I am in love with this series. Haven’t read one yet that I did not devour. I was unsure I’d enjoy this one, but once I got started, there was no turning back. It was great going on this journey with Emma, learning more about her, the new characters introduced, and getting reacquainted with characters from the other books. – Camilla
This is the book that launched the series. Very much enjoyed it, learning about the characters from the beginning, and traveling the journey as they unraveled the mystery. I could hardly stand to put it down at times. I’ve requested the next two from the library! –Camilla, Founder & Host of Meeting the Authors
Aunt Dimity & the Buried Treasure by Nancy Atherton
It was in the 90’s when I became nearly obsessed with reading every Agatha Christie book ever published. I’m pretty sure I reached that goal (perhaps minus 1 or 2 hard to find books) and ended the obsession with reading her autobiography.
This book drew me in with similar feelings I remember having about Christie’s books … minus the always present mysterious deaths/murders. After I began reading the book, I realized that it was a part of the “Aunt Dimity Series”. I thought, oh no, if I like this, I will just have to read all of them!! Hahaha! Hopefully, I won’t like it.
Well, I did like the book, loved it, and deeply enjoyed it. I find I love traveling a journey of discovery, locating clues, putting them together, and ultimately finding what one set out to find. I just prefer that the mysteries don’t have to do with murder or mysterious deaths.
This did notdisappoint as the main character, Lori, discovers an extravagant jeweled bracelet in the attic. This is the spark that lights the way for unravelling the truth behind the bracelet. Love, love, loved it!
