    One thought on “An Innocent Bride”

    1. I know the reviews are a bit middle of the road on this one, but I really enjoyed it. It had all my favorite trops.Rich and kind doctor √Conniving and beautiful other woman √Innocent, kind and loving heroine √Heroine not afraid of hard work and getting her hands dirty √Small town setting √But there were some differences that made this one so much fun!Hero is smitten right from the start and you know it.Hero is onto other woman and doesn't fall for her plans.Hero constantly plots and ma [...]

    2. Dr. Simon Glenville, a consultant haematologist, is driving his Bentley through the English countryside when a speeding motorcycle barely misses him. He finds a girl, Katrina Gibbs, sitting in the road whose bicycle has been mangled by said motorcycle and she is cut and bruised. Dr. Glenville helps her up and takes her home to Rose Cottage where she lives with her Aunt Thirza.That would be the end of that, except that a short time later Aunt Thirza is rather ill and when her doctor finds that sh [...]

    3. This is one of Betty Neels later books. She gave up writing nurses for the most part. I suspect this is because as time went by she lost touch with current nursing practice. Katrina is living with her aunt who took her in at twelve after the death of her parents. With no money to speak of, she doesn't have an opportunity to train for a job or go to university so she remains in the village helping out her aunt more and more as time goes by.She meets Doctor Simon Glenville by chance when a motorcy [...]

    4. A fun vacation re-read; I remembered liking this one first time I read it but didn't remember much, so thought I'd give it another go. The nice features about this sweet, gentle little Neels, as other reviewers familiar with Betty's favorite plot devices have noted: beautiful, kind-hearted, hard-working heroine, the usual handsome, rich doctor hero, the usual conniving attractive other woman - but the pleasant surprise here is the hero makes his interest plain early on AND doesn't fall for the O [...]

    5. I would've given this book 5 stars except for the fact that I felt it was rushed a bit through the ending. I suspect that she was trying to fit this particular title into the Harlequin "Wedding" series and had to add pages about the wedding which most of her other books don't contain. Most of her books end at the proposal, unless it is a marriage of convenience. I feel that Neels has written many more detailed and more satisfying stories than this one. I did like the way that even though the sto [...]

    6. A very gentle little Neels book. We have our spunky, beautiful, good-hearted heroine (Katrina) who is, alas, not trained for anything(through no real fault of her own) who finds herself way down on her luck after her Aunt Thirza dies. A nice, Rich British Doctor (Simon) falls for her and a very subtle courtship ensues. With the requisite fly in the ointment of a scheming young woman doctor (Maureen).Not great Neels, but not awful. A nice read, enjoyable but not memorable.

    7. Dr. Simon Glenville comes to the rescue of Katrina Gibbs, in more ways than one. Drawn to the gentle beauty of this sweet country girl, Simon finds himself in love, but unable find if his feelings are returned.Katrina finds Dr. Simon Glenville to be a little daunting. The rough treatment she and her aunt have given him would have run off an lesser man, but Simon keeps reappearing, especially when Katrina is at her lowest.A very sweet tale.

    8. I rather like that this one is different for a Betty Neels. The hero tells the heroine he loves her with several chapters left to go, and although the heroine wonders a bit whether she might have misunderstood him, there's no big drama between them after that. It was rather sweet. We also see a few (slightly dry) pages of wedding planning and the wedding, which was more fun than the usual 'kiss and one more line, now it's the end of the book'.

    9. Okay, so this book is a perfect example of why you shouldn't judge a book by its cover! The title is so lame and the picture is even cornier BUT I loved the story! It was absolutely delightful! I enjoyed every minute of it!

    10. I liked how the hero knew he loved the heroine from the start and how he didn't get fooled by the scheming woman.I also liked how this book went right through the wedding! It didn't seem as abrupt an ending as most Neels books.

    11. Another Betty Neels: young woman of limited funds, no family, and limited future befriended by a doctor of that certain age and guided to True Love.

    12. Typical betty neel s that why it is so enjoyable!I am a long time betty fan and her writing is as warm as toast ! Love all of her books this one the heroine is not a nurse but the story is sweet and satisfying!

    13. Very niceI like all Betty Neels stories, they are feel good romances and always have a happy ending for the good guys.
