Betty Neels (born 15 September 1909 in Leyton, England – d. 7 June 2001 in England) was a prolific British writer of over 134 romance novels (first publication entirely for Mills & Boon in United Kingdom and later reprinted in the North America . . 7 June 2001 in England) was a prolific British writer of over 134 romance novels (first publication entirely for Mills & Boon in United Kingdom and later reprinted in the North America by Harlequin), beginning in 1969 and continuing until her death. Her work is known for being particularly chaste.

  • (3.5 stars) English author Betty Neels (1909-2001) wrote 134 romances for Mills & Boon and Harlequin from 1969 to 2001. Her books are very formulaic so it's better not to read many within a short period of time. Space out the reading and the stories will seem quaint, wholesome and charming. These books were contemporary romances when written, but they seem like a look back at a very different,almost unrecognizable time.

    I'd never read any when they were recently published so don't know what impression I would have gotten by reading them then, but in 2015 as I read this one about Henrietta which was published in 1975, the story, its characters and the way of life seem to be from the 1950s, not the 1970s. Perhaps my recollection of life in the 70s is faulty, or perhaps Neels was living in the past as she wrote her contemporary romances.

    Whatever the case, this is a sweet and simple romance about an English nurse, Henrietta Brodie, in her late 20s, who gives up her life in the U.K. and moves to Amsterdam when an aunt dies and leaves a small home and small amount of possessions and money to her. She ends up butting heads with a handsome, rich doctor, lord of his very own castle and 'ruling lord' of the whole village and surrounding area. He's autocratic, controlling, perhaps a bit moody and tightly buttoned up as far as revealing any of his thoughts or feelings.

    She thinks he doesn't like her and there's even an Other Woman, a young, devious, spoiled Dutch woman he has been semi-courting before Henrietta came to town. Unfortunately, Henrietta starts to have feelings for the slightly jerky guy and is sure to be headed for heartbreak. A tragic event in the area shows Henrietta for the calm, cool, capable, caring nurse and woman that she is and contrasts her with the useless OW but even that doesn't seem to change anything in his relationship with Henrietta. What's with the guy anyway?

    Of course, eventually all will be well but the hero is a bit frustrating. I read another Neel book after this one and apparently that's par for the course. She has stock characters and changes their names from book to book. Still, her books make for a pleasant read when you want to go back to a different, more innocent time.

  • I don't normally read books from this era which was apparently set during the 1970's, however, not realizing that fact, I assumed it was during a much earlier time. At any rate, we have our heroine, Henrietta Brodie, a late 20's spinster who enjoys her job nursing in England but very willingly gives it up when she learns she has been left a cottage in Amsterdam along with some funds by an aunt she thought was long dead.

    Henrietta very quickly gives her notice and travels to her new home only to learn that although she does have life time rights to the cottage, it is a type of lease owned by the local "lord" who is a tall, abrupt, often ill mannered surgeon by the name of Marnix van Hessel. They form a somewhat tenuous relationship which the reader will immediately understand is, in part, based on a strong and vital attraction between the two.

    If I had any sense of frustration in the storyline, it was van Hessel's ongoing relationship with a young woman named Loes to whom he was obviously planning to marry. Loes was a spiteful young girl of nineteen and although van Hessel was in his 40's, he couldn't read her true character. Henrietta was very capable of dishing it out to van Hessel when he was rude and even to Loes when she thought she could antagonize Henrietta. However, our heroine wound up doing quite a bit of moping over the fact that van Hessel was apparently sucked into Loes' obvious attractions and yet blind to her "detractions" which were obvious to every other female including van Hessel's own mother.

    Still, it was a fun and enjoyable read on this quiet, autumn day here in California.

  • I happen to love Reading Betty Neel's books. Yes, they are all very dated. Yes, they all follow the same formula and plot and she uses almost the same characters (different names - of course). And, if she was writing today, I would suspect a publisher would toss these book into the slush pile; however with all that said, I do enjoy reading her books because they are a very sweet romance story. She writes of a Holland/England that doesn't exist anymore and perhaps never did, except for in her books. After a long day working in front of a computer screen reading what others have written it is nice to just escape into a well told narrative story!

  • I love all the old fashioned sweet romances by Betty Neels. I read them all many years ago and am now reading them for the 2nd and even 3rd times on my Kindle. She wrote them all on a formula. Usually a romance between a Dutch doctor or professor and an English young lady. There is always some type of conflict that has to be settled before the happily ever after. No violence and no sexual content.

  • Book Description: An Unexpected Inheritance! When Henrietta was left a house in a Dutch village, she decided to make her home there, and settled happily into her new abode. She thought she would like everything about Holland -- except Marnix van Hessel. As "lord of the manor," he behaved as if it were still the Middle Ages! Why couldn't he just marry his fiancée and leave Henrietta in peace?

    This is another nice Dutch Doctor/British Nurse story. I enjoyed the story, but did not enjoy Henrietta's character as much as some of Neels' other heroines. Marnix, the castle, scenic descriptions, etc. made up for it making it enjoyable.

  • Completely different characters and story line compared to a lot of her other stories. Fresh and fun and very close to my home town

  • The most active conversations I have read of Neels novels. Enjoyed the characters’ personalities and how they are expressed in the story. Continue to admire Ms. Neels’ ability to write romance stories that inspire good attitudes about life in general. I would recommend this book!

  • Bteey Neels' writing is always enjoyable when one is wanting a light read that will entertain without offense. That will sound bland and boring to some, but in today's climate of graphic violence and sex I often need a respite, and these books provide exactly that.
