Never a dull moment with the Sisterhood. And after 29 novel, you'd think the faithful followers of this exciting series would be bored? Absolutely not. Still one of my favorite series from one of favorite authors.

It's hard to believe this is book 30 in the Sisterhood series.  All the regulars are back to help out Countess Annie de Silva who has disappeared.   The ladies are all worried and Myra focuses the search in the mountains of Spain where Annie spent a lot of her younger years.   I enjoy this series and many of Fern Michaels numerous books but this story seemed a little rushed at the end.  The story was just a little slow to develop and the conversations seemed stilted and forced. Readers who like the series will enjoy but as a first book to new readers it will seem a little bland.  I received a copy of this ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Description
The Sisterhood: a group of women from all walks of life bound by friendship and a quest for justice. Armed with vast resources, top-notch expertise, and a loyal network of allies around the globe, the Sisterhood will not rest until every wrong is made right.
 
It’s been three months since Countess Annie de Silva slipped away from her home before dawn, leaving a cryptic note and no clue as to her destination. That’s an eternity for friends as devoted as the Sisterhood. Now they’re desperate to ensure that their founding member is alive and well, and that means tracking her down—wherever in the world she might be.
 
Myra Rutledge, Annie’s closest confidante, knows the secrets of Annie’s past, including the remote mountain in Spain where Annie spent some of the best—and worst—days of her life. Annie vowed that she’d never return to the mountain or the stunning monastery there. But the memories of the past have called her back. Now, she needs allies who are fearless, loyal, and willing to do whatever it takes to see justice done. And with the safety of one of their own on the line, the Sisterhood won’t let her down . . .  

My Review
Fern Michaels has done it again with Cut and Run. The sisterhood is at it again trying to solve what happened to Annie. Every new book is even better than the last one. The characters are well written and it's a fun read that keeps you wanting more.

I received this ARC in exchange for my honest opinion and my recommendation is - get your copy today. I love it!!

This novel deserves a solid 3 stars.  This book is true to Fern Michaels style of writing.....a little cheesy ...a little preachy at times .... a lot  of unnecessary dialogue ....but, it did hold my attention enough to read it in one day!   At the start of the series, the books were fresh and fun to read.  This book is her 30th. book (I think!!) of the series and it is getting a little worn out.  Michaels needs to retire the girls and guys of the Sisterhood and start a new series.  This book is for true die hearts of Fern Michaels.  For the rest of us, I would wait until it comes out in the library!

I would like to thank the author, the publisher and NetGalley for an advanced copy of this book in return for an honest and unbiased review of this book

It's been a while since I read one of the books in this long running series. This story is up close and personal to Annie De Silva and even as she tries to leave all her friends and allies behind when she responds to a message of distress from the priest at the little Spanish town where she owns a mountain top castle she'll find that her friends and family will make a difference in the outcome of her story. 
Even though Annie has slipped away in the middle of the night with a request that her friends not try to follow her it takes the girls and boys 3 months before they decide enough is enough and come to her rescue. A good thing it was for Annie because she definitely needed the help. 
First Myra managed to find her way to the mountain stronghold and then escaped from Annie's captors to be able to give Charles and the rest of the team the story. Annie herself finds help in very unexpected ways until she and her rescuers can be reunited. 
It is nice to revisit and catch up on what's going on but for me this series has had its day.

This is the 30th book in this series. Can be read alone or in the series. It was a good story but slow to start. It wasn't one of her best works but still very enjoyable.

I always love Fern Michaels' books, but especially ones about the Sisterhood! I can't get enough about them and how they help each other and others. This book tells us more about Countess Annie de Silva and what happened to her before she joined the sisterhood. No spoilers here, but I am so excited about the end of the book and can't wait for book #31!

Fern Michaels does it again, in this, the 30th book in The Sisterhood Series. Reading these books is like coming home. You know that the Sisterhood will be presented with a challenge to solve. It’s just a matter of how they come together and decide what needs to be done to meet this challenge. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot line presented here. It was nice to have some others involved in helping to solve the problem at hand. It was also great having the boys working with the sisters. However, note that there is less detail included during the resolution phase. The Sisterhood is typically a little more “physical” when punishing the ‘bad guys’. That being said, it was still an enjoyable read, and I look forward to the next in the series. Thank you to NetGalley, Kensington and Fern Michaels for the opportunity to review this book.

Congratulations to this wonderful author who has managed to grab the reader and keep them entertained through adventures, tears and laughter!  I loved this title just as much as I loved the other 29 in this series and can only hope The Sisterhood just keeps on going and going!  Thank you for giving me the opportunity to read this book prior to publication---I loved it!!!!

