She knew it was time to leave Determined to break the stranglehold of a selfish stepmother and stepbrother Becky left home She'd begin The Promise Kindle nurs. I have a soft spot for romances and a couple of GR friends who adore Betty Neels so I checked my local library and found like 20 titles Apparently there are still a lot of Betty Neels fans out there 30 plus years after she did most of her writing they even refer to her as TGB The Great Betty So I read through the blurbs of several of her books in the library and picked out two that seemed most likely to appeal to my sensibilities this one and Roses and ChampagneRebecca Saunders is a Cinderella type of character a young British woman who s been living with an abusive stepmother and stepbrother who ve basically turned her into an unpaid slave in their isolated country home threatening to kill her beloved old cat and dog if she doesn t cooperate So underfed and overworked Becky does at least until one day she overhears her stepbrother planning to kill the cat and dog So Becky takes off on her two feet walking several miles to a bus station with cat and dog in tow She gets picked up in the rain by a Dutch doctor Baron Tiele van something or other who ends up hiring Becky who is a nurse to take care of his elderly mother He thinks Becky is an unappealing timid little mouse and she pretty much is though she has a bit of spunk So Becky travels with the Baroness through several countries in Europe with the Baron popping up periodically and of course she falls in love with the Baron even though it s hopeless he has a gorgeous girlfriend etc etc You know where this is going but is the trip worth it Well it depends on your tastes in romancesThis is a rather cute retro type of romance It was originally published in 1979 but truly its style is like something written in the 1950 s or 60 s I confess that I do like old fashioned romances but this doctor nurse romance was a bit too stodgy slow and predictable even for me I read Roses and Champagne as well and it struck me about the same way They both had their moments but as romances go they were pretty underwhelming for meA soft 3 stars I guess TGB isn t my cuppa tea

If you like a cinderella story and you are a fan of Betty Neels then I highly recommend Young Becky is forced into leaving her position as nurse to go home and take care of her evil stepmother and stepbrother Of course both are so evil they force the poor girl into a life of drudgery working for virtually pennies It takes her years to earn enough money to escape but she finally does taking her older dog and cat Our hero a Doctor Baron and Dutch of course what else happens upon her running away in a bitter cold rain He takes pity on her rescues her and sets her up as his mother s nurseThis one is light on the romance and I m not uite sure I totally ever warmed up to the hero but the heroine was such a delight and the story was fun and fast paced it made up for everything else It would have been so much better to get a glimpse into the hero s POV but there were enough hints dropped along the way to realize that he was falling hard for the skinny little mouse There was also a deliciously beautiful OW trying to get her hooks into the Baron that rounded out the fun
