I read The Shoemakers Wife and wanted to try another of her books. This is the first in a series.

Wow, every single character in this series was a coffee addict! Nah, scratch that, every single character in this series was the same character! They all had the same likes and dislikes, they all spoke the same, all were topic jumpers. Conversations did not flow, everyone spoke in the same 'tone'. How do you like a series of books where you don't like any of the main characters.

The racing scenes improved with the second and third books, she must have read the reviews for the first, but still weren't great. I've never heard of a racehorse owner who races a horse in only three races then retires them to stud and expects to get top notch stud fees when her horse only ran in and won three races! Yeah, they said that there was a loophole to get around running preliminaries and just going straight to Derby, but you have to get your horse ready for the track it's racing on, ready to run against 18 other horses, ready for the crowds, etc.

I didn't feel sorry for any of the characters with any of their dilemas, I felt more like they deserved what they got. Nealy, the main character, was immature and nasty to everyone around her. Emmie, her daughter, was like a seven year old child throughout the entire series, a major screw up and a major disappointment. All the characters just seemed really two dimensional, immature, and snobby rich people.

Let's not forget the paragraphs I skipped due to the explaination of every detail of every food that was served for dinner, how it was made, how good it was, etc. If I want that, I'll read a cookbook!

I doubt I'll ever pick up another Fern Michaels book seeing that these three, while a quick read, bored me to death and had me guffawing and rolling my eyes constantly.

I LOVE this series!! If you started with the Texas series, instead of this book, which is the last book in the series, I think you will find that these characters have a lot of depth and you become very involved with their lives. Once I started, I could not put these books down!!

I never thought about it but after I read the reviews, I guess someone who hadn't read the entire series might be lost but this is one of the best series of book I have ever read. If you start at the beginning with the Texas series the books are fantastic.

This book is terrible. The characters are scattered and impossible to follow, the plot (what plot?) is horribly scripted, and it's a complete waste of money and time. I'd been considering reading it for some time, and now I'm sorry I spent money on it.
If you're looking for a good horse story/mystery read Tami Hoag's DARK HORSE. Tami Hoag KNOWS horses ... she's an avid competitor herself. Fern Michaels obviously knows nothing about horses or horse racing. She'd be better off writing Harlequin Romance novels ... they are short and it would be much less painful.

I picked this book up to read while i stayed at the beach. It was very hard to follow, as i havent read the others, and rather well i dunno kinda boring. i love horses and racing more than anything in the world and it is rather obvious that the author doesnt know much about either subject. It seemed kinda repetitive and something about the story bothered me deeply...but im not sure what. if you want great horse reading buy Seabiscuit by laura H. it is a beatufully written story and interesting to follow!

I only bought this book because of the horse racing connection. My guess is that the author has never been to a horse race in her life, much less done any adequate research on training and what it takes to become a jockey. Even for the reader without any knowledge of the horse racing industry, this is a very poorly written book, the ending is something a child would come up with, the characters evoke no emotion whatsoever from the reader, and their development is non-existent.

No empathy for the characters, no knowledge of horses or horse racing and the book was difficult to follow.
Do not read this book if you love horses or horse racing. It has little to do with any of it and it is very obvious that Fern did not do much research into either.
