I read Betty Neels books for comfort. This Cinderella story had all the requisite elements, but was really poorly edited. Convoluted sentences, repeated phrases, and grammar errors got in the way for me. Interesting, though, not to be set in Holland.

Dr. Charles Trescombe's opinion of his niece's governess was far from complimentary. Cordelia knew she was plain. She also knew what good manners were, and the high-and-mighty doctor didn't have any! But the Vienna magic could transform even the most unlikely people. Cordelia, to her dismay, fell in love with the doctor, while he soon realized that quiet ways had a way of stealing a man's heart.

Back Cover description: "A rather dull girl...with no looks to speak of." Doctor Charles Trescombe's opinion of his niece's governess was far from complimentary. Cordelia knew she was plain. She also knew what good manners were, and the high-and-mighty doctor didn't have any! But there was magic in Vienna that could transform even the most unlikely people. Much to her dismay, Cordelia fell in love with him anyway. And Charles soon discovered that quiet and unassuming ways had a knack of stealing a man's heart--without him even realizing it.

Overall I thought the book had a very slow moving, mundane storyline. I did enjoy the various tourist attractions mentioned in Vienna, particularly the Schonbrunn Palace and its gardens, and the Gloriette. I also never heard the term "down-at-heel" until I read this book.