This women’s fiction story was an easy read, and I read it all in one day with time to spare. For me, the book was not exciting and a bit of a struggle. It seemed like members of the Sisterhood/brotherhood acted on impulse without thinking of consequences. It also lacked depth and was predictable. I have not read the other 29 books in this series, so maybe I missed part of the nuances for that reason. After 30 books it might be time to retire the series. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and Kensington Books. Opinions expressed, are my own.

Who knew this author grew up just 3 hours to the far left of my state. Or for that matter, who knew her real name wasn't FERN? ME! OMG! Newbie writer, reader, reviewer here.
My 2nd home was and still is the library. It's where I went to feed my kids, to get educated, to help my kids enjoy the love of reading, and to eventually find myself and my talents lost in a book. Actually make that many books over 1k reads a year.
So, do me a favor read Fern's bio as you'll learn so much like I did about her.., "When my youngest went off to Kindergarten, my husband told me to get off my ass and get a job. Those were his exact words. I didn’t know how to do anything except be a wife and mother. I was also a voracious reader having cut my teeth on The Bobbsey Twins, Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, Cherry Ames and the like. The library was a magical place for me. It still is to this day. Rather than face the outside world with no skills, I decided to write a book. For some reason that didn’t intimidate me. As my husband said at the time, stupid is as stupid does. Guess what, I don’t have that husband any more. Guess what else! I wrote 99 books, most of them New York Times Best Sellers."
Is this not fascinating? My god I think we married the same man?!
Can we not just all stand up and give her the applause she deserves!
What a true inspiration for us all!!
I had no idea...but luckily she worked through it as I think I'm following in her footsteps.
I have three teens and have been told that," I don't deserve a break till my kids are 18." Oh, and don't forget the famous line, "Get a job." Of course, he failed to mention he'd hide in the woods and refuse child support for over a year while we lived on credit cards w/o a home or job to survive.
Just like this author I've attempted to crawl back out, since 2010, following separation and subsequent divorce in 2013. Needless to say even with a dual masters + 20 yrs volunteering and every accolade ie. high honors & with national awards for public service - non of it matters with a wage gap in employment.
I sit typing this in extreme poverty praying for a miracle. As my teens are now 19,16, and 13 and the father has only weekend visits and couldn't care about their needs and wants. IE. College, cars, lab tops, proms, class rings..You know all the expensive items.
Ok, I digress, this book was a good read and I truly enjoyed it!
Countess Annie de Silva where are you?
Her friends are worried as they are a 'sisterhood'.
Could she have left to go back to the mountain in Spain- a spot where both her best and worst days were had?
Could she have been called back to the monastery?
With pinpoint accuracy and thrills this one will have you wondering, waiting, and hoping for the best.
Loved it!

I've read quite a few books in this particular series.  They generally fell into one of three categories for me.  I either thought it was Just Okay, I liked it or I loved it.  This one is a solid I liked it.  
I will say that I thought Myra made kind of a bone head decision when she went haring off to try to save Annie.  But I get her emotional motive too.  She loves Annie like a sister and has for years; they are tight. 
This time around Annie and Myra are more all on their own.  They encounter unusual circumstances but also some unusual help too!
Not to worry their "Calvary" does show up to help them.  Their Calvary included both the female and male versions of their select group.  That included multi-talented Cyrus who finally gets to put the bite on someone in the story.  For those of you who don't know Cyrus is an unusual dog who owns Nikki and Jack.  And he would be highly offended if anyone was to call him just a dog.  Although in this story his quirkiness isn't as up front as in the other stories.  
I will say that even if you haven't read any of the other books in this series, it would still be pretty easy to follow.  You'd miss some of the background that would have added more depth but you wouldn't get lost. 
I also liked the touch of softness that we got to see with Avery Snowden, the super spy. 
Everything comes to a good conclusion which is covered in the Epilogue.  With a sweet surprise that Annie, The Countess helps bring about.
However, I sure would have liked to see more of what happens to Enrico.  In the "old days" of this series there was more of a punishment that fit the crime and we would see where the villain ended up. I know it might not seem nice but I miss that.   Only part of the move against him was seen. The rest was left to the imagination once Snowden helped remove him.  It was like "pouf" he was just gone.

This is the first I have read of the Sisterhood series. And this is the 30th book! I enjoyed this one. A page-turner, and yes I stayed up until I finished. Anna and Myra are wonderful! Fern Michaels does not disappoint in this Sisterhood series. 

Thank you to publisher and NetGalley for eARC

I"m a huge fan of Fern Michaels and love the Sisterhood series.  This latest installment felt a little short, but still had all the good parts ;)  My favorite vigilante team is at it again, the guys and girls worked together on this one to help one of their own!

I love the sisters and their men and most assuredly their fur friends!  This book is just another example of why.  I don't know if I love it when Annie and Myra get into trouble too just find their way back to one another again or when they all are involved but I am completely hooked when everyone works together.  What I do know is that I'm never disappointed in these! Always a winning combination and here's to thirty more!
