Life isn't fair. Most women know it. But what can you do about it? Plenty...if you're part of the Sisterhood. On the surface, these seven women are as different as can bebut each has had her share of bad luck, from cheating husbands to sexist colleagues to a legal system that often doesn't do its job. Now, drawn together by tragedy, they're forging a bond that will help them right the wrongs committed against them and discover inner strength they didn't know they had. Growing bolder with each act of justice, the Sisterhood is learning that when bad things happen, you can roll over and play dead...or you can get up fighting...

In the tradition of The First Wives' Club, Weekend Warriors is a slam-bang, take-no-prisoners tale of survival, sweet revenge, and the healing power of friendship.

I wanted something light and easy to read and this was perfect. It's a revenge story, or rather, the start of what will be a revenge series. Myra's daughter was killed in a hit-and-run but the driver was never even charged because he is a diplomat: diplomatic immunity. After many months of depression over the loss of her daughter without any justice, Myra learns of a local woman that kills the man that murdered her child after his trial was dropped because of a technicality. That's when Myra decides she'll pursue justice for her daughter's death herself, since government and the law won't do it.

In all, there are seven women in the Sisterhood. They will take turns helping one another get their own forms of justice for the wrongs that have been committed against them. They've all had such awful things done to them, so I'm looking forward to seeing what the Sisterhood does in each instance. In this first story, Kathryn gets revenge on the three men that raped her seven years ago while her disabled husband helplessly watched.

YES, you have to suspend your disbelief. YES, the Sisterhood is operating entirely outside of the law. But that's what makes this series so fun!! These characters are quirky and relatable, and there is a whole lot of friendship and the building-up of other women. There is no romance in this first story.

Easy, breezy and a little bit funny. I immediately bought the next four books in the series so I can keep going.

Audiobook Notes: I added the audio to my read and enjoyed listening, although I did stop it eventually and read the last third or so on my Kindle. The narrator does a fine job, although I imagine a few of the characters as younger than the narrator portrays them.

Myra’s daughter is killed in a hit and run by someone with diplomatic immunity. She sinks into a deep depression and only comes out when she sees, on the news, a woman – whose daughter was killed, but the killer gets off on a technicality – shoot the killer. Myra’s rich, so she pays the woman’s bail and helps her disappear. Myra wishes she would have done something like that to her daughter’s killer. She then recruits her adopted daughter’s help – Nikki is a lawyer – to organize a vigilante group of women who never got justice through proper legal channels. As a group, they’ll plan and hand out that justice, instead.

I’m a bit mixed on this one. The story was entertaining, but I sure didn’t like the women, nor did I agree with what they were doing. I also found it difficult to believe that Nikki would put her career on the line like that. I also found that it was too quick and easy that they were able to find the people they wanted revenge on. I also feel like the cover is quite misleading – it’s a pretty white cover with flowers… hmmmmm. This is the first in a series, so they primarily focused on one of the women and her revenge, though they all have different stories. I’m not sure if I’ll continue or not. ( )

Nikki and her best friend Barbara are meeting Barbara's mother, Myra Rutledge, for lunch when Barbara is killed in a hit and run accident. The driver of the car has diplomatic immunity and is protected from prosecution. Myra descends into a period of deep mourning bordering on severe depression. Sixteen months later Myra is watching a news broadcast about a woman who lost her child and took matters into her own hands. Feeling inspired Myra gathers together a group of women who have all suffered and the legal system did not bring any of them justice. They form the Sisterhood and vow to right all the wrongs done against them. Drawing a name from a hat the Sisterhood begins to work on Kathryn Lucas's case first.

This book is not about romance. These women are out for revenge and nothing is going to stand in their way. There are seven ladies in total: Myra Rutledge (billionaire), Nikki French (lawyer), Kathryn Lucas (long-haul truck driver), Alexis Thorne (securities broker), Julia Webster (plastic surgeon), Isabelle Flanders (architect) and Yoko Akia (florist). They are assisted by Charles Martin, an ex-MI6 agent and Myra's current head of security. It is the combination of their backgrounds and skills that turns them into a successful team. Unlimited funding doesn't hurt either.

This was an entertaining, light and engaging read. The story is very fast paced. Main characters are given just enough background to understand their basic persona but no real depth. The revenge they enact is something I think many women in Kathryn's position wish they could do. It is a bit of a fantasy in that money is no object, they have access to any resource they could need and obstacles are relatively easy to over come. I read this on my mom's recommendation and can see why she liked it. ( )

I recommend that you read books 1-7, but I wouldn't read beyond that. ( )

Interesting. Nice to get even for a wrong committed; however, a little bit far-fetched. ( )
