A Valentine for Daisy

Arrogant, overbearing and dictatorial! What was there to like about brilliant pediatrician Dr. Valentine Seymour? Not much, Daisy Pelham had to admit.

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

Solidly in the Classic Betty Neels category.
Reliably romantic in a gentle way, comparatively speaking.

Sweet as always. Classic Betty Neels
