Publisher's Summary

When her goddaughter is arrested, Isabel Vernon is startled to discover that the child of her memory has become an overweight, shaven-headed environmentalist and that Isabel herself is now regarded as Emily Frost's next of kin. Emily is then released on bail to the Vernons in the villlage of Fordswick. But her presence in the Vernons' house proves troubling, and is deepening the tensions already within it.

"Even after the final quiet twist, you'll be wishing you could spend more time among Yorke's dexterously skewered misfits." (Kirkus Reviews)

DELIGHTFULLY SURPRISED!

This is a suspense story with a twist. The characters are well developed and the plot kept me interested from start to finish. I highly recommend it.

Loved it!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Set in England, the author successfully captures the everyday world of the characters. A totally engaging book with an intriguing plot. This was my first Margaret Yorke novel and I will definitely be downloading more from this author!
