    Fast-paced romance in a beautiful setting

    An American in Venice is a short novella within Dreamspinner’s World of Love series. Each story is standalone and written by a different author, and I’ve found them mostly fun and fairly unique. I love to travel and learn about different places and cultures, and this series gives me an opportunity to do that while trying new and different authors. As far as getting to experience Venice through a character’s eyes, I thought An American in Venice was great. The author does an excellent job weaving the tourist experience, Italian cultural elements, and the inside scoop on famous locations into the storyline, even sprinkling in some Italian phrases for additional authenticity. I really liked the contrasting views of Venice through both Tom’s tourist eyes and Giovanni’s experience as a local, it was a unique way to present a more complete picture. Unfortunately, the romance between Tom and Giovanni did feel a little rushed. I would have liked to see a more natural start to relationship rather than the forced, overly convenient way the two meet and suddenly get together. I think this is where the length of the book worked against the romance. There simply wasn’t enough time to see that attraction built, and my investment in the couple suffered for it. However, as I did like the story arc and writing overall, and this was my first title by Mr. Domani, I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to read more by him. I think fans of books set in different locales may enjoy An American in Venice. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*
