In the end it's a love story with a very satisfying dose of URST, which there is just not enough of these days. An impossibly handsome hero whose perfect torso is regularly displayed and a beautiful heroine with very pretty dresses who is in an unresolvable situation.....have I got you in yet??
You have to understand that I don't commit to these things flippantly, but a cross between Downton Abbey without the boring, self-righteous characters (except for Granny) and Pride and Prejudice with way more passion was a guilty pleasure that was too irresistible.
It became a bit of a joke with my family. "What's Mum doing?". Rolled eyes and "Spanish hotel drama..."
All I can say is sorry and don't say I didn't warn you.
And a couple of interesting podcasts:
S town - from the makers of Serial, another fascinating American story
Trace - I've only just started this but apparently it's great....the true story of an unsolved crime set in Melbourne
