Overview

An irresistible introduction to everyone's favorite cozy mystery series

Over the course of fourteen successful books, Nancy Atherton's Aunt Dimity series has become enormously popular. Now, with the first two mysteries in one volume, Introducing Aunt Dimity, Paranormal Detective makes it easy to get a taste of the ghostly sleuth's delightful debut. In Aunt Dimity's Death, Aunt Dimity's American niece, Lori Shepherd, had long thought her mother's childhood tales of Aunt Dimity were merely comforting bedtime stories. But when a pair of lawyers informs her that her mysterious aunt has just died and made the down-on-her-luck Lori a rich woman, she finds a reason to believe. Aunt Dimity and the Duke finds the benevolent spirit helping Emma Porter-forty, fat, and frumpy-tame a Duke's overgrown garden and discover romance along the way. These two tales continue to enchant Atherton's devoted fans and, packaged together, are sure to attract even more new readers to the series.

    Okay, but wouldn't buy at again.

    It was okay. It is a light romance novel. Held my interest enough to finish the book, but I was bored with it by the end. Main character slightly annoying. "Paranormal" part really wasn't much. Aunt Dimity is all but non-existent in the second half. If you want something light, that you can pick up to fill time between "good" books, and something you can finish or not finish, then this would fit the bill.

    Can't wait to read more of the series

    I don't know why I originally picked this up, but I'm so glad I did. There were 2 stories in this volume, and both were wonderful. I hate to admit it, but I actually cried reading the first one. During the second, Aunt Dimity isn't as prevalent, but she is present. I was rooting for the heroine to the point I had to make sure I was alone while reading.

    There are mysteries to both stories, but not in the traditional sense. I'm addicted to Medieval murder mysteries, this is nothing like those. The stories were touching and fascinating. The author managed to grab me with both stories, before I even realized it. I don't want to give any of it away - you should read it and experience it for yourself.

    A great read for traveling - with airport delays, etc. - I read the first story on the first leg of my trip, and the second on the way back. It is quick, easy reading, but still interesting and entertaining.

    I had promised myself I would save money this year and get books from the library. I'll be buying more of this series. I highly recommend this book and I want an Aunt Dimity of my own.
