Charming story, but flat characters
No, I would not recommend this book, because the story is very short and the main characters remain flat, which makes the read unsatisfactory.
The storyline takes a jump from the beginning of the main character's holiday to the end of the Ireland holiday. This is a missed chance to tell us more about the characters, their history and to develop their relationships with more depth. Well, what else shall I say, Nora Roberts describes the ups and downs of a romance far better and with more detail.
I was hoping from former review the reader would read with a stronger Irish accent.
It might, because the story is shortened and flat enough.
Charming, Upbeat, Sweet
Alasdair, the pub owner. He was charming in a natural and warm manner. Straight off, you know he's not a man who plays games with a relationship.
Again, Alasdair. Byrne's interpretation is exactly how I imagined the character would sound and Byrne does a nice job with the Irish accent.
The book drew me in right away and had me cheering for a happy ending from page 1- the end. I highly recommend the story.
