Publisher's Summary

Down-on-her-luck Lori learns she's about to inherit a sizable estate - if she can discover the secret hidden in a treasure trove of letters in Dimity's English country cottage. What begins as a fairy tale becomes a mystery - and a ghost story - in an improbably cozy setting, as Aunt Dimity's indominable spirit leads Lori on an otherworldly quest to discover how, in this life, true love can conquer all.

great book, lousy reader

Would you consider the audio edition of Aunt Dimity's Death to be better than the print version?

You're kidding, right? Reader Teri Clark Linden is nearly the worst reader ever! I finished reading the book in paperback.

What did you like best about this story?

I read this book years ago and loved it, and I wanted to experience it all over again. Even so, I had completely forgotten how charming this modern-day fairy tale was!

Downtrodden librarian Lori Shepherd is startled to discover that Aunt Dimity, who she'd always thought was an imaginary heroine in her mother's stories, actually lived -- or had lived until very recently. Lori is called upon by the terms of Dimity Westwood's will to accomplish a task. But, Lori discovers, the real task she needs to fulfill so that the dead can rest in peace is a very different one altogether. Along the way, Lori, with the help of a good-hearted and winsome young lawyer, solves more than one mystery.

Would you be willing to try another one of Teri Clark Linden’s performances?

Actually, I refuse to listen to any more Aunt Dimity books simply because she's the reader. I love Audible books, and I may break down later if I get so busy that I can't read paperback books at all.

I almost never check to see who the reader is because, usually, the reader can't ruin the experience for me. In future, I'll be careful not to buy any books that are read by her.

Save yourselves!

Years ago, I read as many of these cute cozy mysteries as I could find. Imagine my delight when I found that they were here on audible.

I have listened to the first 20 minutes of this book and can go no further. I won't go into greater detail, but will say that a reader can make or break a book or a series.

This is a real shame.

Poor Narration

The story, whilst not great literature, was a cozy read which kept my interest. It was not helped at all by the narration which sounded-computer generated with really bad attempts at accents.

Poor narration

Would you consider the audio edition of Aunt Dimity's Death to be better than the print version?

No. Sounds robotic and monotone. The story might be OK but the narration is too irritating. Shame the series all use the same narrator. Might consider reading a copy of the book myself

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Teri Clark Linden?

An alternative narrator might improve the performance.
