It was supposed to be a reunion, a meeting with family she never really knew. A time to reacquaint herself with her father, but when prim and proper Alexandra de Falla arrives in Spain, she finds more than the beauty of the wild and untamed land. She finds the inner passion she never knew she had and the love of a man she can never keep.
The level of description in this book is unique. I found myself setting aside the book several times early on in my attempts to read it because I had other things on my mind and realized I was doing it an injustice by skimming so much – because at least in the early parts of Alexandra’s journey to and arrival in Spain, skimming the potentially optional descriptive passages meant skimming massive sections of the book. So I realized I either had to wait for a time when I was in the mood to slow do ...more

This review is a tough one, because I really liked the was just soooooo long. I mean it's >450 pages! It could have been about a hundred pages shorter.
The book is extraordinarily descriptive, I felt that I could have smelled the dinners, enjoyed the expanse and scenery as though I was there, and drawn the characters from memory, but sometimes it was too much.

This was the first book I read by Hannah Fielding and I really loved it.

We are taken back in the year 1950 London, where a young writer Alexandra de Falla decides to abandon her privileged yet suffocating life in London and move to Spain, near her family. Alexandra longs to be re united with her family but reality is different than she imagines. Her family isn’t the dotting one she expected to find but neither is the thought that she would finally find a place to be herself. She may not have fou

At the beginning, I adored "Indiscretion". The author set the story up very well, described the setting in detail and gave us a lot of information about the culture and history of Spain which I really, really liked. She wrote about everything really well (especially the scenery) and created an atmosphere that was both exotic and strangely familiar... and it captured me. Everything was described in great detail and was very interesting. Since the story is set in the Spain of the time of Fraco, th ...more

INDISCRETION is an intense read. From the Spanish landscape to the homes, to the people to the relationships, to the entertainment of the bull fighting ring.
The passion between Salvador and Alexandra runs deep. Although she couldn't understand his intermittent aloofness towards her, she loved him unconditionally. Salvador would go from talking to her, being passionate toward her to totally ignoring her and not even acknowledging her presence at times.

With Hannah Fielding’s latest novel, she has pulled it off again. I was waiting for her next book and wasn’t disappointed. This time, she takes us to Spain in 1950, and I could almost feel the heat of the Spanish sun on my face and hear the sound of flamenco guitars as I was reading.

The writing here is just as atmospheric as her previous book, The Echoes of Love, and I loved Indiscretion even more because of the magic she weaves in bringing this vision of Spain alive: the wild and colourful gyp

It's 1950, and a British woman and novelist is going to meet her family in Spain for the first time. She's twenty-five and though she writes about love, she's yet to experience it herself. Her Spanish family the say the least. They are wealthy; they tolerate a wild group of Gypsies on their land; and all the women are terrible bitches, it seems, except Esmeralda, who is just a coward.

And Alexandra is just thrown into the middle of all their drama--the drama pretty much surround

‘Indiscretions’ is the story of Alexandra a young woman who decided to embrace her half Spanish heritage and goes visit her father’s family in Spain. Set in the fifties, this is a story about a colorful, passionate and traditional culture and a woman who in the middle of it all, has to discover herself and love.

This romance is about more than love, it’s about the choices we make to be the person we want. The characters have to discover what they really want and how far they are

Un-put-downable romance just like they used to make

Indiscretion is the third Hannah Fielding book which I have read and I must say it does not disappoint. It has all the hallmarks of the author’s style: vivid, transporting descriptions, magical locations, danger and intrigue and of course unbridled and unashamed romance. I can honestly say that I picked it up and wasn’t able to put it down until I had finished the last page - and then I was tempted to start it all over again!

I read Fielding's novel The Echoes of Love about a month ago, and unfortunately I didn't enjoy it. As a result, I was hesitant to start Indiscretion.
But I'm happy to say that it was a lot better than TEOL, even if I still didn't love it.

This book intrigued me at first, as most romances do, and I wanted to see how the author’s take on a fiery Spanish romance would pan out. Indiscretion follows the journey of writer Alexander as she travels to Spain to meet the family she’s always dreamed of knowing. After her parents moved to England when she was a child and then her mother died, she had always wondered what her Spanish family were like.
The problem I had with the novel is that it never engaged me at all. I never cared what happe

There are so many things to discuss when it comes to “Indiscretion”, starting with how amazing this book looks and finishing with the lovely story it contains. I have loved every page! Being a lover of all things Spanish, it was quite predictable I would enjoy it.

When it comes to the content, the blurb says it all. It is a combination of fighting for love and finding oneself in the process. Alexandra de Falla goes in search for her Andalucían roots and answers an invitation from her father to me

Wonderful romance - an absolute must-read!

I decided to read Indiscretion on holiday and couldn't put it down once I had started. The passionate love story between Alexandra de Falla and Salvador de Rueda is set in 1950s Spain. The magical surroundings under the strong, sultry Spanish sun are magnificently captured by Hannah Fielding. Despite the many obstacles the protagonists must face, I found myself desperately willing them to be together.

I really liked the plot, the descriptions of Andalucía were amazing. I visited this part of Spain while reading the book and it was just magic.
I enjoyed the initial set up of the romance, but as the story evolved, it frustrated me. I struggled a little to understand why Alexandra loved Salvador, besides how devilishly handsome he is.

Alexandra is a writer living in London who embarks on a trip to Spain. While there, she is entranced with the country, a pretty nu e'd change from the boredom of home. She meets Salvador and absolutely falls in love. Unfortunately, love doesn't always come easy. This is actually the second novel I have read by Hannah Fielding. I have loved both! She builds such an amazing story that you can't help but be taken in. The romance (and indiscretion) is timeless.
