Simple and sweet, I can understand how Betty Neels can be a turn-off for some readers and beloved by others. Her stories can be a tad formulaic but there's something sorta simple and easy going in her works.

A Christmas Proposal 4 Stars: is a classic Cinderella story with the evil step-mother and beautiful evil step-sister pushing around the somewhat plain Cinderella - Bertha whom happens to be very kind-hearted but gets stepped on by her step-mother and sister. Then at a party she meets her Pri

I always love Betty Neels books. They are guilty pleasures. There is nothing particularly special or spectacular about them, and they are simplistic in every way. Yet, I still enjoy them.

Contains two previously published books.

A Christmas Proposal is a real Cinderella story. Poor Bertha has a nasty step mother and sneaky, vain stepsister named Clare. Her father is absent for work and she's at the mercy of these two. For some reason she catches the eye of rich doctor Oliver Hay-Smythe. Though some of this story is really unlikely, there are enough of the details Neels does well to make it fun to read. Length-wise it felt like a novella. 2.5 stars

Winter Wedding is a full length no

A great Christmas read and feel-good book. There is no sex in Betty Neels books, but it's a very sweet romance.

In "A Christmas Proposal" Bertha wins the heart of Oliver. Having been stuck in the shadow of her beautiful step-sister, Bertha never dreamed she could be treasured as Oliver grew to treasure her.

In "Winter Wedding" Emily works thru the daunting task of taking care of her twin, baby, niece and nephew, as well as caring for her teenaged sister. Working as a nurse adds to her problems, but hearing Renier state that he believed her to be a plump, plain, prim miss and wanted a blonde who could grow

Another wonderful Betty Neels' read

I discovered my first Betty Neels' book two years ago and have reread it several times with enjoyment! I love this one too and have just reread it for the third time. This is another feel good story with romance and humor! I recommend her books ti everyone!

After binge reading a bunch of Betty Neels books, I am reminded why I like her old fashioned, rather chaste romances. Filled with all things quintessentially British, these romances are fun, light-hearted reads.

First story: 5stars. Manipulative, cruel stepnother and stepsister. Very sweet hero.
2nd story: 3 stars. Horrid younger sister; elder sister's twins' babysitting; H out to make her jealous. Did not like that :(
Overall, 4 stars. Let's round that up to 5 ;)

Betty Neels was born on September 15, 1910 in Devon to a family with firm roots in the civil service.
