Best-selling author Michaels returns to the sweeping family saga reminiscent of her Texas series with the start of a new trilogy set in Las Vegas. The first book is solidly launched and will be eagerly snapped up by Michaels' fans. When Sallie Coleman first came to Las Vegas in 1923, she worked in a bingo parlor and occasionally picked up money on the side by doing things that her mama wouldn't approve of. One of her admirers leaves his vast fortune to the illiterate Sallie, and she uses it to improve herself, her friends, and the growing little town of Las Vegas. As her power and influence grow, Sallie marries a Thornton and they have two sons. When the marriage becomes increasingly bitter and the two sons are divided between parents, Sallie meets the love of her life and begins an affair that will span decades. But she never forgets that her older brother, Seth Coleman (of the Texas series), abandoned their family, and she relentlessly searches for him through all the years of her own family's triumphs and tragedies. Covering the Thornton family through each generation until 1979, Vegas Rich captures the founding of a dynasty. Fans will catch up on characters familiar from the Texas books and meet new ones who will have them anxiously awaiting the second volume, Vegas Heat.

I have already read the Kentucky & Texas series that follows the Coleman family. This one was really good, too. Shows some interaction between the families from the other ones that gives some more insight to their relationships.

I haven't read Fern Michaels since I was a teenager in the 80's. I loved the Texas series and thought I'd go back to my roots. I'm so glad I did. I enjoyed the story of the Thorntons as much as I remember loving the series about the Colemans. Now I'm waiting for the other two books in this series.

This is the first in s series. I read the second one before I realized there was a series. This book is very well written and give history along with the novel. IT is the beginning of the making of a family that gets followed through three generations. It is not a romance novel, so if you are looking for smut, this does not have it. It does follow several women and lessons from each era are still relevant to ours.
