The Mystery of Dunvegan Castle by T. L. Huchu: Fun Mystery

She came for magic. She stayed to solve a murder . . .

Ropa Moyo is no stranger to magic or mysteries. But she’s still stuck in an irksomely unpaid internship. So she’s thrilled to attend a magical convention at Dunvegan Castle, on the Isle of Skye, where she’ll rub elbows with eminent magicians.

For Ropa, it’s the perfect opportunity to finally prove her worth. Then a librarian is murdered and a precious scroll stolen. Suddenly, every magician is a suspect, and Ropa and her allies investigate. Trapped in a castle, with suspicions mounting, Ropa must contend with corruption, skulduggery and power plays. Time to ask for a raise?

In The Mystery of Dunvegan Castle by T.L. Huchu, the third in the Edinburgh Nights, the story is a fun mystery, with a character with a vivid voice, intrigue that is effortless to jump into despite being the third book and a wonderfully detailed world of magic. The characters are exciting to read, jumping off the page. 

The character of Ropa is scathing of society, has an interesting commentary on money and how the rich behave and is intriguing in that she’s not fearless but still carries through to figure out who the killer is, not just because of her boss but also because she genuinely cared about the librarian. The secondary characters will keep you guessing as to who the actual killer is and how they pulled it off, but by the end, you will be riveted as Ropa explains what happened. 

If you like mysteries and magic, this is a wonderful book that will keep you entertained with the fun mystery, the magical shenanigans, and the interesting cast of characters. The world building is phenomenal, especially in how it differs from our world and  I found it fascinating to read.
