The Cottage #2, in the Secrets of the Shetland Islands series, by Michael Phillips
Loni Ford finds out she inherited property with a cottage on Whale's Reef, one of the Shetland Islands of the North Sea. Her first thought is to sell it. She is pleasantly suprised to find "the Cottage" is not at all what she expected. Most of the islanders believe David Tulloch is the rightful heir and are quite shocked that it is an American woman. There is something about him that doesn't sit well with her. Hardy Tulloch is David's cousin who is backed by oil investors and wants to control the island. Is Loni's life in danger?

When Loni Ford is informed that she has inherited property in the Shetland Islands, she laughs. She wants nothing more than to sell it and be done with it. But when she arrives in the North Sea enclave, she is stunned to find that "the Cottage" is not at all what she expected, nor is David Tulloch, the man most of the islanders believe to be the rightful heir.
The locals could hardly be more surprised that the heir is a woman--and an American. Loni, in turn, finds the islanders quaint and a bit behind the times. Expecting David to be as provincial as the rest of his clan, she discovers that there is far more to the man than meets the eye. And there is something about the peaceful atmosphere of the place--and the character of its most prominent citizen--that soon gets under her skin.
Beneath the peaceful surface, however, change is threatening the island of Whales Reef. David's cousin Hardy Tulloch, whose claim to the inheritance now in Loni's hands was backed by oil investors, has not been deterred in his aim to control the island. But his co-conspirators have plans of their own, plans that put Loni's very life in danger.
