Publisher Description

The beloved Aunt Dimity returns in this delightful follow-up to the book that launched the Aunt Dimity series. Watch out for Nancy Atherton's latest, Aunt Dimity and the King's Ransom, coming in July 2018 from Viking!

Emma Porter is forty, fat, frumpy, and a passionate amateur gardener. When her longtime lover dumps her for a younger woman, Emma escapes the cloying sympathy of family and friends by setting out on a summer-long driving tour of England's glorious gardens. A Dimity-contrived coincidence brings her to Penford Hall, a sprawling Gothic mansion in Cornwall, where she finds a duke in search of a missing lantern with extraordinary powers. Suspecting there's more than one mystery to be solved at Penford Hall, Emma accepts the duke's invitation to stay on and restore the once glorious chapel garden to its former beauty. The dark rumors surrounding a rock star and the near-death of the duke's beautiful cousin confirm Emma's suspicions, and set her--with Aunt Dimity's ghostly guidance--on the path to Penford Hall's secrets and the pleasure of unexpected love.

Aunt Dimity and The Duke

Very entertaining. Amusing, well developed characters and the author's easy flowing style charm the reader on. However, this one ebook has more typographical errors than all the books I have read, combined, in my lifetime of avid reading! I was forced to wonder if the proofreader, if indeed there was one, actually read English. Whoever was responsible for overseeing the transfer of this work to an electronic format owes the author and the reader an apology! And a refund.

But where is Aunt Dimity's Death, first in the series?
