...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.

Review: Aunt Dimity's Death (Aunt Dimity #1)

User Review  - Heather - Goodreads

I read this series this summer as my summer mystery series. The first book ended up being my last as it wasn't available at the library. It is a great intro to the series and makes several things clear - probably would have been best to read it first, but I found it a very touching ending. Read full review

Review: Aunt Dimity's Death (Aunt Dimity #1)

User Review  - Laura Cushing - Goodreads

A sweet start to a mystery series involving Aunt Dimity, an english ghost. This book is a lot of set up for the series, and doesn't really have a big mystery plot or anything, but it was still an enjoyable read. Will read others in this series. Read full review
