We finally get to avenge Barbara's death. Myra's turn! Very little takes place in China, so it's not about international intrigue! Love this series, can't wait for the next one!
The third in the Revenge of the Sisterhood Seriers A heart pounding romantic thriller. As fast-paced and exciting as always.
"Vendetta" is Fern Michael's 3rd book in her revenge series. Seven women get together every few months to plan their revenge on one person who destroyed the life of one of the women in the group. Leading the group with his expertise is Charles, an ex-CIA operative who also happens to be a great cook and Myra's live-in lover. I didn't like it as much as I liked "Payback" (haven't read "Weekend Warriors"). For one, I felt the characters' dialogue was pretty stilted, especially with Myra. Their "humorous" jabs at one another falls flat. It's Myra turn to take revenge on the hit and run driver who killed her daughter. This man happens to be a diplomat's son so he's immune from prosecution. Charles gets in touch with an old friend, Li, who lives on an island near Hong Kong. Li agrees to help Charles with kidnapping Mr. Quan by offering his runway and plane. Four of the girls, including Myra, go on the trip. They successfully complete their mission, bringing Mr. Quan to Charles' and Myra's large house/compound, keeping him in their well hidden cellar. The second issue I had with this book was seeing Myra turn so nasty. She agrees with one of the girls' idea of caning Quan and enjoys herself as she hits Quan with a cane, ripping the skin from his body. All the girls' enjoy themselves but none like Myra. Quan ends up reduced to a raw pulp of meat even though he lives through the ordeal. By doing this, I felt the girls' had become even more savage than Quan. Besides, Quan's accident was not preplanned. Yes, Quan did run after hitting the girl with his car but any court would see this as involuntary manslaughter, not first degree murder. This book left me with a yucky feeling and on top of that, I was often bored with the improbable details of the kidnapping and the womens' superficial conversations. If you like revenge books and it doesn't bother you about the differences between Quan's crime and a child rapist's action, then you'd enjoy this book.
3rd in the Sisterhead series. Just as wonderful as the first 2!
The book was fairly well written but not nearly as good as the first book in the series. Bear in mind, I LOVED the first two books in the series. In this one, there are inconsistencies in the story line, including changing the breed of a main character's dog, and the relationships between two main characters from the first book in the series. The book also features disturbing graphic violence. The violence was so graphic and gruesome that I actually wished I'd been warned beforehand so that I could have NOT read the book.
