Read from April 15 to 16, 2012

In her memoir, Susan McKinney De Ortega displays a very simplistic style of story-telling that’s quite descriptive. There were not too many embellishments or an over-telling of the story, just a light-hearted, and sometimes emotional, delivery of anecdotes. I loved how she described the streets of Mexico and its people. Her prose is elegant and honest. Holding nothing back, she gives her opinion of the good and bad of Mexican culture and how she dealt with it.

I love stories, especially memoirs, where the main character evolves from beginning to end. In her story, Ortega comes to terms with her Western life and her Mexican life. She learns that you can’t control every detail in life and most importantly; you can't control with whom you fall in love. She learns how to battle the pain of her past, present, and future and how to find her path in such a male-dominated society. Flirting in Spanish is a heart-warming tale of love, life, loss, and discovery. It’s a great read for just about everyone, but especially for those romantics at heart.
