    One thought on “Heaven Around The Corner (The Best of Betty Neels)”

    1. This book I thought was a little different from what I've read from her books, the h Louisa I did like and I'm happy that her stepmother was only in a few pages but the H Simon I didn't really like in this book, to me he seemed more 2 dimensional than her usual characters and he would be luke warm for a second or two and then cold to Louisa again.His step sister whom Louisa was looking after was very spoilt and an alcoholic and was magically cured by her lover and there was a few times where I w [...]

    2. Very mixed feelings about this Neels book. The best part was the description of Norway. It really made me want to book a tour - or better yet, move there right away! And I love books that can make me feel like I've been somewhere interesting. Especially if they have mountains and snow.OTOH, I was really uncomfortable with the subplot of the young woman who was an alcoholic for eight years. It had resisted every previous treatment, but now she's cured because she in love. She even says something [...]

    3. Different for Ms. Neels. Yes Louisa is a Nurse (newly qualified and eager to escape the machinations of her hideous stepmother) and takes a post withe the complicated Claudia whose stepbrother Simon is a civil engineer. Interestingly, Claudia turns out to be an alcoholic and she is a horrible person. Not once throughout the book did I feel badly for her. Simon is by turns tactiturn and unpleasant but still in BN fashion Louisa falls in love with a difficult man. Norway is glowingly described and [...]

    4. So this one was unusually bad. The alcoholic villainess is miraculous cured by love. The hero is a grump. It's set in Norway, I think mostly so that there are several opportunities for people to freeze nearly to death. Bleah.

    5. I love Betty Neels, but this one had major pacing and plausibility problems. I read it on my phone, which changes the page count, but at one point when they were still in Bergen, I checked my progress and saw incredulously that the book was already halfway over. And the central couple had already talked at all! What's more, nothing really seemed to start happening until chapter seven, at which it almost seemed like Betty saw her word-limit nearing, panicked a bit, and tried to wrap things up as [...]
