I’ve read a few books in this series before and really enjoyed them. Catriona McPherson’s writing is so wonderfully evocative of a bygone era and never fails to draw me in. ‘The Mirror Dance’ is another excellent story, this time set amongst the publishing houses of Dundee. Dandy Gilver is once again on the case, and with her sidekick Alex Osbourne and razor-sharp maid, Grant, she becomes embroiled in a puzzling mystery.
I loved that the story was set in the publishing industry and that we got to imagine what it may have been like in the heyday of Dundee’s famous newspapers and magazines. Dandy’s dogged investigation threw up some red herrings and twists and turns that I did not see coming. The ambience was perfectly done, the descriptions exquisite. The story was inventive and fascinating and the perfect cosy mystery. Thoroughly enjoyable.
I was given this ARC to review.
