Indiscretion by Hannah Fielding!

(Image found on Goodreads)

A young woman's journey of discovery takes her to a world of forbidden passion, savage beauty, and revenge.

Spring, 1950. Alexandra de Falla, a half-English, half-Spanish young writer abandons her privileged but suffocating life in London and travels to Spain to be reunited with her long-estranged family.

Instead of providing the sense of belonging she yearns for, the de Fallas are driven by seething emotions, and in the grip of the wild customs and traditions of Andalucia, all of which are alien to Alexandra.

Among the strange characters and sultry heat of this country, she meets the man who awakens emotions she hardly knew existed. But their path is strewn with obstacles: dangerous rivals, unpredictable events, and inevitable indiscretions. What does Alexandra's destiny hold for her in this flamboyant land of drama and all-consuming passions, where blood is ritually poured on to the sands of sun-drenched bullfighting arenas, mysterious gypsies are embroiled in magic and revenge, and beautiful dark-eyed dancers hide their secrets behind elegant lacy fans?

"Indiscretion"is a story of love and identity, and the clash of idealsin the pursuit of happiness. But can love survive in a world where scandal and danger are never far away?

Find the description on Goodreads.

It starts off with Alexandra's regular life and that allows readers a chance to realize her normal life and compare that to her life in Spain. It's definitely a difficult journey and one of self-discover. 

I did find that the book was a bit slow. It took me a little while to finish it but perhaps it might have just been the wrong time to read it or I was in the wrong mindset. That doesn’t mean that it wasn’t a great book, the writing was good and the characters were not perfect at all. Which was a good thing.

We were also given the chance by Hannah Fielding to experience Spain without travelling there. The different cultures and celebrations were interesting to see.

The ending of Indiscretion was great! Alexandra and Salvator's story might be a long one but well worth the read.
