Nancy Atherton has written a collection of mysteries involving Aunt Dimity and Lori Shepherd. They are very entertaining books, as is this one that I am now reviewing.
Even though Lori Shepherd is an American, she lives in England with her twin sons and her husband. Her sons are now going to school and Lori is worrying about anything and everything, to the point where she is neglecting her interactions with the small community where she resides. When the twins spy what they think is a vampire, Lori goes into detective mode to find out what is going on. Her Aunt Dimity is at hand to help her. Funny thing about Aunt Dimity, though. She isn't alive.
Aunt Dimity, who is not really an aunt, just a very good friend of Lori's now deceased mother, is deceased as well, though she is able to commune with Lori through a blue journal. The pages in this journal are perfectly blank, but when Lori opens it and starts to speak, Aunt Dimity's beautiful blue script fills the page. And Aunt Dimity can give Lori some very good advice from the great beyond.
Aunt Dimity: Vampire Hunter is an enjoyable novel. I have enjoyed all of Nancy Atherton's books that I have been fortunate enough to read so far, and this one is being added to my list.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a lighthearted novel with a paranormal twist.
