Publisher's Summary

Terror haunts a remote Scottish Glen. Heartbroken Anna MacDonald leaves Edinburgh to find peace at the edge of a Scottish loch. Safely ensconced in her late grandmother's cottage, she can finally heal her heart and write the novel that has burned inside her for years.
Her peace is short-lived. When debonair artist Luke Tallantyre's yacht gets stranded in the loch, he seeks help at the nearest residence - Anna's croft. She finds him annoying. He instantly dislikes the stunning, but cranky hermit.
But there's indisputable evidence that a hit man is on the prowl in the village. Is he after Anna? And what is Luke keeping from her that could deepen the danger? Against their wills, they join forces and embark on an adventure neither ever imagined... including a chance at true love.
The House on the Shore is written in British English, using standard British spelling and grammar.

mysterious highland romance

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this audiobook version , it is lovely romantic story filled with suspence and mystery.
The author writing draws you into the true feel of the remote part of the Scottish highlands in which the story is set.
I like the characters good and bad and the fact that you where never quite sure who the "bad guys" where until much later in the plot.
To my non scottish ears, Ruth Urquhart did a good job of the narration and scottish words, bringing authenticity to the book.
thumbs up from me .

I was given this audiobook in return for an unbiased reveiw.

Any additional comments?

I was lucky enough to recieve a copy of this from the author and I thoroughly enjoyed it and am very grateful to the author. I would say that there were the occasional word which seemed incongruous in a book about Scotland (e.g. tailgate, sidewalk) which I associate with American fiction, and the narration seemed a little slow in places but all in all it's a great book and I would definitely recommend it.
