A great novella, with lovely characters and a good plot. The whole medicine/pharmacy thing has made it really interesting, but it was kept easy and straightforward (politics can become rather complicated sometimes in this field). Characters are very likeable, I wanted Rose to be my granny ! The end was totally inexpected, and while all of it is fiction, the whole story is very believable.

I very much enjoyed reading this novella about a big pharmaceutical company battling against a 96 year old lady in the hopes that the recipe for her tonic will make them some big money. I found the story to be well-written and fast paced; it was a gripping read. The characters were very likeable and I loved the twist to the ending.

Hi

Just finished this book, really enjoyed it.

The story is very simple with goodies and badies (large company vs an old lady). The characters are all very strong and the ending is not totally what I was expecting.

Want to say more but can't as it would sort of spoil the story. All I can say is that its really worth a read.

Great book to read over a few cups of coffee on the sofa on a cold winter night.

This was an enjoyable read, with an original storyline. I didn't foresee the ending although the clues were there. It's the first book I have bought to read on my new netbook, and loved how easy it was to do download and read straight away.
It's also the first book I have read by Beverley Carter and I will definitely be looking out for more of her stuff.

This little novella is a gem. I read it in an evening and it had everything I want from a book. Beverley Carter writes very well. The story was intriguing, the characters, in spite of the fact that the work was short, were well balanced. There was a forthright and practical 96 year old, a keen but concerned researcher, an efficient yet sensitive doctor's secretary and of course, the dastardly pharmaceutical industry, bent on profit. The story was well paced and I almost read it at a sitting it was so good.
There is a glorious and satisfying end to this little book too. What more could you want? I would recommend this work without hesitation.
