    What happens when those in high places use their power to abuse their family, thinking they can get away with their crimes just because of who they are? That is the basic essence of "The Jury." I was intrigued by the write-up on the back of the book, however when I started reading it wasn't until half-way through the story that Paula Woodley, the victim, showed up and the real meat and potatoes of the novel started to piece together.

Having said that, though, I did enjoy the justice that was inflicted on the perpetrator. Would I read another of Fern Michaels's Sisterhood novels - not likely.

    this book was so disjointed. you spend half the book or more reading about the horse problem and THEN it switches to the wife abuse. Sometime before that you also have a problem with a lawyer.....it was like 3 stories in one and 2 were never finished. I've read other books by FM but seriously this one stunk. this book was so disjointed. you spend half the book or more reading about the horse problem and THEN it switches to the wife abuse.

    Okay, I've read Fern Michaels before and I was disappointed by this book. The story was all over the place and the book was so short. I really feel she didn't give enough time to really play out all the characters and background to make this a good book. Okay, I've read Fern Michaels before and I was disappointed by this book.

    Just too much. Theres too much going on in this story. It jumped from one situation to another without resolving some of them. It's Nikki's turn to exact out her revenge but before she makes a selection, she has a mental situation that causes her to take a sabbatical. On her return, it appears that all heck has broke loose. I like that these women are determined to exact vengeance for the crimes committed against them. They support one another and will take each other's secret to their grave. Th Just too much.

These women understand what they're doing and know that if caught, they will be prosecuted. They are a family that isn't blood relatives but a family all the same. The plot was overdone. It started with horses then moved to a judge and an attorney, and ended with a domestic violence situation. There were 2 sets of vengeance and they were truly malicious and dangerous activities.

    Bookish Enchantment (Katherine Quirke)

    This is like an ongoing soapie that snares you in because it is simple and interesting. This book did not have as much development of characters as previously and had a touch of romance to soften the revenge being undertaken.

    Once again...nothing good to say. However, I am ashamed to admit that I seem to be aggravatingly addicted. The narrator is alright as far as the main characters voice goes, but when she pulls in characters such as Myra, Charles, Jack, etc....she's totally unbearable to listen to. Remember that monotone voice from the TTS function...that would be much more suitable here. Character developments are way off the realm of description.

Stupid, guilty, chic lit pleasure that I apparently like, and love to leave comments about!

    Fern Michael's Sisterhood series continues to grow more annoying and ridiculous with each book. The Jury is the worst yet. These stories are corny, far-fetched and at this point, I'm not sure if I will see the series through. I can understand desperately wanting to see justice served, but these women take their revenge too far. I am often appalled at what they do in carrying out their (sometimes violent) missions.

    **This review is for the audiobook on Audible.** Truthfully, there isn't much I can say about Fern Michaels' Sisterhood series that I haven't already said in my past reviews, except that if you haven't started it yet, you are really missing out! In fact, I'm surprised this hasn't been made into a television series or movie. So much happens in each of these books - I cannot believe I am only finished with book 4.

In fact, I'm surprised this hasn't been made into a television series or movie. So much happens in each of these books - I cannot believe I am only finished with book 4. You definitely will want to start with book 1, rather than in the middle of the series so you can understand how and why these women joined forces to become a sisterhood of revenge. These are the only Fern Michaels' books I have read/listened to, but if her other books are this good, I'll be raving about those ones, too, soon enough! I have only listened to the audiobooks, and while I'm sure reading this series is enjoyable, I cannot imagine it being as good as the audio. Narrator Laural Merlington is outstanding! Her voices, consistency, and the way she brings the text to life, make her 100% in my book. I love everything about her performance. I'm always in disbelief that there is really only one narrator. She makes me feel like I am right there with the women, as a member of their sisterhood! The Jury: Revenge of the Sisterhood, Book 4 by Fern Michaels, narrated by Laural Merlington is well worth the credit on Audible. In fact, I have already purchased the next three audiobooks in this series and plan to download book 5 right after I post this review. I give this one a rating of 4-4.3 stars. If you like women's fiction, lots of action, and enjoy seeing the bad guy finally get what he deserves, this is the series for you! Until next time...happy listening! :-) Thank you for reading my review. I hope it was helpful.

    I'm not sure about the title of this novel although I can think of some possibilities. Although Nikki and Jack are both lawyers, they have yet to be in a courtroom setting for very long. In this novel, the sisterhood decides to avenge a badly beaten woman who is the wife of a national leader. There is a fair amount of action in the plot to keep the reader's attention. It is another good novel that provides a good escape for a few hours. I'm not sure about the title of this novel although I can think of some possibilities.

What can go wrong if Nikki spends a month or three on an Island incommunicado? Well Myra stubbles upon neglected horses and reports it, and things sotra go down hill.

Pauly Woodley was brought out to the farm nearly beaten to death at the hands of her high profile husband. Mr. Abusive husband is none other than the NSA (National Security Advisor) and best-friends with the current President. Suffice to say the girls have their work cut out for them when they take on this case. Ever hear that phrase, "An eye for an eye"? Besides that you get some good times and some sad times again. I won't spoil anything by telling you who or what happens, but I will say this, the Sisterhood looses one advisary but gains another. I give this 3.5 stars. I almost gave a whole 4 but I don't really know why but I didn't enjoy this as much as previous ones. Still love the characters, like the bit ol' romance thrown in, the payback was alright, and we even got a new name drawn.

