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