An enjoyable mixture of mystery and romance. Stick with this one. Though there are different characters than the first Aunt Dimity book, the story is important to the rest of the series.
This was a really cute cozy mystery. It is the second book in the Aunt Dimity series, but since it was recommended that I read it first, I did. Aunt Dimity's character is not really explored much in this book, but that's okay. That characters are a lot of fun, and I loved the setting (fictional Penford Hall in England). The book was very lighthearted and entertaining. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
I love this series. Probably the best cozy mystery series I have ever read. This is the second book in the series but the first book chronologically in the storyline.
An early Aunt Dimity, a little different than the others as she does not play a constant role but merely sets the stage.
Emma, a fat, forty, frumpy, recently jilted American amateur gardener is in England on a gardening vacation when she meets 2 elderly women who insist she visit a particular not very well known garden.
A gentle and magical read!
The prequel to the series of Aunt Dimity books. Should be read first if possible-but any time makes the series more fun.
