Aunt Dimity Slays the Dragon
What happens when a peaceful English village collides with a rowdy Renaissance festival? Lori Shepherd is about to find out!
Lori loves living in the small village of Finch, but as her eight summer there approaches, she finds herself wishing that something exciting would happen to spice up a routine that's become all too familiar. Her wish is granted when King Wilfred's Faire opens its gates within a stone's throw of the village.
The age of chivalry lives again within the colorful fairgrounds. Wizards, wenches, magicians, and minstrels make merry while lords quaff, jesters laugh, and knights do battle in the joust arena. Lori soon learns, however, that it's not all pageantry and play.
While Finch is besieged by hordes of tipsy tourists, Lori discovers a dark layer of intrigue lurking beneath the fair's bright surface. Is a sinister figure stalking Mirabel, the angel-voiced madrigal singer? Has a jealous rival sabotaged the Dragon Knight's weapons? Is an evil assassin trying to murder Good King Wilfred? Or has Lori's imagination run away with her...again?
With Aunt Dimity's otherworldly advice and guidance, Lori races to save her beloved village and risks her neck to keep medieval revelry from ending in modern-day tragedy.
Honestly, reading just doesn't get any sweeter than this. Take a break from the serial killers . . . and let Nancy Atherton and Aunt Dimity remind you of the reason you got hooked on books in the first place. ---CrimeCritics.com
