing myself to continue reading each new one when it came out. With the last several books I had been disappointed, feeling as though Fern was beating a dead horse - they were all starting to sound the same to me - nothing really new. I felt that she had worn out her welcome with this series - I was like "end it already!" I felt it was just going to go and on forever - and that with each book she was ...more

I have been disappointed in the last few books in this series. I keep reading because I have invested so much time to the books that I am hoping they get back to the writing that originally got me hooked. What I like about this series is that it introduces topics of injustice and the Sisterhood goes about finding a solution. What I dislike is that there is so much time spent on the backstory and when it gets to the point in the book that justice is finally happening it feels as though it is summ ...more
This is another good book for the Sisterhood Vigilante series--it's also the final book in the series. The Sisterhood Vigilantes waits to get their pardons signed and delivered. But there's a dilemma, a setup and some snafus. In the end, they played their final part for justice at the White House to obtain their freedom. Everyone gets a happy ending from engagements to expecting babies in all the players involved in this series. Bravo! (Now I'll be reading the earlier books in the series in the ...more

Love it, love it! Charles and Myra are now married (finally!!), Lizzie has great news and really, in fact the entire group gets wonderful news! Although I read them out of order (finished 18 first) it wasn't difficult to follow. Glad I was able to snatch #19 & #20 from the library so I can now finally complete the series. Will be sad to see it end. I've become so attatched to the characters, I feel like I know them. :)

Game Over by Fern Michaels
Fighting for what's right although they are on the wrong side, it's a worthwhile fight.
Myra and Charles are getting married and now they fight for the pardon they were promised.
The woman practice on the stripper pole to win one of their grandmother's set of pearls.
Lot of investigations take place from both the women and the men and they all come together
at the end.
Lots of surprises all around...

The Best Book in the Sisterhood Series

I have read all of the Sisterhood books up through this one and always was rooting for the girls to receive a pardon, but now that they've attained their goal, it almost seems anticlimatic on retrospect. I'm hoping that when I read the next book in the series that the sisters are all reunited and back into obtaining justice in their own way.
Brenda Benoit
Finally! I feel like things will finally start moving forward instead of stalled in place as the past several books have been. I was definitely back and forth on whether I felt Martine could be trusted or not and I like where her story is going now. My biggest complaint - enough with the idiotic arguing between Jack and Harry as it is getting downright tiresome. I'm actually looking forward to reading the next book.

'Game Over' by Fern Michaels was a wonderful rendition of how the Sisterhood rallied together for their friend and ally, Lizzie Fox. Lizzie is on the short list to becoming seated on the Supreme Court. But the girls are afraid for Lizzie because of her ties with the vigilantes and if it will hinder her changes and also they are worried about a possible delay in the pardon promised to them by the President.

A bit of lighter reading as the Vigilanties are awaiting their pardon from the President and it looks as if it may not be forthcoming. There is a rumor that Liz will be nominated to fill a soon to be vacant Supreme Court seat, but..... The vigilanties and co-horts make plans to make the outcomes are in ther favor. Fun, quick reading

Pardons were promised to the Sisterhood a few books this installment, they finally get them. There is a teaser from the next Sisterhood book, so this isn't the end of the series. I like them, but I found this one repetitive in several places. The characters are good, but let's have them do something unexpected--I mean, can Jack and Harry arguing get any dumber?
Alice Harbin
Well, if this doesn't beat all! The sisterhood appears to have lived out it's life. It's no longer a secret society, but something tells me they aren't gone yet. Everyone is accounted for and has a new lease on life; much improved. No more romancing behind closed doors. Engagements and wedding plans,even a baby on the way makes for the good life for everyone.

Great series

Great series always what to know what Those girls will do next!! Not every Writer has the gift to continue a series that keep readers enthralled throu out every book but this is one of those that have u wondering and eager to see what's next in the lives of these powerful women !!!!
I picked up this book to read on a plane and that worked. I wish I had read some of the previous books in this series before picking up this one. That said, I did enjoy the story of the vigilantes and how they were planning on getting some promised pardons from the President of the United States. I think I will go to the used book store and try to find some of the earlier stories.

I couldn't finish this one. I didn't connect with any of the characters by 1/3 of the way through. This was the first one of this series I tried. I may have liked it better if I knew the characters already.
Sara Smith
This book was a bit different from the others in the series. It's more focused on celebrating good things rather than concentrating on revenge. They start to think about how to get even w/the President for not pardoning them yet, but it becomes a non-issue.

The Sisterhood or the "vigilantes" want their pardons from the U.S. president. Will they pull off their scheme? Global Securities is there to help the women and they did work well together. A little slow at first but the book got better as you read on.
Maybe I am getting tired of the series but I think this book wasn't as exciting as the others I have read. Mostly it was about the different couples and not enough of the planning and action of the girls solving problems. Still a good series with a different twist.
