    Nancy Atherton's growing number of fans will certainly be delighted by Aunt Dimity's latest appearance in the honey-colored English cottage she bequeathed to her "niece", Lori Shepherd. Thanks to Aunt Dimity, Lori's life has taken on fairy-tale proportions: She's financially set for life and happily married...or so she thinks. When Lori's plans for a second honeymoon to England with her workaholic husband fall through, she begrudgingly takes along her father-in-law who promptly disappears, leaving behind a mysterious note.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Aunt Dimity's Good Deed to be better than the print version?

    I enjoy having the story read to me; so I would have to say the audio edition is slightly better than the print version


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nell Harris hands down. I like Nell because she is such a curious mixture of wisdom and childlike wonder.


    What aspect of Teri Clark Linden’s performance would you have changed?

    Teri's performance improves with each book. Her performances would be better if she would read at a more natural pace and not put so much emphasis on enunciation.


    If you could take any character from Aunt Dimity's Good Deed out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Lori because I think I would be comfortable with her.


    Any additional comments?

    I am thrilled that Audible is offering the Aunt Dimity series at long last. I love these books because they are full of light instead of darkness and the characters are, for the most part, ordinary folks that I can relate to and best of all, wrongs are righted. Please, please record all of the books in the series.

    It’s Christmastime, and the precocious Flavia de Luce—an eleven-year-old sleuth with a passion for chemistry and a penchant for crime-solving—is tucked away in her laboratory, whipping up a concoction to ensnare Saint Nick. But she is soon distracted when a film crew arrives at Buckshaw, the de Luces’ decaying English estate, to shoot a movie starring the famed Phyllis Wyvern.

    Would you listen to I Am Half-Sick of Shadows again? Why?

    Flavia is fresh voice amongst all the jaded detectives out there. She's a wonderful mixture of cleverness and naivete. I am looking forward to next Flavia story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Flavia, of course. She's a breath of fresh air.
