Publisher's Summary

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.

Luckily the fort at home is held by Rupert's assistant, Gav, a genius with horses, fancied by every stable lass but damaged by alcoholism and a vile wife. When Gala, a grieving but ravishing Zimbabwean widow moves to Penscombe as carer for Rupert's wayward father, it is not just Gav who is attracted to her: a returning Rupert finds himself dangerously tempted.

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. And as increasingly sinister acts of sabotage strike at Penscombe, the game of musical loose boxes gathers apace....

    "Marvellous Mount"

    An avid follower of Jilly Cooper's Rutshire chronicles for over 20 years - Mount doesn't disappoint. Bringing to life familiar characters and introducing new individuals to the Cotswold countryside. I listened non stop all weekend - it felt like a reunion of old friends and scandalous family members. I laughed and cried and clapped my hands over my mouth in equal measure. Please don't let this be the last instalment Jilly...

    "Great end to a story"

    I never thought that it would be possible to have a great sequel but I found this was fantastic. It had all the trappings like riders but had suspense and longing and love. Awesome finish keeping you guessing till the end. Loved it

    "Wonderfully sentimental"

    I originally discovered jilly Cooper when I was a teenager. Polo is still one of my favourite books as it was one of those books I could not put down. Over recent years I think Jilly has slightly gone of the boil, and her attempt to be current is at times cringe worthy. However, mount was a really fun read. What I particularly liked is her references to previous novels, bringing back past characters. Her personification of all of the animals is wonderful. Mount was like the icing on the cake of all of her previous novels. All I can ask is, Jilly, would it at all be possible to write a book about what happened to Red Alderton? I like the idea of him, similarly to Rupert, finding a lovely woman that catches his heart. If you are a Cooper fan then this won't disappoint.

    "Classic Cooper"

    No one in the world talks like this, and I'm pretty sure no one acts like this. All of Coopers women are either doormats or bitches (or both), while the men are allowed a little more personality. That said, it's classic Jilly Cooper, I don't read/listen to it expecting reality, depth or nuance, and I inhaled this audiobook at every opportunity, because it's just so entertaining!

    "Amazing. Jilly brings Rutshire together once more"

    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

    Story
    "A mild case of Alkaseltzer"

    Has she lost it? So many anomalies! One, for example, where Taggie's breasts are described in all their magnificence in spite of having used them for breastfeeding in the past. Anyone who has read the previous Cambell-Black chronicles knows perfectly well that she couldn't have babies and both her children are adopted. This is but one example of Jilly Cooper's addled memory coupled with some rather poor research. However, the story was far better than "Mount" which was just a string of rather used up one-liners.

    "Not her best work but splendid, nonetheless!"

    As a lifelong fan of Jilly Cooper, this was everything I was hoping it would be. I wouldn't say it is the same league as the early Rutshire Chronicles, the story and the telling are both a little more predictable than back in the days of Riders, etc; however, that being said, this book is well narrated, fun and naughty and R. C-B is as captivatingly wicked as ever. I have listened to it four times now and haven't started skimming through bits in earnest, as yet. Long may Jilly reign :)

    "Audible may not be for me."

    I previously loved Jilly Cooper novels however, I just cannot 'gel' with 'Mount'. I don't know why but the apart isn't there. I have attempted to get into this book many times but didn't get past chapter 7.
    It maybe that, on this occasion, actually reading the book may suit me better than trying to listen to it.
    Sorry Jilly!

    "Mount"

    Great story , with twists right to the end. The characters came alive . Can't wait for the next book to appear to follow new plot lines.
