Walking on The Wild Side in Mallorca Book 6
Life in rural Mallorca continues to hold its magic for Anna and her family.
When not juggling work deadlines, chatting with Johnny the toad or managing her ever-growing menagerie, Anna sets off to explore the lesser-known areas of the island.

While marathon training in the picturesque Tramuntana mountains, she is spooked when delving into the myths and Moorish legends that still seem to haunt the surrounding hills. As she examines the ancient remains of ice houses and huts of charcoal burners, she hears tales of the terrifying brigands that ruled the area in the seventeenth century. And she even finds time to hike the Camino de Santiago along the way…
