    One thought on “Kentucky Rich”

    1. I did not realize that this book was the first in a triology when I started it. Now I am not sure if I will actively seek the remaining two books or just let fate take its course. If I happen upon the other two, I will read them, but if I don't come across them, it will not be a huge loss.I am not a huge Fern Michaels fan. He stories are interesting but she has a rather distracting way of changing topics in the middle of a dialog that is irritating. This book was one of her best that I have read [...]

    2. Loved the setting, the horses and most of the people. Seemed repetitive with old "myway or the highway" Nealy having fits of rage when she didn't get her way. Also a little too much hypocritcal lecturing by Nealy. Kind of reminded me of "National Velvet". If you like stories of weath, thin women with lots of clothes who are supposed to be the brains and beauty type, then this is for you

    3. Full of intrigueI was sad to finish this book. Wow it held my interest from beginning to end. Can't wait to read the next one!!!!

    4. Kentucky Rich is a wonderful story about this girl who has a two year old daughter, who loves her with all her heart. The girl is just 17 but she refuses to give up the child. When she is sick, the father says that he is going to take the baby to an orphanage. She decides that she is going to leave, her brothers help her and she drives as far as she can, then her truck dies. She gets out and walks and collapses, a nice man picks her up, takes her home and the man and his wife adopt her and her d [...]

    5. After reading book two and finding out I started out of order, I went back and read this one, it was amazing finding out how it all started, and yet there was so much tragedy. Nealy is fascinating and has endured such tragedy, it is haunting. However her endurance rings true throughout. I can't wait to see how it all turns out in book three!

    6. Fern Michaels writes books filled with characters that are well defined and made the main character, Nealy Diamond, a strong willed woman that no one can run over. The story line kept me wanting to read on to find out what happened next. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read the other two in the series.

    7. I liked about 3/4 of this book. It was never a 4- or 5-star for me because the dialogue seemed forced and very unnatural from the beginning. However, for the first 75%-ish, I really did enjoy the story and feel connected to the plot. If the book had ended after the first 300 or so pages, I would have considered it very worthwhile. At that point, a very natural end to the book seemed to take place. But then, all of a sudden, a bunch of new characters were introduced whom we never really got to kn [...]

    8. My hobby is genealogy so when I started reading that Josh Coleman was 100 years old it was a given to me that he could easily be located in the U.S. Census. Many questions about who was who and what was what with this dysfunctional family could be resolved - I had a hard time getting past all that. I can't say I enjoyed this book nor the sequel Kentucky Heat. It made me sad that people treat other people so badly and don't even try to learn from their mistakes. I can't say that I'll pick up anot [...]

    9. I enjoy most of the book I read from Fern Michaels but this seemed too predictable. Nealy is a strong woman who becomes a legend in the horse racing world. She had a lot to overcome and was also blessed with good people in her life. Since this is the only Thorton/Coleman saga I read I may be a little unfair in this review; however, with so many good books out there I do not think I will give the rest of the saga a chance.

    10. I enjoy Fern Michaels. She keeps a good pace and you find yourself taking her book everywhere with you so you can sneak a chapter in. I am really enjoying this branch of the Coleman family. I don't know how I missed this trilogy but glad I found it.

    11. I listened to this book and was surprised how much I enjoyed it. Plot moved well and the characters were interesting.

    12. I thoroughly enjoyed this book as well as the next two. Nealy is such a strong character and I simply loved her story.

    13. This book is Awesome! Basically it is the story of Nealy Coleman-abused as a child by her "father", flees home one night with her 2 year old illegimate daughter, and winds up at Maude and Jess' Blue Diamond horse ranch. Nealy is a natural with horses and has a special gift in dealing with them. Nealy's only love, besides her daughter, IS horses.Maude and Jess love them like they were their own, and Nealy becomes heir to the ranch when Maude and Jess die.Not only does Nealy become the richest wom [...]

    14. Denise, Central patron, June 2016, 5 stars:A 17-year-old has a child and her father cannot accept it. He has already worked her and her brothers into the ground around the farm and no one stands up to him. Everyone is afraid of him. He plans to take the baby away from her and as soon as she finds out about this she heads out to parts unknown with a few clothes and less than $1,000. She takes a rusted out truck and leaves. She doesn't even have a driver's license and had never driven on a highway [...]

    15. Living so close to Kentucky horse country during early spring (Derby time) this was a perfect book to read. It made the attempt to be a grand family saga story, but it seems that too much history was trying to be stuffed into too short of a novel. I also thought that parts such as the penny from heaven was just a little too unbelievable. I can understand keeping the memory of dead characters alive in a book like this, but it would have been better if Maud and Jess were simply remembered not ghos [...]

    16. I seriously tried to really love this book because I love the setting and theme. I even went so far as purchasing the next two books in the series. NOW I regret those purchases! This book was boring, inaccurate and a strain to read. I love the horse, show and racing, world and I frequently read horse themed books and love them. However, this book was just plain old boring. the inaccuracies I know can come with books but the character building was either too much or not enough. I could go on now [...]

    17. Nealy and her daughter, Emmie, left her father's horse farm with help from Nealy's brother, after her father called his granddaughter names and whatever else to be found out later. They were found by Maud and Jess only to be loved and adopted by them. Upon their death Nealy and Emmie inherited everything and then she went to her father's deathbed to watch him die! Thie book was a very good read. There was much determination and hard work along the way.

    18. An incredible book, I thought it would be more of a "gold digger" style and resisted to read for a while, however it turned out to be completely different. It dealt with different issues of loss, rejection, trust, and later love. Absolutely amazing book, I love the style of Fern Michaels wrinting. Would strongly recommend this book!

    19. There was too much in this book and not well put together. Skipped around, left too many gaps and then added minute details that just didn't do it for me. I will not be reading the other 2 in this trilogy unless there's nothing else in the book bin. Fortunately there are a lot piled in the bin so no worries for awhile.

    20. This book was hard to follow at times - particularly halfway through when a bunch of other family characters were introduced. The main characters weren't very believable, and changed their minds a lot in ways that didn't make sense to me (i.e. Neely's feelings about Hunt at the beginning and the end).

    21. This is a look inside the history of the Kentucky Derby - but is told through a story of a young girl who gets pregnant at 15 and is kicked out of the house by her father. She never knew her mother. A great book and just when you think the story is getting predictable, something totally changes the direction of the story.

    22. The last saga of the Coleman family.t was Vegas, then Texas and this is the Kentucky series. It is different than the others as it deals primarily with one main character, but does add in the family from both of the other series at different times.

    23. I had read her Vegas trilogy and quite enjoyed it, so I was looking forward to all three of the Kentucky books. Unfortunately, I was so disappointed in the first one, I'm not even going to read the other three. I just found it all too simplistic and and the events unbelievable.

    24. This book was really good and I was hooked. I kept wanting to read more and was disappointed when it ended, but I already have the next one ready to go. The only thing I didn't really like about the book was all of the talking to the dead and them responding.

    25. Loved this series of three books. It was based in Kentucky and I lived there for 7 years so this made me want to read it. Very well written and I loved the characters. You loved some of the people and didn't like some of themis was one of my favorite series.
