Racehorse trainer, Kurt MacKinnon, resents being yanked into undercover police work. But when his ex-partner is murdered, Kurt is determined to find the killer and moves his third-string Thoroughbreds to the backwater track where his partner was last seen alive.

Julie West, a struggling and dedicated jockey, pins her dreams of an elusive win on the new trainer in town, never suspecting she’s a person of interest–and not because of her riding skills.

Kurt didn’t expect his contrary colt to flourish under Julie’s feminine touch nor for his own rusty heart to soften. However, his deceit sucks them both into the cross hairs of a killer, and suddenly much more than their love is in danger.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I’m so glad to have come across this novel by Bev Pettersen! She kept me on the edge of my seat in this thrilling mystery! This book is perfect for horse lovers, but like a previous commenter said, it is written in a way that is very friendly for the “non-horse people” out there. A definite must read. I can’t wait until her sequel is published!


I thoroughly enjoyed reading this debut novel by Bev Pettersen . Though I have very limited knowledge of the world of horse racing,Pettersen has managed to weave a tale of intrigue and romance laced with an element of danger that is impossible to put down.The track is obviously a place familiar to the writer and she has managed to create a wonderful,well-developed cast of characters making this book a pleasure to read.I am looking forward to the author’s next book.


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. Can’t wait to read more of Pettersen’s work.


I couldn’t put it down. Literally! I read it start to finish and enjoyed every page! Looking forward to reading more books by Bev!
