Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Phenomenally prolific and inventive, Michaels writes traditional romances and romantic suspense, and hit it big with her Revenge of the Sisterhood series about a secret group of women vigilantes. Led by Myra Rutledge, who founded the group after her daughter was murdered and justice was not served, the sisterhood seeks payback for women whose lives have been violently derailed. In the fifth title, following The Jury (2005) and Vendetta (2005), it's Isabelle's turn for revenge by any means necessary. Several years ago, she was an architect on the fast track and hired Rosemary to help her firm meet demand, having no clue that Rosemary was so self-centered and driven she would let nothing and no one stand in the way of what she wanted and felt she deserved. This cold-blooded schemer managed to get into an accident that killed three people and seriously injured Isabelle. By the time Isabelle recovered, Rosemary had stolen her clients, her husband, and her reputation. Consequently, the sisterhood cooks up an elaborate scheme to bring Rosemary down in a very public manner. Highly imaginative and always entertaining, Michaels adds a worthy chapter to this increasingly popular series. Maria Hatton

Review

"Readers who grow weary of seeing the bad guys get away with their crimes will enjoy seeing what happens when well-funded, very angry women take the law into their own hands." --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

I've enjoyed all of the sisterhood books that I've read so far - it's nice to see someone get even for being wronged.

The sisterhood is back again and this time it is Isabelle's turn at getting even. Isabelle waited long enough and now she is mentally and physically ready to go after what is most important to her. Getting her reputation and her life back in order.

Everything was going perfect until that awful day she was driving with Rosemary Hersehy and the accident. As a result Isabelle lost her license, her business, her fiance, all her money and everything that meant anything to her.

Now the sisterhood with the help of it's newest addition Jack and the wonderful planning by Charles, Isabelle is finally going to get another chance at life.

From the moment you start this book knowing how the sisterhood works you wont want to put it down. It is fast paced and wonderfully written and I like that Ms. Michaels is bringing back a character from her one of her previous books (remember Nealy Diamond Clay the triple crown winner) and how she is going to help Myra and Charles with their latest plant.

They have to bring down Rosemary and that is the sisterhoods goal and mission and it is accomplished wonderfully and the way it is carried out is a great surpise but in the end you get what you have coming to you. Again Ms Michaels hats off to a wonderful and enjoyable book.

I cannot recommend Fern Michaels' Sisterhood series enough...and this one is as well written and compelling to read as the first four were. I am not going to give the story away. But I am going to tell you that you will not be disappointed. Cannot wait for the next installments. Keep them coming Fern Michaels.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Washington DC architectural circles, engaged Isabelle Flanders and Bobby Harcourt are the rising power couple as both are talented and successful. However, everything changes when Isabelle's assistant Rosemary testified in court that her boss ran a stop sign that killed a family who had the right of way. Stunned by the betrayal as Rosemary was the driver, Isabelle takes a second wicked blow when her employee steals her designs claiming them as hers. Strike three occurs when she loses her architectural license and strike four happens when Bobby dumps her and marries Rosemary.

The Sisterhood knows a series of injustices have occurred with Isabelle as the victim and Rosemary the culprit. They begin a campaign to right the wrong starting with getting Isabelle's license reinstated and obtaining clients for her. The second phase begins: to destroy Rosemary. They secretly let the media know the identities of Rosemary's lovers and begin sending her mail telling her they know the truth about the vehicular homicide. Bobby knows he made a big mistake when he dumped Isabelle for Rosemary.

The plot is implausible, but fans of the Sisterhood series will not care once they as judge and the JURY decides that the VENDETTA is just and PAYBACK is now. Rosemary is a nasty villainess who has gotten away with every dirty trick until now. The Sisterhood is moving on as they still struggle with loss and new personal relationships. For fans of the series only as Isabelle savors SWEET REVENGE.

I have loved all the books of the "Sisterhood Series" and eagerly awaited Isabelle's revenge. I think this book is the weak link so far in the series.

The plan for this revenge did not seem as thorough and detailed as the others have been, it seemed as though it was thrown together without the previous skill that the others were, the finale was almost not achieved and would not have been without Jack's intervention. No one but Nikki even knows of Jack's part in the Sisterhood and revenges. None of the girls, Myra or Charles wondered and/or talked about how the rest of the revenge played out and who finished it. More people all the time are figuring out and following the "LOP" and knowing too much about them and their plans.

I did not think this book had the same feeling of togetherness among the players as the other books did but I am looking forward to Fern Michaels' release of Alexis' revenge.

I did not enjoy this book as much as the others in the series. There was tooooooooooo much of the two reporters, their romance, their following the women in the sisterhoold, etc. they were annoying and not essential to the book and I hope they are not in the next book. I much preferred Mark from the previous book.

The book was about Isabelle's revenge but she was hardly in the book, nor for that matter was the sisterhood, though I must say the character of Rosemary was the best villian in the whole series.

I hope the next book is better with more of the sisterhood and their methods of revenge (and bring back the character of Mark and x-out the reports).

I really enjoyed this novel. The whole 'sisterhood' series is great. It's good to see 'good' prevail, even if it is in a fantasy. And even if it takes 'doing wrong' to correct a right. It was a fun book to read. I could hardly wait to see how it was all pulled together.
