Nancy Atherton always gives a delightful read. Plenty of light suspense.

If you enjoyed Enid Blyton's Famous Five adventures when you were a child you will enjoy this adult version of mysterious islands, smugglers, secret passages, etc. I think this is one of the best of the Dimity series. Lori usually seems to find attractive men while her husband is somewhere else in this series but even though she is tempted she resists most of the time.
