LoveReading View on Haunted Magpie

Really enjoyed this book. I felt I was part of Bel's life in Sant Marti getting to know all the locals and solving crimes. A young florist suddenly and unexpectedly goes missing and a spate of unexplained pet thefts sees Bel, a former detective inspector, brought back in to help the local police force track down the culprits. Attention to detail is amazing, I couldn't read fast enough at times to see what happened - I can highly recommend this book and hope to read more of Anna Nicholas' work.

Haunted Magpie Synopsis

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 a young florist vanishes at night, the only evidence found is a tiny wooden heart. With nothing else to go on, Mallorca's police chief calls upon unorthodox former detective, Isabel Flores Montserrat, to help.

But a second disappearance confirms a connection with a series of sinister cold cases. Suspecting that a serial killer has resurfaced, Isabel races to uncover the link between past and present, the meaning of the wooden heart, and the identity of the culprit.

Meanwhile, trouble is brewing in Isabel’s own village with a spate of mysterious animal disappearances. Could it all be connected?
