Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In Fool Me Once, 34-year-old pet photographer Olivia Lowell is shattered when a lawyer appears on her doorstep, announcing the death of her mother, whom she thought had died in childbirth. Further adding to Olivia's confusion and shock is the news that her mother left her a multimillion-dollar mail-order business, a confession, and a request that she anonymously return money stolen more than 30 years earlier to its rightful owner. The listener shares Olivia's frustration as she struggles to comply with her mother's wishes and come to terms with her life being based on a lie.

At some point, almost everyone dreams of seeking revenge, and in Sweet Revenge, architect Isabelle Flanders is no different. Several years earlier, a colleague and employee stole Isabelle's fiancé and architecture firm, then framed Isabelle for a drunk-driving accident in which three people were killed. Isabelle has finally regained her architect's license and is rebuilding her life as a single professional, but she has not forgotten what Rosemary did to her. With the help of her friends and their informal club, The Sisterhood, Isabelle arranges to have Rosemary's life come apart at the seams. Both programs, read by Laural Merlington, are professionally produced, with consistent volume levels, accent-free speech, and no background noise or tape hiss. Merlington, an experienced actor, presents a well-timed delivery with a wide range of voices that work well with both audiobooks. Of most interest to public libraries and Michaels fans; purchase where needed.
—Laurie Selwyn

Kirkus Reviews
The Sisterhood takes on yet another evildoer in their endless quest to right wrongs against unjustly maligned women. Architect Isabelle Flanders's life was destroyed when her coldly ambitious employee Rosemary Hershey framed her for vehicular manslaughter and stole her ideas and her fiance Bobby Harcourt. Now the Sisterhood (The Jury, 2005, etc.) has devised a diabolical plan to help her get revenge and recover her reputation. Wealthy Sisterhood stalwart Myra Rutledge installs Isabelle in a luxurious office and buys a Virginia property to set up a bogus contest in which local architects will be invited to design a sumptuous horse farm, planning to make Isabelle and Rosemary the only finalists. Meanwhile, Bobby, long fed up with Rosemary's greed, sues for divorce, planning to start his own architectural firm. Rosemary, who's receiving anonymous letters reminding her that it was she and not innocent Isabelle who ran down and killed a family, is sinking into a funk as the Sisterhood increases the pressure. A rainy night in a cemetery, bogus snakes and a broken rope finally get Rosemary to confess and leave the Sisterhood ready to plot their next adventure. Michaels's fan base isn't likely to be increased by this improbable distaff pastiche of Mission: Impossible.

Meet the Author

Fern Michaels

Fern Michaels is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Fool Me Once, Sweet Revenge, The Nosy Neighbor, Pretty Woman, 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 a passionate 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."

    A great series

    I still like this series. I love the idea of getting what they deserve although it is a bit extreme at times. I wish there was not so much language in it. I don't think it needs it. I will still read more.

    Highly Recommended

    I have purchased and read all of Fern Michaels Sisterhood Series, and am always eagerly waiting on the next one. So, when I was able to get this book as an audiobook, I snapped it up and loved every minute of it! The reader changes her voice when she is reading as Myra, Annie, Charles, and the rest of the group is outstanding - just as I would have imagined them talking.

    Highly Recommend

    With each book and the story of each member of the Sisterhood rights the wrongs to those who have wronged them, making things right takes planning and with the aid of Myra and Charles - what a team each makes as they unite to bring justice. Each book, each story, gets better and better. I am a Fern Michaels fan many times over.

    Disappointed :(

    Already, only at book #5 this series is becoming predictable. I have purchased #1 thru 10. I will read the ones that I have. But I most likely will not purchase the rest of the series. (There are 20) The books all have a "Charlie's Angels","Mission Impossible" theme to them.You just know how it's going to end before you even get close to the end.

    Writes easy to read and follow books, helps if you start at beginning of the series, though.
