Kentucky Rich

New York Times bestelling author Fern Michaels took readers on an emotionally rewarding journey when she created the Colemans and Thorntons, the unforgettable American families of her TEXAS and VEGAS series. Now, the next generation of Colemans and Thorntons are back in an exciting new trilogy that combines the heady thrills of Kentucky horse racing with strong, accomplished women who fight for their dreams. Kentucky Rich

Josh Coleman left behind the unfinished family business when he took to his deathbed at SunStar, the thoroughbred horse farm he'd built from nothing. But now that unfinished business cannot be ignored--because his long-lost daughter has come back to settle an old score.

Nealy Coleman no longer resembles the teenaged waif who slipped away the middle of the night with her illegitimate child, Emmie, thirty years ago. This Nealy is rich, sophisticated, and renowned in the racing world--a woman to be reckoned with.

Nealy's shocking return will change everything for her two brothers, Pyne and Rhy; for her daughter, Emmie; and for all the Thorntons and Colemans, who have strong connections with SunStar. And when the truth about her father and a family's troubled past is revealed, Nealy will find herself faced with the greatest challenges of her life--challenges that will test her courage in unexpected ways and reveal what is truly important.

In Kentucky Rich, Fern Michaels surpasses herself once again, with a novel as rich and lush as the Kentucky bluegrass country itself. . .a story of stunning power that ushers in an extraordinary new trilogy.
