"Nancy Atherton's twenty-second cozy mystery in the beloved, nationally bestselling Aunt Dimity series. It's early April in the small English village of Finch. Lori Shepherd's husband and sons are spending Easter break camping, and Lori is perfectly happy to be left at home with Bess, spared a week of roughing it with a curious toddler. The two attend a village events committee meeting and Lori is astonished when the elderly, soft-spoken widow Mrs. Annabelle Craven stands to make an announcement: she's decided to hold a quilting bee in the old schoolhouse. At the quilting bee, Lori ends up seated beside Mrs. Craven, delighted at the opportunity to learn more about her neighbor's life in the village of Old Cowerton. But dear, sweet Mrs. Craven's stories reveal a startling secret about her first husband's death. With Aunt Dimity's advice, Lori sets out to learn the truth about what the residents of Old Cowerton refer to as the "widow's curse"--And the deeper she digs, the more horrifying the tale becomes, until she discovers the most astounding revelation of all"-- Provided by publisher.

This is the 22nd book in the Aunt Dimity series. I had stopped reading them as they seemed to have lost their charm, but I thoroughly enjoyed #22, Aunt D and the Summer King, so I also checked this book out. It didn't disappoint. I really enjoyed it too.

Lori is at home with her toddler daughter Bess while her sons and husband are camping. She attends a town meeting and learns a friend Annabelle Craven asks people to join her in a quilting Bee. At the bee, she tells Lori that she murdered her first husband. Lori cannot believe such a gentle woman could have done so, she she and a good friend travel to the village where Ms. Craven formerly lived to see if she really had done so. She meets a number of fascinating people, hears their stories, and finds out the truth. It is a beautiful story.

A very quick, cozy and humorous read. This book was better than the last one in the series.
