Real page turned. Couldn't put it down. Little bloody and violent, but not as gory as some of Patterson's books. Plot kept you guessing.

The characters in this series are engagingly strange. The writing is sort of a cross between Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, Hiiassen's characters, and the old TV show MASH. This first book gets everyone introduced and events rolling. The series just gets better with each book.

"There are some things that a group of ladies just can't overlook--and doing one of their friends dirty is at the top of the list.' Can the Sisterhood reek reven on Rosemary for framing Isabelle in a drunk driving accident to stealing her husband?
I would love to have friends like the women in the Sisterhood. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
