Aunt Dimity Goes West


3 Stars

I do like these Aunt Dimity books, and each time a new one comes out I get all excited. I’m a little disappointed in the latest offerings, however. If this keeps up, an Aunt Dimity novel will drop below three stars! How is that possible?!? Anyhow, on to this book.

These novels chronicle the misadventures of a young mother, Lori, and her family, guided by a ghostly presence in the form of a dead family friend. The long running theme in the past few books is Lori and her twins are in mortal danger from some crazy person her husband represents. This book shows Lori and the twins taking a long summer vacation in small-town Colorado, where she (as always) comes up against a nefarious plot to kill someone/destroy the town. She, of course, foils the plot. Same old, same old.

I did like this book a bit better than the last one–at least this one had a good helping of the supernatural (lots of ghosts, lots of mysteries from decades past, that sort of thing) which is a new twist from the past books. Otherwise, it wasn’t all that memorable as Aunt Dimity books go.
