delightful mystery and self discovery. nice escape. ( )

There isn't much of a mystery here, most of it lies with uncovering some secrets of the past, but I still very much enjoyed this book. It was more a story of the power of love & forgiveness over anger & fear than a whodunit type mystery. It's also a bit of a fairy tale complete with fairy godmother type benefactor & a sweet romance. I think now that Lori is set up in this manner the other books in the series are more traditional mysteries with Aunt Dimity's ghost being helpful. ( )

This is a charming book with likable characters and gorgeous sounding locales. Looking forward to reading more in this series about personal growth and solving mysteries. ( )

A mystery/ghost serial. It's a fun read. No. Not the greatest mystery in the world nor is there murder one. Sometimes, it's just nice to escape into a simple story. Aunt Dimity is a ghost. Not really a spoiler. She is the ghost of Lori's mother's best friend who takes a special interest in Lori. ( )

Book description
Atherton's first mystery combines a strong sense of traditional English fare with an insistent gothic spirit. Suffering from her recent divorce, her mother's death, and an erratic income, Lori Shepherd receives notice from a prestigious Boston law firm that she must travel to England in order to meet the requirements of a will. While visiting her benefactor's "haunted" cottage with lawyer friend Bill, she uncovers important clues relating to a World War II mystery.
