Saddle up, friends! Aunt Dimity's on her way to the rugged Colorado Rockies in the charming and chilling twelfth installment of the coziest mystery series of them all!
Lori Shepherd barely survived her last adventure--a thriller that took her to a remote Scottish island--and she's having a tough time getting back to her old self. She's nursing a gunshot wound and plagued by nightmares that force her to relive her terrible ordeal.
Lori is shocked when husband Bill suggests that she leave her beloved English village of Finch for a holiday in the Colorado Rockies, but when she and their five-year-old twins arrive in the beautiful mountain town of Bluebird, Colorado, she quickly discovers that a change of scene and a fresh mystery to solve are just what the doctor ordered.
The Aerie, her spectacular vacation home, seems perfect--but is it? The Aerie's caretaker, James Blackwell, has disappeared under mysterious circumstances; the Aerie's owners refuse to set foot in a place they once loves; the townspeople are hiding a dark secret; and Toby Cooper, the charming, helpful, and utterly adorable new caretaker, seems to know more than he's letting on.
Is the Aerie cursed, or is a sinister hand shaping its eerie reputation? With Aunt Dimity's help, Lori sets out to solve a hundred-year-old mystery and discovers in the process that sometimes the strangest places can seem the most like home.
A charming mystery, filled with warmth and affection. ---Deadly Pleasures
