      This one was fun Definitely a different twist to what I am used to from Betty The heroine had tons of spirit and refused to allow the good doctor to get away with too much Betty didn t weigh her down with all the usual tropes There were wonderful descriptions of the Highlands and the fierce vitality of the land I loved the old conniving professor who was a matchmaker in disguise Our hero falls like a ton of a bricks from the very beginning and I enjoyed watching him eventually cave into his feel [...]

      3.5 stars sigh Reading Betty is such a pleasure It s like floating in a big blue pool of water, with the sun shining on you, sipping a cool glass of lemonade She was exactly the break I needed after reading two asshole, physically abusive heroes, with the gentleness of her h s and their chivalry and politeness GOD I love Betty.I m very conflicted about this book I didn t like the first part all that much, but I loved loved loved the ending One of the most beautiful and satisfying HEAs in Neelsla [...]

      4 Stars The two Professors, one an elderly Englishman and the other a younger handsome Dutchman, were busy planning their trial clinic for asthmatic patients and the last on their list was the nurse they would need As the clinic was to take place in rural Scotland, and all others would be men, they pondered the thought of hiring a male nurse Looking at the list, none were available, and then there was Eliza s name, and to the younger professor it sounded to describe the no nonsense tall and buxo [...]

      I like a nice bowl of Betty Neels porridge as much as any romance reader, but this one was not one of her best The heroine Eliza goes to work for the hero, in a nursing capacity of course and he s a Dutch doctor professor who spends a great deal of time in the UK of course At some point, on a thin pretext, she has to go spend time in the Netherlands so we can all see his extreme wealth of course There is much suspense LOL over whether his engagement to a snooty Dutch woman will lead to poor Eliz [...]

      You d think a sweet, 1950 s style, old fashioned romance wouldn t be a guilty pleasure, but I don t often confess how much I love many of Betty Neels books.But there are times when stock characters and familiar plots are extremely comforting.When I m sick of being competent, tired of being wholly responsible for fixing everything and keeping my world afloat, and I want a Cinderella story, I turn to Betty Neels When I don t want to get depressed over what an awful wimp I am at the moment, I reach [...]

      Professor Christian van Duyl and Professor Wyllie need a nurse for their asthma research project Because he is engaged to a very correct young woman, Christian wants to hire an older, motherly sort of nurse, but all they have to choose from are names They select Eliza Proudfoot and send a letter to her hospital, inviting her to come to Scotland where the research will take place.Eliza is 29, blonde, blue eyed, petite and beautiful She finds Christian very handsome, but he treats her rather coldl [...]

      This book has all the usual Neels elements, but with a bit of a twist Nurse Eliza meets RDD Christian when she goes to work with him in the Scottish Highlands She recognizes that he doesn t really love his fiance and decides, for everyone s happiness, to try and show him this Of course she falls for him herself However a visit to Holland shows her how rich he is and Eliza realizes she wouldn t fit into his world Can he change her mind A sweet story where everyone ends up with what they wanted al [...]

      Cute, tame romance Ward Sister, Eliza Proudfoot, goes to work for two Professors Doctors in a special medical clinic One of the Professors, Dr Christian van Duyl is a somewhat intimidating character and somehow Eliza keeps getting on his bad side, which doesn t stop her from falling in love with him Unfortunately, the esteemable professor is already engaged to the very suitable Estelle van der Daal Eliza finds Estelle to be somewhat of a bore and not at all suitable for Christian, but if Estelle [...]

      I know I read this years ago but didn t really remember it 3.5 4 stars really, the heroine was a little too annoyingly spunky for me in the beginning but she calmed down admirably I loved the descriptions of the Scottish highlands and the hero was attractive, and the older doctor and minor characters were fun points to Betty also for sparing us the tropes of big misunderstanding or evil Other Woman, which I appreciate

      I m not the biggest fan of the ones where the Hero and heroine are antagonistic to each other, I much prefer the ones where they are friends I also thought this would be a slightly different book, it SEEMED like there was a confession of love on both sides, halfway through the book, only to be entangled by his damn engagement That would have been an interesting read, different from the average Neels plot, but it went back to the usual almost immediately.

      In general classic Betty Neels I was pleasantly surprised at the slight twist on her usual formula , but it was a really nice change.

      When a man finds his way, Heaven is Gentle The title is derived from this quote by the hero, Christian van Duyl during his profession of love for Eliza.I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story the weeks in the Scottish Highlands as the doctors run their research and test in the camp of sorts, and then the weeks in Professor Wyllie s home and then Christian s gorgeous home in the Netherlands The settings are always beautifully described but especially so for Christian s house and surroundings.It w [...]

      Aspects of this book s structure reminded me of Cassandra by Chance, but without the second half unevenness of that book From a narrative standpoint, the plot s better than some and involves both a novel medical premise and setting at least for the first half or so Perhaps due to the strength of this, the Scotland section moves along pretty briskly.On the character front, though, I m less sure what to make of the doctor s romantic entanglement and how he handles it I kept thinking of The Fifth D [...]
