Overview

The third in the bestselling and beloved Aunt Dimity series. Watch out for Nancy Atherton's latest, Aunt Dimity and the King's Ransom, coming in July 2018 from Viking!

Nancy Atherton's growing number of fans will certainly be delighted by Aunt Dimity's latest appearance in the honey-colored English cottage she bequeathed to her "niece," Lori Shepherd. Thanks to Aunt Dimity, Lori's life has taken on fairy-tale proportions: she's financially set for life and happily married or so she thinks. When Lori's plans for a second honeymoon to England with her workaholic husband fall through, she begrudgingly takes along her father-in-law who promptly disappears, leaving behind a mysterious note.  Inspired and guided by the ghost of Aunt Dimity and her inimitable blue journal, Lori's search for the elderly gentleman turns into a harrowing mission to uncover a centuries-old family secret complicated by mistaken identities, falsified deeds, family feuds, and Lori's unseemly attraction to her husband's beguiling English cousin. In a delightful chase that takes her all over the English countryside, Lori discovers the true meaning of marital bliss, and Nancy Atherton's fans, new and old, will savor a masterpiece of old-fashioned fun.

I love a good mystery. I happened across this book by chance, brought it home and picked it up one night for a light read. It was a fun book and way to easy to read, that I didn't put it down. I can't wait to get ahold of the whole series. Aunt Dimity is a very wise woman and knows how to dish out the advice, even if she's not there. If you believe that there are spirits that guide us from beyond, you should read this series. I recommend you start from the beginning so you get the story plot from the beginning

This series features utterly charming characters, with just a touch of the afterlife. Told mostly from the standpoint of Lori Shepard, this installment has just the right mix of madcap running around, sinister goings on, and character driven story telling.

This series continues to delight me, I'm not sure what took me so long to discover it!

Perhaps my favorite Dimity book yet. Funny, light, with just the right amount of quirk. The intrigue and characters keep the pages turning. Nell is wonderful. My only true complaint is that this e-version has numerous errors. The true intent can always be deciphered, but it is distracting.

This book takes off right where the first one leaves off. Aunt Dimity hasn't been back to the little cabin since she was barred under a tree with the love of her life (well their rings anyway). Our main character, Lori, is lonely and missing her husband (who has become a workaholic). They have decided to take a second honeymoon in England when the adventure starts. Lori shows up, Bill stays in the states to work, but Bill's father comes with her. Out of the blue he disappears to dig up the true history on the Willis family and Lori must stop him, with the help of Aunt Dimity of course. This book is a quick fun read with great characters and love is always in the air.

This series of mysteries is focussed on American Lori Shepherd, and the ghost of "Aunt" Dimity Westwood, her late mother's English best friend. Lori never met Dimity in life, but she can communicate with her spirit though a mysterious blue journal. The series also includes apparently sentient stuffed animals and a great deal of paranormal activity. The series is extremely sweet, with the good characters being exemplars of generosity and kindness.In this book, Lori tries to find her missing father-in-law, and ends up meeting the British side of the Willis family law firms. They are in disarray, stemming from an 18th century murder, which Lori and Dimity must solve to restore present pece.

As always I really enjoyed this Nancy Atherton story. In the last book I was a little disappointed that the characters were different from those in the first book of the series.. however in this book the characters from both brought together.

I definitely did not like this book as much as the previous two. It was just... silly. There were components that made for a potentially charming and interesting mystery, but the willful miscommunications and misunderstandings and low-grade romance story lines were not my cup of tea.
