    It's the only book in the series I read. I found it a good read, but pretty forgettable.

    Thankfully this got a little better toward the end. I must have told myself to 'quit' once per page in the first 100 pages. I didn't read the first two books, though I don't think that was the problem. Just too many over the top story-lines and difficult to like characters.

    This epic continues in book 3. Nealy continues to be upset with Emmie, movie is made of Nealy and her lofe, Willow pops in and out, Emmie gets very sick and spends a year in rehab where she and her dad reunite, Nealy even runs another Derby, etc, etc, etc.Near the beginning of this book, I did not like Nealy very much. She has become greedy, self-centered, and a control freak. Fortunately, she finds help and comes to understand a lot of things though there continues to be contention between herself and Emmie.If this book had ended with the last chapter, it wouldn't have been too bad; however, there were still too many loose ends and unanswered issues.The Epilogue was very disappointing and left the reader hanging. The only thing it "proved" was what Nealy had continued to say to and about Emmie, and that was already a given.These books are not a fairy-tale romance. They are the problems and frustrations of several generations of people that are not unrealistic in real life..

    Loved this read, I couldn't put the book down.Had a lot of the different families in it.It was ended with an avenue for the author to write some more books with this family.I didn't really understand the need for the Willow storyline in this 3rd book of the series - it was not needed at all, and I felt served no purpose.Nick wasn't in it too much.Hutch seemed pretty peeved off with Nealy for a lot of the book.Nealy's daughter is diagnosed with an ailment after ignoring it for a long time, as her mum had told her to always work through the pain. She let the farm go as well, not just at the beginning of the story.Nealy didn't seem like she loved that daughter too much over the years.The race ending was really unbelievable, but who wants a winner and loser!I have to say I enjoyed this one the most, and it only took a few hours to read it as the pages just kept turning.

    Denise, Central patron, July 2016, 4 stars:This is the third installment in the Kentucky series. I was kind of disappointed in it but it is still a good read. I wanted to keep reading because I knew it was going to get better and then lag and then get better. With that in mind, I would recommend the book to anyone who likes horse racing or even if you don't. All the books in this series give you enough background so you understand the different terminology used. You follow the career of Nealy Coleman Diamond Clay Littletree and her family. You could read this out of order but it is much better in order because of the spoilers that would be in the later books that you don't want to know.

    I gave it two stars instead of one only because this is book 3 in a trilogy and I hadn't read the other two. Generally I feel like these types of books are easy reads where you get enough back story in the first few pages to fill you in enough anyway. Maybe I'd feel differently if I'd read the other two, but I just couldn't care less about any of the characters and was just bored. I made it about halfway through... again, maybe it would have picked up if I'd finished it but I feel like if I've read 150 pages and don't want to read anymore, the end.

    I thought that this book was a good way to end the series, I loved the way things wrapped up without becoming easy for Nealy who fought through it all. Some of the things that happened just tore my heart out, but the fact that everything ended happily is what makes me love stories like these. I'm going to have to find the Texas and Vegas series and read them as well so that I will have a full picture of this amazing extended family.

    The last year I ran a riding program my staff gave me this book as a parting gift. We read it out loud on the drive from Seattle to Baltimore. It was awful in a fairly hilarious way. The horse details were terribly off, and the protagonist's attempt to battle back from disease to race in The Derby (the only race in existence) felt extremely far-fetched.

    This book is the third and final book in the Fern Michaels series about Nealy Diamond and the Coleman family from Texas. I enjoyed the read. There was always something unexpected to keep the story a page turner.

    The last of the series....should be finished by the weekend. I can't say that I like the last book, it does make you wonder about people. Hmmm...will wait and see.Well, it does have a twist at the end...

    This was a good wrap up to the trilogy. I was glad that tings were not too easy for anyone. I found the ending very sad for all of them, but a realistic description of a totally dysfunctional family for many generations. I also wish that Ruby and Mataxis made more appearances.

    I really wanted there to be another book in this series, just because there were so many loose ends at the end of this book. I love all of the other parts of this series, but this one just felt hurried and abrupt.

    Good read. The third of three by Fern Michaels. There were a couple very cliche parts, butoverall interesting. If you are looking for a sweet story with an ever so happy ending, thisis not it! There was a wrap-up of most of the characters, but not in the way one would expect.

    Third in a sequel. I'm not reading the rest, but this was OK as a fun summer read. Wealthy horse racing family. The characters kept jumping around whether they were the good guys or the bad guys, depending on what stage of life they were in. Made it more interesting than most pulp fiction.

    I usually like Fern Michaels. It was all I could do to get through the series. Dull story and unremarkable characters, most of whom I struggled to like. Have decided not to read her two related series (Vegas and Texas) as I fear it will be more of the same. Unfortunate.

    I loved this book and thought it a most fun summer read UNTIL the last 6 pages which I HATED. The end seemed to come out of nowhere and for no real reason. Very unsatisfying.

    Overall I thought this book was really good. The one thing that I didn't like was at the end there is a part that I found extremely cheesy.
