Can Lori unravel a mystery that is thicker than the snow on the Cotswold hills?

The snow forces Lori to take shelter in a house of treasures and secrets in Aunt Dimity: Snowbound, the ninth mystery from much-loved author Nancy Atherton. Perfect for fans of M. C. Beaton and Ann Granger.

‘Witty and engaging… just the thing when life gets to be too much, and you want to escape into a book’ – Lincoln Journal Star

A winter’s stroll in the Cotswolds takes an unexpected turn for Lori Shepherd when a snow blizzard strikes out of the blue. Together with two backpackers, she seeks shelter in the nearby Ladythorne Abbey, once home to Lady Lucasta DeClerke, and waits for the storm to pass.

But it soon becomes clear that there is more to the Abbey’s late owner than meets the eye. And when Lori learns of a plot to steal a priceless family heirloom, she attempts to prevent the theft and keep herself out of harm’s way. But as her ghostly Aunt Dimity says, ‘Old sins cast long shadows’. If Lori is to banish the hatred and guilt shrouding Ladythorne Abbey, she will need all the wisdom and compassion she can find.

What readers are saying about Aunt Dimity: Snowbound:

‘If I only had one book to read on a rainy afternoon, this would be the one’

‘Not since I first went through the wardrobe to discover the magic of Narnia have I so enjoyed a book

Delightful. Interesting characters, great descriptions of village life, and a unique concept make this series a comforting read’
