This book would be completely suitable for young adults as well as older readers who enjoy a mystery similar to a grown-up version of The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, mysterious enough to keep you guessing but not at all dark, violent, or disturbing.

Synopsis

On the heels of two bestsellers, everyone’s favorite paranormal detective embarks on her eighteenth cozy adventure. Watch out for Nancy Atherton's latest, Aunt Dimity and the King's Ransom, coming in July 2018 from Viking!

It’s a cold, dreary February in the sleepy village of Finch and Lori Shepherd has two stir-crazy kids on her hands. So she leaps at the chance to visit Skeaping Manor, a bizarre Jacobean-house-turned-museum. There she meets Daisy Pickering, a sweet, but strange little girl from a poor family who spins a wild tale about the Russian aristocrats who once owned the priceless silver pieces on display. A few days later, Daisy’s shabby pink parka turns up at Lori’s thrift shop—with a silver sleigh figurine in the pocket. Lori tries to track down the Pickering family, only to find that they’ve disappeared without a trace.

A delightful whodunit stretching back to the Russian Revolution, Aunt Dimity and the Lost Prince will beguile new and longtime fans.

Atherton's spritely 18th paranormal cosy starring Lori Shepherd...is an excellent jumping-on point for newcomers...Atherton's assured prose allows readers to buy into the offbeat concept for a dead assistant investigator, and things play out in traditional cosy fashion.
