My book has Mallorca in it!!
« on: October 03, 2011, 14:34:44 PM »
For all of you that like to read a good novel I am just coming to the end of a series of 4 books 2 of which mention Mallorca. They are by an author called Jessie Keane they are Martina Cole type books. Basically East end gang stuff based in 70's.
They mention the Taramantua Mountains. They are quite close to PP aren't they or am I completely wrong?

Good gritty books though if any of you like a bit of crime and gore.  :)

I cant find the mountains as you have spelt them WS, but if you mean the Tramuntana Mountains then yes indeed, they are ones in Mallorca. Book sounds interesting - will have a look for that one, thanks!

Oh, didn't mean to point it out as a spelling mistake Paula, just wanted to be sure it was the right mountain range!  :)

Paula, should they read in any particular order? Am about to order them and she does have a few listed, so don't want to buy the wrong ones!  ???

Yes they do.

1. Dirty Game

2. Black Widow

I bought these first to see how i liked her as I heard her stuff was like early Martina Cole. But I was hooked and ordered the other 2.

3. Scarlett Women

4. Playing Dead

They are all about the same woman..

I always worry suggesting books as its quite a personal thing isn't it.

Not read a book with Majorca in it, but fully prepared to write one after I finish the novel I'm just starting on now about hotel life.
I assume that means I'll have to spend a certain amount of time out there to fully immerse myself in the life. Oh dear, the hardship!  ;)

This is the first I've written. Attempted it a couple of years ago, but the hotel life I was trying to write about got in the way.
Will give it another go through winter. Imogen Edward Jones wrote about a five star hotel, mine is the other end of the scale, with a few different three star places I've worked in. I have seen some pretty mental stuff!
I also have a photography website and need to pay some serious attention to editing my images for the stock photography website I belong, so I can see it being a busy old winter!
