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.

A wonderful read! The characters were wonderfully loveable. The descriptions of the house and town were so rich that I was able to quickly picture of the setting in my mind. Effortlessly heartwarming and compellingly mysterious, The House on the Shore is one audiobook I recommend.
