In the newest installment of the bestselling Aunt Dimity
series, a dreary Christmas leads to hidden treasure and new
It's almost Christmas in the small English village of
Finch--and everyone is sick. Though many of the villagers
regretfully decline their invitations to Emma Harris's
annual Christmas bash, Lori Shepherd has no intention of
missing it. When the winter weather takes a turn for the
worse, it's agreed that none of the guests will leave until
morning. There's general merriment as the Christmas party
becomes a pajama party--until a car appears in the winding
driveway and promptly slides off the slick pavement and into
Matilda "Tilly" Trout--a lost and scatterbrained,
middle-aged woman--is mercifully unhurt and invited to stay
the night. While she catches her breath, Emma asks her other
guests if they would like a tour of the Manor--including an
odd room that puzzles her. Several guests put forth guesses
as to its purpose, but it's Tilly who correctly identifies
the room as a chapel. Placing a palm on one of the
ornately-carved panels, Tilly finds a hidden compartment
concealing a pile of glittering treasure--including an
exquisitely decorated heart made of solid gold. Where did it
come from, and why does it look so different from everything
else in the chapel? Why didn't Emma even know about this
hidden compartment in her own home until now--and how did Tilly?
With Aunt Dimity's otherworldly help and Tilly's bewildering
store of knowledge, Lori and friends set out to unravel the
mystery behind the heart of gold. And, against all odds--and
Christmas finally comes to Finch!
