Reviews of The Winter Ground
“The Winter Ground is a jaunty romp with a gripping ending. But McPherson's real skill lies in her delightful rendering of the culture clash between the martini-quaffing ‘good eggs’ of Perthshire's high society and Ma Cooke's band of lovable eccentrics.”
“The period setting is beautifully painted and I loved the language McPherson uses to describe it all. Dandy Gilver is a wonderful heroine and her warmth, charm, humour and ingenuity shine through McPherson's words.
I was pleased to discover this was the fourth Dandy Gilver book, as I now know I have the pleasure of reading about her earlier escapades too. Dandy is the kind of character I love discovering — the sort you want to return to again and again, just like a long catch up with an old friend.”
“This series reaches its fourth instalment with this book and it shows no sign of losing momentum. The heroine Dandy Gilver is, in most ways, a typical lady of her period but she has the skills of a detective — to the horror of her highly conventional husband. The contrasts between her life and that of the group she is investigating here are delicious.”
