Celebrate With The Sisterhood
Thanks to a presidential pardon, the Sisterhood can put their fugitive days behind them and resume their lives in peace. Still, all the women admit that lately things are a little too calm and peaceful. Meeting up for the first time in months to celebrate Kathryn's birthday--in the City of Sin, no less--seems like the perfect antidote.
But before they can kick up their heels something too big to pass up is dropped into their laps. The time has come to deal with Enemy #1, a/k/a Hank Jellicoe. Wanted by the FBI, the CIA, and Homeland Security for starters, President Connor herself has run out of patience with their lack of results. Only the Sisterhood, with their special blend of guts, imagination, and friends in all places are capable of pulling off the impossible--of hunting down this monster and taking him out once and for all...Praise for Fern Michaels and her Sisterhood novels. . .

1 . you've got to be kidding
Posted December 19, 2011 by stephanie v. , maple ridge, bc, canadaUnless you've read ALL "sisterehood" books before this one you won't know what is going on. DO NOT BUY IF YOU HAVEN'T READ ANY BEFORE DEJA VU. I felt like reading the last chapter of a very long book where everyone and everything is falling into place, yet I don't know the players or the pieces. Like being at a party where you don't know anyone, yet they know each other. FERN MICHAELS, YOU LET ME DOWN. I READ MANY OF YOUR BOOKS, MOST ARE IN MY PAPER LIBRARY; NEVER AGAIN, GIRL.
2 . you have to know the series
Posted January 24, 2011 by abby , vancouver, bcI have been following the series from the begining. Yes, the writing can be a little predictable at times... but if you have been following the series from the beginning...you understand the characters and is familiar with the plots!!! I am addicted to this series because is fun, enertaining...fluff reading. I look forward to books like this when I have finished a long, emotional book that I am completely drained with, and all I want is something silly and easy to read!!! This book has some substance to it....so it wasn't as predictable as some of the other books in the series have been. The "sisterhood" was stong and thriving and the "brotherhood" was as entertaining...and silly...as in previous books. I really enjoyed this book and will look forward to the next installment.
3 . Good Read
Posted January 16, 2011 by marcia stauber , palm beach gardens floridaAgain a good story. This series seems to get better with age which is something hard to do. The charachters seem to keep growing and maturing, but never stop surprising us. The writing issharp and never dull. Good read.
4 . Tired
Posted January 05, 2011 by Lizabet , TorontoIt really is time for this series to end. This book emphasized how 'dumb' the men are and compared to the early books did not have a good plot line. It was OK but I am really glad that I read the public library copy rather than spending money on it.

Excerpt from Deja Vu by Fern Michaels
Maggie Spritzer entered her office, turned on the lights, closed the door, kicked off her high heels, tossed her backpack in a chair, and sat down behind her desk. She wiggled her feet into a pair of scuffed sneakers without heels and settled down to do what she had done at 5:45 in the morning every day since becoming the EIC--read the current edition of the Post just as it hit the streets.
She could have read or skimmed through the online edition, but she was a newspaper person with every bone in her body. She was one of those people who needed to hold the paper in her hands and get black newsprint on her fingers. She was also the kind of person who would never, ever read a book on a Kindle or any of those other electronic devices. In her opinion, there was something bordering on the sacrilegious about doing that.
As she scanned the front page, her left hand was fumbling in the bag of sugary donuts she'd stopped to purchase on her way to the office. As her eyes followed the printed columns, her right hand was removing the lid of one of the two coffees she'd purchased at the donut shop.
Speed reader that she was, Maggie ripped through the paper, then went back and started over. The second time, she picked out a column, a tidbit, or a story that had caught her eye on the first go-round.
An hour from now, if given a quiz, Maggie would ace it, right down to the page and size of the article she was being quizzed on. "It's why they pay me the big bucks," she muttered to herself.
She frowned when she saw it on the Police Beat page. She read through the two-inch notice, then read it a second time. She saw notices like this every day. Why was this one bothering her? It was not until the third time she read it that she made the connection. Upscale medical building torched. Four offices burned beyond repair. Everything destroyed, including the medical files of the patients in each of the offices. Dermatology, OB-GYN, Plastic Surgery, Podiatry. Okayyy.
Building owned by the four doctors, who had been partners since 1983. Thriving practices. So what was it that was bothering her? She read the names of the doctors again and again, then one final time before it jumped out at her. Dr. Laura Valentine. "Yesssss!" Julia Webster, one of the original vigilantes, had worked with Dr. Valentine. Julia had been a well-known plastic surgeon before her death.
The fire marshal was going to hold a press conference later that afternoon. Maggie made a mental note to tune in.
Maggie stared down at the address, her mind racing. She swept everything aside, turned on her computer, and hit the Google search button. She typed in Julia Webster's name and waited. She read slowly, then clicked link after link until she had the full story on Julia Webster. Tears burned her eyes at what she remembered that had never been printed.
Scissors in hand, Maggie went back to the paper. She clipped the article on the fire, feeling sure that it meant something. What, she didn't know. Yet. But the prestigious address in Georgetown was now engraved in her brain. Sooner or later, she'd figure it out. She always did.
Maggie peeled the skin off a banana and sat back in her swivel chair as she wondered how long it would take before she figured it out.
She bolted upright in the chair. Backup! Surely the doctors had a backup system in place in case something like this happened. Computers crashed. Viruses appeared out of nowhere. And then there was the patient confidentiality problem to deal with. About a year ago, Ted had done a lengthy article on how businesses used outside backup systems just in case something like the fire happened. But if memory served her right, it was mostly small businesses and not medical offices because of the patient-doctor confidentiality thing. In the unlikely event the doctors didn't have outside backup, it might mean they had their own personal software in place if something just like this took place.
