Sarah Broadhurst's view...

When she burst upon the publishing scene a few years ago, Dick Francis had just announced his retirement and Pan (who publish both authors) were dubbing Pitman as their new star to satisfy their Dick Francis fans. I totally disagreed with them for, although Jenny Pitman is steeped in the racing world and her books reflect that, she is no thriller writer. There is excitement and pace, there is detail and atmosphere, there are lots of horses and plenty of skulduggery, but they have a female touch, a depth of character and place that is closer to Joanna Trollope than Dick Francis. I think they are great.

Comparisons: Susan Lewis, Clare Francis, Jenny Maxwell.
Similar this month: Katie Fforde, Jojo Moyes.

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