The "irresistible flair and charm" (Publishers Weekly) of Nancy Atherton's lovable heroine and her phantom aunt intensify with each new adventure. This time, in Aunt Dimity: Detective, murder comes to roost in Lori Shepard's own village.

Nobody in the little town of Finch was really surprised when Prunella "Pruneface" Hooper came to a nasty end -- but murder? There hadn't been a murder in Finch since 1872 when one shepherd bashed another with the hook of his crook. Despite her hectic home schedule with her three-year-old twins, Lori agrees to investigate. But narrowing the list of suspects is a major challenge: the newly arrived Pruneface had quickly become privy to everyone's secrets -- and used her secret knowledge to plant rumors, nurture backbiting, resurrect feuds, and season it all with downright lies. Almost everyone had a reason to want her dead. Fortunately, Aunt Dimity's supernatural skills -- and her insight into uncovering the true goodness of human nature -- make the experience of unraveling the mystery "as cozy as a warm fire on a winter's night" (The Denver Post).

display_description The delightful seventh installment of the bestselling and beloved Aunt Dimity series. Watch out for Nancy Atherton's latest, Aunt Dimity and the King's Ransom, coming in July 2018 from Viking!
When Lori Shepherd returns from her trip to America, she is shocked to hear that Prunella "Pruneface" Hooper has been killed. This is the first murder in the village of Finch in more than a century, and everyone is in an uproar. Before the town implodes in the wake of this scandal, Lori sets out to solve the murder. Unfortunately, nearly everyone in Finch had a reason to want Mrs. Hooper dead. With the help of the ghostly Aunt Dimity and Nicholas, the enigmatic (and charming!) self-defense instructor, Lori aligns motive, means, and opportunity to unravel this delightfully tangled and gossip-filled whodunnit.
