Bitter Pill - Sisterhood #32 - On Sale December 19, 2020

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…

Spirit of the Season - Reissue October 27, 2020

Hardcover, Paperback and ePub

Publisher: Kensington

A literary legend, internationally bestselling author Fern Michaels has been cherished for over forty years for her poignant tales of love, family and resilient women. Now she gifts readers with a special holiday standalone novel that encapsulates the best of the holiday season: a heartwarming homecoming, a bucolic setting, the remembrance of loved ones past and present and the discovery of a future that, like the perfect gift, is as satisfying as it is surprising…

Joy Preston misses her beloved late grandmother dearly. But when she learns the terms of Nana’s will, she’s shocked–and more than a little irked. Joy moved to Colorado years ago and is now CEO of a successful nail polish company. Her life and career are in Denver. How can Nana have expected her to give that up, even temporarily, to take over a bed and breakfast in North Carolina for six months?

Yet there’s no denying Heart and Soul’s charm, especially at holiday time. The B&B is always elaborately decorated for the season, with themed guest rooms and dazzling lawn displays created for the annual Parade of Homes competition. The entire town takes part in the festivities, and soon Joy, too, is joining in the gingerbread house contest and letting her reservations melt away.

There’s another special reason for Heart and Soul’s popularity. Rumor has it that, during holiday season, guests can be reunited with the spirit of a loved one who’s passed on. Joy’s skeptical, yet she feels her beloved Nana’s influence all around her…perhaps even indulging in a little matchmaking between Joy and handsome estate attorney Will Drake.

A special homecoming and the glow of new beginnings will combine to make the holiday magical…

A special treat to warm your heart, just in time for the holidays—a sparkling new novel from New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels. . . .

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 . . .
