    As long as the author writes Aunt Dimity stories, I will read them

    To get rid of the February blahs, Lori Shepherd, her twin eight-year-olds and Bree Pym, who’s staying with them while paint fumes diminish at her house, visit a local museum. There, Lori meets a beautiful young girl, Daisy Pickering, whose mother works at the museum – and Daisy spins a tale of a lost prince. At first, Lori thinks the story is simply from the imagination of a very creative mind. But Lori comes to believe that there may be some truth to the girl’s story. When Daisy and her mother disappear, leaving the area without leaving a forwarding address, Lori feels she must find out more about the “lost prince.” Lori and Bree join forces to interview, under the guise of being journalists, several people in the area for whom Daisy’s mother Amanda did domestic work, thinking that the girl’s story came from somewhere, possibly from the estate homes for which Amanda worked, and where the sickly Daisy often accompanied her. The Aunt Dimity books tell can’t-put-it-down stories that I truly love. They’re not the kind of books that I could read all the time, but once I year, they’re a special treat I look forward to. Ms. Atherton creates a world where almost everyone is a good person (and those who aren’t are to be pitied) and everything works out in the end. They’re cozy and sweet and totally reliable. As long as the author writes them, I will keep on reading them. For those not in the know, Aunt Dimity is the spirit of Lori’s mother’s best friend, who appears through a magic journal, and gives Lori advice on her life and adventures. It’s ironic that Lori is now, in book 18 of the series, a wise older woman to Bree, helping her through life’s hurdles and being there for her just as Aunt Dimity is for Lori.
