Format: Hardcover
When her friend persuades her to break her post-Christmas funk with a hike, Lori Shepherd figures on a pleasant five hours walking through the beautiful English countryside, possibly watching lambs gamboling (whatever that is). But when she takes a wrong turn and England is hit by the blizzard of the century, Lori finds herself snowbound in a strange house--deserted except for an ancient caretaker with a shotgun, and two fellow Americans, similarly caught by the unexpected snowfall. Those, along with her stuffed rabbit and the notebook that contains the spirit of Lori's Aunt Dimity.
The odds of three Americans being caught by snow in one small building don't seem high and Lori is suspicious. She gets even more suspicious when Catchpole, the caretaker, tells the tragic story of the late owner of the building--and her hatred for anything American. Following Aunt Dimity's advice, Lori starts a treasure hunt for whatever the building's owner supposedly lost--or had stolen. But Lori isn't the only person hunting and her suspicions quickly turn to Wendy--the American backpacker who just happens to have a crowbar in her pack.
Author Nancy Atherton serves up a fun light mystery. The ghostly Aunt Dimity serves up hints for both Lori and the reader but Lori uses her own common sense and judgment as well. Wendy and Jamie, along with Catchpole are interesting and well developed characters. Lori has an unfortunate habit of being terribly attracted to one of the suspects in each of the Dimity mysteries and this is no exception. Jamie turns out to be exactly the tall handsome and intelligent types that get Lori going--husband and children not-withstanding. In this book, Lori's little weakness (which she womanfully suppresses) adds rather than detracting from the narrative.
Fans of light English-set cozies will definitely want to grab this one.

Format: Hardcover
Being the mother of four year old terror twins, the holidays wore out Lori Shepherd, who looks forward to the post Yuletide blues with elation. Needing time alone, Lori takes a solo hike in the nearby woods on a warm winter's day. Suddenly out of nowhere the weather changes and an underdressed Lori is caught in a blizzard with no chance of getting home. She finds shelter at Ladythorne Abbey, residence of the recently deceased maniac Lucasta DeClerke.
At the Abbey, Lori is un-welcomed by the eerie caretaker, but also meets stranded American backpackers Jamie Macrae and Wendy Walker. It appears to Lori that Wendy plans to steal a valuable heirloom from their refuge. She also wonders about the agenda of the charming Jamie. However, it is the caretaker that truly frightens her. With spectral Aunt Dimity at her side, Lori tries to uncover the missing links that guiltily connect the threesome with the late Lucasta.
The key to the Aunt Dimity supernatural cozies is the cast, not only the title character and her niece, but in SNOWBOUND, the four other players (including Lucasta). The mystery is a bit soft, but fans of the series will enjoy it anyway as Lori guided by Aunt Dimity finds her sanctuary not feeling safe as she is wary of the caretaker, concerned with a possible theft, and warding off a seducer. This is the usual fun tale in which the audience not only believes that Aunt Dimity exists, but would want their own Aunt Dimity to advice and guide when the snowball picks up momentum into an avalanche.

I love the Aunt Dimity books. They are one of the most charming and delightful series that I have read. The humor that is infused into each book is unlike any other writer. Nancy Atherton has a way of merging mystery and fantasy; mayhem and small English village from another time. Stuffed childhood toys with a will of their own seem perfectly part of one's life. Is this Dan Brown? No. But to me it's like reading an old friend.