    This is one of the most stupid books I've read. The story was all over the place - the original problem these "ladies" were supposed to solve was dropped in the middle of the book and never solved. I also think that while the idea of getting justice for those who can't get it on their own seems appealing, I think these "ladies" go way too far and the boyfriend, reporter, etc wouldn't really go along with all this.

    Just Average I have read the previous books in the series and enjoyed them. However, I was expecting more from this book. I couldn’t feel a connection with the characters, and can find nothing to like about Jack. It seemed as if the book was written just to have it written. I won’t be continuing with the series.

Again there were many editorial errors. Eg: Nikki went off to “the island” to recover from all that had happened so they delayed the next mission, Charles said they would reconvene September 1. At the end of September, Nikki was still on the island getting ready to return. According to the timeline it said it was two days from Halloween, so they actually exacted their revenge on Halloween yet no one was around! No trick or treaters etc. I love series because you get to know the characters and love them, but quite honestly, with each passing book I’m liking them less, and less, as they are mean and brutal. Blows my mind that they talk about God, then talk to “the spirit” of Barbara and plan revenge. I also found this “revenge” over the top in fantasy. The fact that they broke into the home of the National Security Advisor, best friend of the president and brutally beat him, then Jack got the three “gold shield” men of the President to come to his and Nikki’s house, and had them beaten so badly they all had to have their spleens removed, in retaliation for them beating Ted and his spleen had to be removed. And they all got away with it. The friendships and love talked about in between just aren’t enough to balance the meanness and brutal revenge for me.

    While this was a good book, I can't say its a favorite of mine of the series. Since I didn't read them in order, that could have something to do with that. I now have them lined up to finish in the right order and that should take care of that. It does give us an update on Julia, for those who have been following these stories. It also is the book where Maggie Spritzer is introduced and the other reporter Ted starts "working'' with her.

They both are looking for The Pulitzer and are only willing to work together so far. At this point of the story, their time together is just starting, its really just early days. OK, I won't lie to you "The Punishment" made me squirm but then again so did a few other books when it came to the revenge part. One thing I noticed was in the beginning part of Chapter 12, there was a statement about a certain day that they later referred to as the day from hell. And then we began to get a quick course in exactly why that was. It was a good way to describe what happens next. There are quite a few disastrous things that happen, one right after the other.

It starts out with the horses, then Jack being a jerk to Nikki...again.

Both needy, selfish and dogged for the wrong reasons. Jack got so many ppl hurt and caused many problems for the sisters. He took a step back once he got his way with Nikki but he started the snowball effect in the first place. I blame him for most of the problems everyone is facing. Each book has gotten more ridiculous and I'm not continuing in the series. I'm really not sure why this series is considered Romance.

I like a book that you are sad to finish and you think about the characters and the storyline even after the last page is read. This wasn't one of those for me. Needless to say, I don't think that I will be reading any more of the sisterhood books.

    The story continue This series is always a fun read. Fun in that everyone knows a situation that requires justice that will never happen. The ladies in this series always deliver justice that is based on the crime. Of course, this requires a suspension of disbelief when reading. It is highly unlikely that a group would get by with the crimes they commit. However, the characters are likeable and well developed. You can read these out of order and still keep up.

    This was somewhat entertaining, although entirely predictable. My problem with this kind of “series” book lies in the failure of the individual books to stand on their own. You have to read all of them to know what’s going on in this book. The author should either write a longer book or give more thought to making each individual story complete. It didn’t hold my interest enough to read another in the series.

    The Sisterhood. Six women from very different backgrounds. Their common bond is that the system did not give them justice. They band together to right wrongs. Paula Woodley is in an abusive marriage. Her husband is the National Security Advisor and a close friend of the president. He has been beating her for years. This time she barely survived. The women tailor a punsihment which suits his crime. Can they pull it off?

    Wife Beating is Not Sweet Fern Michael's is such an excellent writer that you feel you are in the book living the story. The girls who call themselves sisters worked out a plan for revenge for the wife of the National Security Advisor. He has beaten her so many times that she has many permanent injuries. The last time she was barely alive when found. You will not want to put this book down. It is engaging and gripping. Great read.

    Not impressed I read first book in this series, and had already ordered two more (not consecutive). Now I can't really even say I'm all that anxious to read the other one. First one was better than this one. They are just very dark and vengeful stories. This one seemed very choppy and meandering, quite unbelievable, and a bit ridiculous. Had to convince myself to finish it. Not impressed I read first book in this series, and had already ordered two more (not consecutive).

    This mission of course does not go as planned, and is changed along the way. I love this group of ladies that believe in vigilante justice. They don't let anyone take advantage of them or get in the way when they have done wrong. Some sad parts that break up their family some, but I definitely plan to read the next in this series until I see all girls get revenge.

    I was very disappointed in this book. Yes, it exposed a terrible crime that more often than not men get away with it. When one is very powerful in his job, that’s even worse. Because of the fact that the author had the guts to go there, I gave this book 2 stars, otherwise, it really was not good. I’m sorry about it, because I usually like most of her books.

    This is fourth in a series you will read again and again. Filled with moments of tears and moments of laughter. Loss of a sister and the reunion of soulmates. An action packed thriller that will leave wanting to read more of these feisty women.

    Fern Michaels continues to keep me entertained with this series. This was action packed and I loved the way she brought the story to tie together. I can't wait to watch the direction she is taking us and have to run and grab the next book. Fern Michaels continues to keep me entertained with this series.
