BOOK REVIEW- POINT BLANK #26 SISTERHOOD by Fern Michaels
The women of Fern Michaels’ New York Times bestselling Sisterhood series are beloved for bringing justice to strangers in need. And when one of their own needs help, that loyalty and commitment goes double…
Nothing compares to the bond between Sisters—except perhaps the special brotherhood between some of their menfolk. Nikki’s husband, Jack Emery, and Yoko’s partner, Harry Wong, have forged a deep friendship over the years. So when Jack awakens one night, knowing in his bones that Harry’s in trouble, he immediately rushes to Harry’s dojo.
Harry, pacing like a lion, has received a phone call from his old schoolmate Jun Yu in China. Both were educated at a Shaolin temple—the same temple where Harry’s daughter, Lily, is now a student. But Jun Yu has had to vacate the temple urgently. He’s managed to get his son out, but Lily is missing. And now Jun is trusting Harry to guard the most precious things in his life—his wife Ling and their two children, whom he has smuggled to America.
While long-time ally Pearl Barnes whisks Ling and her children to safety via her underground railroad, the Sisters and their allies head to the war room to make plans. Finding Lily is a top priority, and Kathryn’s partner, Bert Navarro, comes up with a way for the group to travel to China. They’ll go to Macau, nicknamed “the Monte Carlo of the Orient,” on the pretext of opening a casino there. But what will they find once they reach their destination? Can they hope to rescue Lily when the enemy has the home advantage…and the will to kill? The odds are stacked against them, but when the Sisterhood is involved, you can always bet on the underdog…AMAZON
A good story. Cooper the supernatural dog is going to show up in this book too. And he has a larger part to play in this one. "Follow the dog" because a oft said refrain. It has plenty of action and you know some of it isn't going to be in America. Some of the sisterhoods significant others are doing better in their personal relationships and at least one couple are in danger of losing it. In fact, it looks like Kathryn lost it again (anger) and she's feeling constrained in her relationship with Bert. Things don't look good for them. But there also is a twist concerning them, so the question is still out there.
Cooper isn't the only one in action in this book of course the ladies of the Sisterhood are in full swing and you know that means trouble for the bad guys.
