The album did not chart. gave Love Letters this review:

Every Julie London album before Love Letters has something to recommend it for fans of vocal pop and jazz or lounge music, but this 1962 release is for London completists only. Love Letters isn’t a bad album, but it is a dull one, with boring orchestral charts and a track listing that seems thrown together. … Thankfully, London’s next release, Sophisticated Lady, contained a better selection of songs and proved that she could do a worthy orchestral album.
