The setting is glorious; I hoped for more description. The characters which could have been so much more, in terms of goals, motivations and conflict, were one-dimensional. Almost like the author figured writing romance was easy. Let me tell you, Miz O'Boyle: it aint. Suggest you go back to the classroom and absorb the basics of Goal, Motivation and Conflict; Character Development; and Show Don't Tell. This book could have been so much more. Too bad the author chose the easier, softer way out.
