Contemporary, romance - chick-lit
On the death of her aunt, Holly inherits a cottage in rural Scotland. In her will her aunt said she hoped Holly would follow her dream of becoming an artist, but if she didn’t want to move to Scotland the next door neighbour - Duncan McCall would inherit the property. Holly loved the cottage and was determined that nobody was going to chase her away, but she didn’t know how difficult it would prove to be.
During lunch she tried to envisage what it would be like living in Struan. When she'd stayed there as a child she had thoroughly enjoyed it, but that was when her aunt was alive - now it would be quite different. Would she be able to make a success of painting? Was it merely a pipe-dream? Was she chasing shadows?
