At first, I found this book slightly overwhelming as the descriptive nature of Hannah Fielding’s writing is something that you do not encounter in every book you pick up. Having never been to Italy as an adult, I could not exactly relate to the descriptions themselves as I think you would had you experienced the location yourself, but they are beautiful and they do help you conjure up some wonderful images of locations, art, food, fashion and Italian lovers. However, every word is important and you do need to concentrate. This is not the sort of book that you can skim through; it is mature and it has depth.

The book is also interlaced with Italian phrases and sayings, which I quite liked, but did make me wish I spoke Italian (even though you do not need to speak Italian to understand!).

I have to admit that I guessed the twist, which does not occur until the very end of the book, very early on. To me it was entirely obvious from the way Venetia and Paolo interacted with each other. However, I could not quite work out the mechanics of it. I therefore was not at all surprised when the bombshell was dropped, but in fact, had been waiting for it for some time. However, I should emphasize that knowing this did not make me dislike the book at all. I still enjoyed reading Venetia and Paolo’s journey into each other’s heart.

Ultimately, this is a love story, a story of fate and a story absolutely packed full of passion. The Echoes of Love purely centres on Venetia and Paolo. There are obviously other characters who have their role to play in Venetia and Paolo’s journey, but there isn’t really any other undercurrent storyline.

I really wish I could say that this bodice-ripper type of story telling simply wasn't to my taste but I thought the novel old-fashioned and so description heavy as to be (and I don't use this term loosely) boring.

More of a novella padded out as a novel. The descriptions of everything from the restaurants eaten in and the food consumed therein to the Venetian architecture and the unfailingly beautiful characters were so relentless and overdone that the rest of the story seemed an insignificant afterthought.

It's just as well Chapter one stated the year 2000 as the date as I wouldn't have otherwise been sure of the period in which this was set as the outdated, overly romanticised dialogue combined with a 'subtly proprietorial' hero with an antiquated attitude and a simpering heroine suggested times long gone.

Then there were the odd little monologues - 'Thus fate Fate cast her thunderbolts into our lives, letting them fall with a feather-like touch, dulling our senses to the storm they would cause should we realise their devastating powers' - that though quite beautiful were random and unrelated to any event.

What else can you give a writer who's worked this hard? This clearly isn't some book bashed out quickly with all the usual cliches and stereotypes. This is a book you'll remember after you finish it and want to have on your shelf. This is an author who works hard - who's done her homework, who knows how to write, who's edited well. Breath of fresh air!

This book started quite well. The establishing of the character and the tone of the novel was good, and there were some rather nice descriptions of setting, to uphold the romantic feel of the piece. However, right from the first paragraph clichés slipped in. “Heart skipped a beat.” And a ghostly figure reflected in a mirror that when she turns around is gone. Oh, I thought, I was actually excited about reading a well-written romance with a bit of originality.

Well, it is well written, with excellent formatting and lay out, although I’m not sure why it is brown. I didn’t notice any typos or glaringly obvious grammatical errors. Thinks to self, if I were really into this book, I wouldn’t be talking about how good the layout is in the second paragraph of my review. Yes, I was a little bit bored by this novel.

Hannah Fielding is great at physical descriptions. Her attention to detail is staggering. I did feel that there was perhaps too much description in minute detail, as I wanted the story to get going and not know who eats what and exactly what they eat. Unless pertinent to the plot, such descriptions hinder rather than help. I know the author wants to show us Venice, and descriptions are useful, but practically every paragraph was just a list of what they are eating, wearing and where they are located.

The plot is fairly typical of the genre: girl leaves troubled life behind her travels to the romantic city of Venice and falls for a handsome troubled man with a dark secret past. She likes/not likes him because he is a bit arrogant. They are drawn to each other and…well you get the picture. Venetia and Paolo seemed to gaze at each other for unrealistically long periods of time. Paolo comes across as stereotypical: he is suave and handsome and all knowing.
