Aunt Dimity Digs In

(1998)
(The fourth book in the Aunt Dimity series)
A novel by

 
At home in the ghostly Aunt Dimity's idyllic English cottage, Lori Shepherd is up to her elbows in pureed avocados and formula bottles as she strives to be the perfect mother to her three-month-old twins! Aunt Dimity restores order - and Lori's sanity - by sending the beautiful and mysterious Francesca Sciaparelli to lend a hand with the boys. The nanny is a treasure, but Lori's newfound freedom proves to be a mixed blessing. No sooner does she step outside the cottage for a breath of diaper-free air than she finds herself smack in the middle of a civil war brewing in the nearby village of Finch. Finch has been torn asunder by the pressing question: Who shall occupy the church schoolhouse? Peggy Kitchen - unofficial empress of Finch - desperately needs the schoolhouse for her long-awaited Harvest Festival. When she learns that the precious building has been given over to visiting archaeologist Adrian Culver for his dig's picks, spades, and shovels, she embarks on a campaign to oust Adrian and his khaki-clad cohorts. Peggy's campaign is passionately countered by those Finch residents who are convinced that Adrian's dig will finally put Finch on the map. The two sides are about to come to blows when Lori learns of the existence of a missing Victorian pamphlet that could prove the archaeological site is a fake - and would surely cause an abrupt end to the entire project, and the local civil war. As Lori hunts for the missing pamphlet, and the thief, she unearths secrets long buried in Finch's past - secrets that divide the village and threaten to destroy the delicate romance now blossoming between her nanny extraordinaire and Adrian Culver.
