Publisher's Summary

Cozy mystery lovers’ favorite paranormal sleuth is back with her 18th otherworldly adventure.
When a finely wrought silver sleigh figurine turns up in her thrift shop, Lori Shepherd recognizes it instantly. It was the object that mesmerized the sweet but very poor nine-year-old Daisy Pickering at Sproggton Manor, the bizarre Jacobean house-turned-museum Lori recently visited with her twin sons. Hoping to avoid any real commotion, Lori decides to speak with the museum curator, who turns out to be oddly uninterested in the theft. But there’s not much that could be done anyway for the Pickerings seem to have come into some money and moved to Australia.
With Aunt Dimity’s otherworldly guidance, Lori’s search for the sleigh’s true owner leads her to a tangled web of secrets stretching from the finest English country estates back to the blood-drenched soil of the Russian Revolution.

Love the author, Hate the narrator

What disappointed you about Aunt Dimity and the Lost Prince?

I have long been a fan of the Aunt Dimity series, owning every title in hardback. This was my first, and potentially last audio version. The narrator is so halting, over-enunciating every word, like a computer generated voice. I only made it through the second chapter before I had to stop. The narrator totally ruined the experience of getting into the story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lori, of course. Love her spunk and ingenuity.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Not at all like a narrator, instead reading each and every word like the person enunciating the words for a spelling bee. Her voice itself is pleasant enough, but her accepts are horrible. Conversations weren't like conversations, they were like an inexperiened newscaster reading the telepromter for the first time.

What character would you cut from Aunt Dimity and the Lost Prince?

The narrator!!!

Any additional comments?

Can I get my money back?

Robot Voice...give me my money back

I'm a fan of this series, but had never tried an audiobook version, so was looking forward to it. When the narration started, the voice was so odd that I thought my iPod had accidentally switched to the wrong speed. It is too unnatural and annoying to be a human reader, and I'm convinced that somebody thought the listeners wouldn't be able to tell the difference if they saved money by having a voice simulation instead of a person. Think of a perky female Stephen Hawking. Just shoot me.

I can't really review the book because the narration is too irritating and distracting to continue. I'll enjoy it later in print.
