Mary Stewart,

Stormy Petrel: The gripping classic that will keep you on the edge of your seat
 
 

A gripping, nail-biting adventure set in Scotland, from the original queen of romantic suspense

Total heaven. I'd rather read her than most other authors' Harriet Evans

When Rose Fenemore takes a desperately needed holiday to an isolated cottage on the Scottish island of Moila she doesn't expect much in the way of adventure - just a few quiet weeks of writing, walking and bird-watching.

And then, late one night during a wild storm, two young men appear in her doorway, seeking shelter from the wind and rain. Neither man is quite who he claims, and the question of who to trust will put Rose in grave peril . . .
