Daughter of Deià

Author(s): Jan Edwards

Location(s): Majorca (Mallorca)

Genre(s): Fiction, Romance

Era(s): Contemporary

When radio presenter Laura Lundon loses the job she adores – shortly after her beloved aunt’s death – things couldn’t get any worse. Until she learns a long-kept family secret.

On discovering she was conceived in Mallorca, Laura faces up to her dislike of foreign travel to visit the Spanish holiday island … on a mission to discover her biological father’s identity.

After gorgeous local photographer Carlos leads Laura to a shocking conclusion, she flees. How does she then find herself in temporary charge of a Mallorcan cat refuge, despite knowing nothing about cats? She copes with litter trays and needle-like claws, but not the wandering paws of the property’s randy landlord.

When Laura receives an eviction notice, the clock is ticking towards the day that she and the refuge cats will be homeless. Can she find alternative premises in time? And will the truth about her biological father bring her the love and happiness she thought was lost?
