Review quote

Praise for Nancy Atherton and the Aunt Dimity series "Atherton smoothly blends history, village life, and the otherworldly."--Publishers Weekly "Every scene is superbly crafted to perfection. Even if you have not read all the books in this series, I have not, you can enjoy and immerse yourself in this cozy mystery." --Open Book Society "I love the graceful style... the sense of tight-knit community, characters who aren't afraid to be themselves, and, the unique paranormal element...I only wish I had learned about this series earlier." --Gotta Write Network "In the realm of the cozy mystery, there are few series that can hold a candle to Atherton's Aunt Dimity series." --everydayebook.com "Atherton is a superb writer who brings a lot of charm and wit to her story." --Suspense Magazine "Always a charming read, the Aunt Dimity series is just right for when life gets too hectic and you need to slow down a bit." --Deadly Pleasures Magazine "Let Nancy Atherton and Aunt Dimity remind you of the reason you got hooked on books in the first place. I promise you will be scouring bookstores for more of the series after you give it a taste." --CrimeCritics.com
