After years of trying to become pregnant without success, Rachel Dawson and her husband Thomas felt their dreams had finally come true the day they brought home their newly adopted twin babies. Though the lawyer Baron Bell who arranged for the surrogate mother charged a hefty six-figure fee, one glance into the eyes of their precious children told them it was all worth it. Until the birth mother reappeared, first demanding more money, then the twins themselves. Suddenly Baron Bell was nowhere to be found, and the Dawsons were once again childless, heartbroken and nearly destitute. When the case finds its way to the offices of high-profile attorney Lizzie Fox, she can’t wait to take down the so-called ‘Mr. Wonderful’. And she knows she’ll have all the help she needs as it’s just the kind of crime that really gets the Sisterhood’s adrenalin flowing. Once they get their hands on the perpetrators there will be hell to pay, and it will cost a lot more than cold, hard cash…
I didn’t like this installment of the Sisterhood series as much as I have most of the others and I can’t really tell you why. The story just failed to hold my interest and I found it very easy to put down and do other things instead. I’d much rather have a book that holds me hostage from beginning to end and those are really rare. Most books I read are real page turners but a “hostage taking” book is one that you just have to finish in one or two days at most. Deadly Deals was not was not even a close contender. Will I read the next in the series-of course, I love series.
