Aunt Dimity: Detective

by

Aunt Dimity: Detective Cover

 

Staff Pick

I love the Aunt Dimity mystery series, in which Lori Shepherd is able to communicate with her late aunt through a special diary she inherited with the rest of the estate. Aunt Dimity: Detective brings, for the first time in the series, a murder mystery to solve (usually the books deal with missing documents or finding the identity of the mysterious stranger who collapses in a coma on Lori's doorstep). Not for the hardcore mystery fan, these stories are light and sweet. A dessert — not the main course!

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

 When Lori Shepherd returns from her trip to America, she is shocked to hear that Prunella "Pruneface" Hooper has been killed. This is the first murder in the village of Finch in more than a century, and everyone is in an uproar. Before the town implodes in the wake of this scandal, Lori sets out to solve the murder. Unfortunately, nearly everyone in Finch had a reason to want Mrs. Hooper dead. With the help of the ghostly Aunt Dimity and Nicholas, the enigmatic (and charming!) self-defense instructor, Lori aligns motive, means, and opportunity to unravel this delightfully tangled and gossip-filled whodunnit.

Mystery lovers' favorite ghost discovers secrets and scandals when murder disrupts an idyllic village.
