Payback by Fern Michaels

Book Description:
Meet the Sisterhood--seven very different women who found one another in their darkest days and formed an indelible friendship, strong enough to heal their pasts and bring laughter and joy back into their lives. In Myra Rutledge's beautiful VA home, amid hugs and fresh iced tea, shrimp fritters, and shell-pink tulips, the friends have gathered to embark on their second mission of sweet revenge for one of their own. Julia Webster's husband, a US senator, has used his wife's graciousness and elegance to advance his career even as he's abused her trust at every turn and left her dreams for the future in tatters. Now, on the eve of his greatest political victory, he's about to learn a serious lesson in payback. Because the senator crossed the wrong woman...and there are six more where she came from...

My Thoughts:
I am loving this series! Definately targeted toward an adult audience with the language and content, but such a fun read. Maybe its just that I love the bad guys getting what they deserve, even if it is by vigilante justice. In this story, Julia gets to exact her revenge on her cheating husband. He is a senator whom she has helped for years to gain and keep his position, but he has cheated on her MANY times and now has given her a deadly disease. I like that her revenge isn't limited to him but they tack on some other justice that is definitely well-deserved.
Overall, I give this book a 4/5. It is a great read, but you could definitely buy it at a used bookstore or maybe borrow it. There are still several more in the series and I intend to read them!
