I mentioned this on the other thread - I'm sure the ages are all messed up, Rupert has to be more than 57. After Score, I stopped loving Jilly's books because there wasn't enough of RCB - But, as the cover promised, Mount is!

The racing was quickly over and the sex scenes didn't have the excitement they used to and it seems that the sexual revolution missed Rutminister. And as increasingly sinister acts of sabotage strike at Penscombe, the game of musical loose boxes gathers apace . The wonders of the last book I read with Rupert in was that he fell for Taggie and became a reformed man. Rupert Campbell-Black takes centre stage once more, this time in the cut-throat world of flat racing. I also think that Jilly's extreme cleverness and powers of observation have outed themselves surreptitiously in the plot, if not the gush.

That's the second biggest thing I've had in my hand today" he told her as he washed down Love Rat's cock. I was leaning more towards my love of the wonderful characters who I had fell in love with since my grandma first lent me The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous when I was 16. is another glorious read and whilst I wasn't expecting much from an author who could have just cashed in on the notoriety of the series, I was impressed. There's always been the casual classism and sexism (RCB is her hero, after all), but the rampant homophobia seems especially stepped up this time around (predatory "faggot" bingo, anyone?

That was always the attraction of Jilly Cooper (to me at least), virtual tomes of books with covers that told you everything without needing to read a sentence. Jan was just repulsive and suddenly turned into Mad Rozzy from Score with no warning in the space of ten minutes, then vanished. I have loved Jilly Cooper's writing since reading Riders way back when and have read most of the Rutshire Chronicles, the ones I haven't read was because I hadn't seen they'd been released. In the Camilla Long interview there was quite a bit about how she'd had to support her family pretty much always - well Leo I mean.In my late teens/early twenties I made a point of finding all the other books in the Rutshire Chronicles and reading them. How absolutely glorious to spend a few days in Rutshire with Rupert, Taggie and a host of familiar and unfamiliar people, rogues, lovers, horses and dogs.

If you've read other books in the "Rutminster" series, you'll immediately recognize all the old favourite characters. In Cooper’s latest blockbuster—again set in the horse-racing world—it’s certainly not difficult to tell what she thinks of any of the characters. Gala adores horses, and when she switches to working in the yard, her carer’s job is taken by a devastatingly handsome South African man who claims to be gay but seems far keener on caring for the angelic Taggie. It humanizes RCB who, let's face it, would be an aging creepy Lothario at this point (no matter how you massage the dates for plot purposes) if it wasn't for Tag.Etta and Valent drink 2 bottles of champagne and a bottle of red while having geriatric sex - all I can say is that I would have been fast asleep as soon as I lay down after 1 bottle!
