Read in August, 2007

I got this on CD from the library and really enjoyed it. It's about a young woman who learns that her late mother and the mysterious Aunt Dimity conspired to leave her a very unusual legacy. It's more a ghost story and romance than a mystery; sophisticated enough to hold my attention, but there was nothing in it I couldn't listen to when my 5-year-old was in the car (she liked it too!). The characters, settings, and situations were so charming that I wished I could just jump into the book and live there for a while.

I'm glad I listened to it rather than reading it, as it lasted longer that way. The reader did a wonderful job, and I kept finding excuses to drive so I would have reason to stay longer in the cozy little world she and Atherton created. I will probably buy the book to have on hand for "comfort reading", and look forward to reading or listening to the rest of the Aunt Dimity series.
