      Betty Neels loves to make her heroes bide their time as her heroines figure out just why it is he annoys her so much They then spark irritation and frustration and totally misunderstand each other, making for some fun reading.In this one, Cressida has recently lost both her parents during a flu epidemic and has decided to take a break from hospital nursing in favour of private cases A job in Holland comes her way as a typist to an elderly doctor writing a book And this puts her in the realm of G [...]

      A typical Neels with nurse Cressida getting a job in Holland as a typist for an elderly doctor writing a book While there, she meets Giles van der Teile and of course makes some hasty judgements about him which she later realises are wrong There is the usual Neels style Other Woman and Giles is so busy being enigmatic you want Cressy to run off and marry someone else just to shake him up Well not really but he would deserve it.

      Like this novel As usual, as the author is Betty Neels, the romance was very sweet This novel was not about marriage in convenience which happens a lot at Neels novel But I did really appreciate the heroine of this novel, who did the first to express her feeling for the hero.Well life was not easy, and this was happening to Cressida Both her parents died in few days time, first was her father and 2 or 4 days later was her mom.In order to relieve her feeling, she accepted a job in Holland, even t [...]

      gile Ini buku pertama terbit tahun 58 Tapi ceritanya emang bener bener keren Tokoh ceweknya, perawat yang berhenti sebentar dari profesinya, cari suasana baru untuk mengobati kesedihannya, dengan menjadi typist sekaligus editor bagi seorang dokter yang sedang menulis buku Cressida gadis yang agak judes dan bermulut tajam Piawai nyetir mobil hingga sering harus mengantar majikannya kesana kemari mengunjungi pasien Sang hero, dokter Belanda yang ganteng dan menyebalkan Tapi seperti karakter hero b [...]

      I can always leave it up to Betty for a pleasant, enjoyable read Giles seems to be younger in age than most Betty s physician dutch heroes He is not in tuned to Cressida s feelings as we usually expect from Betty s lead male character There is an OW and some misunderstandings to the nature of their relationship.

      Reread 5 23 17 Adding to the PP references Giles actually quotes JA to Cressy Happiness in marriage is only a matter of chance, then he says he does not agree with Jane.Also, Giles, like Mr Darcy, makes an awkward, unsuccessful marriage proposal at 75% At least Mr Darcy expressed passion Giles didn t.Cressy has to apologize for having mistaken Giles concern for Monique for love, like Lizzy apologizes for believing Wickham s lies First, I ll give TGB points for the title, which comes from a Jane [...]

      Betty Neels has a way with words and continually provides excellent, sweet stories that are a delight to read.More likeable and realistic characters portraying the events that lead to a love we all seek but few find.Well written and with perfectly described surrounding, the events unfold in a simplistic style that leaves me wanting to read another one of her cherished stories.

      Meh, it was okay Not one of my favorites However, the two elderly doctors were just darling.Cressy and Giles romance didn t make much sense She realizes she s in love with him while he s still being horrid to her He does the typical Betty hero thing of telling the heroine that he s found the woman he wants to marry, without telling her that she s the one Idiot In the meantime, everyone else, including his mother, is promoting Monique as his intended No wonder Cressy doesn t fall into his arms An [...]

      Not a favoriteNow I know why I ve only read this one once beforeCressida and Giles are both stuck on their high horses and refuse to speak to each other, I got tired of the never ending misunderstandingsce supporting cast of two elderly doctors and their housekeeper, though.
