Content descriptions

General Note: Book 7 of the Aunt Dimity series (series numeration from Goodreads.com).
Summary, etc.: There's been a murder in Finchl" the vicar's wife tells Lori Shepherd upon Lori's return from her trip to America. This is not the kind of greeting she had expected to receive bock at her usually idyllic English cottage. Lori simply can't believe it. There hadn't been a murder in Finch since 1872, when one shepherd bashed another with the hook of his crook. When Lori discovers the victim was Prunella "Pruneface" Hooper, however, she is less surprised: the newly arrived Pruneface had quickly become privy to everyone's secrets - and used her secret knowledge to plant rumors, nurture backbiting, resurrect feuds, and season it all with downright lies. Almost everyone had a reason to want her dead. Despite her hectic home schedule with her three-year-old twins, Lori agrees to investigate because the police have come up short. It seems nobody in the close-knit town wants to talk. But Lori is bound and determined she'll get tongues wagging and solve the case. She knows she needs the help of Aunt Dimity, but she hadn't expected help from the vicar's nephew, Nicholas Fox. Why is a self-defense instructor from London so interested in solving this case? And, most important, why does he have to be so darn handsome? Lori tries to put personal feelings aside as the newly formed team of Lori, Nicholas, and Aunt Dimity forges ahead - but narrowing the list of suspects remains a major challenge. Fortunately, Aunt Dimity's supernatural skills - and her insight into uncovering the true goodness of human nature - lead Lori down a path not only to unraveling the mystery, but also to uncovering a lot of good among the bad.
