Publisher's Summary

Penguin's popular Aunt Dimity series returns and "loyal fans will be thrilled by every new revelation." (Kirkus Reviews)

Everyone's favorite paranormal detective is back in Nancy Atherton's 13th Aunt Dimity mystery - but this time Lori's supernatural confidante may not be the only one who's not quite dead. Could the cloaked figure Lori's twins saw in the woods near the family's English country cottage really have been a vampire?

Atherton's ever-growing legion of fans and all fans of cozy mysteries will find themselves curling up with a nice cup of garlic- er, tea - for the most spine-tingling Aunt Dimity mystery yet.

Don't bother

Unless you enjoy stilted pronunciation. This recording was too painful to listen to. I wish I could return it. Even Data on Star Trek (an android) spoke more fluently than this frustrating reader. So sad.

Fun story, narrator is a difficult listen

Set your listen speed at 1.5 and you'll have an easier time listening to this book. The narrator enunciates every vowel and consonant to perfection. This is all well and good unless it sounds as if she's a computer who can do accents. The long a's and slow speed are pretty distracting. I hope she doesn't talk like this in real life!

The story is fun. I like Nancy Atherton's tales. They're light when you're not in the mood for heavy drama. Aunt Dimity is a spirit who's advice is worldly rather than cosmic, but it's a fun idea of a secret friend.
