Read in November, 2010

I had seen some of the more recent Aunt Dimity titles at my local bookstore, but just didn't want to start in the middle of an established series (channeling my inner Monk?). Lori (the main character) is prickly and at times I found her to be annoying. That said, the story is a study of Lori's growth as a person as she struggles to complete a task set by a woman she hadn't even known existed until after her mother's death. As she reads her mother's correspondence with this mysterious aunt, Lori comes to better know her mother and herself. Wonderful for anyone who had favorite "made up" stories as a child (you know, those stories a mom or someone made up on the spot to tell you at bedtime?) or anyone who likes a little bit of ghost activity along with their cozy cottages, mysterious benefactors & tea with brown bread. Sweet, quick read.
