A Valentine for Daisy

4.1  ·  Rating Details ·  187 Ratings  ·  8 Reviews
Arrogant, overbearing and dictatorial! What was there to like about brilliant pediatrician Dr. Valentine Seymour? Not much, Daisy Pelham had to admit. Yet, his small patients seemed to adore him. …Daisy was mystified. She could only think that perhaps there was another side to him, one that he didn't want her to see.…

This one got a little long in the tooth and there were times the heroine's denseness got tiring, but this was quintessential Betty so I had to give it 4 stars. After all how many heroines would

consider working at a pig farm
take on "louts and hooligans" instead of calling 999

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 sinc

On my recent reread, I was delighted that Daisy is the heroine who, a la Scarlett O'Hara, transformed a curtain into a dressy skirt. And moreover, the RBD recognized it as such and STILL fell in love with her.

It is also the one where the H strokes the back of the h's neck with his thumb. Hot! Well, for TGB, anyway.

Daisy Pelham is a daycare assistant, but she soon loses this job after a bout of food poisoning. Her mother is loving, but apparently a ball of fluff who cannot manage after Daisy’s f

Not one of Betty's best but certainly not her worst.
I 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 on.
Our Daisy is young, untrained and plain. Our RBD(Rich British Doctor) is Dr. Valentine Seymour. The kids in question 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

A Valentine for the Reader

Lovely story in the best of Neels' style. Would like to meet most of the characters in this story - so real are they drawn.

Dr Valentine an excellent pediatrician but not so mannered with adult patients. Or is Daisy misjudging him?

Recommends it for: Betty Neels fans
Solidly in the Classic Betty Neels category.
Reliably romantic in a gentle way, comparatively speaking.
