An advantage of the Cosy Mystery genre is the fact it requires no grisly murders or deep drama. Aunt Dimity and the Summer King provides an excellent example that keeps one reading the “Paranormal Detective” story about a quaint village with quirky characters and a new mother whose ghostly mentor advises her when curiosity and imagination lead to a mystery she feels compelled to solve.

Laugh-out-loud humour is liberally sprinkled through this feel-good tale of village life that leaves one wishing to find a similar community that feels like family, where houses have character and neighbours have personality and peculiarity to spare.
