Nealy Diamond Clay is a famous jockey that owns and runs Blue Diamond Farms, a top horse racing farm in Kentucky.
Nealy's children, Nick and Emmie, had finaly convinced their mother to let them have a week off for vacation, which Nealy never had allowed. So when they both took an extra week off (without telling Nealy!) and one of the farm's mares had complications foaling, Nealy was angry. To her the horses came first, so she kicked them off the farm. Later in the book you find out that Nealy really kicked them out because deep down she knew knew that they would never create a life of their own if she didnt push them away from the comforts of Blue Diamond Farms.
Through this rough time, Nealy also meets up with her dead husband's best friend, Hatch, Nealy tries to fight it, but through it all she knows she has romantic feelings for Hatch.
Also, Nealy is entered to ride Shufly, her champion horse Flyby's son, in the Kentucky Derby. But Nealy is woman in her early fifties, and many people doubt her. Can she and Shufly win the triple crown races against all odds?
For awhile everything is great for Nealy. She is in love with Hatch, has reunited with her children, has had a good horse racing season, and has traveled the world with her new fiance. But can one dreadful night destroy everything for Nealy, and maybe even cost her life?
Nealy Coleman Diamond, Kentucky Heat's main character, and one of the many strong women Fern writes about, knocks your socks off every time she turns a corner. Her family and friends become your "best buds" as you read about them and grow to know and love them. Woven within the story of the Colemans are several smaller threads of stories that nab your attention as you turn each page. The smaller threads are no less exciting than the main story. Don't second guess Fern's endings -- she is the inveterate surprise ending queen. Read the book. Love her characters. Cheer them on. Then impatiently wait for her next Kentucky novel.
