The wish fulfillment overflows in Atherton's series of very cozy cozies. American-born Lori, her attorney husband, Bill, and their adorable twin sons live near Finch, in a Cotswold cottage left her by her mother's friend, Dimity, who offers Lori advice from beyond in the form of ghost writing in a blue leather journal. When Lori and her family return from a three-month visit to the States, she finds the town atwitter over the death of Prunella "Pruneface" Hooper. Prunella sowed the seeds of discord at every turn, and Lori is intrigued enough --and upset enough by the ugliness directed at several of her closest friends--to try to solve the murder. She is aided in this by Nicholas, the charismatic nephew of the vicar, who has come to visit Finch for reasons of his own. Bill conveniently stays in London while Lori gets to the bottom of things, which include the local Wicca, the ninetysomething Pym sisters, an old heartbreak from World War II, and assorted characters from central casting, British charm division.

Aunt Dimity has given me many happy, peaceful hours. They are full of the "ahh " factor, or books that leave you with a smile on your face and in your heart. I normally avoid paranormal literature like the plague. It's just too ridiculous for me, but Aunt Dimity is entire fun and believable. I also love the characters that are so well portrayed. I would love to live in Finch!
Aunt Dimity's Death is not a perfect book. There is very little subtlety to it. Characters are a little on the exaggerated side. Parts of the story jump too quickly. But, I believe it is a great tale for curling up on a chilly afternoon and reminding yourself that sometimes things do work out all right - on a lot of levels.
