I checked this out from the library and read it in 2 days. Overall, it was okay. I've read all the other Aunt Dimity books in this series and I must admit I think this one was the weakest of the bunch. I really like this series and I was looking forward to this book for a year; however, it just didn't have the same uniqueness that the other books have. This story does involve the Pym sisters (the twins who always finish each others sentences) and it does mention Kit and Nell's wedding (don't want to give away too much!) and although I am glad I read it, I am also glad that I didn't pay the hardcover price for it. 3 stars.
Nancy does it again. This time an underlying theme of remembering to appreciate things before it's too late. A less mystifying adventure, but Aunt Dimity knows her geography! Adds interest to see some color beside Finch. Travel to New Zealand to find a person/family that knows nothing about Finch is a new experience for Lori and Reginald.
