I haven't read a Jilly Cooper since I was at school where they were devoured along with numerous Danielle Steele and Anne Rice novels. I was in the library when I rediscovered her and just had to take 'Wicked!' out.
She is as good as I remembered. Her characters are fab but I don't know how she does it. There are over 100 in this book alone. It helps that there's a list of them in the front but to be honest, I haven't used it yet.
I'm looking forward to getting totally absorbed in this one.
