Fern Michaels is the New York Times bestselling author of Crown Jewel, Weekend Warriors, The Real Deal, Kentucky Rich, Plain Jane, Yesterday, and many other novels. She shares her 300-year-old South Carolina plantation home with her six dogs and resident ghost, Mary Margaret, who leaves messages on her computer.
Once the hallmark of macho fantasy, payback moves to the heart of modern romance in the spotty second installment of Michaels's Revenge of the Sisterhood series, as the heroines of Weekend Warriors regroup for mission number 2. Revenge is a dish best served with cloth napkins and floral centerpiece, according to the Sisterhood members: heiress Myra Rutledge; her adopted daughter, Nikki; Kathryn, the truck driver; Alexis, the African-American broker turned personal shopper; Julia, the plastic surgeon; Isabelle, the psychic; and Yoko, the nursery owner. It's vigilante justice for Julia this time: she's "contracted AIDS from her philandering senator husband." Frail Julia gets strength from her friends and guidance from Myra's lover, Charles, an ex-MI6 British operative and gourmet cook who plays a different kind of Charlie to Myra's Angels. ("Now, girls," says Myra, "let's devour this wonderful luncheon Charles has so wonderfully prepared so we can get to work and do what we do best: going after the scoundrels who have turned your worlds upside down.") Charles arranges invites to an exclusive Washington party where the gorgeous avengers kidnap the senator, but a good-looking assistant district attorney threatens to interfere with their plans (if only he and Nikki weren't out to right past wrongs, they could rekindle their old passion!). Michaels grinds out bestsellers by concocting videogenic plots filled with strong heroines and effortless costume changes. Her fast-paced, sentimental, occasionally silly novel puts poetic justice first; romance must wait for the next installment. (Jan.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

1 . A shoddy second story
Posted February 11, 2011 by Lanie , Louisville, ILThe first book, Weekend Warriors was basic at best, however many authors get a slow start, and since the bones of this story held so much potential I decided to go ahead and purchase this second in series book. The book was much shorter, held little detail to the extent of the revenge, and had changed some of the truthes of the first book. The discrepency of Nikki's engagement was one. In the first book they had just talked about getting engaged, in the second book they said they were in engaged. Also, the time line was off. It mentioned that there had been a five year span, however it could not have been more than 18 months. This time line is again blown in the third book when she only ages 2 years with a supposed 6 year span. Details, Details Fern, some of your readers are intelligent and will remember all of these little discrepencies. Once again, the book fell much short of the stories potential.
2 . Never p**s a woman off....
Posted August 02, 2010 by Abby , Vancouver, BCI really enjoyed this book!!! Yes, some of the dialogue was sappy, but there was a good story and the revenge was priceless
