REVIEW ï E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ø Betty Neels

Ting giving up her own nursing job for a while seemed ideal Her new employer had two partners One was elderly and friendly like himself while the other was younger andnot uite so. I can always leave it up to Betty for a pleasant enjoyable read Giles seems to be younger in age than most Betty s physician dutch heroes He is not in tuned to Cressida s feelings as we usually expect from Betty s lead male character There is an OW and some misunderstandings to the nature of their relationship
