Aunt Dimity and the Deep Blue Sea


Aunt Dimity and the Deep Blue Sea

Nancy Atherton

4 out of 5

I can not get enough of this series. I adore the characters, I adore the settings and I adore the fallibility and the deep caring that binds Lori Shepherd to her friends and family.

Lori’s rather calm life is suddenly turned upside down when death threats hit home and her and the lives of her twin 5 year old sons are threatened. Bill calls in a trusted family friend, Sir Percy Pelham and his gigantic helicopter to whiz them away while Bill stays home going through old files to see who is holding a grudge.

But life can’t be that simple for Lori, after arriving at Percy’s castle on an island off of Scotland, she begins to notice things that just do not make sense. Like why do simple sheep ranchers need satellite dishes and gourmet food in the market? What are these villagers up to and can Lori figure it out, before jumping to too many conclusions, before the true danger arrives.

Peter a character from previous books makes reappearance and it’s nice to see what he has been up to. I highly recommend this series - it’s a great breakaway from the heavier stuff in our TBR’s.

That's why I'm taking this series slowly - I don't want to get caught up.
