Perdita thought she'd get along with them very well.
But before she had time to grow up, Ricky's life exploded into tragedy, and Perdita turned into a brat who loved only her horses - and Ricky France-Lynch. Ricky's obsession to win back his wife, and Perdita's to win both Ricky and a place as a top class polo player, take the reader on a wildly exciting journey - to the estancias of Argentina, to Palm Beach and Deauville, and on to the royal polo fields of England and the glamorous pitches of California where the most heroic battle of all is destined to be fought - a match that is about far more than just the winning of a huge silver cup Enter your mobile number or email address below and we'll send you a link to download the free Kindle App.

Cooper begins her plus page perhaps a bit too long actually story with a detailed list of the "players" involved, which, believe me, you will need to refer back to from time to time as the plot s thicken. There is a lot of shagging going on amongst the upper- crust cleverly juxtaposed against a really finely crafted explanation of how the game of Polo actually works - the fabulously wealthy owners of the teams; the professionally rated stringers; the highly trained and very costly ponies and the intense danger to all of them on the field.
But it's off the field that proves to be even more treacherous. This is a fun read. I nearly put this book down at the start as the reader is bogged down in keeping track of who's who. Ricky, however, suffers enormous tragedy early on in his polo career and so it is much easier to have sympathy for his character.
He is fighting to win back his wife, Chessie, and erase the memory of son Will, and much of his bad behaviour can be attributed to this. So, things I liked: well, Cooper has lost none of her ability to tell a rip-roaring page-turning story and I enjoy the gossipy nature of her writing style.
She is able to conjure up pictures of the polo world and the three very diverse locations in which much of the story is set. Once more, her love for horses and dogs leaps from the page since the polo ponies are the real heroes and heroines of the book. I loved the characters of Luke and Daisy, and was glad to see Ricky achieve the happiness he so yearned for. Things I didn't like can be mostly summed up by one word: Perdita. This is one of the least likeable of the characters that Cooper has written so far - so much so that you actually begrudge her redemption late in the book and feel that she hasn't suffered half enough for the pain and heartache she inflicts on others.
I also disliked Chessie, and could not understand for the life of me why Ricky would be trying so hard to win her back. One other thing that bugs me about Jilly's books is the fact that all of the most beautiful women are slender and predatory.
