Which Compact to buy?

My wife wants a compact.  I never had one and do not keep tabs on the latest...

What does she need?

1) Quick focusing.

2) Good in-doors - low light.

3) Good or usable flash.

4) It must take SD full size cards - not micro.  I wanted to give my sister and father some SD cards and they have Pentax and Olympus cameras... what a waist!

5) It only needs to take jpg, no need for raw.

6) It needs to be small, so bridge cameras are not an option.

I would like to avoid reading through every compact review, I am not brand biased and we are based in the UK.

What do you suggest?  Thank you.
