Nothing to Lose
When Jasmine’s beloved grandfather Benny dies, she is left a strange bequest in his will – his bookie’s pitch at Ampney Crucis dog racing stadium. Despite the disgust of her snobbish parents, Jasmine is determined to make a go of the business in Benny’s memory. Together with some friends, she takes on the decrepit old stadium, aiming to make it the best in the country.
In London, single mum April dreams of the day when her daughter’s artist dad will come back to them, meanwhile working all hours for the dodgy Gillespie family. When April helps collect a debt for the Gillespies, she is left with a payment of her own – a manic greyhound named Cair Paravel – but her landlord’s not going to like that …
Speaking of greyhounds, the prestigious Frobisher’s trophy is up for grabs, and the Gillespies will seemingly stop at nothing to have the race held at their own stadium – but down in Dorset, Jasmine and her friends are determined to have it at Ampney Crucis …
A story of love, heartbreak, and happiness, as two determined young women work against the odds.
