Aunt Dimity's Death by Nancy Atherton

Review by Andrea Maloney

Lori Shepherd has been having a tough time lately.  She's newly divorced, can barely pay the bills and the worst thing of all is her beloved mother has just died. Then she receives a letter from Willis & Willis informing her that Aunt Dimity has died.  Lori is shocked because as far as she knew Aunt Dimity was a made-up character in the bedtime stories her mother used to tell her. Soon Lori is whisked away to England to stay in Aunt Dimity's delightful English cottage while working on a task that was Aunt Dimity's last request.  Lori finds herself trying to solve a mystery that reaches back to World War II, haunted by ghosts and searching for love.

Aunt Dimity's Death is much more than just a mystery.  The mystery is actually just a small part of this delightful story. Aunt Dimity's Death is a novel that is a love story, ghost story and mystery all rolled into one. It's a joyfully written novel full of loveable characters and delightful settings. It will leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy as if you too had just sat down in a beautiful English cottage while smelling the lilacs, eating Beth's oatmeal cookies and having a nice soothing cup of tea. I highly recommend it.
