Book Review of Aunt Dimity's Christmas (Aunt Dimity, Bk 5)

I adore the Aunt Dimity books. They're unlike anything else I've ever read. They're heartwarming, cozy in the best sense of the word, uplifting, and fun. That said, I had a bit of trouble with this one. Most of the story is logical, well crafted, and fun to read. I had trouble, however, with Lori's total infatuation and belief in this homeless guy after spending maybe a minute total looking into his eyes as he is semi-conscious in the hospital. From that brief exposure, she KNOWS he's a great person, could not possibly have ever done anything wrong (even when there's evidence), and must be defended and believed in at all costs.


Nevertheless, allow the author the luxury of this unlikely event, and the rest follows as the night the day. I'll give it a month, then dig in to the next book in the Dimity series. (No pun intended.)
