Overview

The women of the Sisterhood know life isn’t fair, but that doesn’t mean they have to like it – or let it pass.

Overview

The women of the Sisterhood know life isn’t fair, but that doesn’t mean they have to like it – or let it pass. Instead, these best friends share their joys, troubles, triumphs, heartaches and one collective mission: to right wrongs and bring justice where it is desperately needed. Even reeling from the loss of one of their own, the Sisterhood is always prepared to rally behind a new friend.

For years, Paula Woodley has suffered the broken bones and shattered self-esteem caused by an abusive marriage. But what can she do? Her high-profile, Washington power-broker husband is not a man to be crossed. Or so he thinks. The Sisterhood may not be an organization found in any of his memos, but he’s about to take a meeting with them – and they’ll be setting the agenda...

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
The vigilantes of the Sisterhood take the law into their own hands once more, after devoting due consideration to exactly which law to break. Stung by her breakup with prosecutor-turned-private-eye Jack Emery (Vendetta, not reviewed), Virginia attorney Nikki Quinn allows her adoptive mother, Myra Rutledge, and Myra's solicitous lover, former MI6 agent Charles Martin, who's "on first-name terms with the Queen," to whisk her off to a recuperative tropical isle. While she's lying in the sun without a cell phone or Web access, Allison Banks, the demure associate she hired, is running her firm into the ground. Against the advice of Nikki's loyal office manager, Madeline Barrows, Allison's represented the dreadful Barringtons, con-artist neighbors whose starving horses Myra had rescued from certain death, and won them $10 million in damages from Myra. Fired and bloodied by Nikki, Allison vows revenge, but she vanishes as completely as Nikki's plan to take arms against the Barringtons. Instead, like last-minute shoppers trying to cash in a coupon before the store closes, the Sisterhood eventually goes after the president's best friend, wife-beating national security advisor Karl Woodley. The weasel is ringed round by secrecy and security, but will that stop the Sisterhood? Humph. Perennially bestselling Michaels (Family Blessings, 2004, etc.) spins a shapeless web of cliches without a trace of suspense or conviction. Even Nikki's sworn enemy Jack returns to her arms in time to taste some sweet revenge of his own.

Meet the Author

Fern Michaels
FERN MICHAELS is the USA Today and New York Times bestselling author of the Sisterhood series, Mr. and Miss Anonymous, Up Close and Personal, and dozens of other novels and novellas. There are over seventy million copies of her books in print. Fern Michaels has built and funded several large day-care centers in her hometown, and is apassionate animal lover who has outfitted police dogs across the country with special bulletproof vests. She shares her home in South Carolina with her four dogs and a resident ghost named Mary Margaret.

Biography

Born Mary Ruth Kuczkir in Hastings, Pennsylvania, Fern Michaels was married and the mother of five before she embarked on her long, successful writing career – a career that began with something midway between a challenge and a command. When her youngest child went off to kindergarten, Michaels's husband imperiously ordered her (in just so many words) to get off her ass and get a job. Long years in the domestic trenches had left her short on marketable skills, so she decided trade off her lifelong love of reading and write a book. Just like that. The domineering, unsupportive husband is history. And Michaels has gone on to pen bestselling romance after bestselling romance. Just like that..

With typical modesty, Michaels does not claim to be a great writer; however, she admits proudly to being a born storyteller. Her bulging bookshelf proves she is all over the map, producing with equal facility hot historicals, lighthearted contemporary capers, adrenaline-laced thrillers, and heartwarming tales of family and friendship. She is especially adept at writing stories about women who prevail in hard times – a reflection, perhaps, of her own struggles in her marriage and early career.

Raised to believe that the fortunate in life have an obligation to give back, Michaels devotes a lot of time to philanthropic concerns. She has established a foundation that grants four-year scholarships to needy students and has set up pre-schools and daycare centers for single mothers. She is also an avid animal lover and has been known to own as many as five dogs at a time.

In 1993, Michaels picked up stakes and moved from her home in New Jersey to a 300-year-old plantation house in Charleston, South Carolina. She and the dogs share the house amicably with a friendly ghost whom Fern has dubbed Mary Margaret. In addition to stopping clocks and moving pillows from room to room, Mary Margaret has been known to occasionally leave flowers on Michaels's nightstand!

