It’s always exciting when a new installment is released in a long-running series so it’s with glee that I tell you bestselling author Nancy Atherton’s AUNT DIMITY AND THE BURIED TREASURE, the 21st book in her cozy mystery series about the paranormal detective Aunt Dimity (Viking) goes on sale Tuesday, May 24.
Thanks to Emma and the wonderful folks at Viking/Penguin Books, I have a copy of this fun series to giveaway. Please see the end of the post for more details.
Atherton’s fans have been eagerly awaiting this next entry, in which a fascination with buried treasure spreads like wildfire through the village, while Lori Shepherd travels to London to uncover Aunt Dimity’s old flame. It’s a perfect summer read for fans of cozy mysteries.
Writing for BookPage about the last Aunt Dimity book, Aunt Dimity and the Summer King (now out in paperback from Penguin Books), Atherton said:
“When I wrote my first book, Aunt Dimity's Death, I didn’t think it had a snowball’s chance of being published. At the time, there was no known market for a nonviolent, non-vulgar novel that was sort of a mystery and sort of a love story, with a supernatural element, some gardening, a bit of military history, a pink flannel bunny and a recipe thrown in because, what the heck, why not? The plot couldn’t be summarized in a simple catchphrase, and the story didn’t fit neatly into an established genre. It was a very strange little book—a marketing nightmare! —and I was absolutely convinced that it would remain forever in a box on a shelf in my closet, unseen by any eyes but mine.”
Luckily for Aunt Dimity’s many fans, Atherton was quickly proven wrong—and her books continue to be bestsellers and mystery favorites.
