GIVEAWAY – 3 copies of Haunted Magpie set in MALLORCA

7th March 2021

We are delighted to offer 3 copies of Haunted Magpie by Anna Nicholas, a mystery set in MALLORCA.

And very pleased to say that this giveaway is open worldwide!

3 copies of Haunted Magpie

Eccentric, headstrong and engaging, Isabel Flores Montserrat is a cross between a highly charged Precious Ramotswe (The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency) & Phyrne Fisher (Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries).

When 33-year-old Isabel Flores Montserrat quits a promising career with the Spanish police to run her mother’s holiday rentals agency in rural Mallorca, it seems that her crime-fighting days are far behind. Basking in the Mediterranean sunshine with pet ferret, Furo, she indulges her passion for local cuisine, swimming in the sea and raising her pampered hens. However, when a young florist goes missing, Isabel is once again seconded by the National Police to help solve the mystery. Meanwhile, trouble is brewing in her own village with a sinister spate of animal disappearances. When another islander vanishes, Isabel and the local police chief, Tolo Cabot, must hunt a potential serial killer using their unorthodox investigative skills. With the clock ticking, they urgently need to find answers and restore harmony to the island once more.

    I’d love to wander around Almudaina Palace in the shade and eat seafood and drink local wine… but to be honest after months of lockdown it all sounds pretty spectacular

    Tumbet-a Mallorcan type of ratatouille was a memorable part of a meal, as was their local wine- but away from the coast the roads and scenic mountains are fabulously scented with thyme and rosemary. An island paradise.

    I would love to sit by the pool with a good book, a cocktail and some amazing tapas. But for now I would settle with a good book!

    I don’t know much about Mallorca apart from it being a mass market holiday destination, but I’ve heard that away from the resorts it’s a very beautiful place so i would like to explore off the beaten track.

    I would love to return to Mallorca – this was my first holiday abroad years ago. I’d love to go back to Palma – all I can remember is travelling on a very crowded bus to get there! I can’t remember anything that I ate!

    My daughter & I took the lovely little train ride from Palma to Soller while the other girls shopped.
    Beautiful rural scenery, & so peaceful.
    We ate bread, cheese & olives & drank beer with the locals in a small bar before heading back to the city….magical!

    I’d like to visit Palma. I went there as a child but I can’t remember much about the place so I’d love to revisit it as an adult! As for the cuisine, I’d like to try Mero a la mallorquina as I like fish and vegetables.
