BOOK REVIEW- CRASH AND BURN by Fern Michaels Book 27 Sisterhood
The women of the Sisterhood are united by their mission to help those unable to help themselves. But now they’ve encountered opponents who share a unique bond of their own. The law firm of Queen, King, Bishop & Rook—the Chessmen—has been a formidable force in Washington, D.C., for decades. And Sisterhood member Nikki Quinn’s new case has made her their prime target.
Nikki has agreed to represent Livinia Lambert as she files for divorce from her domineering, greedy husband, Wilson “Buzz” Lambert. Buzz, currently Speaker of the House, fears the scandal will scupper his presidential plans, and intends to make life extremely difficult for Livinia—with the Chessmen’s help. The Chessmen may play dirty, but the Sisterhood play smart. For too long, the Chessmen have believed themselves above the law they pretend to serve, but there’s no statute of limitations on the Sisterhood’s particular brand of justice—or their loyalty . . .AMAZON 4 STARS
I liked it. It was also a bit different because Nikki Quinn and her law firm get played a bit. No one saw it coming, myself included. There are some background stories that played out before the "girls" go into action. Buzz Lambert was a loudmouth bully who always had The Chessmen backing him. They were all bullies except for one partner, who has been keeping his own counsel and his own nose as clean as he could. Lizzie Fox shows up for a bit in this one. Yes, I know she has a married name but she is the "Silver Fox" now and always too. The Sisterhood's secret weapons, Abner and Avery show up in this book as well. Everything finally comes together at the end and Justice wins again. Somethings that I had suspected about Amy and Starry Knight proved to be true. But I enjoyed the ride.
