Aunt Dimity and the Lost Prince

Book 18, Aunt Dimity Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


On the heels of two bestsellers, everyone’s favorite paranormal detective embarks on her eighteenth cozy adventure. Watch out for Nancy Atherton's latest, Aunt Dimity and the King's Ransom, coming in July 2018 from Viking!

It’s a cold, dreary February in the sleepy village of Finch and Lori Shepherd has two stir-crazy kids on her hands. So she leaps at the chance to visit Skeaping Manor, a bizarre Jacobean-house-turned-museum. There she meets Daisy Pickering, a sweet, but strange little girl from a poor family who spins a wild tale about the Russian aristocrats who once owned the priceless silver pieces on display. A few days later, Daisy’s shabby pink parka turns up at Lori’s thrift shop—with a silver sleigh figurine in the pocket. Lori tries to track down the Pickering family, only to find that they’ve disappeared without a trace.

A delightful whodunit stretching back to the Russian Revolution, Aunt Dimity and the Lost Prince will beguile new and longtime fans.


From Publishers Weekly

Jul 15, 2013 – Atherton's spritely 18th paranormal cosy starring Lori Shepherd (after 2012's Aunt Dimity and the Village Witch) is an excellent jumping-on point for newcomers. Shepherd, an American expat living in the Cotswolds, has her hands full as "wife, mother, community volunteer, busybody-in-training, and chairwoman" of a nonprofit trust. Despite all this, Shepherd finds time to play sleuth, aided by the spirit of her Aunt Dimity Westwood, who fills the blank pages of a journal with her thoughts. This time, Aunt Dimity assists Lori and her family as they arrive at Skeaping Manor, a stately-home-turned museum complete with mummies and shrunken heads. While there, Lori is intrigued by a young child, Daisy Pickering, daughter of the manor's cleaning woman, who identifies a silver piece as a saltcellar. The item disappears, as do the Pickerings, and Lori becomes convinced that these events are linked with Daisy's claims that the saltcellar belonged to a lost Russian prince. Atherton's assured prose allows readers to buy into the offbeat concept for a dead assistant investigator, and things play out in traditional cosy fashion.
