Costa del Churros – Isabella May

The blog tour for Isabella May’s latest book, Costa del Churros, comes at the perfect time as I find myself sat by the pool, sipping my cafe con leche and enjoying a pain au chocolat in the sunshine. I may not have located the nearest churreria just yet, but I am a girl on a mission. Anyway, enough about me, here’s all the info on the book.


The rain in Spain doesn’t mainly fall on the plain…

Brits abroad Belinda, Julia, Laura and Georgina need more than the sweetness of churros with chocolate dipping sauce to save them from their unsavoury states of affairs.

Cue Carmen Maria Abril de la Fuente Ferrera, the town’s flamboyant flamenco teacher! But can she really be the answer to their prayers?

One thing’s for sure: the Costa del Sol will never be the same again.

Costa Del Churros Cover


I have read all of Isabella’s books and her writing goes from strength to strength with each new release. If, like me, you are a returning fan, I am sure you will be pleased to see a familiar face from The Cocktail Bar popping up in the cast of truly relatable characters in this book.

Costa del Churros tells the tale of four very different, but equally dissatisfied, ex-pats who are thrown together in a flamenco class led by the wonderfully flamboyant Carmen, but although flamenco and churros feature heavily, there is so much more to this book than that.

Costa del Churros is a warm, funny story of each woman’s rediscovery of themselves and their dreams, and the importance of having great friends cheering you on from the sidelines. It is an inspirational book that makes you feel as though anything is possible and that your own dreams are achievable with just a little bit of faith.

I can’t wait to see what Isabella has up her sleeve for book four!

Isabella May lives in (mostly) sunny Andalucia, Spain with her husband, daughter and son, creatively inspired by the sea and the mountains. When she isn’t having her cake and eating it, sampling a new cocktail on the beach, or ferrying her children to and from after school activities, she can usually be found writing. As a co-founder and a former contributing writer for the popular online women’s magazine, The Glass House Girls – – she has also been lucky enough to subject the digital world to her other favourite pastimes, travel, the Law of Attraction, and Prince (The Purple One). She has recently become a Book Fairy, and is having lots of fun with her imaginative ‘drops’! Costa del Churros is her third novel with Crooked Cat Books, following on from the hit sensations, Oh! What a Pavlova and The Cocktail Bar.
