Aunt Dimity and the Lost Prince (Aunt Dimity Series #18) by Nancy Atherton

On the heels of two bestsellers, everyone’s favorite paranormal detective embarks on her eighteenth cozy adventure. Watch out for Nancy Atherton's latest, Aunt Dimity and the Widow's Curse, coming in May 2017 from Viking!

It’s a cold, dreary February in the sleepy village of Finch and Lori Shepherd has two stir-crazy kids on her hands. So she leaps at the chance to visit Skeaping Manor, a bizarre Jacobean-house-turned-museum. There she meets Daisy Pickering, a sweet, but strange little girl from a poor family who spins a wild tale about the Russian aristocrats who once owned the priceless silver pieces on display. A few days later, Daisy’s shabby pink parka turns up at Lori’s thrift shop—with a silver sleigh figurine in the pocket. Lori tries to track down the Pickering family, only to find that they’ve disappeared without a trace.

A delightful whodunit stretching back to the Russian Revolution, Aunt Dimity and the Lost Prince will beguile new and longtime fans.

They are meant to be read snuggled up in a big comfy chair with a warm crackling fire in front of you. Not to mean they are banal or un-thought-provoking. Just the opposite. I love knowing these people and their clever minds.

I never tire of reading an Aunt Diminty mystery. They are truly cosey mysteries and very entertaining. The Lost Prince is no exception. The stories are filled with interesting and various characters. The endings are always surprising.

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.

An interesting mystery being solved with the help of a friend and the ghost of Mum's best friend. Communication with Aunt Dimity is via a journal of sorts with everything being done in handwriting. Nothing gory except Russian history, and no gratuitous erotica, just a pleasant read and inadvertent learning opportunity. See publisher's blurb for clues to plot, no spoilers here.

I adore this series. The characters are delightful and the descriptions of the settings are wonderful. I think the minor flaws of Lori make her lovable, and this time we are able to see Daisy look to Lori for advice. The Lost Prince shows the lives of several people ands how what we see on the surface may not be the truth. I love the small little lessons learned and the kindness that is woven through the story.
