Overview

"Lori Shepherd is no stranger to trouble and intrigue. But when Bill, her high-profile attorney husband, receives a number of chilling death threats aimed at his wife and his five-year-old twins, danger hits closer than ever to home. While Bill stays in London to work on the case with Scotland Yard, Lori and the twins flee for their own safety to the home of Sir Percy Pelham, an eccentric and fabulously wealthy adventurer who lives in a vast and mysterious castle on a remote island just off the coast of Scotland." There, a mystery begins to unfold and soon Lori is knee deep in another elaborate and dangerous whodunit. She suspects that the locals are making a fortune running an illegal smuggling operation. What else could explain their luxurious, carefree lifestyle? But after finding a human skull washed up on the beach, Lori fears something even more sinister is going on. With Aunt Dimity's supernatural help, Lori begins to piece together the clues, unaware of the growing danger on the island. Will the murderous threats against her family catch up with her before the case is solved?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Nancy Atherton's Aunt Dimity and the Deep Blue Sea, her soothing 11th cozy starring U.S. ex-pat Lori Shepherd (after 2005's Aunt Dimity and the Next of Kin), Lori and her twin sons, Will and Rob, retreat to the scenic Scottish isle of Erinskil after Lori's lawyer husband, Bill Willis, receives death threats via e-mail. The ideal refuge, however, soon becomes a hotbed of trouble, and Lori's forced to depend more on her own instincts than the advice of the ghostly Aunt Dimity, who communicates through journal entries, to protect her sons' lives as well as her own. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A death threat sends a family fleeing from the West Midlands to the western isles of Scotland. When attorney Bill Willis is threatened, he packs off his sleuthing wife Lori Shepherd (Aunt Dimity Takes a Holiday, 2003, etc.) and their twin sons to the remote island of Erinskil, where old family friend Sir Percy Pelham is the laird. While her husband works with Scotland Yard to track down the source of the threats, Lori enjoys the island, with its quaint legends of the past. The twins romp on the beach with their bodyguard Andrew Ross; Lori's minded by enigmatic bodyguard Damian Hunter. A trip to the pub reveals Peter Harris, a West Midlands neighbor, and his friend Cassie, masquerading as bird watchers to escape tabloid reporters. Noting on their birding expeditions a prosperity the island's farming and its tweed mill can't explain, they wonder if the mysterious lights they see at night are evidence of drug smuggling. After Peter vanishes, the search leads Lori and Damian to the hiding place of ancient treasures and modern cash. Barely escaping death when the stalker tracks them down, Lori learns all in the denouement. Lori's soothing familiar, Aunt Dimity, has little to do in this unmysterious tale. Fans will have to settle for the trip to Erinskil and the recipe for lemon sticky cake.

    Great story

    I love this series and have now read all of the books. They are charming and entertaining. This book is particularly intense and I wouldn't recommend it for children.

    One of the great things about this series is I can escape into the lives of the characters living in a charming village in England.

    Don't miss out. The series starts with Aunt Dimity's Death. I highly recommend you start at the beginning.

    Aunt Dimity and the Deep Blue Sea

    What can I say, I just get totally lost in these books, I just love them. It is so easy to imagine being in the story itself.. I just wish there were more of them.

    My First Aunt Dimity Book

    I bought this book before I realized that it was part of a series. Even though I read it out of order, I still really enjoyed it. I saw it described as a cozy mystery, which is a great description. It is the kind of book you want to read while curled up with a cup of tea. It was a creative, well written story. I already picked up her first book to start at the beginning!

    Slow Down

    If you have an idea that you would like to slow down your pace and really just read for fun, you'll enjoy this Aunt Dimity book. These books don't solve the problems of the world or explain rocket science, but they sure do provide a couple hours of relaxed reading for the busy mind. Slow down and enjoy this ghostly little read !!

    Modern Death Hides in Ancient Castle

    It had been a while since I had read any of the Aunt Dimity books. I was memerized by this tale of intrigue, complete with death threats causing Lori Shepherd and her 5-year- old twins to be forced into hiding in an ancient castle on a secluded Scottish island. True,everyone in the story was surrounded by an embarrassment of riches, especially the twins, but why not? The world is made of the haves and the have-nots. It is not mandatory to include 'poor little urchins' in every single story written. Variety is the spice of life, not to mention the reality.

    Aunt Dimity Disappoints

    I am a fan of Nancy Atherton's work and look forward to new installments of the Aunt Dimity series. However, this one left me flat. I especially disliked the voice given to her two five year old sons. It also irked me now how every character is of privilege. I also would of liked for there to be more interaction with Aunt Dimity.
