This is a very well constructed who-done-it - so much so, that the reader isn't even sure who was murdered let alone who did it until the very end. The narration is excellent. I like the setting (Scotland at New Year's Eve) and the writer shaped each of the characters to be very different from each other. One feels that one knows Miranda - we have all met her...
Lucy Foley is a great writer. The story was intriguing and the character development was excellent
Such a fun book! Perfect for holiday reading!
An okay novel. Accents were great. We had to write down characters to follow and maintain context. Final twist was intriguing - but dragged out to get to it.
