Read Aunt Dimity and the Widow's Curse (Aunt Dimity Mystery #22) Online Free - Nancy Atherton's twenty-second cozy mystery in the beloved, nationally bestselling Aunt Dimity series.
It's early April in the small English village of Finch. Lori Shepherd's husband and sons are spending Easter break camping, and Lori is perfectly happy to be left at home with Bess, spared a week of roughing it with a curious toddler. The two attend a village events committee meeting and Lori is astonished when the elderly, soft-spoken widow Mrs. Annabelle Craven stands to make an announcement: she's decided to hold a quilting bee in the old schoolhouse.
At the quilting bee, Lori ends up seated beside Mrs. Craven, delighted at the opportunity to learn more about her neighbor's life in the village of Old Cowerton. But dear, sweet Mrs. Craven's stories reveal a startling secret about her first husband's death.
With Aunt Dimity's advice, Lori sets out to learn the truth about what the residents of Old Cowerton refer to as the "widow's curse"--and the deeper she digs, the more horrifying the tale becomes, until she discovers the most astounding revelation of all.

Aunt Dimity and the Widow’s Curse by Nancy Atherton is a 2017 Viking Books publication.
Another wonderful visit with Lori and the gang in the friendly, but gossipy, village of Finch!!
I know I’ve told this story before, but Aunt Dimity is a special series for me. It is the first ‘modern’ cozy seri...

I listened to the audio version and totally enjoyed all the English accents of all the gossipy residents of the village of Finch. This was a fun, light cozy mystery which is #22 in the series. This was my first and worked just fine as a stand-alone. I will definitely read some more.
I was surprise...

Aunt Dimity books are dependably comforting and satisfying for me. I found this one more predictable than usual and edging on the saccharine at times, but it's still Aunt Dimity, so what else can I say? As always, I can't wait for the next.

This was a very sweet book, which almost hides the savage conclusion that homes for the elderly, such as convalescent homes, are so terrible that a person could prefer jail to such places.
Lori is flabbergasted to suddenly receive a confession of a serious crime (murder of course) from someone sh...

The Aunt Dimity series has been a very favourite of mine since the first book, and while some have been "more favourite" than others, not a single book has disappointed me, and this installment was no different.
These books make small town busybodies lovable, and quiet village life funny and excit...

WHAT a great read. OH MY GOSH I love these books. Every time I think a new Aunt Dimity book cannot be ANY better than the previous one, I am proved wrong, and this one was no exception. So much is going on in this one and I am totally amazed at how wonderful and gracious Lori is, even in the mids...

Though the Aunt Dimity books are short and very hit or miss for me, I am glad to say that this book was better than most and packs a very interesting story.
Lori Shepard will admit to anyone that will listen that she is gullible. She tries to accept everyone at face value so when Mrs. Annabelle C...
