Ay they had let Daisy go in Holland was not well done Honestly they could afford it couldn t they have just given Daisy at least a week s notice They already overworked her by giving her only one day off a week no off during the long daysTo me the story dragged on too long in the second half maybe it was to give Daisy time to get over her antipathy towards Valentine which was in reaction to her belief that he disliked her based on their first couple of meetings Val called her igheaded and indeed she was while in Holland and back in WiltonIt was so sweet of Val to arrange things for Daisy behind her back to improve her life situationPoor Daisy so self sacrificing deserved a rich man like Val to cherish her and whisk her away from her hard life This one got a little long in the tooth and there were times the heroine s denseness got tiring but this was uintessential Betty so I had to give it 4 stars After all how many heroines would make a skirt out of old curtains consider working at a Super Minds Level 2 Students Book with DVD-ROM pig farm take on louts and hooligans instead of calling 999 ride a bicycle to and from work watch somebody else s children 24 X 7 and not get mad when they let you go without even 24 hour notice even when they thought you were the best thing since sliced bead I mean really they never heard of severanceayIt took me a few extra days to finish this one but it was well worth the Challenged to Win perseverance It s so OTT I found myself laughing out loud and something I really needed to cheer me upI would only recommend this one to true Betty die hard fans If you re out there and missed this one you should give it a try Dr Valentine an excellentediatrician but not so mannered with adult Kids Draw Knights, Kings, Queens, Dragons patients Or is Daisy misjudging him Not one of Betty s best but certainly not her worstI really don t remember having read this before though I suppose I did as I read almost all Betty Neels books I could get my hands onOur Daisy is young untrained andlain Our RBDRich British Doctor is Dr Valentine Seymour The kids in uestion are the 4 year old twin terrors who call Dr Seymour Uncle Val Plot doesn t really matter because hey it s Betty Neels You know there will be a happy ending We get our happy ending but the journey there was not rettyOnly for die hard Neels fans I had been on a Betty Neel book marathon and read several of her books back to back This is one of themThis again is a hospital romance Doesn t start as one but ends up with Daisy eventually working in the hospital where Valentine is a ediatricianDaisy is the definition is a simple mousy girl who doesn t think very highly of herself and makes do with whatever is in hand literally one of the memorable scenes is where she makes a skirt out of curtainsValentine meets Daisy and there is an instant liking for Daisy from his side This liking eventually turns into love Now here I found Betty Neels diverting a bit from her general story line because I can recall 2 clear instances where Valentine actually openly flirts with Daisy uiet unheard of in Betty s romancesThis is a decent read Not her best and not my favorite but still good enough to make me MDaisy was mystified She could only think that erhaps there was another side to him one that he didn't want her to see.
