Was delighted to find a novel based around flamenco dance in English - (a rare thing) and snapped it up quick! I read this witty flamenco 'romp' in 3 days (and nights) when I really should have been doing other things. The storyline keeps you holding on for the outcome and if you are a flamenco student or dancer, the details of the Granada school experience (and London if you have been to one of the numerous classes there), will be gobbled up like a good plate of pulpo! Amusing but with some thought provoking themes if you are female and not full-blooded Spanish, it teasingly makes you wonder if your romantic notion of the flamenco lifestyle is best kept a dream or a lost opportunity. Cherry Radford is an excellent dialogue writer and makes you feel like you're almost in the conversation. A cheeky, fun read with a good bit of 'oomph' to hold your interest if you dance or not. I am saving 'Men Dancing' for my summer break in Spain and I'm looking forward to it.

I bought this having enjoyed Cherry Radford's first novel, Men Dancing. As I said in my review of that book, it's not my usual sort of thing as I tend towards crime fiction and sci-fi/fantasy. Also as with the previous book, this was a breath of fresh air and a welcome contrast to my usual reading.
The story is a gentle, if slightly out-of-the-ordinary, romance set against the backdrop of a lady with a wealthy gay friend who treats her to dance and theatre-based treats as "consolation prizes" whenever her other relationships flounder. I was easily drawn into her wishes and fantasies and empathised with her desire to succeed at her first flamenco dancing lesson. (Even though I've never danced a successful step myself!)
The action moves abroad and the romance develops apace in several directions. The story is not a simple matter of wish fulfilment though and has its share of sudden shocks, told in a simple and believable manner that feels true to life. It shows that even the most exciting of experiences or simplest of pleasures can change in an instant. There are several moments that made me think "would that actually happen?" but the storytelling was entirely convincing in each case.
I think I'll conclude by repeating what I tried to convey in my previous review, as it certainly applies here too. Although marketed as a dance-based romance, with promotion heavy on the flamenco imagery, this is a romantic story that all readers will enjoy. I look forward to the next tale.

Format: Paperback
'Flamenco Baby' is a really engaging story, pulsing with raw emotion, humour and the appealing if flawed personality of its central protagonist, Yolande. The lively plot, largely set in the here and now, shifts intermittently to the past in some memorable scenes from Yolande's childhood, and in a neat Anita Shreve-like touch, it briefly brings in characters and events from Cherry Radford's earlier novel 'Men Dancing'.

With its colourful cast, this is an entertaining read that in many ways mirrors its subject matter: lyrical, expressive, dark in places, beautifully composed and choreographed. Well worth a spin.

This novel is set in the world of flamenco between London and. Granada, Spain.
I got hooked on this book quite quickly, the fast pace of the prose kept me turning the pages.
The protagonist Yolande is surrounded by musicians dancers and writers which makes for some interesting scenarios. Desperate to have a child she is looking for a father for a flamenco baby.
The plot twists and turns and the ending is was unexpected.
The world of flamenco is reflected well with sadlers wells and Sacromonte appearing often throughout the story.

Cherry Radford's enthusiasm for dance is passed on in this colourful story of life, love and music. Let yourself be swept away by the Flamenco rhythm as well as enjoying the dry wit used to bring the characters to life. I stood on the bylines during the dance classes and was even tempted to try some of the steps myself. An exciting and passionate book - I look forward to reading more from this author.
