I was able to keep interest in this book, the 2nd of 3, much easier than I could in book 1 (Kentucky Rich). I like the characters in the book, but occassionaly get lost when distant relatives are discussed because there are so many family members in the book. I find the character's one tracked devotion to horses difficult to believe at time. Nealy is a little too cold to really enjoy reading about her at times.

Had a good flow to the story line. A bit unbelievable, but what is fiction without a bit embellishment. :)

From back of book:

Josh Coleman left unfinished family business when he took to his deathbed at SunStar, the thoroughbread horse farm he'd built from nothing. But now that unfinished business cannot be ignored -- because his long-lost daughter has come back to settle an old score.

Nealy Coleman Diamond no longer resembles the teenaged waif who slipped away in the middle of the night with her illegitimate child, Emmie, thirty years ago. This Nealy is rich, sophisticated, and renowned in the racing world--a woman to be reckoned with.

When the truth about her father and a family's troubled past is revealed, Nealy will find herslef faced with the greatest challenges of her life--ones that will test her courage in unexpected ways and reveal what is truly important.

Huge fan of Fern Michaels. This is the best book that I have read of hers. You get so caught up in the characters, you can't believe it when the book is done. Thank goodness there is two more to go!!

With Nealy, horses come first. So when her two grown children's irresponsible acts nearly cost her Shufly, the foal that carries all her hopes for the Triple Crown, she throws them both off Blue Diamond Farm, a decision that changes their future-and her own.

To the world, Nealy looks unbreakable. Inside, her heart has shattered. Estranged from her daughter Emmie and son Nick, she struggles alone to build her racing stables into the best in Kentucky-and Shufly into the horse of the century.

When Hatch Litttetree, her ex-husband's law partner, pays an unexpected visit, he brings Nealy much-needed comfort. But he also brings turmoil. A tough Native American and a brilliant attorney, Hatch is determined to see Nealy heal the painful rift with her children. He's also a man Nealy cannot resist.

I really loved this book and author...
The Coleman's of Texas and the Thortons of Vegas just would not stay out of my head.. They seemed to be saying, there's more to our story,and it has to be told, so, what can I do but, tell it..
fascinating book and Author

This is book #1 in a trilogy. It's about horses and relationships. I enjoyed it enough to purchase #2 and #3 sequels.

Continuing the saga of the Colemans and the Thorntons as recounted in Texas and Vegas, this latest novel puts the next generation center stage and is the first in a projected new trilogy. Thirty years after escaping her father's repressive Virginia home with her illegitimate daughter, Nealy Coleman Diamond returns to his deathbed, scrabbling to find answers to why Josh Coleman was so hateful and abusive. In the intervening period, she's become a woman of means, succeeding in the man's world of thoroughbred racing in Kentucky. Once all the secrets have been revealed and she's taken revenge on the scoundrel who impregnated her, will Nealy be free to find true love at last? As usual with Michaels's sagas, the characters range from the kindhearted to the blackhearted, with scarcely any halftones between. The plot verges on the melodramatic, but it moves too quickly to pall. It helps for readers to be interested in racing, since Michaels knows her Secretariat from her Man O'War. The audience for her previous works is probably waiting at the starting gate for this one.

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY REVIEW

I was so thrilled to discover that the Colemans' and Thornton's from the Texas and Vegas Series had been continued in Kentucky Rich. I was hooked from the first page. It's a great way to escape everyday life and fantasize a little. When the book ended, I felt like I'd lost a friend. However, I look forward to renewing old friendships in the next book.

Lovely book about a family living in the Country and a young girl who has always wanted to own a horse and be involved in the Kentucky Derby one day. Lovely book that is one of those books to read in a hammack on a sunny day sipping Ice Tea!
