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.

Review Jockeys and Jewels
When I read a book it's from start to finish - in one sitting. I laughed and cried while the characters were being swept away in Jockeys and Jewels. I enjoyed this novel so much that for the last hundred pages I disciplined myself to read no more than ten pages at a time. I wanted to rush through, but at the same time, I wanted to prolong the experience for me - to stretch out the delicious story to that happy ending I knew was coming.
The characters were flesh-and-blood beings - not paper-doll types - and included the good, talented, bruised, and those irreparably damaged. The story entertained, even frightened me in places. Truly.
As I read I lived in the intriguing and exotic world of the racetrack. Jockeys and Jewels made me want to read and experience more. Five stars. Looking forward to reading Bev Pettersen's newest novel Color My Horse.

Jockeys & Jewels was the perfect "getaway" for me this fall. An enticing page turner, it was the perfect book to bury myself in and I looked forward to coming home from work each day and getting lost in this story; beautiful writing, strong character development and dramatic irony in each chapter to create the perfect suspense. I couldn't turn the page fast enough. Pettersen's knowledge (and I'm guessing experience?) of horses and racing demonstrates an authentic and passionate author without detailing too many technicalities - the perfect balance for we readers who may be less-versed in the world of horse racing. Very glad I came across this book; just purchased Thoroughbreads & Trailer Trash and can't wait to dive in.

Bev Pettersen does what a writer is supposed to do--engage the reader. Jockeys and Jewels is well written suspense set in the intriguing world of horse racing. Add diamonds and romance just for good measure and this reader thoroughly enjoyed turning the pages to follow Julie and Kurt`s story.

I`m looking forward to Bev`s next book Color my Horse.

This enjoyable, well written book, realistically portrays some of the more unsavoury elements of the race track world. Bev Petterson is a captivating author, and her characters could easily be found in a small town race track. The equestrian element is very well done, and I always enjoy learning more about this complex industry, and the horses that are at its core. I would have enjoyed an epilogue and even a second book, as I didn't really feel as if Julie's character was as well developed as it could have been. The story has lots of surprises, and keeps you reading until the end.
