Flamenco Baby- Spain book review


Flamenco Baby by Cherry Radford

Genre: Women´s fiction

Pages: 396

In summer in Andalusia the temperatures are high and I was looking forward to an easy read. This Spain book had me hooked from page one as it was just that.

The protagonist Yolande moves in social circles with writers and dancers. The story is split between London and Granada. As a reader we are introduced to the world of Flamenco dancers and spanish guitarists. The prose is fast paced and certainly a page turner.

In the London setting Sadlers Wells provides the setting and in Granada it´s a Flamenco school in the Albaicin quarter where the story unfolds. The plot twists and turns throughout the book. Yolande is desperate to have a Flamenco baby. Sometimes I was unsure if we were in Granada or London but generally the pace of the story kept me very interested in the characters and that didn´t detract at all from the reading experience. I would say that this a great holiday read for a Spain holiday.
