Publisher's Summary

When Emily Mattison falls victim to a near-fatal accident shortly after receiving an unexpected inheritance, her ruthless nephew George seizes the opportunity to take control of his aunt’s assets.

Awaking from a coma to find herself locked up in a Geriatric Care Unit, Emily must rely on her wits and the help of her fellow patient Chad to escape. It’s only when Emily reaches the The Drover’s Hope, a former pub on the edge of the Lancashire moors, bequeathed to her by a cousin, that she begins to feel safe.

But it’s not so easy to escape the clutches of someone as determined as George, and Emily must draw on all her strength and resources to outwit her cold-hearted nephew.

Dated. And not in a good way

I’ve no idea when this book was written. Sometime in the dark ages I should imagine, judging by the language. The main character, a woman in her mid-fifties, the same age I am incidentally, is constantly referred to as an old lady, Toby who has Down’s syndrome is voiced in a monotone way, a lawyer no one has ever met before moves in to keep an eye on the dastardly doings of the money grabbing baddie (the nephew), the property developers are sneering and cold and insist the sale of the pub WILL go through regardless (although I was always under the impression you could pull out before contracts were exchanged) and when everything comes to a head the phrase ‘we need to make sure the women are safe’ is exceptionally cringeworthy. Ooo and don’t forget the involvement of the ‘not quite’ MI5 agent. Good literature this isn’t. Sexist, ageist rubbish it is
