On a dark and stormy night in late October, she sets out for Wyrdhurst Hall, the grim neo-Gothic castle owned by newlyweds Nicole and Jared Hollander. On the way there she encounters Adam Chase, a charming, handsome stranger who knows more than he's telling about the hall's mysterious secrets....

In Aunt Dimity Beats the Devil, Lori's twins are now toddlers, walking and talking enough to drive her nearly stir crazy. So she jumps at the offer of a break - a trip to evaluate a rare-book collection in a remote and misty corner of Northumberland. On a dark and stormy night in late October, she sets out for Wyrdhurst Hall, the grim neo-Gothic castle owned by newlyweds Nicole and Jared Hollander. On the way there she encounters Adam Chase, a charming, handsome stranger who knows more than he's telling about the hall's mysterious secrets. Lori falls under Wyrdhurst's spell - and Adam's - when she unearths a cache of World War I letters that tell a tale of doomed love and hint at a treasure hidden in the hall. It will take all of Dimity's supernatural skills to help Lori solve the puzzle and restore peace to a family haunted by its tragic past.

    "Where did they find this narrator?"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I had read the book, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thought I would listen to it on Audible while I baked. Good heavens!! If this was my first introduction to these books, and went by the narrated version, I never would have read another. Truly awful, stilted, almost embarrassing . I have heard many amateur narrators do a MUCH better job. This person utterly fails to capture the vivacious character of Lori. Save your money, or credit!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Teri Clark Linden?

    Almost anyone... Someone with a relaxed narration style who uses expression and 'gets' the character they are representing, ESP. First person narration!

    "Dreadful narration"

    I thought this looked like a good yarn, light reading to listen to while I work. However, after a few minutes into the first chapter I abandoned this book. Dreadful narration, which was stilted and the regional accents truly awful. I just couldn't bear to listen for more than a few minutes. I only gave one star for the story because the narration prevented me from hearing it.Waste of a credit!
