Everyone's favorite paranormal detective is back in Nancy Atherton's thirteenth Aunt Dimity mystery-but this time Lori's supernatural confidante may not be the only one who's not quite dead.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Near the start of Atherton's engaging 13th Aunt Dimity mystery (after 2007's Aunt Dimity Goes West), series heroine Lori Shepherd, the overprotective mother of five-year-old horse-obsessed twins, is alarmed when her sons insist they saw a vampire during their riding lessons. From her strange friendship with the spectral Aunt Dimity, Lori knows anything's possible, even vampires, though Lori fears a pedophile may be skulking in the woods outside the Cotswolds village where she and her family live. In search of answers, Lori cozies up to her odd, reclusive neighbors and immerses herself in local history. Lori's stable master friend, Kit Smith, lends his support. Though the vampire's identity borders on the implausible, most readers will have had too much fun to mind. (Feb.)

Kirkus Reviews
After Lori's twins claim they saw a vampire in the woods, her investigations reveal some astonishing facts. Lori Shepherd, no stranger to danger, is enjoying the peace of a charming English village until her sons enter school, turning her into an overprotective wreck. Because almost no one believes their tale, Lori (Aunt Dimity Goes West, 2006, etc.) enlists the investigative help of Kit Smith, stable master at Anscombe Riding Center, who's taking time off to avoid the crowds of rich young men besieging Nell Harris, the love of his life. Lori is anxious to get Nell and Kit married. Although they're madly in love, Kit refuses to pop the question and snaps at Lori when she urges him on. So Lori confides her fears to Aunt Dimity, her mother's deceased best friend, who speaks to her through the pages of her journal. Dimity offers reassurance along with several suggestions about the vampire's identity. Lori, robustly skeptical of vampires, thinks nearby Aldercot Hall may house the mysterious figure. Lori and Kit meanwhile meet a charming camper who has returned after a long life in Australia to an area he obviously once knew well, and they find that he is somehow linked to Charlotte DuCaral, the current inhabitant of Aldercot Hall. One of Aunt Dimity's most suspenseful mysteries. Loyal fans will be thrilled by every new revelation.

I bought this book not realizing that it was part of a series. It was not anything like what I expected but I really enjoyed it. After reading this one I had to start and the beginning and now am on the fourth book. They are fun easy reads and very enjoyable.

Do you believe in vampires? Well, Lori¿s twins think they saw one up on the hill and now she¿s frantic to find out if it¿s true! She and her friend Kit investigate the history of some strange neighbors who just might be hiding someone up in their attic. As they get to know more about the past, they meet numerous people that all were involved in a mysterious event that occulted more that forty years ago. When the story of that day finally comes out, no one realizes how close to home someone will be affected. I really enjoyed this book. The story grabs you from the start and you know another good adventure is ahead for Lori. The author adds every day life events and mixes in some mystery, that makes you want to keep reading to the very end to solve it! Nancy Atherton has done it again with her thirteenth book in the `Aunt Dimity¿ series. I never get tired of this series about Lori Shephard and the situations she finds herself in. She always comes back to opening her blue book and waiting for Aunt Dimity to speak 'or actually write to her from the other side', so she can talk to her about her adventures and get advice. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that wants a good, easy and enjoyable adventure to read. Also, I would read the rest of the series too! This is one series that will bring a smile to your face and a good feeling after every book!

I'm addicted to this series and grab the next one as soon as I can. No murder means my pre-teen daughter and I can both read the books and discuss.
