I loved the way the friendship developed between Alex and Lyn, and the flashbacks to Alex's and Keir's former life are drip-fed skilfully into the story making to you turn the pages right till the end, just like the racing action does.
Janet Gover shows us why winning is more than getting 1st place!

Girl Racers is about two girls who end up forming a race team due to the unforeseen circumstances of a car crash and pregnancy. Alex Reilly is a lawyer, and a bit of a loner, who's had her heart broken. She's driving her dream car a red Lotus in her first race, when she discovers the man who broke her heart Keir Thomas will also be participating in the race. It's been twelve years since they've seen each other.
Lyn Stanton is a model. She's an unlikely participant in a car race, but she has her reasons. When she finds she may have to drop out of the race, she teams up with Alex. Lyn is not only beautiful, but she has brains, will she be able to fulfill her goals and maybe meet someone in the process who really sees her?
This book is fast paced and action packed. From the flashbacks from both Keir and Alex's viewpoints, to the five day race, the story flowed well and I was hooked form the first page, something Janet Gover has done in all her books. I like how so many topics were part of this book, like Angelman Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder, or the differences between social classes, to the prejudices faced by women in a male dominated event/hobby, and the list can go on. If you ever get the chance to read something by Janet Gover, jump at it. You won't regret it at all!
