Nancy, Bess and George take afternoon tea there while waiting out a storm. They encounter Asa Sidney, celebrating his 100th birthday, and the pathetic maid/waitress Carol Wipple, mistreated by her adoptive parents, Frank and Emma Jemmit.

Nancy discovers that Mr. Sidney is an elderly relative of Bess and George, and her willingness to communicate with him launches a family feud upon his death a few days later, and leaves her chumless, as the cousins refuse to associate with Nancy.

Relatives of Mr. Sidney and his wife(Sidney and Boonton families) fight over the money, getting in on the action. Nancy also must discover why Asa was interested in the young woman.
