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....

Contemporary with good character development. Tugs at my heart strings. More mystery and people interaction than prior book.

Hysterical yarn

Loved it. So much fun. Full of life. A well written page turner. Great old characters turning up.

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.

Spot on!

I've read all of Jilly Cooper's books about Rupert Campbell-Black and friends but this is my first audiobook version. It was spot on - really brought the characters to life, just as I had imagined their voices. As with all the books, it was great fun and a really good read. Looking forward to the next one!

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...
