The "irresistible flair and charm" (Publishers Weekly) of Nancy Atherton's lovable heroine and her phantom aunt intensify with each new adventure. This time, in Aunt Dimity: Detective, murder comes to roost in Lori Shepard's own village.

Nobody in the little town of Finch was really surprised when Prunella "Pruneface" Hooper came to a nasty end -- but murder? There hadn't been a murder in Finch since 1872 when one shepherd bashed another with the hook of his crook. Despite her hectic home schedule with her three-year-old twins, Lori agrees to investigate. But narrowing the list of suspects is a major challenge: the newly arrived Pruneface had quickly become privy to everyone's secrets -- and used her secret knowledge to plant rumors, nurture backbiting, resurrect feuds, and season it all with downright lies. Almost everyone had a reason to want her dead. Fortunately, Aunt Dimity's supernatural skills -- and her insight into uncovering the true goodness of human nature -- make the experience of unraveling the mystery "as cozy as a warm fire on a winter's night" (The Denver Post).
