From Publishers Weekly
Dallas Lord, a 38-year-old rock star asks Sara Killian, M.D., 39, to marry him (perhaps for the wrong reasons), and as a gift, he writes her a song. Then, having supposedly died in a plane crash, Dallas chooses to drop out of sight in order to gain new perspective on his sense of his life and himself (he's tortured by undiagnosed dyslexia). In his absence, a bad-girl backup singer claims rights to the song and attempts to murder Sara. After a brief attraction to Adam Lord, Dallas's older brother/manager, Sara is left to flounder in a midlife crisis as the brothers reunite, neither willing to admit their feelings for her. There's plenty of potential here?romantic story line, dynamic conflict?but Michaels's (Vegas Heat) latest is weakened by a poorly represented locale, abrupt transitions and the hero's maudlin motivations. Michaels is aiming for the heartstrings here, but she manages to hit only a few chords.

At the beginning of SARA'S SONG, Dallas still has a lot of growing up to do. It is only when he is faced with death, and discovers himself and strengths he didn't know he possessed that he is able to mature.
The Dallas who returns is a new man. More mature, wiser, and a man the reader can truly fall in love with. By the end of the book the reader is rooting for these too and the ending is like a decadent dessert.
Her secondary characters are the frame for the story and help to tie it all together. Nellie is absolutely delightful. The writing is tight, the dialogue is witty and Fern creates that magical element that makes one go back and read a book again and again.
As Billy convalesces, Sara and Dallas are very attracted to each other. However, Sara is wary of Dallas' high visibility lifestyle. He also has his fears that, she being a highly educated person, will reject him due to his inability to read. Adding to the reluctance between the two is the increasing tension between Dallas and his sibling, the business manager of the band, who also is attracted to Sara's smile. Dallas frets even as he wonders if his better educated and apparently more intelligent brother is better suited for Dr. Sara.
SARA'S SONG is a neatly composed relationship romance that will be enjoyed by readers who like competitive love stories. The lead protagonists are charming characters, whose doubts and hesitations make them seem very real. The support cast propels the story line forward. Fern Michaels has provided her readership with an entertaining and thought provoking contemporary relationship romance.
I'm one of your biggest fans.
Sara's Song is a great book, not good, but GREAT! The story is one that stays with you, the characters are memorable and I don't know how Ms. Michaels does it, but she speaks to the heart of every woman in such a way that I hate to finish the last page.
It never fails that I identify with the characters, or that they are exactly like someone I know. Her books, and Sara's Song is a great example, is a story that is germaine to life in the nineties and absolutely delightful! I give it a twelve!

This was my first book from Fern Michaels. It was horrible. I'm surprise she stayed with Dallas. The dialogue was stupid. Horrible book.Published on May 24 2000 by Libra_2526

I just couldn't get into her writing style. For some reason, her sentence style just seemed choppy, not detailed enough, and hard to get into for me. Read morePublished on June 21 1999