Good To Know

Michaels confesses in our interview: "I'm a junk food junkie and a chocoholic. My desk drawers have more junk food in them than paper and pens. I chomp and chew all day long. At night I get up and eat Marshmallow Fluff right out of the jar. In between eating, I write."

Her first "sort of, kind of job" was in market research. Michaels recounts the gig's low-point in our interview: "I had a partner and we were testing a new pressurized drain cleaner. All you had to do was put this can in the drain, squeeze and supposedly the drain would open right up. It did, all right.

"The whole wall collapsed, and stuff that was in there for a hundred years flew everywhere. The lady didn't tell us the drain backed up to her kitchen drain and disposal. The company didn't care that we smelled like a sewer or that our clothes were ruined. The lady got a new bathroom, and we both got fired."

Michaels reveals some of her sources of inspiration: "Inspiration comes from everywhere. The title for Finders Keepers came from a cartoon with two chipmunks that my grandson was watching. I had a title but no story. I finally came up with one to fit that wonderful title.

"Names for characters sometime come from television. I had a character named Metaxis which is odd to begin with. There is a news anchor on T.V. who has that same last name. Sometimes it will just be a word someone says in passing, something I read or saw. There's no rhyme or reason to it. It's almost like, okay, I need something here, stay alert and it will happen."

    Love this series

    I really like this series. This women vigilante group enacts justice their own way when the law does not do it for them. I was very happy with Jack's transformation in this book, I felt it was about time. I also enjoyed the dual missions that took place. A nice ending.

    SUPERIOR READING OF SISTERHOOD SERIES

    Fern Michaels knows a winner when she writes one, so she's penning stories in her Sisterhood Series at quite a pace. Latest out of the shoot is a fourth, The Jury, another saga in the pursuit of justice by a group of seven women who some time ago decided that life wasn't fair and they were going to do what they could to tip the scales in their direction. First introduced to us in 'Weekend Warriors,' these are gals who will stop at nothing (well, almost) to protect or avenge one of their own. Now, they extend their caring arms to a new friend - Paula Woodley. She has been the victim of an abusive marriage with the broken bones and zero self-esteem to show for it. The perpetrator of such cruelty? A wealthy, respected Washington high roller, Karl Woodley, the national security advisor himself and a good buddy of the president. Paula felt she didn't have a prayer is she stood up to him - she hadn't counted on the help of the Sisterhood. Laural Merlington's reading of Weekend Warriors won me, and that appreciation grew even stronger upon hearing her narratives of Vendetta and Payback. She has a smooth, easy-to-listen-to voice that is now identified with this series. Her take on each of these intrepid women is superior. Enjoy! - Gail Cooke

    Expanded direction

    When the chosen subject for revenge was not attainable by the Sisterhood, a second subject was introduced, adding a new element to the series. New characters added room for expansion of the subjects as well as the direction that can be taken. I felt that several layers were added, allowing the action to grow in a more sophisticated manner. Characters were added that were not of the Sisterhood, and some were taken away. Circumstances moved the story in another direction. All these changes challenge the reader to grow with the premise of the series.

    Unexpected turn of events.

    I have my favoite author and I only read her books. But I must say when I was offered this book for free I took and read it and was floored. This book was extremly good and I loved each character. I felt like I was right there with them. So much so I have been telling other's and even allowing my co-worker read it, and I don't do that. I know have another female author I can look forward to reading books from. Fern Thank you so much for this suspensefull series. I am know purchasing other's in this series.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    I began reading this series mid Sept-I figured I had 8 books to read-well-I am now STILL waiting on books 9-16 to show up-having to store purchase a few other books while I wait--LOL--once book # 13 shows up I will order the remaining books 17-20 so I won't fall short on having something to read. This is an awesome series as is Fern Michaels GodMother Series-only prob I have is that the books don't arrive fast enough for me--LOL

    Highly recommended for vacation reading

    It is not necessary to start with the #1 book. I did and the entire series has been great as a "give me a break from the stress" reading, and especially in your own library (bathtub).
