Another great Hoag book. Characters who are familiar in a different scene. Adds a new level to the excitement of New Year's Eve! Enjoy!

As Aunt Dimity story lines go, this one has a bit more intrigue and suspense. Some reappearances from previous adventures. Great location at a castle on an island with limited access. Another great read!

Another winner in this series! Was curious how William Sr. would like Finch and fit into the pace after living in New England, but it's clear that he cherishes the new environment and has already determined how to blend. The new characters add more opportunity for new adventures. Love the discoveries and the intrigue of "moving furniture, objects d'art, and sounds" in the renovated estate. Ready for the next misadventure.

Trying to find the relative of a deceased person doesn't sound like a real problem, but once again Aunt dimity gives Lori the encouragement to do whatever it takes and it really does take some doing!

Most enjoyable read!

Another sequel in Nancy's bag. This one was good enough for a quick read and I love that there are so many possibilities without making you stay up all night to find out whoooo did it!

This was another delightful story with Aunt Dimity. While I would like to read them in order, they don't seem to rely heavily on previous story lines like a continuous or serial set.

I enjoy Aunt Dimity as a light, but intriguing mystery series and this one has a different twist.

If you want psychological or serious thrillers, this one isn't for you, but if you like a "Miss Marple" or other Agatha Christie type story - this is one for you!

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.

Being the first in a series, I found it delightful and am looking forward to reading more.

The characters are interesting and while the book is not a high suspense or psycho thriller, it held my interest and was an enjoyable read.

In yet another of Lori's adventures, I found a great story, not too intense, but enough of a twist to keep me interested. Enjoy learning more about UK.

In yet another situation, Kate comes thru by recognizing there is always more to see than the obvious. The characters of the Amish come thru even more as reserved and protective, if not a bit naive to what can and is happening. Most intriguing read!

An edge of your seat read. Find yourself picking different persons of interest and potential for the killer, but if those "living" the situation can't figure the perp, can you...

A cleverly written cozy mystery, this story was a delight. From the discovery of thebody, through the twisty turns of potential suspects, matchmaking, the characters were interesting and lightly spellbinding. Enough intrigue without terror. Recommended rea!ing for this winter season next to a warm fire with a cocoa or tea!

Wow!The characters that had grown on me in riding lessons became even more alive. I would not have guessed the trials or outcome of this book. Annemarie, Dan, Eva and Mutti grow emotionally and support each other. It is a great read.

I love Heather's approach. She gives enough info about her main characters for you to "know" them and for you to look hard at the ones that you'd like to trust or know. This one continued to keep me interested throughout. Harrison Investigations team is definitely one to call for paranormal assistance!

All the creepy feelings you've ever had or heard about seem to be the basis for some of the "happenings" here. It is another of Heather's good adventures.
