Nancy Atherton's seventeenth in the New York Times bestselling series sees the sleepy village of Finch set aflutter by a bewitching mystery from its past. Watch out for Nancy Atherton's latest, Aunt Dimity and the King's Ransom, coming in July 2018 from Viking!

Last year, the otherworldly sleuth's devoted fans secured a place on the New York Times bestseller list for Nancy Atherton's Aunt Dimity and the Family Tree. Now Lori and Aunt Dimity are back on the list--and this time, they're on a witch-hunt.

At first glance, the unassuming Mrs. Amelia Thistle is a disappointment to the villagers of Finch, but Lori Shepherd isn't fooled by the new arrival's bland persona. Amelia is a world-famous artist, traveling incognito, and, after unearthing a fragment of a family diary hinting that Mistress Meg, the Mad Witch of Finch, might be one of her ancestors, she's come to Finch in search of the truth.

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." "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."
