Volunteering at the Radcliffe Infirmary, Lori Shepherd befriends a lonely retired secretary who soon passes away, and when Lori discovers that the woman possessed a considerable estate, she attempts to locate the woman's next-of-kin.

Blackwell North Amer
Feeling a touch world-weary, Lori Shepherd decides to become a volunteer at the Radcliffe Infirmary where she can spread a little good cheer. There she meets Elizabeth Beacham, a kind, retired legal secretary with no family, except a brother who has mysteriously disappeared. Lori and Miss Beacham become quick companions, but after only a few visits, Miss Beacham suddenly passes away.
Lori is saddened by the loss of her new friend, but when she receives an envelope containing a set of keys and a letter Miss Beacham wrote just a few days before her death, it becomes clear that there was much more to the gentle invalid than met the eye. Notices start arriving around the village of the large bequests made before Miss Beacham's death. And Lori finds that Miss Beacham's flat is filled with priceless antiques - an inheritance too precious to remain unclaimed. Hidden among her belongings are clues that Lori feels certain Miss Beacham has left for her to discover. But what is she trying to tell Lori from beyond the grave? Armed with the generous help of a handsome neighbor and as always, aunt Dimity's supernatural skills, Lori begins to unearth Miss Beacham's secrets and, ultimately, the surprising truth about her next of kin.

I usually enjoy this (silly) series but unless you are interested in old furniture and horses I would say take a pass on this one.
