    I couldn't give this one five stars It should've been a great story and might've been if it had been 20 pages longer I though the romance was too rushed and didn't make sense Our hero spent time with the heroine's teenage sister than with the heroine They were both very strong characters and didn't get along very well misunderstandings of course I would've liked to see the gradual development of their relationship that Betty Neels is so good at It was like she was cut off here

    35 Would have given this 4 if not for the too short endingOverall I like both the Professor and Mary very much We also have three matchmakers here their respective sisters Polly and Pleane plus Fred the housekeeper I especially enjoyed the close friendship Roel had with Polly who was 13 going on 30 So wise and precocious While Mr and Mrs Pagett were likeable and pleasant they were virtually useless as parents They lived in their literary and artistic worldif not for Mary and Polly both of them could not survive dailyThe Other Woman Ilsa was two dimensionally btchy; knowing Roel would not marry her she cut her losses but that did not stop her from messing with Mary's head at the endI really wish the ending love confession could have been longer I want sweet loving moments between Roel and Mary SPOILERS The manner in which Great Aunt Thirza died was shocking Like in one sentence they were talking about her recovery and the next she died in her sleep She was rather nasty in donating most of her fortune to charities when her nephew and Mary were the ones who looked after her and were definitely not well offIt was funny how a big deal was made in the beginning about her being a vegetarian but when Mary went to see Great Aunt after her heart attack Mary suggested fish for the old lady and she was ok A blooper moment like the missing red Laura Ashley dress or the brother who was never mentioned though both the heroine's parents died Cannot recall the titles of these bloopery books ha

    I really enjoy Betty Neels romances because they’re universally simple and incredibly basic stories There’s something in the repetition that appeals to me and really what about romance is not somewhat repetitive the comfort and enjoyment is in knowing that it will all end well And in this like many of Betty Neels’ stories the major conflict is not one to have you on proper tenterhooks it’s of a sensible unreuited love by an eminently sensible heroine and a sort of emotional out of touchedness by a somewhat aloof but competent and helpful hero The lack of extremes of emotion make this really nice and comforting to read in periods of emotional stressIn this book rich Dutch Doctor he “works in hearts” Roel meets Mary when she brings in her belligerent elderly aunty to see him Mary is the perfect homemaker and she’s had to be because her parents are beyond hopeless and ridiculously out of touch with the world to the point of you wondering whether she raised herself and how they can be so utterly useless and casually irresponsible leaving Mary to sort everything out and face the conseuences Anyway Mary falls in love with Roel at first sight by Roel seems indifferent and anyway he has the nasty Ilsa waiting in the wings and he seems primed to marry herI thought this was fine and expectedly old fashioned but generally unproblematic as these things go I’ve been enjoying the experience of listening to Betty Neels in audio being that I’ve read pretty much all her books multiple times in ebook and print formats I liked this one

    This is a pretty typical Neels book Our heroine has two nice but clueless parents leave all the finances shopping housekeeping and managing to her She has a younger sister and they get along well but there's almost no money and the father's inept money management mean that our girl must work to pay the family's bills She starts as a mother's helper to a nasty woman who neglects her two young monsters then the intervention of our RDD allow her to start working in a bookshop with a lovely old man who teaches her about booksMy complaint about this story is that the heroine was so passive she didn't have any personality at all On the other hand the RDD is a good man who takes care of homeless people in his off hours I liked that he didn't immediately fall in love with the heroine though he was intrigued by her It was fun to watch them not like each other until they realized they were in love There is a snooty OW and a few family members but mostly it's a story about the heroine her younger sister and the RDD Nothing really stood out but like most of Neels books it was a fun way to spend a couple of hours

    So in this one the inevitably useless mother makes a living painting Christmas cards She has earned enough to purchase a hut where she goes to paint As in mother's in her hut Or go out to mother's hut and tell her dinner is ready There's something fundamentally hysterical about the word hut

    It was OK but a 2 12 star there wasn't enough to make it uniue It did adore the servants and the younger sister but I seriously got into despise territory wthe parents Their selfishness really grated on me Neels is just too forgiving
