Romance Book Review: Under the Radar

Author: Fern Michaels
Series Connection: The Sisterhood
ISBN: 978-1420106831
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense


This is the 13th in Sisterhood series by Fern Michaels. I'm really go back and forth about what I think of Fern. I like some of her books, other just don't do it for me. This one wasn't bad, but it did seem to have some of the reoccurring issues that I have with Fern's work. It starts a little on the slow side, but picks up toward the middle. I liked the change in the series where the "Sisters'" fearless leader doesn't make all the decisions for the ladies and they get to show themselves a little more in this book.

When the sisters receive a call from their friend Pearl Barnes, Annie takes the command. The ladies don't really have a plan as to what they are going to do, but they follow their instincts and hope for the best.

This is a really a fast read with some cute dialog, which is something I really do like about Fern Michaels' writing style.

In the middle of the night, the sisterhood is your only hope. A sister's work is never done - not when there are wrongs to right and underdogs to defend. Just returned to their mountaintop hideaway after their latest successful mission, the seven fearless friends enjoy a celebratory dinner and retire to bed. But within an hour, an alarm sounds, and the ladies rush into the compound in time to see Myra and their mentor, Charles, climbing aboard a helicopter. All that's left is a mysterious note, signed by Charles. Still reeling, the Sisters receive an urgent call from retired justice Pearl Barnes. Pearl runs an underground railroad to help abused and displaced women, and she's just rescued fourteen pregnant teenagers who belong to a highly secretive and controversial polygamy sect. But keeping the girls safe will require the kind of help only the Sisterhood can provide - if they can band together and go it alone...
