This latest in the Aunt Dimity series offers Nancy Atherton's fans the perfect treat to top their Christmas list. Never has her "irresistible blend of romance, suspense and the supernatural" (Minneapolis Star Tribune) held more appeal than in this touching tale of her lovable heroine's Christmas wish and the truths it teaches her.Lori Shepard's plans for a perfect family Christmas are derailed when a mysterious charismatic stranger collapses in the driveway of her cozy English cottage. While the nearby village of Finch prepares to celebrate the season with a nativity play on Christmas Eve, Lori teams up with Julian Bright--a devilishly attractive Roman Catholic priest--to search for the stranger's identity. Their journey takes them from hospital wards to homeless shelters to insane asylums, places where the Christmas star shines dimly, if at all. As Lori unveils the tragic secret that led the stranger to her door, she confronts painful truths about herself and discovers the real meaning of a perfect family Christmas.

5th title in the Aunt Dimity series. As is the situation, Lori is determined to know....the facts, the truth, the circumstances.
Bright writing, enjoyable plot.

This was a first try for the Aunt Dimity series so I had to push myself to stay with it for a bit. It turned out to be an okay book. I just didn't find anything that drew me in to the characters like the Bailey Ruth ghost mystery books by a different author. And it doesn't use the ghost of Aunt Dimity nearly enough!
It was like comparing apples to rocks. Not the same at all.
Guess it was entertaining enough. I have a couple more of the series but just don't know if I want to invest the time when the author doesn't draw you in the way I am used to with other "cozy mysteries".

I read a little of it but gave up. Try again?
