Love Story: Letters from the Past
It made me cry!
I loved this game! Once I figured out what was going on, I let everything go just to see the ending. I skipped lunch, didn't answer the phone and raced through the final frames. A sad, sweet, lovely story. The mini games were fun too. Some of the clues in the game were odd but the hints button works and there are no penalty. The clues I am talking about are the pairs of things you have to fine which seem arbitrary. Also a few language glitches. I've never heard of the expression that things will "fan out" it's "pan out" but once I clicked I clicked the trusty hints button. I really romantic game I will play again!

What a beautiful story!
This one absolutely was one beautiful, romantic story as well as a great game. Loved looking for items to "fill in the blanks" on the scrapbook pages, have never seen this type of puzzle before and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very well developed game, it almost played out like a movie or a good book with some surprising twists! Such a refreshing change from the usual hidden object psychological/horror stuff, which I do enjoy, but this one was a very light, refreshing change of pace and as mentioned a very well done story for people who are romantics at heart. You will absolutely LOVE this game. Graphics and music excellent. I hope to see more developers do this type of game.

The title caught my eye which lead me to check out the demo. So different than the dark, sometimes gritty mystery/suspense games I usually play but in a good way.
Includes a fair amount of HOS with a tad bit of a twist to the norm. Not very challenging but what it lacks in challenge is made up for in art and story. A few of the scenes appear more cluttered, making it difficult to find the smaller items that are listed.
Love Story: Letter From the Past is a melachony telling with a nostaglic appeal. Help the character Mary tangle through the mystery behind her late husbands love letters he'd written in the past but for whatever reason they never made it into Mary's hand.....until now. Soon after the day of Mary's husbands funeral, Beth, the comly, loyal nurse whom had been taking care of John departs, but I believe she has alternative motives, however that's when my trial ended.
This was a nice change in the usual BF genre of games. It's bittersweet as you help Mary navigate her new life without her loving husband John, while trying to figure out if the person she had trusted with her husband's care may have a dark side to her caring demeanor.

A gentle delight..
I thought this was a sweet story and I wanted to find out how it ended. I thought the mini-games were quite entertaining, varied and imaginative for such a gentle HOG. The game was not hard but not boring and had many more chapters than I expected. Was pleased to discover that finding the letters was only a quarter of the chapters and it continued on.The music was lovely and quite a surprise since there was not as much repetition as you find in most games. Not a really challenging game but sweet and relaxing.

One that grew on me
I did the trial of this ages ago and never even finished the hour! Then for some reason I decided to at least finish the allotted time and ended up buying it! Why?
Because it is different to the usual run of the mill game.
Because it is gentle and romantic.
Because no matter how old you are love can win.
Because although it has sadness it is not macabre or evil.
Because one day when I need something "feel good" I will play it again,

Not as Good as Beach Cottage, but still Satisfying
I really loved the Love Story: Beach Cottage more but I think that is only because the ending was a little longer and rewarding. This one feels almost anticlimactic at the end and the resolution is way too short...disappointing. But I loved the music. The settings were also beautiful and fun with an added scrapbook feature that makes this game a little longer to play and that's nice. No puzzles of any kind, sort of a bummer. But overall I am happy I played this game, really liked it and beg Big Fish to make more in this series!!!

A sweet game
This is a very sweet, romantic game with a nice story. It's a happy-ending sort of game, and isn't really dark like many hidden object games out there. (Which is a plus for those out there who don't care for the darker ones.) It also has a nice blend of hidden object scenes and mini games.
That being said, it's not extremely challenging, but the story helps make up for the challenge this game lacks. The lack of challenge and the story make this a good game for someone who enjoys hidden object games but wants something more relaxing. The graphics and music are pleasant, and it's a nice length as well. Overall, it's a sweet, pleasant game that I'd recommend.

Good little story
liked it very much, but the graphics were bad, and very hard to make out the items, this caused me quite a bit of eye strain!
Having said this, it's still a sweet game for us romantic ladies to enjoy,
