    One thought on “Introducing Aunt Dimity, Paranormal Detective: The First Two Books in the Beloved Series”

    1. This is a two-fer, the first two stories in Nancy Atherton's series of Aunt Dimity books. Definitely hooked me into the rest of the series which I did like, however, think the first two are the best (so far).

    2. Where have these books been all my life? They have all the stuff I love, Britishiness! Mystery! And a little romance as well. Just a fun read.

    3. I’ve already written a review elsewhere for the first of the two novels included in Aunt Dimity, Paranormal Detective. I began rereading that book, Aunt Dimity's Death, with the Audible Audio Edition. However, the reader, Teri Clark Linden, was so incredibly stilted and robotic that I finished off that novel through the paperback format of Introducing Aunt Dimity, Paranormal Detective. In short, Aunt Dimity’s Death is an utter delight, and a great introduction to the more than one dozen book [...]

    4. A light read but very endearing with a sweet British charm. The characters were all slightly eccentric and came to life in my head. I'm in the middle of a crazy chaotic time in my life right now and anything heavy would go in one eye and out the other. So I'm cartainly happy that this book has about 20 volumes in it's series. Very light, completely unbelievable (Dimity is a ghost and can conveniently write notes at times) but easy, fun and wonderful characters. 4 stars for being able to keep my [...]

    5. Aunt Dimity's DeathDate I read this book: May 14th, 2012★★Um I don't know how this is a mystery it was more in the vein of "The Forgotten Garden" full review to come.Aunt Dimity has died. Lori Shepherd never knew that Aunt Dimity was real. She always assumed that she was a fictional character her mother made up for Lori's bedtime stories. Lori has been struggling since her mother's death, and now this news has rather rattled her. She shows up at the home of the lawyers Dimity has hired, Will [...]

    6. Normally when you put a character's name in the title it involves them doing something. But this edition is a complete fop. Aunt Dimity is dead and she can't cross over. She knows what's holding her back, but she doesn't want help. (So why bother to announce yourself?!) The cast of characters are well written if sometimes a bit trite. You can see where the first book ends coming a mile away, and yet there's more. The second book is a bit more like a detective story, but it's unclear where it fal [...]

    7. Grandma recommended this series as fun, light reading. A bit of a mystery but not with violence or sex. I would say it lived up to that, very harmless stuff really. I liked the first book better than the second book. Nice to read something fluffy that isn't strictly about a romance.

    8. Bought this on recommendation, and thought for a while that I'd found a did. However, after a couple more chapters it started to grow on me and by the time I started Aunt Dimity and the Duke I was hooked ;-DWill definitely be checking out more titles from this series.

    9. *I read this version with the first two books together, but I also reviewed them seperately. Here are my reviews:I thought this book was delightful, fun, and unique. It begins with Lori, a 30 something woman whose mother has died, and she is trying to cope with failures and sorrow at every turn. That is until she gets a message to meet with a Mr Willis at a law firm and discovers that the stories her mother had told her as a child were about a real woman. A real woman who has left her with a spe [...]

    10. This books collects the first two Dimity stories. The first story is charming, fairytale-like and pure 100% fluff. I don't mean this in a bad way, only to say that if feel-good fluff is not your cup of tea, than this is not the book for you. And when I say tea, I mean pots full of strong English village tea filled with lemon bars and quirky, charming characters.What I liked best about the first story was a thread about a lifetime of letter-writing between two friends during and following WWII. T [...]

    11. I enjoyed these books very much. They are light reading with charming characters and that is what I like about them. These are people I would like to know. These are not great books that are going to ask deep questions and cause you to think deep thoughts and that's why I like them. I save them for when I need a vacation from deep questions and thoughts. I look forward to each book being published as I look forward to a quick lunch with an old friend to catch up on our lives. These are gentle bo [...]

    12. Introducing Aunt Dimity, Paranormal Detective is really 2 books, the 1st 2 in a series. In Aunt Dimity's Death, the 1st book, Aunt Dimity's American niece, Lori Shepherd, had long thought her mother's childhood tales of Aunt Dimity were merely comforting bedtime stories. But when a pair of lawyers informs her that her mysterious aunt has just died and made the down-on-her-luck Lori a rich woman, she finds a reason to believe. Not your typical detective story, a bit predictible, but a very pleasa [...]

    13. Very fun! I went to the bookstore trying to find copies of the Mrs. Pollifax novels to buy as a gift (but apparently they are no longer printed). This was suggested to me as an alternate and I had to buy the book for myself. I couldn't conceive of giving a book to someone that I hadn't read myself and boy am I glad I did, read it myself that is. Aunt Dimity sounds like a fun lady to meet, and her version of paranormal is one I can really get behind (it is the special kind that makes sure you don [...]

    14. Finished the first novel in this double-novel book, Aunt Dimity's Death. I'll save the second, Aunt Dimity and the Duke for a little while; I'm almost finished with Her Fearful Symmetry and TWO ghosts communicating by writing are one too many to be reading about at the same time!

    15. This volume contains the first two books in the Aunt Dimity mystery series. These are cozy British mysteries with an American heroine. The paranormal activity is very tame -- no blood, guts, or gore involved. Lovely descriptions of the English countryside, quirky characters, and honest charm. I'm hooked on this series now!

    16. The first two of Aunt Dimity's mysteries are in this one book--a great way to get a taste for the English countryside cozy mysteries sprinkled with a bit of the paranormal. Love these mysteries--perfect for a vacation or just to tuck into your bag during the week. Not too much of a mystery, no blood or gore--but great characters!

    17. A little twee even for me and I read Georgette Heyer. This is the perfect book for when you're sick at home with tea and a box of tissues for company and you just don't want to work hard for your mystery/romance.

    18. I just loved this book, I love the way Aunt Dimity gets kinda match maker like, but there's always a mystery. This book had the first two books in the series in it and I just absolutely loved the first one and the second one I kept on wondering who the main character was going to end up with. :)

    19. These mysteries are gentle. They are set in England in the present. Aunt Dimity seems to have a knack for solving mysteries that pop up in her vicinity, much like Agatha Christie's Miss Jane Marple. These stories are enjoyable and are good for bedtime reading.

    20. What a wonderful character - and she's not really even in the book! This book has the first two of the Aunt Dimity series; because of the clever writing and good characters, I bought number 3 and will be reading it shortly!

    21. I've finished the first of the two novels between late last night and today. Delightful and improbable. I enjoyed it a lot.

    22. Took me a while to get this read! Busy, busy July. It is 2 books in one, and is a lighthearted mystery with a friendly ghost around to help things move along as they should! Easy light reading.

    23. I just finished the first book, "Aunt Dimity's Death," and I like it. Easy, rewarding to read with just a touch of predictability, which isn't so bad sometimes.

    24. Light and fun. There were two stories, one a mostly-romatic mystery, and the other a mostly-mystery romance. It was the right fit for my mood at the time, too. Enjoyable but not really substantive.
