5.0 out of 5 stars What's next, Bev?, December 20, 2011
This review is from: FILLIES AND FEMALES (Mystery Romance) (Kindle Edition)
This book, Fillies and Females is the third book I've read, written by Bev Pettersen. As I read through the novels in her appealing `track' series, I found that with each new book my favourite changed. And while reading, I loved them all. First it was Jockeys and Jewels, then Color My Horse, and now this marvel. Bev's writing style with its snappy dialogue and appealing characters keeps grabbing my heart to ensure a connection grows there, that my time as a reader has been spent well and is satisfying. Like a retreat.
Now I'm feeling bereft, as if I've become addicted to horses and race tracks - though I have never set foot on either. Becky and Dino move through an appealing story that addresses the danger we face when we allow the `quick fixes' or desire for `monetary gains' to control our lives. It reminds us we must listen to our hearts. Heed out own wisdom.
Bev's characters always are empowered to remain who they are, at the core, and by being themselves, to set things right. In this novel, by doing the right things, Becky and Dino both win. Becky finds a real home and her wildest dreams become reality. Her world and the larger world become better places. And Dino sheds his anger and stops dreaming of a return to the past. Only then can he recognize and accept what he has, and live a new and more fulfilling dream, with Becky. I loved Fillies and Females and can hardly wait to see what Bev Pettersen releases next.
