Book Summary:


Light Sword Publishing announces the release of Patricia A. Guthrie’s first published novel “In the Arms of the Enemy.”

When the death of a racing stable’s prize horse and his trainer is blamed on the stable’s owner; his son, Adam Blakely, goes undercover convinced that the trainer’s partner, Maggie McGregor, is the killer.

Determined to leave the tumultuous world of horse racing, Maggie returns home to try and find peace. When a handsome horse owner moves his horse into her father’s boarding stable and asks Maggie to train his horse, family finances dictate that Maggie accept--and that’s when the accidents begin.

Drowning in deception and lies, Maggie and Adam search for a killer and uncover an insurance scam so insidious, it threatens to rock a horse racing empire and bring the killer to their doorstep. They need to learn to: Keep your friends close; but your enemies closer.

Review magazine "Affaire de Coeur" says, "With a strong mystery and a sizzling romance, Ms. Guthrie captivates readers from the start. This is an enjoyable thriller with a plot that will keep you guessing until the climactic end.”

Very cool - how did you get the interview? A book I will look for - you'd think there'd be more "horse fiction" out there for adults, but it's sadly few and far between.

Lots of horses lost their lives in insurance scams. It's sad that human stuped to such evil.

jdp -- Nikki Leigh, who is a book promoter, contacted me through my blog and asked if I would be interested in doing an interview. You can go to her site at (the 1st link in the Tour Schedule) and let her know if you are interested in hosting interviews in the future. That link also contains the first chapter of "In the Arms of the Enemy." I read it and actually had dreams about the characters. They really affected me.

RR -- Patricia mentions in her interview coming up about how much those insurance scams angered her.
