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

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.

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

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!

These books are stupid. I have no idea how Fern Michaels got so popular.

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
I like the ladies for

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.

Fern Michaels isn’t a person. I’m not sure she’s an entity either since an entity is something with separate existence. Fern Michaels® is what I DO. Me, Mary Ruth Kuczkir. 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 ...more
