Jilly Cooper is a well-known journalist and author of many bestselling books including Riders, Rivals, Polo, The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous.

I read a lot of Jilly Cooper but all I can remember is that they were great fun and that all her dogs and cats had clever names. Feb 27, 2014 Chloe added it.

Not bad at all, thought Harriet. Very pleasant, in fact. And when he kissed her again, she kissed him back. Panting, she pushed open the front door, and fled into the house, slap into Cory. Harriet! Thank God you’re back. God,’ he whispered, ‘we’re going to be great together. He opened his fur coat and pulled her inside, so she could feel the length of his hard muscular body against her. Oh dear, oh dear, she thought. Are you all right?’ Her hands shot to her face, rubbing mascara from beneath her eyes, smoothing her hair, tucking in her shirt. I’m fine,’ she stammered. I’ve been having a drink with Ki. ‘You’ve been out with Kit?’

Jilly Cooper HARRIET To my niece Amelia Sallit with love Part One Chapter One It started to snow as Harriet was writing the last paragraph. Looking up she saw the flakes tumbling out of a sullen, pewter-grey sky, swirling and chasing each other, drifting into the branched arms of the trees. With a yelp of excitement she put down her pen and ran to the window. The flakes were small and compact. It started to snow as Harriet was writing the last paragraph.

Quaking with nerves, Harriet gave her last pound in the world to the driver and rang the bell. After some delay the door was answered by a tall angry looking man in a black polo-necked sweater.

I read this book some years ago and fell in love with the story. Excited to have found it again on Amazon.

And I've just read it again, single, childless and thirty-three. It is always beautiful to be loved in your twenties but the reality of love and life can be crushing so not giving up (and not being bothered by childish remarks of "thirty being ancient") on life and love when it goes horribly wrong is really what it is all about.

A splendid fantasy getaway for me in my teens - and a reality check now in my 30s! :-)

I loved Harriet. It was very fun and clever. It's a light romance novel. I love Jilly Cooper and I have read quite a few of her books.

I have no illusions that Jilly Cooper is a great literary talent, nor that her novels are works of any great import. I do, however, love her work for its sympathetic characters, bubbly humour, and brilliant mastery of warmth and, oddly, suspense. You'll find plenty of all these traits in her early romance novels, as well as the later ones, so fans who found her through more recent books should enjoy Harriet and her companions just as much.

Harriet is a story about a kind, intelligent, and, above all, underrated girl, who gets herself into a fix. Anyone reading Jilly's books will notice that character types recur, if only in part. One might recognise characters from these early novels in her later Gloustershire chronicles, and it's really fun the identify fragments of those characters as you read. In the hero of Harriet I see Declan O'Hara from Rivals, a bit earlier in life. In Harriet I see a lovely mixture of Lizzie, also from Rivals, Kitty from The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous, and Lucy from Score.

I recommend tackling Harriet on a rainy weekend afternoon, with a comfy chair or sofa, and a nice bottle of wine. It's self-indulgent, unself-conscious romance, of the most warming kind, and will take you out of yourself for a few blissful hours. You deserve a break!

I bought Harriet about 10 years on cassette. I have kept an eye out for it since hoping it would go onto audio cd or download from audible. I want to keep this story forever but I don't even have a cassette player any more.

The story is so much FUN. Sure Harriet did some really stupid/silly things as a young girl and had to cope the consequences. I Love the story and it would have to be in my top 25 favourite books EVER.

So if you want a light story that will remain in your heart forever don't miss HARRIET BY JILLY COOPER. (I rarely give a 5 star I would have given a 6 star if I could have!!!!!)

I should preface this review by explaining that this is my first foray into the popular romance genre. I picked up 'Harriet' in a flying visit to a bookshop to help my recovery from a long bout of flu. I went home and read it, quite easily and happily, in one sitting.

From the first, I was surprised by the quality of the writing, which was much better than expected, although my good impression might be skewed by the fact that I read this straight after reading a 'cosy mystery' novel which was poorly written. I think Jilly Cooper has done well within the confines of the genre, supported by a readable, well polished writing style. The setting of this story, in both time and place, is superb.

My only 'problem' is that the heroine is young and attractive, so there is never any real doubt about the hero being interested in her; but this really my 'problem' with the genre as a whole, rather than this particular book.

In summary, I still don't think this genre is for me, but if and when I'm in the mood to try again, I think I would be in good hands with Jilly Cooper. I'm giving it 3 stars, which is a decent rating from me.
