Overview


THE IT GIRLS: They're rich, fabulous... and dangerously underestimated.

IT GIRL: Alexa Cheltingham

MISSION: Pose as a grubby groom to stop a high-stakes horse killer and protect the Mayor of New York's show-jumping daughter.

A Cheltingham shoveling horse manure--what would Mother think? That was my first reaction when the Gotham Rose spy ring handed me this riches-to-rags assignment. But the country's top show horses were dying suspiciously and the Roses trusted me to catch the killer. My old leg injury wouldn't stand in my way, not by a longshot. I'd muck stalls and uncover the dirty secrets of the equine world's bigwigs, then clean up in time to host the Horses of Hope charity ball. Speaking of the ball, I'd love to have charmer Ross Hardel for my date... Too bad he's my prime suspect.

Meet the Author


Flying an eight hour solo cross-country in a Piper Arrow with only the airplane's crackling radio and a large bag of M&M's for company, Sylvie Kurtz realized a pilot's life wasn't for her. The stories zooming in and out of her head proved more entertaining than the flight itself. Not a quitter, she finished her pilot's course, earning her commercial license and instrument rating.Since, then, she's traded in her pilot's license for a keyboard, where she lets her imagination soar to create fictional adventures that explore the power of love and the thrill of suspense.Her love of the outdoors led her to take a 10-week natural resources course in early 2000 and she is now a tree steward. Recently, she's undertaken the task of going through the Backyard Tree Farm Program sponsored by the University of New Hampshire Co-operative Extension.

    Dick Francis fans will enjoy this deep look at horse racing

    Gotham Rose Club member Alexa Cheltingham anxiously has waited for her first field assignment when she learns that several suspicious accidents had happened on the Palm Beach jumping circuit with one horse who died while competing having traces of cocaine in his blood. She is to go undercover as a horse groom at the stable where the daughter of the Mayor of New York Leah Siegel trains. She is to protect Leah, but also try to uncover the identity of an assailant killing steeds. The wealthy heiress is excited, but has some concerns when she runs into Ross Herdel, someone she knew as a teen and might expose her as a sham though she knows her way around a stable.............. Alexa, knowing there is no place or show in her assignment, keeps her eyes and ears open hoping to catch someone in the act as the culprit leaves no clues behind when that dastardly punk murders a horse. She also finds herself falling in love with Ross, but fears his reaction once he learns the truth about why she is here he on the other hand ponders whether she might be involved in the horse killings as he cannot fathom why the rich heiress suddenly became a groom.................. Dick Francis fans will enjoy this deep look at horse racing that serves as the anchor to the investigative romantic suspense thriller. Alexa is a terrific protagonist as she struggles with growing feelings for Ross, but also increasing fears of what he might be doing. Readers will want to take this fine tale to the pari-mutuel window, which for this reviewer means leaving Georgia...................... Harriet Klausner
