Summary

Forget about Cool Britannia and Gallic Chic. Scotland is having a fashion moment.... 

London's most glamorous glossy magazine is in trouble. Advertising revenues are nonexistent, and if editor Laura Lake can't pick them up, she's out of a job. According to those in the know, Scotland is having a fashion moment. Haggis tempura is on Michelin-starred menus, smart spas are offering porridge facials and a chain of eco-hotels is offering celebrity bagpipe lessons. 

So Laura's off to a baronial estate in the Scottish Highlands to get a slice of this ultra-high-end market. It's supposed to be gorgeous, glitzy and glamorous. But intrigue follows Laura like night follows day. And at Glenravish Castle – a shooting lodge fit for a billionaire – Laura finds herself hunting for a scoop that won't just save her job, it could save her life....

Gothic humour

I really enjoyed this listen. It is fast paced, funny and, at times, quite surreal. My only quibble is with the narration. Most of it is very good and does justice to the script but why has it escaped with so many mispronunciations? These words stand out like audible typos and I found them most off putting.
