Overview

The fifth in the Revenge of the Sisterhood series Isabelle Flanders had everything: her own architectural firm, her fianc? Bobby, a life she deserved. Until Rosemary Hershey came and stole it all. Took her reputation, her clients, her man, and even framed her for drunk driving—killing three innocent people in the process. The loyal Sisterhood agree: Rosemary has to be punished, along with the conniving Bobby. Isabelle has learned to endure, running, hiking, pushing her body to its limits and working all-out to get her license back. Now it's time to do more than to endure. It's time to hand out some justice.

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.

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.

The Sisterhood Series is excellent reading. Just finished Sweet Revenge and am starting on Lethal Justice. Highly recommend.

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.

Midna rolled over. She couldn't sleep. She sat up and stared out across the field at the fires of Ganondorf's troops.<p>Sighing, she got up and very quietly made her way down the hill.<p>In the camp, it was horrificly loud. There was a large bonfire in the center of the camp, and it was obvious they were celebrating.<p>~Celebrating the death of the royal famiy, l suppose.~ she thought angrily.<p>She heard a knicker behind her, and was about to turn and start scolding Snowfire for following her, but she stopped.<p>The horses.<p>~Why didn't l think of that!~ she thought.<p>Midna quickly made her way over to the horses. She untied their teathers, letting them loose. The horses took off running up the hill towards her camp.<p>She snuck around and stole all of the troops" meat, which was their main food.<p>Midna went back to her camp and hid the stolen food. She curled up in the tree, and fell fast asleep.<p>&#160<p>This one was a little boring again. I just couldn't figure out what to do for the story. Please comment!<br> &#160 &#160 &#160 &#160 &#9830 &#167&#359&oslash&pi&#1084&beta&pi&iota&#565g&epsilon&pi<_>99 &#9830

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.

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.

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.
