Read this for a theme potluck in my online reading group, The Reading Cove. March's theme was "Green."
This was a trite Harlequin formula romance. The tension and "misunderstandings" between Lucy and William (before they FINALLY got on the same page and united) were so contrived it was painful. Like most of these formula's, the plot could've been a tad more intelligent. Feels like they're written for an adolescent mentality.
Unlike her two bright, go-getting sisters, Lucy's goal was to find a man she loved and settle down with him to a life of happy domesticity. But Mr Right seemed peculiarly elusive. . .
nice, fluffy romance
Betty Neels had a successful career as a nurse, and when that ended she had a successful career as a writer, with a total of 134 books. She was writing at 90. We lost a great writer in June of 2001, but her books live on as a legacy.
Lucy (Lockitt), as in the nursery rhyme, was the youngest of three daughters. Her sisters both had great careers and plans
of marriage, while all that Lucy had was work at the local orphanage. That's where she met the available Dr. William Thurloe. She had dreams of marrying him, but he was always with
another woman. Could she get what she wanted, or would she always be the child who lived at home with her parents?
Unlike her two sisters ,Lucy was happier at home-if only she could find Mr. Right to share it with.! But when she had almost given up her search for a man, the eminent pediatrician William Thurloe came into her life. Attractive and dynamic,he was the answer to her dreams.But why would he be interestedin her when the glamorous Fiona made it clear she was also available?
