In No Need To Say Goodbye, we have Louise Payne, a night nurse who is holding her family together after the death of their parents. She is beautiful, capable, and willingly sacrifices her desires in order to give a better life to her siblings. Inheriting a cottage outside of London, she is surprised to find that it is just down the street from where Dr. Aldo van der Linden lives. Outside of work, they have barely exchanged pleasantries.
But, soon Aldo is helping them, giving them rides in his "sleek and powerful" Jaguar XJS to the cottage and finding a job for Louise's pretty 19 year old sister Zoe. And, since he goes that way nearly daily, he gives Zoe a ride to work, and sometimes back home. Before long, Zoe is calling Aldo or stopping by his house, and Aldo is inviting the family to tea and a party. Because of this, Louise thinks Aldo has his eye on Zoe. Despite his being nearly twice Zoe's age, Louise decides he would be a good husband and that she will do what she can to further the romance between Zoe and Aldo...even when she herself falls in love with Aldo.
Thankfully, there's no evil woman to keep the hero and heroine apart. There's no need since Louise manages to do that all by herself as she is oblivious to Aldo's attention and Zoe's attraction to a co-worker. She tried my patience as a reader as much as she tried Aldo's. Still, it is a good story and Aldo is a kind hero. It is the typical Neels romance where the hero could sort out her muddle with a couple of sentences, but doesn't. I wish there had been more romance, though. Aldo tries, but it takes two. Not Neels' best, but good for a lazy afternoon at home or at the pool.
There's a lot of action going on including a good bit of travel, dinners, and even an emergency. As always, no sex or anything objectionable.
