Remember my engagement yesterday? The annual duty luncheon for the Reverend Mr Tait from which and whom I expected only boredom? I could hardly have been more wrong, Alec dear, and I am this minute packing to follow the Reverend home to his manse in Fife, there to attend a meeting of the Rural Women's Institute. Hardly a house party at which one would usually leap, I grant you, but not only is the man himself a perfect darling - imagine Father Christmas shaved clean and draped in tweed - but his parish, it seems, heaves with more violent passions than a Buenos Aires bordello. A stranger, you see, is roaming the night and pouncing on the ladies of the Rural. At least that's the tale they're telling and the one that Mr Tait told me, but since half the village think he's a figment and he only ever strikes at the full moon, I cannot help but wonder if there's something even odder going on . . .
Much love and remember me fondly if the dark stranger gets me,

'Mrs Dandelion Gilver is a charming creation . . . dry wit . . . sparkling dialogue and meticulous description . . . McPherson has obviously researched the background to her tale thoroughly and her knowledge of ancient folklore is cunningly used in a well-constructed plot that has many twists and turns.' (Herald on BURY HER DEEP)
'I curled up on the sofa last week when the kids finally returned to school and devoured it. Dandy Gilver is an enthralling heroine; part Dorothy Parker, part Miss Marple, utterly engaging. I loved the scenes at the SWRI and her dealings with the hapless Hugh. Catriona seems to have managed to transform the stiff prose of the era into something wonderfully fluid and beguiling. She can send chills up your spine and provoke a fit of the giggles in the space of a few short pages. Absolutely wonderful. A real treat.
It is already on loan to a friend with instructions to pass it on!'
Third book in the CWA dagger-nominated series set in Scotland shortly after the Great War and featuring Dandy Gilver, upper class amateur sleuth - Gosford Park meets Cold Comfort Farm
