The debut that kicked off twenty-two books (and counting…) of the best-selling, beloved Aunt Dimity series. Watch out for Nancy Atherton’s latest, Aunt Dimity and the King’s Ransom, coming in July 2018 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 sizeable 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 cosy setting, as Aunt Dimity’s indomitable spirit leads Lori on an otherworldly quest to discover how, in this life, true love can conquer all.
