Aunt Dimity and the Next of Kin
I haven't read an Aunt Dimity book in more than a year so I decided to start out the year with one plus it will apply to several challenges that I am participating in. I have loved Aunt Dimity since the first one I ever read but I have to say that this one fell a little flat. I don't know why except that I have been reading a lot of Agatha Raisin and Agatha is a lot feistier than Lori Shepherd and maybe I was expecting it to be livelier.
With that said, however, the setting was great, the story was good, I felt like the conclusion seemed to be very "Murder She Wrote". I did enjoy it and will continue to work toward completing the series -- maybe I have just been away from the books too long.
I do recommend the book as well as the entire series. They are great little reads.
