This was fun. Very relaxing and so European, it is unique in the strong presence of Petra Delicado. The author creates assertive, sexy female characters, and sensitive, deep male characters, quite a reversal of old roles. I loved a section where Petra is dating a new man and he begins to tell her about his old relationships. She shudders and tries to stop him: a lust-killer is how I think she describes it. Giménez-Bartlett has a confident, true voice that must account for her popularity in Spain. If one is looking for the great Spanish novel, one may need to get out the classics, but this is capable fiction.
