Nancy Atherton's growing number of fans will certainly be delighted by Aunt Dimity's latest appearance in the honey-colored English cottage she bequeathed to her "niece", Lori Shepherd. Thanks to Aunt Dimity, Lori's life has taken on fairy-tale proportions: She's financially set for life and happily married...or so she thinks. When Lori's plans for a second honeymoon to England with her workaholic husband fall through, she begrudgingly takes along her father-in-law who promptly disappears, leaving behind a mysterious note. Inspired and guided by the ghost of Aunt Dimity and her inimitable blue journal, Lori's search for the elderly gentleman turns into a harrowing mission to uncover a centuries-old family secret complicated by mistaken identities, falsified deeds, family feuds, and Lori's unseemly attraction to her husband's beguiling English cousin. In a delightful chase that takes her all over the English countryside, Lori discovers the true meaning of marital bliss, and Nancy Atherton's fans, new and old, will savor a masterpiece of old-fashioned fun.

Please, please, please- find a different narrator!

What did you like about this audiobook?

Charming series of stories.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

I've read them all in book form, and thought I'd enjoy listening to them. However, the narrator is so terrible that I couldn't listen to them without cringing. I finally upped the speed to 2.5, and then she was barely tolerable. She reads like a beginning reader or speech student- e-nun-c-at-ing, mispronouncing, and emphasizing words that were unimportant in the phrase. Ugh! What a disservice to this series.

Do you have any additional comments?

Again, PLEASE reissue with a different narrator.

How did this narrator get hired?

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story is interesting, however with nearly 300 titles in my Audible library this is the first time I have encountered a narrator that is so bad I will be submitting for a refund.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Sounds like a computer with a mild grasp of the English language and terrible
