Jenny Pitman's racing heritage shines through her books. The Inheritance is the 5th in her series featuring the trainer Jan Hardy. Again, and we would expect no less, Jan has to deal with testing and trying events that keep her life far from centred and her family relationships continually strained. Great reading with characterisation and pace more like Joanna Trollope but set in the glamorous, but sometimes skuldugerous racing world.

If you are interested you can read more Jan Hardy novels in order they are On the Edge, Double Deal, Dilemma, Vendetta and The Inheritance

If you like Jenny Pitman you might also like to read books by Lyndon Stacey, Amanda Brookfield and Sarah Challis.

Synopsis

The Inheritance by Jenny Pitman

As Jan Hardy begins to recover from the wounds of the past, the stage is set for a fine year, with a wedding on the horizon, the return of distant loved ones, and the appearance of a mysterious Cherokee Indian owner, Bobby Montana, on the scene. Things are looking exciting, until a sudden death throws her world into turmoil...Is the sickness affecting Montana's horses natural, or is there some more sinister explanation? Is the handsome Irish manager Michael Finnegan a gift from the gods or a Trojan horse? And what is the painful secret Jan's father has hidden from her all her life?

Soon, Jan finds not only her personal life but her professional reputation in tatters, as her mistrust of Montana deepens, and her joy at winning at Cheltenham turns to horror after evidence of doping emerges. While old rivalries resurface, and old relationships crumble, Jan must find new friends and allies in her fight to clear her name, protect her family, and sort out the inheritance...
