Cover: 'Aunt Dimity and the Wishing Well '

Staff Review: "Aunt Dimity and the Wishing Well " by Nancy Atherton


If you're looking for a cozy mystery set in the English countryside with a cast of likeable characters and an ending that will make you smile, this is your next read! In the 19th Aunt Dimity mystery, Lori Shepard and the tight-knit village of Finch are burying one of the townsfolk when they meet Jack MacBride, the surprise nephew of the gentleman who passed away. When Jack is given the task of fixing up his uncle's house in order to sell it, an old wishing well is discovered in the back yard. What ensues is a frenzy of wishes and the chaotic aftermath that only Aunt Dimity can help Lori sort through. Although this wasn't my favorite Aunt Dimity mystery, I still sunk right into it and closed it with a smile on my face as usual.
