Another great book by Fern Michaels! I love the Sisterhood series and this one is about Alexis, fertility clinics, and con artists. I love how much the Sisterhood goes to bat for the underdogs and take care of each other!

Bella and Andy met, fell in love, and married after a short time. Andy, who was in the military, deployed and never came back.  Bella was upset and had no idea what was going on, since she had no word from or about Andy, so she proceeded, after a time, to divorce him, figuring Andy had decided it had all been a big mistake.  The day she divorced, Bella found out Andy had been killed while on duty.  However, for some strange reason, she found he had never changed his military records, so his half-sister inherited everything Andy had, which was quite a lot of money. Now, Bella pursues Andy’s sister, with the help of the Sisterhood, to find out what really happened.

As usual with this series, the way the Sisterhood operates and ends things is way beyond belief.  I think reader just enjoy the fact that, in the series, women managed to do so well so consistently, that they really do not mind how unbelievable things are. The Sisterhood was out in full force with this book, doing a lot of what they normally do.  However, there were no disguises or crazy events/actions, as in the other books.  The ending came quite abruptly, with no time spent on just how they were going to and got retribution for Bella. In addition, unlike in previous books, they brought Bella right into the process from the outset, which made me wonder if the author is planning to make her a new member of the group in later books. There also were not a lot of the Sisterhood actions/reactions the other books have had, which made this one sort of fall flat. Frankly, it may be time to move on to a new series because I think this one may have worn out its welcome. I know the author started one for the men associate with the Sisterhood, but based on my reading, it is not nearly as good as this series. Finally, there was little character development in this one, but, for readers of the series, after so many books, that probably is not necessary at this point. However, for the reader new to the series, I could see where this might present some problems understanding and appreciating the story line and characters. Still, readers of the series might like this addition.  Personally, I found it rather lacking and not all that compelling a read. Too much left out.  Too hurried.  The ending was really rushed, so that, before I knew it, I was on the last page, still feeling, wanting, and hoping more would occur. I received this from NetGalley to read and review.

I've always been a big fan of the Sisterhood series and I wasn't disappointed with this book. Familiar characters and a superbly crafted plot give you an enjoyable n reading experience. Bella is a young militia widow whose sister-in-law has stolen her inheritance. Enter our favorite vigilante group to save Bella.

This was a roller coaster ride, it started off slow, picked up and then crashed. I don't think I've ever read a book where it's exciting in the middle and then someone figures out the entire mystery and it ends.  

This was my first Fern Michaels book and it was a little lackluster for me. I may have enjoyed it more if I had read her prior books in the series. The book was well written and enjoyable so I will try reading again after I've read others in the series.

Truth and Justice is the latest int he Sisterhood series is by Fern Michaels. These books are focused on the relationships between the women, and how woman support each other through dark or difficult times. 

The premise of this book was a little bit more far fetched than prior books in the series. Bella met and married Andy in a very short time, and they had only a two-day honeymoon before he left for his next tour of duty. No one knew that they got married. Bella didn't get any letters, correspondence, anything, while Andy was away. She's later notified that he had been injured and died some time ago, but no one knew that he was married. In the meantime, his sister inherited everything, even though he had filled out all of the paperwork to leave everything to Bella, but it never got properly filed.

This is where the women come in to save the day. Their friendship is a blessing for Bella. The strength of their friendship is what pulls her through. It's always good to read of women helping women and friendship helping through the dark times.

I decided to read an advanced copy of this book because both of my grandmothers were big fans of Fern Michaels. I tried to get into this book but I just could not do it and decided to DNF it. I do think the premise of this book was good but I could not get into it. I do look forward to trying more books by this author in the future.

Fern Michaels is an author that I can always count on to give me a great read and this book about sisterhood vigilante justice was no different.  It is part of a series, but I haven't read any of the other books in the series.  However, I do not feel like that took away from my enjoyment of this book.

Truth and Justice is the latest in the popular Sisterhood Series by Fern Michael. The heroine is a young lady who married her military hero husband for love after she had known him only a short period of time. She quickly becomes frustrated and disillusioned when she does not hear from him and turns to an attorney to dissolve the marriage that had barely started. Hard pressed for money and emotional over this difficult decision she meets an unlikely friend in a bar. This friend changes her life and starts the journey to solve the mystery of our heroine's husband. Is he really the jerk he appears to be and how can the mystery of so many unknowns about him be solved? Enter the Vigilantes. This is a fun book. It has a lot of twists and turns and the Vigilante's themselves are interesting characters. If you want pure entertainment and a fun read turn to this book. Thanks #NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review #NetGalley#TruthandJustice.

