Review:

Katharine McMahon is a highly adept and imaginative writer * THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY * McMahon juggles her many plotlines with such skill...A richly entertaining yarn. * READERS DIGEST * This great, heart-stopping page-turned is the sequel to the wonderful The Crimson Rooms.. ....private and professional struggles play themselves out against the canvas of a wider social conflict, the 1926 General Strike; and the novel fairly steams with boiled-wool period atmosphere. McMahon is the mistress of telling contrasts, and of charged, passionate and beautifully crafted prose. -- Wendy Holden * DAILY MAIL * The roaring 20s are brought fizzingly to life in Katharine McMahon's The Woman in the Picture. This elegant story about a feisty young woman torn between head and heart is absorbing and atmospheric. * GOODHOUSEKEEPING * This novel's skilfully crafted atmosphere draws the reader in from the first page, and the protagonist's compassion for the people she defends is impressive. The cases she becomes embroiled in are interesting, but the love story is the most gripping part. McMahon is a talented writer whose twists will keep you turning pages. It can be easy to forget that not so long ago, women were still fighting to be taken granted in the workplace 0 this book reminds us it was not in vain. * THE LADY * Evelyn is a brave, intelligent character, especially given the sexism of the times, and you will find yourself rooting for her and the people she defends. * WOMAN MAGAZINE * You'll immediately fall for Evelyn, the lead girl in The Woman in the Picture... * COMPANY MAGAZINE * I'm hooked by Evelyn and those around her and I love the sense of the period. Katharine McMahon is a great storyteller. * NIAMH CUSACK * No matter the era, professional women always struggle to balance that old chestnut - love versus a career. If you think you've got it bad now, just imagine living in the 1920s and being one of the first women to qualify as a solicitor... * GRAZIA * The author of The Crimson Rooms returns with this sequel, a Mitford-style 1920s thriller. * RED MAGAZINE *
