Summary

The latest in this enchanting and fast-selling series, featuring the beloved ghost Aunt Dimity, opens in a picturesque English cottage where the lovable Lori Shepherd is up to her elbows in pureed carrots and formula bottles, striving to be the perfect mother to twins! Luckily, a beautiful Italian nanny arrives just in time - so Lori can help settle the local civil war stirred up by a visiting archaeologist's excavation.

With Reginald, the stuffed pink rabbit, and Edmond Terrance, the stuffed tiger in tow, Lori hunts down a missing document, and the archaeologist digs up a lot more than artifacts. It is Aunt Dimity's magic blue notebook that provides the key to buried secrets and domestic malice, and shows all the residents of Finch that even the darkest acts can be overcome by forgiveness.

Great series

I really enjoy the Aunt Dimity books. Nancy Atherton writes well. Her characters are engaging. Having started with Book 1, I readily buy into the “willing suspension of disbelief “ which is at the core of this series. It is only because of this complete devotion to Nancy’s stories that I am listening to this one to the end. Teri Clark Linden should not be reading stories on Audible. Her style is stilted and unnatural and very difficult to listen to. I looked ahead to more of Nancy’s books that I want to experience and was very disheartened to see that Ms. Linden is narrating several of them. I will not be purchasing those Audible versions.

Love the book, dislike the reader!

I love Aunt Dimity books but it would have been much better read by someone else. Intensely dislike the reader.
Some parts are just read monotonously, lots of long spaces between one word and another. Some characters sound very much out of character.