This was a good book, but a little hard to follow at times.  It seemed like it jumped in places and I wasn't sure where they were at.  The story line was interesting.

This is a well written, clever story with a little romance and fun characters. I was interested to find out what happened after Bella learned her husband had died and her estranged sister-in-law exhausted all the funds, leaving Bella with nothing.  I really felt for Bella.  I despised the sister and thought she was creepy! I was glad that Bella hired a team of women to help her solve the mystery of the missing money so that she could move on with her life and get a fresh start. I would definitely recommend this book for readers that like a good mystery to solve!
Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the ARC in exchange for my honest review!

The Vigilantes strike again in this fast paced new story by Fern Michaels. Poor Bella signed her divorce papers and then learned her husband had died all in one day. The plot is complex and the why takes some time for the Vigilantes to figure out when it is right in front of their eyes. Who knew Alexis going over and talking with the crying woman at the restaurant would end of leading them to their next case seeking Truth and Justice.

I enjoyed trying to figure out the missing pieces surrounding Bella and her husband, Major Andy Nolan. There were a lot of twists, turns, and dead ends which I enjoyed. I was so glad there was an epilogue. I received and advance copy of this book and I willingly chose to write an honest review.

This book had me from the moment I started it until the very end and I finished it in one day!  Bella meets Andy, falls in love and they marry.  Andy is in the services so after a whirlwind weekend of getting married and having a "honeymoon" he goes back to his station and leaves Bella puzzled.  There's no contact between the two as often as others have with their significant others that she decides divorce is her best option.  What starts to unravel on divorce day makes for a good read.  It doesn't say this book is a part of another book but I have a feeling the Sisterhood that is spoken of in it has appeared in other books of the authors.  Thank you to Netgalley for the copy, it was a great read!

OH MY GOSH!!!! I was so happy to find this book and get back into Fern Michaels. I now have to figure out where I left off and what I had missed! Once I realized what series this book was a part of, I could not even think of putting it down before I finished it. Who are Andrew, Paul, Leonard, Bella, and Sara? Who is Mitchell and why does Bella end up going to see him? What does she do that causes her to lose her friends? After seeing Mitchell and going home, something happens. How does it change the tone of the story? Who are Captain Josell, Captain Kimball, Colonel Atkins, and Lieutenant Gibson? How and why does Bella meet these people? Where are Joseph, Alexis, and Annie? Who is meeting one another and where? I like the sound of Addie! I was shocked when I saw Lizzie's name brought up! That's when I realized what series this book was a part of. I miss reading about the Silver Fox! My mind rushed back in time to all the other books I read involving these ladies! I loved watching them in action then, and even more now! Oh boy, you really need to see what happens and how the bad guy or bad girl gets their comeuppance. Oh yeah, I have some serious back reading to do in this Sisterhood series!

Bella and Andy had a whirlwind romance -they married fast.  Then, tragically, he was killed in Afghanistan.  And it turns out, there's a con man out there who has deprived Bella of her widow's benefits and her chance to have a baby with Andy.  You can understand why she would be distraught.  She's lucky, though, to come to the attentions of the Sisterhood, a group of wealthy and connected women committed to righting wrongs where they can.  This is a long running series that's new to me  but this installment was fine as a standalone (although I'll admit I'm sure I missed nuances).  I like the idea of women standing up for other women and finding ways to fix things.  Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.  Good characters, a slightly tricky plot, and a positive tone make this a good read.

I've been following the Sisterhood series and this just wasn't what I expected. It felt like the story was dragging and then was way rushed towards the end.

Book Review: Truth and Justice by Fern Michaels
5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 
Pub Date: Aug 25th

I loved this story!!!!! This is a part of Fern Michaels "Sisterhood" series but these books can be read as a standalone. I myself have only read one other Sisterhood book before this one and Ms Michaels tells this story in a way where you don't feel lost if you read it as a standalone. This has her signature style of writing a story that is comfortable but yet captivating and has you rooting for the main character. Thank you to Netgalley and Kensington Books for my honest review.
