Kurzbeschreibung

SURPRISINGLY EDGY, DELIGHTFULLY ENTERTAINING, TOTALLY SATISFYING! ★★★★★


National Readers Choice Award Finalist
Romance Writers of America® Golden Heart® Finalist


"Jockeys and Jewels is a sparkling jewel of a romance--clever, entertaining, and touching." --Julianne MacLean, USA Today Bestselling Author"

"Bev Pettersen is firmly on my must-buy list. Her books sweep you away to the world of Thoroughbred racing, and her cast of jockeys, horse trainers, and grooms are lovable and unforgettable. These books were page turners. When I finished each of them, I wanted more." - Hope Ramsay, USA Today Bestselling Author of Home At Last Chance.



Ex-cop Kurt MacKinnon resents leaving his training stable to dive back into undercover work. He's seen enough sordidness to last a lifetime. But when his former partner is murdered, Kurt ships his third-string Thoroughbreds to the backwater track where his partner was last seen alive. He intends to make someone pay, even if the killer turns out to be a talented rider with a smoking hot body and a disarming smile.

Julie West is chasing a big win, struggling to boost her reputation and propel her into the elite jockey ranks. There's no time for love, but she'd have to be blind and maybe dead not to notice the magnetic new trainer in town. With her talent for handling problem horses, she agrees to work for MacKinnon, never suspecting she's already a person of interest--and it's not because of her riding skills.

Kurt never expected his contrary colt to flourish under Julie's feminine touch nor for his own cynical heart to soften. But when his investigation tightens around the truth, his deceit thrusts them squarely into the killing field.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Romance in Horselandia = YAY! 16. Juli 2011
Von Cate Rowan, fantasy romance author - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Romantic suspense isn't my usual reading genre, but I love horses, and romance + horses is a combo that made me grab this book. I'm so glad I did. It kept me up way past my bedtime several nights in a row. The main characters are unusual for romance (particularly the heroine) and well-drawn, and the secondary characters have wonderful quirks that made me smile. The romance is believable, poignant, and lets the reader savor the characters' unfolding emotions and the sexual tension instead of rushing the experience. The racetrack setting is beautifully detailed and interwoven through every page. I felt I was living at the track, too. In short, I loved sharing my evenings with this book and I'm excited about future ones from this author. Thanks for the read!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Good Story was Ruined 13. August 2015
Von ChristianReader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I am with other readers. I enjoy Dick Francis and this author could have done a good job with good character development and an engaging plot. However the graphic sex was gratuitous, unnecessary and I just skipped over it. It also was unrealistic at some instances distracting a seasoned undercover agent from doing his job. He and the female lead seemed completely unable to control themselves and when the urge hit everything else could be interrupted and let's get it on. I will not be reading any more by this author which is too bad because it could have been a good book. If sex in a story advances the plot that is one thing but explicit and unnecessary and just plain unrealistic sex-for-the-sake-of-sex ruined a good story for me.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Charlotte 2. Mai 2013
Von Charlotte - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The story line was engaging. The timing was execellent. At times the action was so intense you couldn't stop reading, then you would come into scenes that were so descriptive it was like moving in slow motion. The sounds and smells of the track became real. The colors of the flowers and the sky made a strong visual impact. Emotional the characters were at times likeable and not-so-likeable-just like the people who surround me every day. Unfortunately, combining these wonderful aspects with graphic sex scenes and unrelenting foul language didn't work for me. One reason I bought this book was the reference that claimed Petersen to be the new Dick Francis. The talent is there. The subject matter is there. Even the romance could be there. Just wish it was cleaner as I would have enjoyed reading more of this author's work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Book You Can't Put Down 6. Oktober 2011
Von Renee Field - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Jockeys and Jewels by Bev Petterson - A Book You Can't Put Down
Jaw dropping, oh my god amazingly a great read. Honestly, I did not want Bev Pettersen's book Jockeys and Jewels to end. If you don't love horses and know anything about them you will come to love them by the end of this story. I confess to being an avid horse lover and one thing that stood out for me if how obvious it is that Pettersen knows her way around horses, barns, tracks and the horse industry.

The reader is introduced from the get go to Kurt MacKinnon, who is smart, wary and a harden cop--he's basically seen all the bad in the world but what totally grabbed me was how Pettersen makes you come to love this undercover guy. We learn more about his character through the treatment of his horses and that weaves its own magic in the story. Julie West is a struggling apprentice jockey and longs to be taken serious in a field dominated by men. When Kurt's ex-partner gets killed this sets Kurt and Julie on a collision course. Let's just say sparks fly once they meet.
The character development in this book was a real page turner. I loved the sexual tension which came off as totally real between Kurt and Julie and I hated the bad guy, Otto, who I was supposed to hate. I kept waiting for a horse to kick him where it counts.

The mystery layered in this book kept me turning pages because I too wanted to find out why Kurt's friend got killed. I'm not going to spoil the book for readers because this mystery is unique with a fresh perspective on smuggling and I loved it. Set in Canada that grabbed me and I can't wait to get my hands on Pettersen's other book Color of My Horse. I loved that this is an Indie publication but honestly have no idea why a BIG publishing house didn't swoop this book up. Pettersen is a three time Rita finalist - no easy feat - and anyone who read the first three chapters of this book had to be hooked! My gut feeling is those publishing houses that said no are crying now. Can't wait to read more of Pettersen's work.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not quite 1. April 2012
Von Tracet - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a Member Giveaway on LibraryThing, in ebook form - thank you! A longer version of this review is at: [...]

What it says on the tin for this one is a mystery/romance in the racing world. And it hits all of those elements pretty equally: Kurt is looking for the reason the dead cop, Connor, was looking at the track's stables, why he was murdered, as well as who did it. Naturally enough, he finds himself irresistibly attracted to Julie, and vice versa. And the book is placed in a detailed racing setting. Unfortunately, I think it fell a little bit short on all three components.

I find the title rather unfortunate. Alliteration for alliteration's sake - spoiler or not - is not a positive, and the fact that it is a big fat spoiler for the mystery aspect of the story is a shame.

I can't say I cared about anyone in the story; some of the minor characters were enjoyable, but the main focus was on people I couldn't drum up much interest in. Kurt's lack of finesse as a lover (in the old-fashioned use of "lover" as well as that more commonly used now) is off-putting, and Julie - a driven, ambitious apprentice jockey who wants to ride more than anything else - just made me angry as she proceeded to get comprehensively drunk the night before her first big race. The stupidity blew my mind. "Kurt stepped from Lazer's stall, his expression inscrutable, and the butterflies in her stomach morphed into giant moths. Was he disgusted with her drinking last night?" If he wasn't, I was.

It was a quick read, and mostly enjoyable; it could have been better.
