Review
The Aunt Dimity series continues to delight, even without a dead body. When Lori Shepherd finds a gold and garnet bracelet in her attic, her ghost-companion Aunt Dimity, with whom Lori communicates through Dimity’s journal, tells her about a postwar romance involving the bracelet. At Dimity’s request, Lori seeks out veterans in her British village who may remember a man who called himself Badger, in hopes of giving him a message Dimity was never able to convey. In the meantime, life in the village takes an exciting turn when a new couple move in and introduce the locals to metal detecting. Soon any manner of objects are discovered under the soil, allowing villagers to right old wrongs. Lori’s journey takes her to an anthropologist who tells her about a secret literally in her own backyard. The use of historical detail here, especially the fascinating stories behind found objects, showcase Atherton’s ability to keep this unique and long-running series fresh and enjoyable. A natural for fans of M. C. Beaton’s Agatha Raisin. -- Alessio, Amy (Reviewed 5/1/2016) (Booklist, vol 112, number 17, p18)
