Weekend Warriors by Fern Michaels

Book Description:
Nikki Quinn is devastated when her best friend Barbara is knocked down and killed by a hit-and-run driver who claims diplomatic immunity. But Nikki has her work and her lover, fellow lawyer Jack Nolan, to keep her going, whereas Barbara's mother, Myra, has nothing. Festering in a sea of recriminations and hatred, unable to gain a sense of perspective, Myra is lost...until one day she switches on the evening news and sees Marie Lewellen, mother of a murder victim, take matters into her own hands and stab her daughter's killer. An idea is born, and within months Myra and Nikki have drawn together a group of women who have one thing in common: they have been failed by the American justice system, they're down but they're not out, and they're ready to find their nemeses and make them pay. First up is Kathryn, a long-distance truck driver who was raped at a road stop by three motorcyclists as her paralysed husband watched, helpless. Banding together, the Sisterhood plot the ultimate revenge - but with dissension from inside the group and out, there's no saying if the plan will work until the moment of truth arrives.

My thoughts:
I loved this book! It wasn't a 'clean' read because of the language and some adult content, but it was definitely a FUN read. I greatly enjoyed the camaraderie between the women and the vigilante justice. Each woman has her own issues to deal with but revenge is the main thought behind all of it. Kathryn's story was so funny, inventive and memorable. I loved the way they came up with the 'justice' they dealt out, it was very fitting!
Overall I give this book a 4/5. It is a wonderful read, but there are already several more out in the series and it shouldn't be a problem to find used! I'm definately going to get the next in the series soon!
