I like this series of books. They are short and sweet and you know in the end everything is going to work out great for all the characters. No one is going to be hurt and everyone will end up standing around holding hands and humming. But, isn't that why we read these books? The past couple of books I thought that the character Aunt Dimity was taking a back seat but finally the author decided to bring her out again and let her speak. That was nice. I recommend this book if you are looking for something that is a quick easy read. This book will give you pleasure from cover to cover.
What a delightful book. I thoroughly enjoyed this. I can't believe there have been 16 books in the series already. I want more...... and more and more. I can't get enough of these characters. Now I have to wait probably another year for another Aunt dimity fix. I love her.
