In the newest volume in the Aunt Dimity's mysteries, Lori and her neighbors in Finch are confronted with a new addition in their village. Jack came all the way from Australia to finish up his late uncle's business. While clearing the land around his cottage, Lori, Jack, and Bree come across a fairy-like well. Soon everyone in Finch is making wishes--and they start coming true! But is all what it really seems to be?

I love the Aunt Dimity books. My mom and I have been reading them and looking forward to them for years, so it's always a special treat when a new one is published. These books would be considered "cottage mysteries;" or, as we call them, "cozy mysteries." They focus on simple mysteries in simple settings, but with a cast of fun characters. The entire village of Finch is filled with gossips and busy bodies who make up the most caring of neighbors.

You don't have to read these books in order, though I might suggest reading Aunt Dimity's Death first so that you know the premise and are given an introduction to the cast. It's a fun light read, good for people who like mysteries, but don't want to read about murder all the time.
