Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Nancy Atherton's Aunt Dimity and the Next of Kin, the 10th entry in her warm British cozy series featuring U.S. ex-pat Lori Shepard and her ghostly aunt (after 2004's Aunt Dimity: Snowbound), Lori's fondness for Elizabeth Beacham, a retired legal secretary whom she meets while volunteering at Oxford's renowned Radcliffe Infirmary, leads the amateur sleuth on a quest, after her new friend's sudden death, to find the woman's lost brother. From the maze of Oxford streets to Miss Beacham's elegant flat, where the reader can almost smell the aroma of her special raisin bread (recipe included), Atherton creates a world in which we would all like to live. Agents, Meg Ruley and Annalise Robey at the Jane Rotrosen Agency. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Cozy Up

    I've been reading cozy mysteries as research since I have a couple series I'm writing. Unfortunately, I'm finding that most are rather disappointing. They aren't well written, the characters are pretty two dimensional, the mysteries are transparent and so on.

    This one was a pleasant surprise. Lori Shepherd has inherited a house in England from her late mother's best friend, "Aunt" Dimity. She found out when she took possession of the house that Aunt Dimity can still communicate with her through a journal. Now Aunt Dimity helps her solve mysteries.

    In this book, Lori befriends an old woman in a retirement home. When the woman dies, Lori sets out to find the woman's long lost brother. Along the way, Lori is involved in the grand opening of a riding academy and the lives of her twin five-year-old boys.

    While there is the expositional dialogue problem that a lot of cozies suffer from as well as the really convenient plot points, this one has well rounded characters--especially Lori and her husband. And I didn't feel the ending was cheat. I'll definitely pick up more of Nancy Atherton's books in the future.

    Aunt Dimity!! Next of Kin

    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.

    Another great Atherton mystery!

    I btought this home in the early evening and finished it before retiring. I couldn't put it down. Nancy Atherton can craft an amazing mystery without killing anyone. Start at the beginning of this series and read them all. They are unusual mysteries that shouldn't be missed.
