Review: Weekend Warriors



Weekend Warriors by Fern Michaels

This incredibly quick book (only about 200 pages in big type) was recommended to me by our Bookmobile Lady as a good "woman scorned" read.

A group of wronged women band together to pay back the men who wronged them. One was gang raped, another was set up to take a fall for a brokerage firm, another shot her daughter's killer, and so forth. The plot has potential and the revenge certainly is sweet, but the writing was so atrocious I could barely stand it! Stilted language, tacky conversations, no sense of continuity and a sense that everything fell into place waaaaay too easily.

An interesting plot marred by a less-than-stellar writing job. Eh.
