While exploring the attic in her cottage near the small English village of Finch, Lori Shepherd makes an extraordinary discovery: a gold and silver bracelet inlaid with gleaming garnets, which she quickly learns belonged to Aunt Dimity. When Lori brings news of the garnet bracelet to Aunt Dimity, it awakens poignant memories of a doomed romance in Aunt Dimity's past. Regretfully, Aunt Dimity asks Lori to do what she could not bring herself to do - return the bracelet to her unsuccessful suitor or to his rightful heir.

I have all the Aunt Dimity books on Audible and today I feel all my Christmases have come at once! Thank God this one has a new narrator! (The one who did all the other books left a lot to be desired!) Nancy Atherton is a fabulous author and it's a crying shame that the previous 20 books in this marvellous series had to have Teri Clark Linden narrating them. The new narrator does a terrific job! Oh and the book itself is a top read! Just like all the previous ones. I think Aunt Dimity should be made a National Treasure. And so should her author!
Keep them coming Nancy Atherton - I love your writing!
Everything - especially the wonderful narration.
She was splendid with all the characters!
Aunt Dimity and author Nancy Atherton should be registered as national treasures!
A wonderful read in this great series. May there be many, many more with the same new narrator.
Thank you for getting a new narrator! I will probably listen to this book at least 3 times just to cleanse my ears of the last narrator!
What happen to the treasure. I have a passion for archeology and history and to leave anything to rot in the ground that could add to humanity knowledge of itself because it might put you out, makes me angry. If this had been the first book of Aunt Dimity I mostly would have never pick up another one. Thank goodness it wasn't.
Yes, because I loved all the ones before this.
Any of the scenes with the baby.
Kind off. Characters that I've enjoyed from the beginning are there but the ending was so disappointing that I wouldn't be looking forward to the next book as much as I did in the past.
I know that the author has the right to do anything she wants with her creation but I expected more respect for art and history from this author then she showed in this book. I was very disappointed.
I haven't had the pleasure of reading this story in print because I was so excited to have Christina Moore reading Aunt Dimity's latest adventure!
I think it was Lori's big decision near the end of the book...which I can't discuss due to spoilers. The other aspect I liked very much was the tour of the very special part of London one gets throughout the story. It was a treasure hunt into history. Nancy Atherton always draws such amazing characters, it is easy to get caught up in their big adventures as well as the simple adventures experienced in their daily lives.
I loved Christina's performance in the two previous recordings she made of Aunt Dimity Beats the Devil and Aunt Dimity's Death. I actually bought this Audiobook from another company so I could listen to it as soon as it came out. I only bought this copy from Audible so I could write this positive review and encourage them to re-record the series with Christina so I can buy the whole collection!
I enjoyed the meeting with Badger hearing his story. So different, but reminiscent, of the outcome of the search in the first Aunt Dimity story.
I can't wait for Lori's next adventure!
