Aunt Dimity & the Family Tree by Nancy Atherton, 229 pages, read by Tracy, on 05/12/2012

Nancy Atherton’s Aunt Dimity mysteries just keeps getting better. Based in the little village of Finch in England the local people are just what you would expect in a cozy mystery. Not much gets by them. Lori Shepard inherited Aunt Dimity’s cottage and lives there with her husband and twin boys. Whenever something mysterious happens Lori converses with Aunt Dimity in a blue journal because she is a ghost. In this episode Lori’s wealthy father in law buys a country estate that needs fixing up. He is a widow so the local women are anxious to help out in any way. He hires a young married couple to do housekeeping and grounds work but they seem too good to be true. It’s a fun read but if you are interested in the series I suggest reading Aunt Dimity’s Death first.
