Smashwords book reviews by J Flora

  • Jockeys and Jewels on Aug. 18, 2011

    In the genre of Dick Francis, Bev Pettersen's Jockeys and Jewels will take you for a ride around the backside of horse racing. The characters are full of both warts and beauty marks, much like human nature. The personality blend is an interesting mix, neither typecast good nor bad, and brings life to the story. In addition to the mystery/romance field of interest, this may be a good mid level read if you are a new fan to racing or have a casual relationship with it. The book is not overly weighted with information on the horse racing world. For those more interested in depth of the racing world, the focus may be a bit less than expected. It would make a fine summer read and enjoyable experience for the horse lover.
