JOCKEYS AND JEWELS (Romantic Mystery)

Jockeys and Jewels - Bev Pettersen This was a very good romantic suspense novel that kept you reading. I look forward to reading other books by this author. Racehorse trainer Kurt MacKinnon resents being yanked back into undercover police work. But when his ex-partner is brutally murdered, he moves his third-string horses to a dirt road track, determined to hunt down the killer.Struggling apprentice jockey Julie West pins her dreams of a vital win on the charismatic trainer, never suspecting she's a person of interest-and not because of her riding ability.Kurt didn't expect his temperamental colt to blossom under Julie's deft touch nor for his own rusty heart to soften. However, his deception draws them both into the cross-hairs of a killer...and now much more than their love is in danger.
