Mayhem in Mayfair and Mallorca



Mayhem in Mayfair and Mallorca

Having moved to rural Mallorca to escape the stresses of London life, Anna continues to commute back to her PR agency to earn a crust. But she is harbouring a bizarre dream to open a luxury cattery on the island – unbeknownst to her long-suffering family.

Life in the mountains is never uneventful, as she gets to grips with phantom sheep, midnight snail hunts, and Catalan lessons. London also has its challenges, as she juggles eccentric, rich and often-neurotic clients between Mayfair and Manhattan and is hotly pursued by clients offering her lucrative deals. But increasingly, Anna finds herself craving the simple life of her Spanish idyll because as she discovers, you can take the girl out of Mallorca, but you can’t take Mallorca out of the girl.

Wickedly irreverent, funny and lovingly observed, Cat on a Hot Tiled Roof celebrates the wonders of Mallorcan rural life.
