BOOK REVIEW- HOKUS POKUS BY Fern Michaels 9th Book Sisterhood
Not Even An Ocean Can Keep The Sisterhood
From Helping A Friend In Need. . .
There is no match for the Sisterhood--the seven friends who have taken vigilante justice to a new level--not even the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Although the women foiled former FBI director Mitch Riley's plot to frame their friends Judge Nellie Easter and lawyer Lizzie Fox, now they must remain in exile or risk capture. They can't complain about their opulent digs on a remote, luxurious mountaintop, but the ladies desperately miss home.
Their wish to return might come true sooner than they expect when they receive a panicked call from Supreme Court Chief Justice Pearl Barnes, who faces blackmail for her own illegal brand of justice. Now the women must not only sneak back into the United States, but also remain undetected as they investigate. But how do you make seven women disappear? With a nosy reporter on the brink of exposing them, the clock is ticking as the Sisterhood tries to create a little magic--and save the day. AMAZON 3.5 STARS
Although, I liked the book, it wasn't one of my favorites in the series. At times, I thought it was kind of slow moving, which is a strange thing to say about any book in this series. It just seemed to slow and bog down a bit every so often. There were certainly several different missions going on at a time. I generally get a kick out of their "camouflage" get ups but I have to admit that one of them in this book, was just a bit too hard to swallow. Even for a work of fiction, I thought it was a bit silly and hard to believe. The twists and turns were there, the clever plots and near misses, the danger and just a little bit of romance too. Just a little bit of romance because there was just so much danger that they had little time to be together. The reporter Ted, is as annoying as ever. Smart but annoying.
Just because I was a little bit disappointed in this book, will I stop reading this series? No, I've already got Book 9, Fast Track in my reader, ready to go.
