A perfect story by Betty Neels - 4 1/2 STARS Briefly, part of this is from another review, but will explain my bias a little. [Ok, before I go into my review, I feel I have to be 100% honest with you. I am a huge - make that HUGE Betty Neels fan. I discovered her when I was 10 or 11 years old. Over the years, I have collected every Betty Neels novel ever in print. Even special ordering them all the way from England because I was having difficulty finding them over here in the States.] OVERALL: 4 1/2 STARS Story/Plot: 5 - Having read any number of Betty Neels books, sometimes I remember others more clearly than others. There are times I go looking for a specific book and cannot find it because although I remember the book, I don't remember the title. I find this deeply frustrating especially when I have so many books I have to go through just to find one specific book. This being said, I want to help others like me out there, who are fans of Betty Neels or who are looking for a specific title, but feel helpless lost in the sea of her amazing amount of books. So, I am going to post a brief spoiler at the beginning of her books here in this section in the hopes I can help you find that one book you must read again. SPOILER COMMENT: First off, the blurb on the book is seriously misleading. Now to the spoiler, our heroine Claribel, who is a physiotherapist rather than a nurse, meets our hero, handsome Dutch Orthopedic Surgeon Marc van Borsele after she has been stepped on, pushed and eventually missing the bus she is waiting for, giving her a ride home and checking her foot out. Our hero also chastises our heroine from accepting a ride from strangers as well as frequently opening her door without the chain on. I will NOT list my favorite part of the book, because if you have not read it, I really don't want to ruin it for you, but it happens near the end of the book ;D Of course, much more happens, but I don't want to spoil it too much for you. Those of ya'll that are Betty Neels fans know the general premise is a rich handsome doctor falls for a nurse (sometimes she is not beautiful, she might be under appreciated or from a home of privilege but has recently fallen on hard times). Those of you who are not Betty Neels fans, I highly recommend her works especially if you like Jane Austen or Georgette Heyer. Her romances are usually light, sweet and quick reads (usually no more than 9 chapters). Highly enjoyable any volume you pick up. Re-read Value: 5 - High. I always re-read Betty Neels. Continue Series: - Not applicable unless you want mention that I read all Betty Neels titles. Characters: 5 - Again, there isn't a hero or heroine I do not like in a Betty Neels title. She always wrote such sweet endearing characters. Cover: 3 - 50/50. To be honest, if you didn't know who Betty Neels was when you picked up this cover, you might not know it was a romance from the look of it. But prior to her passing and when she did pass, there were a number of her books that were reissued with these more artsy covers. I also have the original cover this was released in paperback, which does say romance. Genre Fulfillment: 5 - Romance, check. Personal Involvement: 4 - I am always re-reading Betty Neels, although this might not be a personal favorite, I do highly enjoy it.

I think this is one of my favorite of Ms Neels' books. Real characters, and just plain good reading.
