It aun a leap to consider we influence other people. The best stuff, anyway. This is a good solid cozy type mystery that is not syrupy or formulaic.
Aunt Dimity and the Duke by Nancy Atherton – FictionDB
This is more a romance than anything else. While the story was fun to read, not enough time is spent fleshing out the characters – so much contradiction.
Nancy Atherton is not a white-haired Englishwoman with a softly wrinkled face, a wry smile, and wise gray eyes, nor does she live in a thatched cottage behind a babbling brook in a tranquil, rural corner of the Cotswolds. I was over halfway into the book when I realized this story took place before the first book and that Aunt Dimity was still alive.
Aunt Dimity and the Duke by Nancy Atherton
Emma Porter is forty, fat, frumpy, and a passionate amateur gardener. The other narrator has a very strange style. There was little tension and rarely any wonder at the mystery.
What Readers Are Saying What do you think? She’s the best of the best and her books are unforgettable. This book tells the back story for series lead, Lori Shepherd’s best friends and how they became a couple.
Oh,your requirement that I suspend my disbelief to about the height of a high wire was worth it.
Dec 10, Sue rated it really liked it Shelves: In all there wasn’t all that much mystery, and far more half-baked and rather chaste romance. Aunt Dimity is a nice light read with a touch of magic stirred in. An extremely clever and intricate Aunt Dimity mystery.
Aunt Dimity And the Duke
She’s barely alive – and though Emma herself has wished Ashers to vaporize at times, someone else clearly had something more permanent in mind.
I am so glad there are more Aunt Dimity books to be read. But sometimes I was side-eyeing them. Notify me of new comments via email. Home About Contact Us. I still think that people who predominantly or only read the more hard-core mysteries might find this a little too fluffy for their reading purposes, but for the most part most readers will enjoy this. The characters are well drawn and I like most of them.
Be the first to discover new talent! But she finds two little old ladies who are twins and anc each others sentences. Paperbackpages. Emma does appear in later stories, but only as a minor character.
I am so happy there is a nice, long list of books in this series.

Sometimes it’s good to have something that is outside the norm.
There are some passages which brought me out of the story because of its dated times. Thirty year-old Lori was financially low and her mother had died. Also by Nancy Atherton. There’s the potential for them to come back in a further book, but ultimately we have a new idmity to focus on. Even if you have not read all the books in this series, I have not, you can enjoy dmiity immerse yourself in this cozy mystery.
Also, I am not sure that Nancy Atherton can write children, at least not consistently. I love this whole series, but I cannot recommend the audiobooks unless you can find the three narrated by Christina Moore.
