Matilda had every quality that turned a man's head, but she had remained heart-whole and fancy-free despite a number of offers. Then she met eminent surgeon James Scott-Thurlow and fell in love at first sight. But James clearly did not feel the same way. How could he when he was already engaged to the glamorous Rhoda?

Recommends it for: Betty Neels fans
Slightly different approach to her main female character, but the overall storyline is classic Neels.

Warm fuzzy, gentle, comforting could apply to most of her writings fir Harlequin

Too many coincidences for it to get 5 stars but a lovely book. Some wonderful beach scenes.
