Atherton returns to the original characters of the Aunt Dimity story, Lori and Bill (and Aunt Dimity's journal), in Aunt Dimity's Good Deed. In this story, Lori must figure out why William Willis Sr has left the cottage in such a hurry. She and young Nell set off on an adventure trying to track down William Sr. and unravelling the mysteries of the Willis family tree at the same time. A very enjoyable read!
A charming, warm mystery with characters that the reader can care about. Has eccentric characters and a hint of the supernatural.
I really liked this one....vert well written...keeps you jumping.
Each one of this series delights me more :)
Lori's second honeymoon isn't going well - husband Bill had to stay behind in Boston to deal with a client. So, here she is in England with her father-in-law instead of her beloved. But then he takes off on a quest of a 300 year old mystery involving the quarrel between his ancestors, 2 brothers, one of whom left England for America in disgrace. Not only is Lori worried, but so is Aunt Dimity.
In this story, Nell is almost a teenager, but a very self-possessed and elegant teen. She begs to join Lori in the search for Lori's father-in-law. Their travels send them all over the English countryside, meeting some interesting and strange relatives. Even the elusive Aunt Dimity seems puzzled.
Both followers of the series and those new to it will enjoy Lori and Nell's adventures.
