Aunt Dimity: Vampire Hunter
Lori Shepherd's life in England couldn't be more tranquil or satisfying--except for one thing: Lori's five-year-old twins have started school and she's having trouble coping! She worries that her precious sons will catch everything from the flu to fleas, until the twins come home one drizzly day and give her something truly terrifying to worry about.
Have Will and Rob had a close encounter with a vampire? Lori has her doubts, but when the boys describe the pale, cloaked figure with bloodstained lips they've seen lurking in the woods, she decides to investigate.
After consulting with the late (but not entirely departed) Aunt Dimity, and enlisting the aid of her dear friend, Kit Smith, Lori embarks on a new career as a fearless vampire hunter!
The vampire-hunting trail leads her to Leo, a charming vagabond; to a bitter old crone named Lizzie Black; and finally to Aldercot Hall, where a mysterious murder took place forty years ago. With Kit by her side and Aunt Dimity to guide her, Lori uncovers the secret that will shock everyone--including herself--and discovers the true identity of the twins' vampire.
With its placid English countryside setting, eccentric characters, and lighthearted charm, Nancy's newest novel will enchant cozy mystery aficionados and the many loyal readers of the Aunt Dimity series.
Fans of cozy mysteries will find themselves curling up with a nice cup of garlic er, tea for the most spine-tingling Aunt Dimity mystery yet. ---goodreads.com
