THE COURSE OF TRUE LOVE’s heroine, Claribel, had more of a backbone than was typically found in Mrs. Neels’ romances. And she was beautiful: a ‘looker’, not mousy, hum-drum or frumpy. Story/Plot: 5 - Having read any number of Betty Neels books, sometimes I remember others more clearly than others. There are times I go looking for a specific book and cannot find it because although I remember the book, I don't remember the title.

This is such a cute, quite quaint love story. Really took me back to how so much can be written into a book without need to add any emphasize on the sexual attraction of a person. This book was based purely on the great interaction between the hero and heroine. It was very sweet romance that was enjoyable to read from start to finish. Would recommend this clean contemporary romance novel.

Basically the book is about a 28 yr old physical therapist. She is beautiful and has her share of admirers. But she is also old fashion and hasn't committed as she has felt nothing for any of her past admirers. She manages to keep her relationship friendly but proper. During book we read about her other admirers and couple dates she attends but like she said there is nothing there and she is just passing time. She does feel like she is letting chances pass by but refused to settle.

Hero on the other hand is older than heroine and a renown physician. He is also described as handsome, workaholic and rude. He helps heroine out of a bad situation and next thing you know he is cutting into her life literally unexpectedly. He does great job in just dropping by and demanding to be allowed into heroine's apartment, life. He is very proper himself but I loved how forceful he was in integrating himself into her life. Presents himself as a friend. Tired and all, he finds time to have meals or outings with heroine. Author does great job of describing how busy hero was with his job but still finds time to meet up with heroine any chance he gets.

Events take pivotal point when hero ask for help with a persistent admirer. He uses this to his advantage to further integrate himself into heroine's life. But, the best part was the climax scene. All I will say is the couple get shook up over a bomb. Yes, a bomb! The way it was explained took my breath away because it reminded me of how events have unfolded since 9-11. Really great scene.

The book continues on well and the ending was great. Hero was brilliant in how he integrated himself into her life by basically forcing himself into attention and pushing heroine past her comfort zone. If things had not occurred how they had I wonder if heroine would have ever given hero a chance. She was very passive in her personal passions, but described as great physical therapist. I found it great writing how author makes their lives realistic and helps us really see how busy people make time to find love with each other. Really great writing. I enjoyed it and would recommend it.

Be aware that the love grows very slowly and majority book is us reading about heroine's day to day life, and how hero inserts himself into it. This is not instant love on heroine's part, or open courtship or open communication. Oh no, hero realized with heroine he will have to let her come to realize her feelings on her own but be sure to be there to guide her along the way. There were some misunderstandings but hero was quick to end those. Really great romance. Would recommend it.

Briefly, part of this is from another review, but will explain my bias a little. [Ok, before I go into my review, I feel I have to be 100% honest with you. I am a huge - make that HUGE Betty Neels fan. I discovered her when I was 10 or 11 years old. Over the years, I have collected every Betty Neels novel ever in print. Even special ordering them all the way from England because I was having difficulty finding them over here in the States.]

OVERALL: 4 1/2 STARS

Story/Plot: 5 - Having read any number of Betty Neels books, sometimes I remember others more clearly than others. There are times I go looking for a specific book and cannot find it because although I remember the book, I don't remember the title. I find this deeply frustrating especially when I have so many books I have to go through just to find one specific book.

This being said, I want to help others like me out there, who are fans of Betty Neels or who are looking for a specific title, but feel helpless lost in the sea of her amazing amount of books. So, I am going to post a brief spoiler at the beginning of her books here in this section in the hopes I can help you find that one book you must read again.

SPOILER COMMENT: First off, the blurb on the book is seriously misleading. Now to the spoiler, our heroine Claribel, who is a physiotherapist rather than a nurse, meets our hero, handsome Dutch Orthopedic Surgeon Marc van Borsele after she has been stepped on, pushed and eventually missing the bus she is waiting for, giving her a ride home and checking her foot out. Our hero also chastises our heroine from accepting a ride from strangers as well as frequently opening her door without the chain on. I will NOT list my favorite part of the book, because if you have not read it, I really don't want to ruin it for you, but it happens near the end of the book ;D Of course, much more happens, but I don't want to spoil it too much for you.

Those of ya'll that are Betty Neels fans know the general premise is a rich handsome doctor falls for a nurse (sometimes she is not beautiful, she might be under appreciated or from a home of privilege but has recently fallen on hard times).

Those of you who are not Betty Neels fans, I highly recommend her works especially if you like Jane Austen or Georgette Heyer. Her romances are usually light, sweet and quick reads (usually no more than 9 chapters).

Highly enjoyable any volume you pick up.

Re-read Value: 5 - High. I always re-read Betty Neels.

Continue Series: - Not applicable unless you want mention that I read all Betty Neels titles.

Characters: 5 - Again, there isn't a hero or heroine I do not like in a Betty Neels title. She always wrote such sweet endearing characters.

Cover: 3 - 50/50. To be honest, if you didn't know who Betty Neels was when you picked up this cover, you might not know it was a romance from the look of it. But prior to her passing and when she did pass, there were a number of her books that were reissued with these more artsy covers. I also have the original cover this was released in paperback, which does say romance.

Genre Fulfillment: 5 - Romance, check.

Personal Involvement: 4 - I am always re-reading Betty Neels, although this might not be a personal favorite, I do highly enjoy it.

This is classic Neels. Girl meets huffy doc (usually a Dutch medical specialist who often is a titled aristocrat in his home country). She doesn't like him yet manages to fall in love with him. He appears colossally indifferent, but manages to fall for her and asks her to marry him. The fascination for the reader is in how the author will get her characters from distrust to infatuation to love. And all women seem to adore Prince charming, even if he starts out as a troll.
