Editorial Reviews

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.

Fern is at her amazing best! Once again, Fern manages to interweave her characters, making them both believable and fascinating at the same time. Dr. Sarah Killian and rock star Dallas Lord shouldn't have anything in common. They come from two very different worlds. Somehow, through their differences they find each other's strengths--from this love blossoms.

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.

Aging rock star Dallas Lord meets Dr. Sara Killian while she attends his ailing friend. They immediately spark up a friendship, and wanting to settle down, he asks her to marry him. She is also ready to settle down. Despite both admitting that they are not actually in love, they agree to an engagement. Dallas writes Sara a haunting love song as a wedding present. And soon disappears, believed to have been killed in an airplane crash. Dallas survives and decides that this is the perfect opportunity to start all over.

Dallas' brother Adam has always taken care of Dallas. When they were young, Dallas hurt himself, and Adam has always felt responsible for not looking after his kid brother. An attorney with amazing business sense, Adam has managed to amass a fortune for Dallas and a comfortable future for his band mates. A falling out between the brothers makes Adam realize that he just wants to retire and take it easy, and resigns from Dallas, leaving him to fend for himself. He feels tremendous guilt when he learns about the plane crash, but returns to LA to sort his estate out.

It turns out that Sara is sitting on a gold mine - the last recorded song by a fallen superstar. And a gold digging back up singer will do anything to get her hands on it. When Adam confronts Sara about the song, she assumes that he is behind her string of bad luck, and Adam finds himself attracted to his brother's fiance.

While the storyline itself was interesting, the dialogue was a bit trite (I kept wondering what decade this was supposed to take place in, despite the presence of cell phones), the characters lacked chemistry, particularly Dallas and Sara - heck, they even admitted they did not think they loved each other, so why should we? There was so much room for improvement and it would have made a great love triangle. All in all, it was a disappointing story, even if it had a happy ending.

Because I work full time and am raising a family my reading time is special to me. I saved this book for the long 4th of July weekend along with Finders Keepers. I read both of them while I sat under my sun umbrella in two days. What a mix of characters in Sara's Song. Each character was so totally different and so real I hated to see the book end. I thought the plot was really good and I rooted for Dallas from the git-go. I had the feeling he was somehow going to be very special to the book even though he "died". I have an aunt like Nellie who is so in your face I thought I was reading about her. That's what I like about this author's books. Everything is so real I feel like I experienced whatever it was that was happening myself. A lot of writers can't make me feel like that. It was a great book.
I'm one of your biggest fans.

I read this book in one day. I love books that contain scenes with animals because I am an animal lover. I thought Tom Silk was a very appealing character. I liked the way the characters got in each others face.
Sara and her sister were more than believable as were Dallas and his brother Adam. Ms. Michaels must have brothers and sisters that she drew from.
This was a very good read and I highly recommend it.Lucy Baker

Format: Hardcover
Sara's Song was an interesting book. The author Fern Michaels takes two opposites and prove that they are opposites and they should never be anywhere near each other other than passing on the street. She manages to defuse one of the country's greatest doctors in the name of Dr. Sara Killian while simultaneously exposing the underside of one of the country's greatest rock stars in the name of Dallas Lord.
Come now, what would a promising doctor really want with a rock star, each of which was about 40 years old. Fern has a monumental task on her hands with this storyline. Needless to say, Fern rises to the call. The good doctor leaves her throne and comes down the ladder to become a potter while the rock star reaches out for more education up the ladder. Compromise, compromise, compromise becomes very easy to do when such wide spans have to be covered. After many smoke screens, they get together and vow to love each other for ever and ever of which a song--book title-- (Sara's Song) was written to document same.
Why can't real life play out like these wonderful books???????
