Review: Jockeys and Jewels by Bev Pettersen

I was kept in the story. Good see the races and horses.
Kurt is a horse trainer and his horse is about to race when he gets a call. He looks at who's calling and finds his old boss Archer from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. He quit 11 months ago to be a full time horse trainer. He was tired of going undercover all the time.
Archer said,"They needed him on this case as a horse trainer and not to take his good horses. His old partner Connor had been murdered. He had stopped to help a horse trailer and after followed him to the track.  He talked to a jockey named Julie West. The trailer belonged to Otto Laing."
So Kurt left his good horses and took a new horse to teach the gate too. and a Horse that looked good but had lost all of his races so far. Also took Cisco his work horse.
He is across the barn with his horses to Otto's horse but he cant see that horse because its blocked off so no one can bother it. Otto horse hates him.
Kurt offers Julie to ride his horse in the mornings and see how well she does at her first race before deciding who will be jockey for the race.
Kurt fits in because he is a real trainer and no one knows he is a cop.
It shows the world of racing. How hard undercover can be with all the lying.
I enjoyed reading Jockeys and Jewels and look forward to reading more books from Bev. I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review.
