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.
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.
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.
