Release date: February 7, 2006 | Series: Aunt Dimity Mystery
The next page-turning installment in the phantom-detective mystery series that has won the hearts of cozy mystery fans everywhere
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. But after only a few visits, Miss Beacham suddenly passes away, leaving Lori to tie up the loose ends of her late friend’s life. Lori soon discovers that hidden among Miss Beacham’s belongings are clues that Lori believes her friend left for her to discover. 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.
 Review –
This is one of my favorites of the Aunt Dimity Mystery Series because it leaves us with with the thought that we can’t choose our family but we can choose our friends and Lori was chosen to be such a friend to a dying woman alone, or so it seems. The story has warmth,affection, and made me cry. I would definitely read it again.
