Feb 05, Marina Maidou rated it really liked it. A very nice story which reminds me Rosamund Pilcher’s or Maeve Binchy’s novels. I enjoyed a laa romance, full of mysteries and cute describes of Corfu and as a Greek who travelled there I found them very real, not nicison the greek bulletin “sun-sea-souvlaki”and a nice end without the usual panic who writers have after a pages novel to end it in a page and who cares about the reader who finds suddenly nothing in the end.
I would like more books from this lady! That said it was easy to read and generally engaging. I have to admit to finding the dialogue maty tedious however, nobody talks like this; the characters when conversing would need to sit down in turns due to how long the other person takes to say their bit, and everybody is so earnest in everything they say. I enjoyed it however and thought the characters interesting minus the page long soliloquies they somehow use to converse.
Sep 19, Toast rated it it was ok. Blimey it was long! Thank God they had a Greek idyll to rest in. I can’t believe how badly behaved some of the characters were. I sound like a headmistress when I say that. Veneiana honestly a bit beyound the suspension of disbelief. Een beetje een simpel geschreven boek maar misschien komt het door de vertaling vanuit het Engels?
Een of twee verrassende wendingen maar soms caas langdradig.
Ga nog een boek van nickwon proberen te lezen. Dec 19, Dorien rated it did not like it. Mar 24, Sandra Richardson rated nickxon it was amazing. What an excellent read, tears by the bucket load!
En realidad 2,5 estrellas. Feb 10, Catsalive rated it liked it Shelves: An enjoyable read, if a bit too long – at pp. Very easy to read with some interesting characters. All a bit simplified, but entertaining nonetheless. May 12, Beadyjan rated it really liked it. This has been on my bookshelf for ages and I’m so glad I finally read it. Its a romance but the issues faced by the characters are quite heavy so prevent it from being a light and fluffy holiday read, in fact its quite intense.
There are really two romances involved and all centre around the Venetian House which isn’t in Venice its in Corfu where a lot of the book is set, making a nice marg read.
La casa veneciana / The Venetian House : Mary Nickson :
Well written and very enjoyable and I’m looking venecaina to reading the authors other book Secrets and This has been on my bookshelf for ages and I’m so glad I finally read it. Well written and very enjoyable and I’m looking forward to reading the authors other book Secrets and shadows which I also have. Oct 26, Anne rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this story, my first by the author. Two love stories, one modern, one from the past and both linked to The Venetian House which is on the island of Corfu.
Simple and elegant, the writing really captures the essence of Corfu – the unspoilt and very Greek Corfu not seen by the tourist. Alongside the love stories are the subjects of divorce and bereavement – very sensitively written and seen through both adults and children.
Maybe a little heavy on the coincidences, but this doesnt sp I really enjoyed this story, my first by the author. Maybe a little heavy on the coincidences, but this doesnt spoil what is a very enjoyable book. Aug 08, Kirsty Dummin rated it liked it. Though the main plot is meant to be about the house at Vrahos, it’s really about the relationship dynamics between several characters and how they respond to the various challenges of the venecianaa.

Aug 23, Maia rated it it was venecianx Shelves: This is almost straight Romance with a block R, Harlequin style, in a more s vein–again, Sheepshanks writing as Mary Nickson concentrates more on formula and romance than on character development and her characters here are also more formulaic and wooden, less intriguing and offbeat.
I loved this book, a modern family novel based in both the UK and Corfu. Wonderful writing, excellent characterisation from an elderly grandmother down to six-year-old Jake.
Moving in places and almost impossible to put down. I really loved this book Apr 09, Penny Allibon rated it liked it. Feneciana novela sobre la amistad, el amor y las relaciones familiares. Dec 06, Toni rated it liked it.

I enjoyed the romantic plot and the setting at Corfu but had to encourage myself constantly to continue reading as the whole book was too longwinded. Lorna rated it it was amazing Aug 08, There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
