9780140178418: Aunt Dimity and the Duke (Aunt Dimity Mystery)

The beloved Aunt Dimity returns in this delightful follow-up to the book that launched the Aunt Dimity series. Watch out for Nancy Atherton's latest, Aunt Dimity and the Widow's Curse, coming in May 2017 from Viking!

Emma Porter is forty, fat, frumpy, and a passionate amateur gardener. When her longtime lover dumps her for a younger woman, Emma escapes the cloying sympathy of family and friends by setting out on a summer-long driving tour of England's glorious gardens. A Dimity-contrived coincidence brings her to Penford Hall, a sprawling Gothic mansion in Cornwall, where she finds a duke in search of a missing lantern with extraordinary powers. Suspecting there's more than one mystery to be solved at Penford Hall, Emma accepts the duke's invitation to stay on and restore the once glorious chapel garden to its former beauty. The dark rumors surrounding a rock star and the near-death of the duke's beautiful cousin confirm Emma's suspicions, and set her--with Aunt Dimity's ghostly guidance--on the path to Penford Hall's secrets and the pleasure of unexpected love.

Descripción Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1995. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Emma Porter is forty, fat, and frumpy - and a passionate amateur gardener. When her longtime lover dumps her for a younger woman, Emma escapes the cloying sympathy of family and friends by setting out on a summer-long driving tour of England s glorious gardens. At her first stop, Bransley Manor, she meets the Pym sisters - a delightfully eccentric pair of identical twins who are close friends and confidantes of the mysterious Aunt Dimity. The Pyms - with Aunt Dimity s help - derail Emma s tour by sending her to savor the little-known private gardens of Penford Hall. Penford Hall, a sprawling Gothic manor house set high on the cliffs of Cornwall, is awaiting a miracle. Once every hundred years - so the family legend goes - an ancient artifact known as the Lady s Lantern must light of its own accord or the Penford line will come to an ignominious end. Grayson Alexander, the fourteenth duke of Penford, fears that he may also be the last duke of Penford, for the Lady s Lantern is missing and he has mere months in which to recover it. Grayson is distracted from the search by his beautiful but vindictive cousin Ashers, a fading fashion model who suspects him of nothing less than the murder of the obnoxious rock singer Lex Rex, and by the dreadful state of Grandmother s garden, which must be restored to its former glory. Enter Emma, who accepts Grayson s invitation to stay on at Penford Hall, beguiled by the garden s forlorn beauty, smitten by a bad case of love-at-first-sight for grieving widower Derek Harris - a fellow houseguest and another of Aunt Dimity s many friends - and filled with the delicious conviction that there s more than one mystery to be solved at Penford Hall. Emma s hunchis chillingly confirmed when she finds Ashers sprawled facedown and bleeding at the bottom of the garden s uneven steps. She s barely alive - and though Emma herself has wished Ashers to vaporize at times, someone else clearly had something more permanent in mind. Emma is determin.
