    1. Julie on said:

      Aunt Dimity and the Buried Treasure by Nancy Atherton is a 2016 Viking Books publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Lori is back with another charming Finch village mystery, but this one is just a little more sentimental for Aunt Dimity, and turns into a very interesting treasure hunt and adventure for Lori. Lori is digging around in her attic when she makes a curious discovery of an old and very expensive bracelet, that definitely does not belong to he [...]

      Comfort reads for me, because I know everything will always work out. Also a good look at small village life in England.

      DNF. I loved so much about this book in its early pages. The writing is lovely, the narrator is funny, the English village folk are a delight. But alas, Aunt Dimity is not for me, solely based on the device of I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say. But I will say it, after I say "possible spoiler alert ahead." I'm not exactly sure if this is a spoiler or not, but I do want to be careful, so you've been warned.It appears that there is a magic journal, in which the ghost of Aunt Dimity communicates [...]

      Lori and Bill are the proud parents of an almost eight month old daughter and nine year old twin boys. They live in the delightful small town of Finch in rural England. The funny, lovable and wacky residents of Finch pride themselves on their friendships and the depth of their knowledge about each other. When a retired husband and wife move in, almost the entire village is on hand to discreetly check the couple out as their moving van unloads. When several boxes are unloaded with Museum marked o [...]

      These books are such a delight to read! They're very lighthearted and relaxing, as well as being thoroughly enjoyable. I love following the characters, especially Lori's growing family, and am always amazed at the number of adventures they have in the tiny village of Finch in the Cotswolds. :) The latest excitement is caused by two new residents, who introduce the hobby of metal detecting to the ever curious and snoopy villagers. This leads Lori to discover in her attic an antique bracelet, whic [...]

      Adorable book! Loved how the plot got more detailed as you read- you can't help but love Lori and her adventures with aunt Dimity! Great summer read

      Aunt Dimity and her Past Lori is happily married to Bill and they have twin sons and a baby daughter. They are settled in the cottage, her father-in-law, William, is living in Ivy Cottage with his new wife and they are all as happy as can be in the village of Finch. For the village, moving day is an exciting day, someone new is moving in and everyone wants a good view of the new neighbors and their household items. Trouble starts when they notice that there are boxes labeled "Museum" and they or [...]

      Missed last summer's installment of the Aunt Dimity series and caught up while on vacation. I really like this gentle series that takes the reader away to the little village of Finch with its quirky residents and the gossip, oh, my, the gossip.

      This was a cute little cozy mystery that had a touch of paranormal with Aunt Dimity speaking from beyond the grave!

    10. Heather on said:

      This was the most recent in the series. I liked reading of exploring London, but this offering seemed rather predictable to me. I might try reading these in German - seems doable.

    11. Sarah Coller on said:

      This was my first Aunt Dimity book and I'm already in love with the characters, premise, and setting of the series. It's not often that you find a happily married mother as a heroine; that, and the fact that they're set in England, is what really attracted me in the first place. This particular mystery was fun as my husband and I having a growing interest in archaeology having watched the first 15 seasons of Time Team on YouTube. Also set in England, the team is always finding neat artifacts lik [...]

      3.5 starsSometimes the characters in a long running series get a little boring, and was true for me of Lori Shepherd, the luckiest girl ever. She has the perfect husband home and kids, and was getting a bit smug about it. I almost didn't read this one because I was getting tired of reading how wonderful she is. Am very glad I did, as this one was very enjoyable. This series typifies "cozy mystery" in every way, with a little twist of the supernatural for fun and plot points. Atherton also makes [...]

      My library surprised me with notification that an e-copy was available. I enjoyed a visit with Aunt Dimity and Lori, her family and the Village of Finch. Newcomers bring a metal detector to the village. It is now a major topic and activity of the village. Lori discovers a bracelet hidden behind a chest in the attic while searching for an item. Lori is startled by Aunt Dimity's response to the I formation. Aunt Dimity tells Lori of an individual she believes she hurt shortly after World War Two. [...]

    14. Lorraine on said:

      This is great. I believe that I enjoyed Aunt Amity and the Buried Treasure by Nancy Atherton the most of all the ones in this series that I have read! The villagers keep on being the villagers. A new couple moves to Finch, and, of course, this interests the villagers tremendously. Even Lori gets out with her 8 month old daughter, Bess, to take a peek at the new members of Finch. The author has two story lines in this book one relating to part of Aunt Dimity's life which I found particularly fasc [...]

      I sat down this morning with this sweet book and could not stop till I finished it. Although I did not want to leave this delightful village of Finch . I have read this entire series and this is the best one in a while. I recently reread Aunt Dimity's Death because it had been about 15 years since I read it and I enjoyed it so much. It takes place in a very small village in the Cotswolds- which is a beautiful spot . The characters are so human , engaging yet rather quirky . I would love to visit [...]

    16. SueEllen on said:

      Even though I have not read any of the previous books in this series, I was intrigued by this book on display at the library. It is a well-written cozy that that makes you feel like part of the adventure. My only problem with the story was the "Blue Journal". Paranormal, fantasy, etc. activities are not really my thing. Those who have faithfully read the series will understand to what I refer. Those who have not, you are warned.

    17. Miki on said:

      Yes, I know I said I wasn't going to read any more Aunt Dimity books. So I lied. Sue me. I just couldn't resist. Other readers are right - this isn't really a mystery, but that's okay. It's much better than the last ones - Lori has calmed down a lot, doesn't dote quite as mawkishly over the baby, and at least Bill makes an appearance. I miss Bill. And Emma. And Derek and Nell and Peter.Overall it was okay, although still not up to the early Dimity stories.

    18. Allyson Faith on said:

      I love this series, and after some sweet but not-as-compelling recent entries, I found this latest one to have more spark in it once again, no doubt because Atherton found a way to being Aunt Dimity's own story back in as the major plot line. Loved it--and now comes the wait for the next Aunt Dimity book! I would like to see more of Lori and Bill's relationship next time, too. I love their relationship.

    19. Susan on said:

      Just what I needed - an enjoyable easy read after a long week back at school! Lori finds a bracelet from Aunt Dimity's past, and sets out to find long-lost "Badger." Of course she succeeds rather easily but still a delightful read (Library)

    20. Casceil on said:

      There are more than twenty books in this series, and I have read them all. They have a charm all their own. This latest installment sends Lori to London to hunt down someone Dimity knew during WWII. I enjoyed it, but anyone not familiar with the series should not start with this book.

    21. Nancy H on said:

      This is another good entry in the Aunt Dimity series. Although mystery purists will probably say there isn't enough mystery and/or adventure, this series is very good for its gentle and lovable characters, great sense of place, and good all-around plots. It is still one of my favorite series.

    22. Agatha on said:

      This was the perfect antidote to the terrifying book I had just finished (THE WINTER PEOPLE). This book is absolutely delightful and charming. It was #21 in a series, but I had no trouble following along or figuring out who was who. Lori Shepherd is an American woman living in a small village in the English Cotswalds with her husband Bill, twin sons Rob and Will, and baby daughter Bess. All the village folk love knowing everything about everyone else’s business, so everyone is overjoyed to get [...]

      Another light-hearted story centering around Lori Shepherd, her family, and the villagers in the small English village of Finch. The villagers are all excited when a new family moves in, as they all jostle each other to get the first glimpse of the new people, their furniture, or anything, really, to share and gossip about. The new neighbors prove to be nice people and the husband is soon sharing with the villagers the joy of his hobby, metal detecting. Soon everyone is trying their hand at it, [...]
