Rating – ⭐️⭐️
Unfortunately, this book just wasn’t for me. The majority of the time, I’m a very character-based reader. If I liked the characters, I could give a book 5 stars even if it moved at snail pace. And the characters in Casting Dreams are just very…flat.
Mirela has dreamed of the same man since she was 6, just after her parents died. She sees the same man, and always the same fate; his death.
When Connor comes to Ireland, Mirela literally runs into him (why do I never run into the man of my dreams??). It’s all very insta-lovey, and they make plans to go to dinner the same day.
I also felt like it was very clear that the author wasn’t actually from Ireland, what with the language that was used. Apart from saying ‘Aye’ a lot, there were a lot of Americanised terms used.
I’m going to end on a positive note, though, and say that I thought the ending was quite sweet.
