Secretariat Reborn by Susan Klaus is a complex story with many underlying themes: horses, Thoroughbred racing, gambling, mobsters, romance, stalking, and sailing. Ms Klaus is a great storyteller. Her main character, Christian Roberts leads a relaxing life renting sailboats and dating one of the most beautiful woman on the Sarasota scene. When his dying father bequeaths him with a horse and extracts a promise from Christian to race it, Chris’s life becomes complex. Unable to meet his girlfriend’s demands, Chris ends the relationship. Unable to fund the racing cost, he gets involved with the mob.
But this heartthrob is not just a pretty face. He is resourceful, a quick-learner, and a good guy with a weakness for women and horses. He is comfortable talking with Florida Crackers as well as the most elite. You will want to keep turning the pages to see if and how he resolves his horse racing problems, his involvement with the mob, and his being stalked by his ex girlfriend.
I enjoyed the suspense, the fast pace, and learning a little about Florida, horses, and horse racing without it becoming pedantic. Secretariat Reborn by Susan Klaus is a light, enjoyable read.
