A Christmas Wish book. Her romances are so genuine her characters believable but not frivolous. She wrote 138 I believe so we are gifted with a few weeks of romantic bliss.

A Christmas Wish book.

Mills & Boon presents the complete Betty Neels collection. Timeless tales of heart-warming romance by one of the world’s best-loved romance authors. Mistletoe magic! For Olivia Harding, the offer of employment at an exclusive private girls’ school had come as something of a godsend. With little experience, she hadn’t expected to find a job so easily, let alone one that still brought her into contact with her former boss, the eminent Dutch surgeon Haso van der Eisler. Of course, his frequent visits to the school had more to do with his goddaughter, Nel, than her own limited attractions.

For Olivia Harding, the offer of employment at a small private school came as something of a godsend.

I am afraid I am spoiled by Betty Neels. When I want a comforting book to read then I always pick this author. I am never disappointed.

Both of these stories have similar plots with different supporting details. Down-on-their-luck women who endear themselves to children with neglectful mothers and handsome/succussful doting uncles. A Christmas Wish had a Sound of Music sort of feel to it. Betty Neals is a new author for me. I needed a few chapters to acclimate myself to her very charming British style of writing. The settings were described in brilliant detail, and the Dutch flavor was very interesting. The characters were all well-drawn and aroused emotion in the reader. Very nice!!!

The two stories in Christmas Wishes, despite its name and the lovely cover art, has little to do with Christmas, so if you want cozy Christmas, looks elsewhere. There's no mistletoe, carols, cozy walks in the snow, tree decorating, hot cocoa, etc. They do have sweet, neglected little girls with the hero as their godfather in common, and heroines who watch over them, but guess that doesn't make for a good title.

The Proposal is the better of the two, although it is only 95 pages in length. Fiesty Francesca Haley must support her 14 year old sister Lucy after their parents died and left them penniless. To do this, Fran works for a crotchety old Lady Mortimer, who tries to make everyone around her miserable. But, Lucy can live in the garage apt with Fran, so Fran puts up with it. Out walking Lady M's dog, she meets Dr. Renier Pitt-Colwyn in the park, and he turns out to be the consultant called in to see Lady M. He is charmed by Fran and finds her a new job looking after a shy, young Peggy, his godchild, whose mother is an actress on tour. Renier comes around often, thus the romance.

The characters are all very well developed and come to life. Renier, who drives a Bentley, is a kind, strong hero and Fran is certainly not a doormat. The secondary characters fill out the story nicely, especially Lucy and Peggy. There's no cozy, romantic dinners, but the story moves along quickly with good dialog. Renier, we see, wants Fran, but never makes it clear to her, so as is not uncommon in Neels romances, the hero doesn't clear up matters, but lets her think he loves someone else for the last part of the book before his sudden declaration of love. 5 stars.

A Christmas Wish features Dr.Haso van der Eisler as godfather to little Nell, whose career-minded mother, Rita, flits about the continent, ignoring the child. Olivia Harding has a dead end job in Medical Records and endures living with her stingy, mean grandmother for her mother's sake. Haso wanders into the hospital basement looking for misplaced records and find Olivia singing. When she loses her job, he finds her another position at Nell's boarding school. Much time is spent on her chores at the school, and the girls must have the cleanest hair in the county. Haso shows up there, usually with Rita. Clearly, Rita has her eye on Haso.

Haso, who drives a Bentley, is a kind, mild hero and Oliva suffers quietly in her misery. Not much romance, but the story moves along and Rita is a very good Other Woman. I give it a generous 4 stars.
