I bought this book as soon as it was released purely because I’d read the first two books in the Reluctant Detective series and I knew it would be a great story.
It didn’t let me down.
The Reluctant Detective series stars the wonderful Mirabelle, a loving, compassionate, funny, and flawed woman, living in Edinburgh. In the first book, Searching for Summer, Mirabelle’s daughter runs away from home and as Mirabelle looks for her, she inadvertently helps others find lost loved ones and the agency begins.
Rusty Gold continues Mirabelle’s story as she struggles with conflicting emotions caused by the many facets of her life. The demands of those seeking her help and her longing for her daughter take her to the beauty of Scotland’s Isle of Skye, and an ending with heart stopping suspense.
I love these books. Christine Campbell has a wonderful ability to draw you into the story and take you along for a wonderful ride. Her descriptions of Edinburgh and the Scottish countryside allow you to easily imagine yourself alongside the characters during their travels. And those deep fried Mars bars…
If you want a great story full of colourful characters, mystery, and all the emotions that go along with living, all set in the beauty of Scotland, this series is well worth reading.
Rusty Gold -
‘Find her,’ Agnes Donald begged. ‘Find my daughter.’
The words of a dying woman force Mirabelle to take on another case for the unofficial Missing Persons Bureau she runs from her Edinburgh flat.
Along with her assistant, Kay, she heads for the island of Skye where Esme Donald was last known to be. But is someone else looking for Esme too? And could Mirabelle’s own daughter, Summer, be in danger?
