    Six years ago Zoe Reynolds killed a seventeen year old boy in self defense Unable to get past it she left the police force her lover her life and instead works with thoroughbred race horses The story begins with Zoe exercising one of the horses at the track The author does such a wonderful job of taking the reader through the cultural aspects of racing and introducing the sexism and elitism It's not blatant not in your face just a part of the scene and we see how Zoe has successfully worked around it And we learn a lot about the industry in just a few pagesAs much as she loves working the horses she's landed a perfect job at Whispering Winds Farm Problem is when she get there she learns the owners have sold the farm and are moving and the new owners are bringing in their own trainer Unsure what that means for her Zoe sticks around until she hears from and meets the new trainer Patrick Hennessy Patrick is a piece of work He has no respect for Zoe and mistreats the horses Zoe would love to leave but couldn’t bear to leave the horses Faced with the possibility of Zoe sharing his actions with the Zimmermans the new owners he starts to play nice but Zoe can see it's an act Before long healthy horses begin dying from mysterious ailments and you don't need to be a former cop to see something shady is going onOne aspect I particularly enjoyed about this story is the role of women They are ones who figure out something is wrong and investigate while the men are caught up in their arrogance Charlotte and Lisa are fun and the three women work together seamlessly The overall story reminds my of the romantic suspense I used to read As a mystery it's very good and I enjoyed the story the search the undercover work to find the truth The story is well paced and even as we get a clearer and clear picture of what is going on there is an angle that is elusive until the end then it’s all about catching the bad guy I was completely engaged until the end I do wish it had been longer had a bit meat to it thoughAs a romance however the story fails completely We learn halfway through that Zoe is gay and has a former lover in the FBI The FBI is called in at almost the end of the story she and Zoe have a few words talk a little and I mean little and all of a sudden they have made up It happens so fast you'll miss it if you blink I would have preferred interaction between the two perhaps the FBI being called in earlier forcing Zoe to work with Kathryn despite their past As it was Kathryn seemed thrown into make the story ff and had it been missing completely or made less lovey dovey at the end it would have been a stronger storyThe last chapter is also a bit of a head scratcher A year has passed and we are brought up to date on all the characters of the book except ironically Zoe where we get the smallest of footnotesOverall I enjoyed the story until Kathryn was half halfheartedly brought in She was a huge missed opportunity Nonetheless I have much interest in this author She can spin a great story capture you from the beginning and write it well

    Reviewed for Rainbow Gold Reviews A copy was provided in exchange for an honest review Don’t hate me but animals really aren’t my thing I don’t hate them but they don’t hold a lot of interest to me The beginning of this book dragged on for me as the main character Zoe describes her life riding horses for trainers It felt a little slow going and I started to lose interest The farm she works at changers ownership and the real action starts when the new trainer and owners show upThe new trainer Patrick was seriously unlikable rude and cruel to the animals He was also committing crimes along with an owner of a nearby horse farm While I chose this book because I thought it was out of my wheelhouse I really love a good mystery and found myself enjoying it Zoe seems to be the main character of the story and it’s mystery than romance and she was a good character Brave and strong with good scruples The main focus of the story is the mysterious deaths of racing horses and what Patrick’s role might be The new owners both turned out to be great people and Patrick’s nephew a real nice guy but Zoe who is an ex cop can’t let her suspicions goThe story is a fairly uick read after I got into it Sometimes if felt a little too uick and it lost a little bit of flow There was a moment when Zoe acts in self defense that I wondered if the outcome was completely necessary Other than that I really enjoyed the bookThe romance in this story is very low key The FBI agent sent to investigate the farm is none other than Zoe’s ex There is tension at first but neither one has ever stopped loving the other But there is little focus on their reunion with a much bigger threat on the horizon There was no sexand I do think that made me comfortable but I didn’t find myself feeling differently about a ff story versus a mm story I do really enjoy when characters find their happy ending and get to be with who they love no matter the gender Love is love810 Pots of Gold 80% Recommended – Compares to 45 Stars

    Off to the RacesI enjoyed this book about race horses their caretakers and the men who would do them harm The characters were believable and interesting I liked the first person narration it helped to put me into the story In spite of the heavy topic the tale was not too dark or deep It was an easy and fast read I was able to read it on a plane trip and surprised to find it done before I arrived To be fair I read uickly and I was drawn into the story and had no distractions so I was able to surrender to the saga The flow was good the plot solid and the editing great I have no complaints It is definitely worth a read Originally reviewed on Prism Book Alliance
