Aunt Dimity Slays the Dragon - Nancy Atherton This was the perfect escape after a very stressful six weeks. I didn't want anything with much of a plot. But like comfort food, the characters are familiar old friends. And I LOVE Ren. Fests. There was even a nice twist at the end, which I won't give away, except to say that Lori is NOT the one to solve the mystery...

From Amazon.com :
Lori’s peaceful English village is being overrun by a rowdy and mischievous Renaissance fair.

Lori Shepherd loves living in the small English village of Finch, but as her eighth summer in the town approaches she finds herself wishing for something exciting to spice up her all-too-familiar routine. When King Wilfred’s Faire opens nearby, Lori gets her wish and more. The age of chivalry lives again at the Renaissance fair. Wizards, wenches, magicians, and minstrels cajole the fairgoers while lords quaff, jesters joke, and knights battle in the joust arena. But Lori discovers that it’s not all pageantry and play.

A sinister figure is stalking the angel-voiced madrigal singer. A jealous rival has sabotaged the Dragon Knight’s weapons. And an evil assassin is trying to murder Good King Wilfred. With Aunt Dimity’s otherworldly guidance, Lori races to save her dear village and risks her neck to keep the medieval revelry from ending in tragedy.
