Book Description

May 30 2006 Revenge of the Sisterhood (Book 2)
Meet the Sisterhood - seven very different women who found one another in their darkest days and formed an indelible friendship, strong enough to heal their pasts and bring laughter and joy back into their lives. In Myra Rutledge’s beautiful Virginia home, amid hugs and fresh iced tea, shrimp fritters and shell-pink tulips, the friends have gathered to embark on their second mission of sweet revenge for one of their own. Julia Webster’s husband, a U.S. Senator, has used his wife’s graciousness and elegance to advance his career even as he’s abused her trust at every turn and left her dreams for the future in tatters. Now, on the eve of his greatest political victory, he’s about to learn a serious lesson in payback. Because the senator crossed the wrong woman…and there are six more where she came from… “Revenge is a dish best served with cloth napkins and floral centerpieces…fast-paced…puts poetic justice first.” - Publishers Weekly

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

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.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Revenge Is Sweet May 15 2005
By Shari B. Itkin - Published on
The Sisterhood is at it again and the revenge will be even sweeter then it was in Fern's First book Weekend Warriors.

To the outside world Dr.Julia Webster is married to a senator who has given Julia a "gift" that is going to change her life fovever.

The mission the sisterhood has to accomplish is not easy but seeking revenge will give them the stregnth and courage they need to prevail in the mission.

The book is FANTASTIC and once you start you will be hooked until the very last page.

Now we have to sit back and wait for the next mission.

5.0 out of 5 stars JUSTICE IS ENTERTAININGLY SERVED Jan. 14 2006
By Gail Cooke - Published on
Format:MP3 CD
Laural Merlington proffered an aces reading of "Weekend Warriors," the first novel in Fern Michaels's celebrated Sisterhood series. She delivers again with a robust, easy to listen to telling of what these seven dauntless women are up to now. Many will recall that the women are bonded not only by deep friendship but also by a desire to right wrongs. And, when this group gets together over sparkling iced tea and shrimp fritters, someone better look out.

In "Payback" that someone is Julia Webster's husband, a U.S. Senator. Turns out that the politico isn't all his press office says he is. Julia has suspected this for a bit, realizing that her partnership with him has advanced his career to the detriment of her own. But, now that she knows he's also a philanderer it's time for revenge. In her case revenge will be mighty sweet.

The cast of characters becomes even more endearing with the second in Michaels's series, especially Charles, who is not only Myra's lover but also a gourmet cook, and Isabelle who is blessed with psychic powers.

Justice has never been so entertainingly done - give a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Payback by Fern Michaels April 4 2006
By Donna R. Richardson - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In order to understand Payback and other books in this series,

You have to put yourself into the shoes of the characters who

have been failed by the Justice System. If you had the money

to correct such a travesty, what would you do? Fern's series

of Weekend Warriors is not for the usual romantic fiction

reader. If you want sweet romance, go elsewhere. If you want

excitement, fun, sense of belonging to a special "family" and

revenge even when you have to give up what you want for the

good of the group, then by all means enjoy this series.

Someone else reviewed this series after reading one book...

that's not possible and the books are not "disjointed." The

series is for serious, adult, educated, highly functional

3.0 out of 5 stars So what is right and what is wrong? Nov. 14 2006
By Jorge Frid - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The book's story'll keep you reading but at the end when the bad guys are seen as good guys and vice versa you'll be disappointed. I know that sometimes the bad guys had to win but in this book this people would never be caught and the writer wants us to think that their job is the correct one. This is the second book of the series that I read and I'm not willing to read anymore unless someone give it to me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Preposterous Feb. 3 2009
By Tara - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the second in the Sisterhood series. The Sisterhood being 7 female vigilantes that have been wronged by the American justice system. I enjoyed the first one, but this one was ridiculous. First of all, I had a hard time believing that a local lawyer is going to actually sell most everything he owns and take a month leave of absence from his prestigious job just to spy on these women. Jack is a very annoying character and if he is in the other books, I may not bother to read them. Anyway, this edition of the Sisterhood is about exacting revenge for Julia, a doctor married to a philandering senator that gave her AIDS. There was no real tension or suspense leading up to the vengeful moment and the outcome was ridiculous and displeasing. Are we really to believe that a bunch of HMO people were just secretly spririted to Africa and hypnotized and forced to work on a farm? Get real. I am not completely giving up on the Sisterhood series, but I hope the rest of them are better.
