Atherton continues her delightfully quirky Aunt Dimity series in fine style as a poison pen infiltrates a house party at the country estate of a British earl. When her best friend learns that her husband is heir to both an earldom and a fortune, Lori Shepard agrees to accompany a decidedly nervous Emma Harris to Hailesham Park to meet her in-laws. Of course, Lori enlists the help of her "Aunt Dimity," a blithe spirit who reveals her thoughts and opinions to Lori via the seemingly blank pages of a treasured journal. When one of the guests begins receiving threatening letters, it is up to the irrepressible Lori and her phantom sidekick to unravel a tangled family history in order to expose a twisted motive for mayhem. Chock-full of stiff upper lips and skeletons in the closet, this charming trifle will appeal to fans of cozy little mysteries. Margaret Flanagan

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.
