Decaying mansion in the Lake District and family were his glamorous scatty mother who forgot the mounting bills by throwing wild parties and brothers Ace dark and forbidding and Jack handsome married and only too ready to take over with Pru if Pendle didn't get a move on It was only when she noticed the way Pendle looked at Jac. While battling with Crime and Punishment I thought I d give myself a break and read something less negative for a bit as I was getting ill weirdly at the same time as the main character and all that darkness wasn t helping me feel betterI LOVE Jilly s Rutshire chronicles but when I read Imogen another one of her shorter romance fiction titles I found it a bit teen fictiony so I decided just to stick to long Jilly Coopers However I read somewhere that Rupert Campbell Black first appears in Prudence not true so I thought for the sake of continuity I d read itI m really glad I did read it it was so lovely and comforting pure escapism and a good page turner I ll definitely give the other Jilly Cooper books a go
