Ricky France-Lynch had a large crumbling estate, a nine-goal polo handicap and a beautiful wife who was fair game for anyone with a chequebook. He also had the adoration of 14-year-old Perdita MacLeod, who couldn't wait to become a polo player. The polo set were ritzy, and gloriously promiscuous. Perdita was a brat who loved only her horses and Ricky France-Lynch....

As a Jilly Cooper fan I’ve read this book countless times. I’ve been waiting for this book and others to come out for what feels like a very long time since I listened to Riders, Jump and Mount all of which I thoroughly enjoyed. The narration on this book is pretty awful. The positive is that when Rebecca is just telling the story it’s not too bad but the Scottish and American accents are dreadful, the surname ‘McLeod’ has obviously been a challenge which has in some cases been edited over. The voices don’t fit the characters not as you’ve imagined them anyway. I don’t normally write a review but I’m not even an eighth of the way through and I felt compelled to write this. Not sure I’ll go the full way through. What a shame.

Jodi Picoult's poignant number one New York Times best-selling novels about family and love tackle hot-button issues head on. In The Storyteller, Sage Singer befriends Josef Weber, a beloved Little League coach and retired teacher. But then Josef asks Sage for a favor she never could have imagined - to kill him. After Josef reveals the heinous act he committed, Sage feels he may deserve that fate. But would his death be murder or justice?

In Jilly Cooper's latest, raciest novel, Rupert Campbell-Black takes centre stage in the cutthroat world of flat racing. Rupert is consumed by one obsession: that Love Rat, his adored grey horse, be proclaimed champion stallion. He longs to trounce Roberto's Revenge, the stallion owned by his detested rival, Cosmo Rannaldini, which means abandoning his racing empire at Penscombe and his darling wife, Taggie, and chasing winners in the richest races worldwide, from Dubai to Los Angeles to Melbourne.

The only bad thing about this book is that I got thought it so quickly it's already finished! I'm off to re-read the series from the start, only wish Rivals, Polo and The Man Who Made Husbands jealous were also available by audio. They make my commute to work every day a real pleasure!! Thank you Jilly x
