Mass Market Paperback and ePub

Publisher: Kensington

No one weaves a story as well as beloved New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels. In the Sisterhood’s 32nd adventure together, a team of unscrupulous doctors pushing destructive natural remedies is profiting from others’ distress–but these loyal friends know just the cure…

The Sisterhood: a group of women from all walks of life bound by friendship and a quest for justice. Armed with vast resources, top-notch expertise, and a loyal network of allies around the globe, the Sisterhood will not rest until every wrong is made right.

For the Sisterhood, every mission matters. But there’s a special satisfaction that comes with helping a friend in need, especially when it’s someone as dear as Myra Rutledge’s childhood friend Charlotte. After she receives a worrying letter, Myra quickly arranges for Charlotte to visit, hoping to restore her peace of mind. She learns that Charlotte has spent tens of thousands of dollars on “natural herbal remedies” as part of an innovative program to boost longevity. But far from improving her health, the medications seem to be destroying it.

Myra becomes suspicious of the trio of doctors in charge of the program, especially once the Sisterhood’s investigations reveal that one patient has died, and another lapsed into a coma. While those in their care suffer, the three doctors–located in London, Aspen, and New York–all enjoy indulgent lifestyles and extravagant toys. But the passions and obsessions paid for by their selfish scheme may be the very means to get revenge. Justice, after all, is always the best medicine–and no one dispenses it better than the Sisterhood…

A fan-favorite classic Fern Michaels novel, beautifully repackaged for fans old and new.

Back in college, Jane Lewis would have given anything to be like homecoming queen Connie Bryan. Instead, she was just Plain Jane–a painfully shy wallflower no one would remember. That was then. Today, a lovely and confident Dr. Jane Lewis has a thriving psychotherapy practice, her own radio talk show, a beautiful old Louisiana mansion, and her affectionate, nutty dog, Olive, to keep her company. The only thing missing is someone to share her life.

Jane has never forgotten Michael Sorenson, the boy she’d admired from afar in college. Now, he’s inspiring her to hope for a future together. She’s also never forgotten the brutal, unsolved attack that ended Connie Bryan’s life–and haunts Jane still. Suddenly, the present collides with the past, as she finds clues into the identities of Connie’s attackers–clues that send her into a world of risk and excitement, challenging her to become a truly extraordinary woman…if she dares.

Ellie Bowman barely remembers the incident that put her into a coma. When she awoke, filled with unease, all she knew for certain was that her boyfriend, Rick, was missing. She knew she needed to get away from her old life and recover in safety. With the proceeds of a video game she helped develop, Ellie starts over in rural Missouri, working from her cottage and trusting no one except her friend and business partner.

Yet even in this quiet small town, it’s impossible to completely isolate herself. Especially when a curious eight-year-old boy, smitten with Ellie’s pup, stops by every day to talk to him over the fence. Little by little, Ellie is being drawn back into the world through the neighbors and community around her, realizing that everyone has their own fears and obstacles to contend with.

But when Ellie hears that Rick has resurfaced, her nightmares return, and with them, small snippets of memory. No one has heard from Rick since before the incident, so why is he back now? Ellie wants to move forward with her life, but first she must find the courage to look into her past, no matter what she finds there.

There, they learned about love, loyalty, and forgiveness, never realizing how little they really knew about each other or about Pearl, the woman who was a mother figure to them all.

For Sela, returning to Parker Manor provides a brief escape from her unhappy marriage. Brie is now an ambitious FBI agent, and no longer willing to be Callie’s freckle-faced shadow. Bode, an orphan who had been taken in by Callie’s father, has reasons for wanting to avoid the event entirely.

Perfect for fans of Debbie Macomber and readers who can’t get enough Hallmark movies, this special Christmas treat will warm your heart just in time for the cozy holiday season. A sparkling new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels is exactly what you need to get in the spirit of the season.

Christmas is more than just a celebration for Lauren Montgomery. For generations, it’s been her family’s livelihood. Their Christmas shop, Razzle Dazzle Décor, has seen seasonal fads come and go, but there’s one trend they can’t escape. Online superstores are swallowing their sales, and this Christmas season will need to be their best ever if the store is to stay in business.

To help keep the shop afloat, Lauren also has a sideline, writing biographies for business figures. She’s thrilled when her literary agent contacts her with a new proposal—before learning that the subject will be none other than John Gerald Giompalo. He’s the titan behind Globalgoods.com, the online retailer that has spelled doom for hundreds of small businesses just like Razzle Dazzle Décor. Despite her misgivings, Lauren travels to Seattle to confer with the mogul, and is caught off guard when his son, John Jr., attends the meeting too. Handsome, intelligent, and deeply kind, he’s perfect—apart from the fact that he’s part of the company threatening everything Lauren loves.

As her deadline, and Christmas, draw closer, Lauren knows that there’s more than her family’s shop at stake. Her heart is, too. But there’s no better time than the holidays to make a secret wish on the brightest star you see—and let the season’s magic take hold . . .
