He Had Me At 'Olé': A Rollicking Tale of Socially Awkward Passion, Patatas & Polka Dots (Paperback)
A jaunty Spanish sojourn with a side of sherry, shawls and shoes.
When a striking male flamenco dancer singles Stacey out during a showstopping tour of Australia, she decides to throw herself hook, line and castanets into the rhythmic heart of Spain. After making a spectacle of herself in Barcelona, Stacey stomps her way around Seville before journeying to Jerez to attend a coveted workshop with the divine dancer himself.
From bizarre buskers to bodegas, pickpockets to pata negra, Stacey falls quickly and clumsily into the country's exotic embrace where her inability to roll her 'r's, savour siestas or enjoy olives ensures there is never a dull momento.
Set against the beguiling backdrop of flamenco, food and fate, He Had Me At 'Ol ' is an endearing travel tale bursting with passion, humour and heart ... and more anxiety-laden interactions with smouldering Spanish men than you can poke a stick at. Ol
