Phenomenally prolific and inventive, Michaels writes traditional romances and romantic suspense, and hit it big with her Revenge of the Sisterhood series about a secret group of women vigilantes. Led by Myra Rutledge, who founded the group after her daughter was murdered and justice was not served, the sisterhood seeks payback for women whose lives have been violently derailed. In the fifth title, following The Jury (2005) and Vendetta (2005), it's Isabelle's turn for revenge by any means necessary. Several years ago, she was an architect on the fast track and hired Rosemary to help her firm meet demand, having no clue that Rosemary was so self-centered and driven she would let nothing and no one stand in the way of what she wanted and felt she deserved. This cold-blooded schemer managed to get into an...

From Publishers Weekly
Readers beware: this book is not for the faint of heart or for fans of Michaels's more traditional romances (Kentucky Rich, etc.). There is no happily ever after here; indeed, the primary emotion fueling this story is not love, but anger. Anger leads wealthy Myra Rutledge, who lost her daughter to a hit-and-run driver with diplomatic immunity, to found the Sisterhood, a secret vigilante group of women who have been unable to seek justice through lawful means. Assisting Myra in this effort are former MI6 agent Charles Martin and defense attorney Nikki Quinn, who was Myra's daughter's best friend. High on estrogen and hate, the women pinpoint their first target—the Weekend Warriors, a group of motorcycle enthusiasts who brutally raped Kathryn Lucas, one of Nikki's former clients. The women decide on a Lorena...

It's Nikki's turn for payback in the latest installment in Michaels' Revenge of the Sisterhood series. Everyone believes she'll go after her former fiance, Jack, who has sworn to bring the ladies down for stepping outside the law to bring restitution to those denied justice by legal means. But Nikki has no intention of doing so. In fact, she gets back together with him after they agree that Jack will not actively pursue the Sisterhood in his new job as the Washington, D.C., district attorney, and Nikki agrees that she no longer feels entirely comfortable with their operation. None of the other sisters has any idea that they have reached this understanding. Then the wife of the National Security Advisor, who regularly beats her, has finally had enough. While she recuperates, the Sisterhood enacts revenge on her behalf....

Once the hallmark of macho fantasy, payback moves to the heart of modern romance in the spotty second installment of Michaels's Revenge of the Sisterhood series, as the heroines of Weekend Warriors regroup for mission number 2. Revenge is a dish best served with cloth napkins and floral centerpiece, according to the Sisterhood members: heiress Myra Rutledge; her adopted daughter, Nikki; Kathryn, the truck driver; Alexis, the African-American broker turned personal shopper; Julia, the plastic surgeon; Isabelle, the psychic; and Yoko, the nursery owner. It's vigilante justice for Julia this time: she's "contracted AIDS from her philandering senator husband." Frail Julia gets strength from her friends and guidance from Myra's lover, Charles, an ex-MI6 British operative and gourmet cook who plays a different kind of...

Book Review
Author Wilson Rawls spent his boyhood much like the character of this book, Billy Colman, roaming the Ozarks of northeastern Oklahoma with his bluetick hound. A straightforward, shoot-from-the-hip storyteller with a searingly honest voice, Rawls is well-loved for this powerful 1961 classic and the award-winning novel Summer of the Monkeys. In Where the Red Fern Grows, Billy and his precious coonhound pups romp relentlessly through the Ozarks, trying to "tree" the elusive raccoon. In time, the inseparable trio wins the coveted gold cup in the annual coon-hunt contest, captures the wily ghost coon, and bravely fights with a mountain lion. When the victory over the mountain lion turns to tragedy, Billy grieves, but learns the beautiful old Native American legend of the sacred red fern that grows over the graves of...

It isn't easy to root for the vindictive women in Michaels's Revenge of the Sisterhood series. Sure, they're loyal and fearless, and they look good in eveningwear ("We're stunning," lawyer Nikki says. "We sizzle and we look sensual"). But in this third installment of the payback saga, the six women commit a morally repugnant act likely to leave readers cold. Myra and her longtime lover, retired MI6 agent Charles, finally discover the whereabouts of John Chai, the man who killed their daughter in a hit-and-run accident five years earlier and fled to China. So Charles and three of the "girls" fly Myra's Gulfstream to Hong Kong, where they drug "greasy, oily, unctuous" Chai, disguise him as a sick old man and sneak him back to Myra's Virginia estate. Back home, Charles makes the women banana-and-macadamia-nut...

Fanciful premises and implausible turns of events are the stuff Christmas fiction is made of, but Michaels takes matters too far in this contrived sequel to her 2002 Christmas novella, No Place Like Home, basing her story on a misunderstanding that could be cleared up in a 10-second conversation. Sara and Hannah, two of the three Cisco triplets, are perturbed that their hubbies are coming home later and later, and immediately become convinced that they're having affairs. The truth? Hapless Zack and Joel have bought an expensive boat to sail around the world and are afraid to tell their wives. Sonia, wife of third triplet Sam, has just left her husband—why? He's not ready to start a family, and she's accidentally pregnant. Does she simply tell him? Of course not. The six lovebirds bumble around...

The Infertility Diet: Get Pregnant and Prevent Miscarriage

Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
This unique natural healing "recipe" book describes the way food affects a couple's ability to get pregnant and stay pregnant. Reiss, who studied cooking and nutrition at the Culinary Institute of America and the Kushi Institute for Macrobiotic Studies, combines her educational background with medical research to conclude that a balanced diet of whole foods rich in vegetables, fruits, and grains may improve one's fertility. Claiming personal success, she discusses general good eating habits and the physiological basics of timing. Reiss has organized her book by fertility problem and its nutritional remedy (for example, eating yams may correct a short luteal phase defect). Food groups rather than vitamin dosages are emphasized (and vitamin pill supplements discouraged), which leads to vague recommendations of the...

Building on the success of her Vegas and Texas series, Michaels (Kentucky Rich) enlarges the Coleman and Thornton family legacies in her second novel set in bluegrass country. The indomitable Nealy Coleman Diamond Clay has her hands full: the foal that carries her hopes for the Triple Crown is born early while her grown children and helpmeets are away. When they return with news (her son has eloped with the family's cook and her daughter's husband abandoned her on a cruise) Nealy is furious as far as she's concerned, they were due home a week ago. "The horses always [come] first," sighs daughter Emmie. The multiple catastrophes strain plausibility, but the stalwart Michaels, whose plots are chock-full of dramatic tension, knows how to pull off the impossible.

Rotund Rosie Bliss, née Gardener, is miserable. She has known all along that her husband married her for her money—she runs a successful mail-order business, Nature's Decorations—but she has always lacked the courage to do anything about it.
