Feeling a little under the English weather of late and in much need of a sunny holiday, I scrolled through audible to find something with warmth and humour to cheer me up!
Fiestas and Siestas... hmmmm sounds lighthearted and fun !!
There were only a couple of reviews, one was not good ... going on about the terrible Spanish accents of the reader etc and one seemed to enjoy, so I decided to try it.
I am so glad that I did as I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with the Cuthbertson family. I found this book a joy to listen to, a warm, whitty, wonderful escapism, I shed a tear and empathised at the loss of a parent, the emails from the daughters tickled me, and reminded me of my own children's escapades !! The authors interaction with the locals and their customs made me laugh. On the whole this writing was an uplifting read. Please, please Alan Cuthbertson and Family, invite us all to ur next Fiesta, would so love to read more of how you are all viviendo la vida en Espana. Oh, and by the way, I have studied the Spanish language and owned a villa in Spain, the accents by the narrator just added to the warmth and fun of the storytelling, made me smile and lifted my spirits even more. Thanks for the tonic

Fabulous work and you've done it!! (Again!!)

So much goin on in this story thought was usual romance but had little touch of thriller tale to it too, thoroughly enjoyed it couldn't wait to keep listening, narrator was really easy on the ear.

Ivy Lane.... A lovely warm escapism
