First in the Aunt Dimity series
Finished: Sept. 15, 2007
Reason for Reading: when I read a blurb about this series and saw mention of a ghost as one of the characters, my interest was piqued and I just had to try it out.
First Published: 1992
Genre: cozy mystery, ghost story
When I learned of Aunt Dimity's death, I was stunned.
Comments: This book was pure joy! What a charming, delightful story. A down-and-out recent divorcee finds she's come into some money when a relative she didn't know about dies. Only she must travel to England first to settle some matters and uncover the secret surrounding Aunt Dimity. This book is classified as a mystery but there really isn't much mystery to it. It involves a secret, but the book defies genre. It starts out as a fairy tale, turns into a ghost story and all the while is a romance. The characters were a delight and I found myself smiling the whole time I was reading this book. This book is most certainly a "cozy" and a warm, friendly read. I'm looking forward to meeting these characters again in the next book. Recommended!
