Aunt Dimity beats the Devil: Aunt Dimity Series, Book 6
"It's raining so hard and the wind is so fierce that Lori Shepherd can barely see through the windshield of her Range Rover. And as the car continues to climb up and up this treacherously steep embankment on the high moors of Northumberland, Lori is beginning to doubt the wisdom of her latest adventure: perhaps the mind-numbing effect of caring for her twin toddlers wasn't so bad after all?" "Lori is on her way to Wyrdhurst Hall, having jumped at the opportunity offered to her by Stan Finderman, her old boss, to evaluate a rare book collection. The collection is housed in the grim neo-Gothic castle owned by newlyweds Nicole and Jared Hollander. The hall, the books, and the journey to this remote and misty corner of Northumberland are full of surprises - some pleasant and some not so. Meeting Adam Chase, a charming, handsome stranger, is definitely a pleasant one - although Lori suspects he knows more than he's telling about the hall's mysterious secrets." "Lori falls under Wyrdhurst's spell - and Adam's - when she unearths a cache of World War I letters that tell a tale of doomed love and hint at a treasure hidden in the hall. It will take all of Dimity's supernatural skills to help Lori solve the puzzle and restore peace to a family haunted by its tragic past."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
