‘Victoria Fox is always a fun read’  Jackie Collins


I thought it was deliciously sinister in the best way possible- elegantly written, intriguing and hugely atmospheric. When I wasn’t reading it I was dreaming about it! It’s a true page-turner: a perfect setting, a great build up and utterly chilling.

Nicola Cornick

Brilliant, addictive and superbly gripping. I adored It. Rebecca James ramps up the tension from the first page and had me on the edge of my seat with this dark claustrophobic tale of love and obsession. Packed full of suspense and mystery. Yet within the maze of dark secrets and spreading shadows of vengeance lies a tender and moving love story. It haunts me still.

Kate Furnivall

The Woman in the Mirror is a dark treat of a book, steeped in gothic detail and heavy with unease. With shades of Rebecca, The Turn of the Screw and The Woman in Black, it unnerved as much as it compelled me to read on.

Kate Riordan

The Woman in the Mirror is a thoroughly transporting tale, both elegantly written and deliciously creepy. With the forbidding house, the relentless ocean, the echoes of past and present, it’s full of tantalising Gothic imagery: I loved it.
