Nancy Atherton's twenty-first cozy mystery in the beloved, Nationally Bestselling Aunt Dimity series.

While exploring the attic in her cottage near the small English village of Finch, Lori Shepherd makes an extraordinary discovery: a gleaming gold and garnet bracelet that had once belonged to Aunt Dimity. When Lori shows the garnet bracelet to Aunt Dimity, it awakens poignant memories of a doomed romance in Aunt Dimity's youth in London after the War. Regretfully, Aunt Dimity asks Lori to do what she could not: return the bracelet to her unsuccessful suitor--setting Lori off on an adventure through London--and through history--to put a piece of Aunt Dimity's past to rest.

In the meantime, a new family has moved to Finch. The villagers are thrilled because their new neighbors are avid metal detectorists. Metal detectors soon become all the rage in Finch and the villagers unearth a lot of rubbish (some of it quite embarrassing) before one of them stumbles upon a trinket that could hold the key to the origin of Aunt Dimity's bracelet.

Is the bracelet a priceless and protected national treasure? Was Aunt Dimity's lovesick suitor a common thief? If so, how will Lori break the news to Aunt Dimity? And what will she do with the bracelet? As Lori searches for answers, she discovers an unexpected link between the buried treasure in the village and the treasure buried in Aunt Dimity's heart.

After twenty-one books Nancy Atherton's Aunt Dimity series remains one of my favorites. They are cozy mysteries, frequently without a murder (as is true in this one), and with a touch of the paranormal. What I find most appealing is the frequent setting in a small English village called Finch, and the interactions of the villagers. The residents of Finch all have their flaws and eccentricities resulting in minor blow ups but ultimately their sense of community brings them together.

Totally enjoyed this book. Better than just an English cozy. The characters are really kind to each other without being too sappy. The plot is so interesting with that touch of mystery, I just wanted to keep reading and found it hard to put down.

I love this series, which begins with Aunt Dimity's Death, a 5-star book. It is essential that this series be read in order. If you like pleasant books about lovely characters, with a bit of magic thrown in, this is the series for you. The books are all 4-5 stars.
