Introducing Aunt Dimity, paranormal detective : the first two books in the beloved series

Nancy Atherton.

An irresistible introduction to everyone's favorite cozy mystery series. Over the course of fourteen successful books, Nancy Atherton's Aunt Dimity series has become enormously popular. Now, with the first two mysteries in one volume, "Introducing Aunt Dimity, Paranormal Detective" makes it easy to get a taste of the ghostly sleuthas delightful debut. In "Aunt Dimity's Death," Aunt Dimity's American niece, Lori Shepherd, had long thought her mother's childhood tales of Aunt Dimity were merely comforting bedtime stories. But when a pair of lawyers informs her that her mysterious aunt has just died and made the down-on-her-luck Lori a rich woman, she finds a reason to believe. "Aunt Dimity and the Duke" finds the benevolent spirit helping Emma Porter - forty, fat, and frumpy - tame a Duke's overgrown garden and discover romance along the way. These two tales continue to enchant Atherton's devoted fans and, packaged together, are sure to attract even more new readers to the series.
