Publisher Description

Cozy mystery lovers’ favorite paranormal sleuth is back with her twentieth otherworldly adventure

It’s June, the roses are in bloom, and the small English village of Finch may be in big trouble. Two cottages are for sale, but something—or someone—is driving buyers away. Has a developer targeted Finch? Will property values skyrocket? Will a wave of wealthy weekenders drive out the longtime locals?

Lori Shepherd has a lot on her plate—a brand-new baby daughter, her father-in-law’s impending nuptials, and a visit from her dreaded aunts-in-law—but she refuses to stand back and watch while big money destroys her beloved village. Lori suspects that a local real estate agent is illicitly lining her pockets at Finch’s expense, but before she can prove it, she’s sidetracked by a chance encounter with an eccentric inventor. Arthur Hargreaves, dubbed the Summer King by his quirky family, is as warmhearted as the summer sun. In his presence, Lori forgets her troubles—and Finch’s. Lori snaps out of her happy trance when a series of unsettling discoveries shakes her faith in Arthur Hargreaves. She stumbles across a detailed map of Finch in Hillfont Abbey. An ancient feud between Finch and the Hargreaves family comes to light. Arthur appears to be making secret deals with the shady realtor. Is the Summer King as kind as he seems?

With Aunt Dimity’s otherworldly help—and her new baby girl in her arms—Lori mounts a crusade to save her village from the Summer King’s scorching greed.

Look out for Aunt Dimity and the Buried Treasure, the next in the series, coming from Viking on May 24, 2016.

Enchanting

This is my second Aunt Dimity book. I can’t wait to continue reading the stories. This one is as wonderful as the first one I read that happened to be when Lori discovered Aunt Dimity. Thankful that my journey appears to be starting off in order. It is now the middle of the night for me as I couldn’t put the book down. I’m smiling and thinking maybe I’ll even try to make the pinwheel cookies for Christmas this year.

A sweet saga ...

that’s a charm-filled antidote to today’s drabness.

Hey Suzy ,

Great story!

I love Nancy Atherton's Aunt Dimity's books. They are so well written, enjoyable and they make you feel like you are part of the story. You seem like a Finch villager. Thank you for all these great stories. I can't hardly wait for the next book!
