Currently (re-) reading...

this lighthearted & funny book, published many moons ago (in 1986 actually) so a little dated but still worth a space on the bookshelf.....

It's in usual Cooper style (the main characters are Noel and Scarlett O'Aga...) with lots of humorous anecdotes but was, in my humble opinion, written with a certain integrity (before she realised how lucrative it was to turn out a chick-lit pleaser on an annual basis with titles like 'Polo' and 'Riders'.....all with basically the same theme)

Anything to divert my attention from the fact that there are ONLY 11 DAYS TO GO!!!!!!
Happy week before Christmas!.......s


  1. I will have to check that one out, Susie.I like a bit of Jilly Cooper.
    Please don't remind me that there are only 11 days to go.I'm not nearly ready, although, I say this every year and it all seems to come together some how !!
    Have a great week. XXXX

  2. I'll have to add the book to my 'To Do AFTER Christmas' list...I'm too busy reading my 'To Do NOW' list.

  3. I love Jilly's romances 'Bella, Harriet etc.'
    You blog is for me a true delight and I'll be sure to visit from time to time.
    Warmest regards,

  4. Hi Jackie, Rita & welcome Simone! Can you believe it (well, actually only 10 now!!) Those 'to do' lists are getting longer and there don't seem to be many items crossed off....!!
    Simone - have left a msg for you on your blog -thank you for your kind words...I have all those original J.C romances..they were some of the first books I bought as a teenager... Warm wishes, Susie x

  5. Dont remind me ... but hang on.. Christmas not happening here for me - only in colder climes in Northern Hemisphere!! (hope you received my email ok Susie... never know with my computer!) xx
