Grabbing mallorcan life by the horns

Life is never simple for PR consultant Anna Nicholas as she attempts to cut loose her ties with London for a more mañana existence in rural Mallorca with her family. Despite nearing her dream to open a cattery, she is thrown off course by the abduction of her beloved toad, a scorpion infestation, getting lost in the hills and a growing fixation with ancient goats.

Meanwhile in London she’s coping with loopy new clients – an amorous rock climber, a Bulgarian transvestite couturier and a couple of warring designers. Witty, pithy and brimming with memorable characters, Goats From A Small Island is Anna’s third book about working between two places and a delightful tribute to Mallorca’s rich and varied way of life.
