The Legacy (Secrets of the Shetlands) by Michael Phillips

Book Description:  Loni Ford's unexpected inheritance of substantial real estate--not to mention a title--in the Shetland Islands has caused more than a stir in the quiet fishing hamlet of Whale's Reef. How is life ever to be the same with an outsider--and a woman, at that--playing such a pivotal role in the life of this conservative community? But it isn't just the locals who have deep misgivings about the current situation. Loni herself never imagined this in her wildest dreams. 

What Loni is more sure of, however, is that she is falling in love--with Whales Reef, with its hardy people, with its simple, peaceful way of life, and with local chieftain David Tulloch, whose inheritance she has usurped, at least in the eyes of some. 

But life in Whales Reef is not without drama. Deep rifts exist between certain lifelong residents, and when one local resident turns up dead, suspicion is cast in the direction of the island's most prominent family. How Loni and David deal with this challenge will go a long way in determining their future, and that of the quaint island community.

My Thoughts:  I love this book cover... there is something so romantic about the sheep, the fog, the couple and the house/estate in the distance.
This the dramatic conclusion to Secrets of the Shetlands.  So be sure not to miss the other two books because one really needs to read the first two books to understand all that is going on in this dramatic conclusion.
Lone Fors had an unexpected inheritance and a title that goes with he inheritance.  But, remember, the "natives" consider Loni and outsider.  So how can an outsider play such a great role in their community?
Of course, Loni begins to love the people and Whales Reef. So, when one of the locals turns up dead it seems that Loni and David will have to deal with this problem too.  
The community is not quite to the trusting place yet.  So Loni and David have more than a challenge on their hands they have a murder.
This is a wonderful and, yes, dramatic conclusion to a most satisfying trilogy!
