Rate this:
The debut that kicked off twenty-two books (and counting...) of the bestselling, beloved Aunt Dimity series. Watch out for Nancy Atherton's latest, Aunt Dimity and the Widow's Curse , coming in May 2017 from Viking!

Lori Shepherd thought Aunt Dimity was just a character in a bedtime story...

...Until the Dickensian law firm of Willis & Willis summons her to a reading of the woman's will. Down-on-her-luck Lori learns she's about to inherit a siazable estate--if she can discover the secret hidden in a treasure trove of letters in Dimity's English country cottage. What begins as a fairy tale becomes a mystery--and a ghost story--in an improbably cozy setting, as Aunt Dimity's indominable spirit leads Lori on an otherworldly quest to discover how, in this life, true love can conquer all.

I'd already read of few of the later books in this series, so I was delighted to find the first one. It did not disappoint. A nice light read, with some humour, mystery and a bit of romance.

Thanks to the dash here's another wonderful series. Great storyline a little romance, a little mystery a whole lot of fun. I'm planning to read to whole series got number two on hold. The people in tv land and Hollywood need to look at these kinds of stories if they want to get the largest part of the population into theaters and back with cable.
