I love cozy mysteries and Aunt Dimity is one of my favorites. I do want to say not to be put off by the fact that there is a ghost in these stories. I actually would not call it is ghost. Aunt Dimity is dead and speaks to Lori through a diary. But it is small part of the book and a way for the characters to communicate together. My mother who is very sensitive about this type of thing, loves these books. So please give them a look before you decide what you think.
"Lori thought Aunt Dimity was just a character in a family bedtime story until a law firm summoned her to a reading of her relative's last will and testament. Lori will inherit a sizeable estate--if she can discover the secret hidden in a treasure trove of letters tucked away at Dimity's English country cottage."
Now I know this marzipan is really expensive but it is really worth it. And it is hard to find. But if you are lucky enough to be able to get some and love marzipan, you need to try this. It is amazing. A fresh almond taste, a creamy texture and much softer to work with.
"From the ancient town of Salemi in western Sicily comes this organic marzipan of unsurpassed quality. The fine texture and clean, simple flavor makes cakes, candies and cookies more delicious than ever. Try it by itself as a candy. Contains only organic Palma Girgenti and Mandorla Cuore almonds, organic cane sugar, and organic vanilla. No milk powder, flour, or lecithin. This marzipan is also used in Italy to make a superb almond drink (latte di mandorla). Place 1 quart of water and 2/3 of package contents in a blender. Blend until all the marzipan has dissolved."
