Charming story, but flat characters
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No, I would not recommend this book, because the story is very short and the main characters remain flat, which makes the read unsatisfactory.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
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.
What does John Martin Byrne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I was hoping from former review the reader would read with a stronger Irish accent.
Could you see The Empress of Ireland being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
It might, because the story is shortened and flat enough.

If you could sum up The Empress of Ireland in three words, what would they be?
Charming, Upbeat, Sweet
Who was your favorite character and why?
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.
Which character – as performed by John Martin Byrne – was your favorite?
Again, Alasdair. Byrne's interpretation is exactly how I imagined the character would sound and Byrne does a nice job with the Irish accent.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
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.
