Publisher's Summary

The perfect cozy mystery for Halloween, with everyone's favorite phantom in a tale of family secrets, yesteryear romance, and spirits less friendly than herself.
Fans of Nancy Atherton's beloved series are eagerly awaiting her latest supernatural treat, as her lovable heroine Lori Shepherd is drawn into another adventure sure to tantalize the mind and touch the heart.
In Aunt Dimity Beats the Devil, Lori's twins are now toddlers, walking and talking enough to drive her nearly stir crazy. So she jumps at the offer of a break - a trip to evaluate a rare-book collection in a remote and misty corner of Northumberland. On a dark and stormy night in late October, she sets out for Wyrdhurst Hall, the grim neo-Gothic castle owned by newlyweds Nicole and Jared Hollander. On the way there she encounters Adam Chase, a charming, handsome stranger who knows more than he's telling about the hall's mysterious secrets. Lori falls under Wyrdhurst's spell - and Adam's - when she unearths a cache of World War I letters that tell a tale of doomed love and hint at a treasure hidden in the hall. It will take all of Dimity's supernatural skills to help Lori solve the puzzle and restore peace to a family haunted by its tragic past.

Dreadful narration

I thought this looked like a good yarn, light reading to listen to while I work. However, after a few minutes into the first chapter I abandoned this book. Dreadful narration, which was stilted and the regional accents truly awful. I just couldn't bear to listen for more than a few minutes. I only gave one star for the story because the narration prevented me from hearing it.Waste of a credit!

Another good story made painful by awful narration

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator

What was one of the most memorable moments of Aunt Dimity Beats the Devil?

The laughter in the secret passage.

What didn’t you like about Teri Clark Linden’s performance?

Everything - She's awful.

The narration is extremely stilted when attempting anything other than (I'm assuming) her usual American accent. Since the book is set in England, there's a LOT of stilted and inaccurate attempts at English accents, and it gets PAINFUL to listen to when she attempts Scottish.

If this book were a film would you go see it?


Any additional comments?

Such a shame that such lively and interesting stories are spoiled by the stilted narration.
