Arriving in the Rocky Mountain region of Colorado only to find herself enmeshed in a missing-persons case, Lori Shepherd becomes suspicious about a hundred-year-old mystery and a charming man who seems to know more than he will admit.

Blackwell North Amer
Lori Shepherd barely survived her last adventure - a thriller that took her to a remote Scottish island - and she is having a tough time getting back to her old self. She is nursing a gunshot wound to the shoulder, and when she does manage to catch some rest, she is plagued by terrible nightmares. Reluctant to leave her English home, she is shocked when her husband, Bill, suggests a vacation in the Colorado Rockies. But when Lori and their five-year-old twins arrive in the beautiful mountain of Bluebird, Colorado, she quickly discovers that fresh air, snow-capped peaks, and the Aerie, her spectacular, seemingly perfect vacation home, are just what the doctor ordered.
No sooner has she arrived than things start to go amiss. The Aerie's caretaker, James Blackwell, has disappeared under mysterious circumstances; the Aerie's owners refuse to set foot in a place they once loved; the townspeople are hiding a dark secret; and Toby Cooper, the charming and charismatic new caretaker, seems to know more than he's letting on. Is the Aerie cursed or is a sinister human hand shaping its eerie reputation? With Aunt Dimity's help, Lori sets out to solve a hundred-year-old mystery and discovers in the process that sometimes the strangest places can seem the most like home.

THe Aunt Dimity books are fun and light yet engaging. It's best to begin with the first book as subsequent books follow on each other.

That is all explained in the first couple of books. If you go back and read the first one Aunt Dimity's Death, you will understand.

Hmm I am not sure about this book. I borrowed it out of order from the library out of curiosity. If I understand correctly, the main character speaks out loud to her journal, and a ghost of Auunt Dimity (her mom's deceased friend?) writes back in blue ink. ??? Easy reading, ok story but kind of a weird idea to have such a diary.
