Nancy Atherton's delightful cozy mystery series holds up nicely with AUNT DIMITY & THE LOST PRINCE

Gotta love Nancy Atherton's ghostly detective series starring Aunt Dimity and her young (very much alive) protege, Lori.

Lori is back, supported by the colorful cast of characters from the town of Finch, to solve the mystery involving a silver sleigh, a Russian prince, an enigmatic little girl in a pink parka and the ongoing teapot tempests of life in Finch.

This series has stayed fresh and charming over the course of almost 20 years (I think this is the 18th book), and will delight fans of Miss Marple type cozies.
