Format: Mass Market Paperback
Nancy Atherton débuted in 1993 and the beauty of used books is, I recently discovered the unusual "Aunt Dimity's Death". I've fallen in love with Nancy's originality, impeccable writing, and series that resembles nothing else! Thirty year-old Lori was financially poor and her mother had died. When a lawyer's letter came about a Dimity Woodcock's death, she was astonished that fairytales she grew up with, were about her mother's real friend in wartime England. Assisted by the lawyer's son Bill, there's a mission to fulfill at Dimity's cottage. Wonderful neighbours in Finch, warn that it is haunted.

Books undercut with the claim "It wasn't what I thought". One should base reviews on whatever a title turned out to be! In novel #2 "Aunt Dimity And The Duke", we're shown a cast elsewhere in England, which must take place about 8 years earlier, while Dimity Woodcock is alive. She is scarcely incorporated except as a caring figure who knew duke Grayson's Grandma. The sole familiar figures are the Pym sisters but you're drawn into such an ingenious concept with superb characterization; you dig right in. It isn't a leap to consider we influence other people. Not since David Eddings have I seen another author unfurl an offbeat story so well.

American computer analyst, Emma is free of a stagnant, heavy metal boyfriend and tours England. At Penford Hall where a disreputable musician died, she's hired to restore the garden of Grayson's Grandma in time for a festival. A myth is supposed to re-materialize at 100-year intervals. Englishman Derek is hired to locate the legend's artifact. If I'm correct, it occurred to me early on that Emma & Derek become Lori's neighbours in Finch! This author isn't conjuring angles willy nilly. She's the best of the best and her books are unforgettable.

Nancy Atherton does not center this book around her usual title character, Lori Shepherd - but rather around her English neighbors and best friends. It is a delightful sideroad to travel down.
The entire series is simply delightful and a great read.

I read all the Aunt Dimity books. This one was a little slower in the beginning, but once your in, it's a good read. I liked that the main character wasn't Lori Shepard, but rather focuses on her best friend. It helped bring her character to life in the other books. I reccommend reading the whole series.

If you aren't acquainted with Aunt Dimity, you have a wonderful experience in store for you. Do it now! Don't read the synopsis...just buy the books...all of them...then read and enjoy. They are delightfully unexpected. Both the men and the women in our family love them. We feel that the less you know about them before you read them the better. We only wish there were more of them.

Love the series. Aunt Dimity and the Duke is my favorite thus far. The descriptions of English gardens were breathtaking. Made me feel I was there and also made me want to return for another visit! Nancy makes the characters come to life and you can't help but fall in love with them. I'm anxious for her next book release.

Although this is the second book of the Dimity series I would recommend reading this one first as it is sort-of an off shoot from the character in the first book Lori - if you read Atherton's first book Aunt Dimity's Death first you sort-of loose some of the excitement of this book but it is still fabulous and fun.
Aunt Dimity and the Duke is set once again in the lush countryside of England. This time, as I said above - Aunt Dimity helps out Emma, who subsequently becomes Lori's best friend, (this book takes place before her first in the series)who takes a position gardening at a local mansion. There she meets Derek and helps to solve a mystery!
A wonderfully fun book.

The tone of voice Atherton uses is so cuddley and comforting that you feel like you are reading an old favorite childhood book. The writting is sweet and sentimental yet keeps an active pace. Totally a great read!
