Back Cover: "A Perfect Wife ?
Everyone in her family had agreed that Mary Pagett would one day make some man a perfect wife. The problem was that the only man Mary had ever even thought about marrying was eminent Dutch heart surgeon Roel van Rakesma.
From the moment he had walked into her life Mary had become quite contrary - turning from a practical girl into a hopeless romantic. But it had been clear from the start that any attention Professor van Rakesma paid her was purely professional. Professor van Rakesma's only interest was in curing frail hearts, not broken ones !"
This is one of Ms. Neels' most charming books. I have read in over and over with enjoyment. The characters are first rate and all lively and divine in their own right .... from the battle ax old Aunt to the loving but clueless parents to the fashionable selfish woman suitor to the two teenage sisters who assist in any way they can ! :) Enhancing this clever and entertaining tale is the fact that the eminently practical Mary, a selflessly compassionate daughter, much to her annoyance falls in love at first site with the Professor, who is a little slower on the uptake.

Betty never fails. She is the mashed potatoes (with butter) of comfort reads.
