5.0 out of 5 stars Not the Usual Dutch Doctor - British Nurse Dec 29 2006
By Louisiana Lady - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
SUCH A GOOD IDEA...FROM THE MASTER OF THE HOUSE. Meg was an old-fashioned girl. She'd been happy to stay quietly at home, looking after her invalid mother. Now the family home was up for sale. Things looked bleak until the new owner of the house Ralph Culver, offered an ideal solution; Meg could stay on as his housekeeper. Meg found her employer was a difficult man to understand. But he was an easy man to love, even if there was no hope of being loved in return...

This Neels story deviates slightly as rich, good-looking Doctor Ralph Culver is British, while plain, kind, unskilled Meg Collins cared for her mother until her death. Conflict is provided by three very selfish, manipulative beauties, Ralph's girlfriend (?) and Meg's two sisters - three women anyone would love to hate. Throughout the story Ralph doesn't understand his attraction to Meg and fights it. As the story unfolds one wonders who rescues who; and if a relationship develops, who gains more?

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost hero here Oct. 1 2010
By bettyfan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found this one every so slightly different from other Neel's I've read. This hero - Ralph Culver - seemed more lost than her other heros. Not that he wasn't self-assured - he is a very successful radiologist. But he seems to be in need of the kind of love and quiet security that his gorgeous, fashionable dates don't have. He becomes completely mesmerized by Meg - an honest, peaceful girl whose happy gardening and picking up stray dogs. She is the perfect girl for Ralph. He resists at first - but in the end he surrenders.

3.0 out of 5 stars No chemistry at all.... May 22 2012
By Patricia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoy most of Betty Neels' sweet romances, however Stormy Springtime is not one of my favorites. I saw little chemistry between Meg and Ralph. He is, at best on rare occasions, kind to her, however he is most often distantly polite or ignoring her. There are times, too, when he is downright rude for seemingly no reason. Meg speaks her mind early on in the story, bringing life to her character, but then turns into a meek introvert in order to catch his eye, having suddenly realized she was in love with him. When this proclamation of the heart came, I just stared at my Kindle wondering why.

He is, of course, a brilliant doctor, and we are told he has a good heart. He loves his mamma, his granny, and finds work for those he comes across who needs a job...such as Meg. Unlike other Betty Neel books, we are privy to very little of what is going on with Ralph. Nearly all of the story is told from Meg's point of view. Every now and then, Ralph tells her he is confused because he doesn't see her when she's around, but when she's not there, he misses her, or something of that sort. Had we seen something of this firsthand, from his point of view, it would have helped greatly, and I think this was the problem.

Also, unlike many of her books, most of the story takes place in London, or nearby in the country. There is one trip to Holland, but other than an accounting of towns they pass through, there's little 'color' or description of the area they visit, something I missed from other stories. The old Harlequins set in faraway places I've never visited are fun to read.

But, it is Betty Neels, so you can be assured of a well-written story with a happy, if abrupt, ending. While I didn't enjoy it as much as most other of her titles, it is surely not enough to prevent me from continuing to enjoy her lovely stories, and most Neel fans will be pleased. As always, no foul language, no sex, or anything remotely offensive. I read this on my Kindle and noticed no errors or problems in the digital form.

As usual Betty Neels has hit it again with a great story to read. She makes you feel like you are the one she is writing about and you are living the story. She will be missed!
3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm.. Feb. 27 2013
By Mom In Texas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Not one of my favorite Betty Neels. Ralph spends very little of his free time with Meg. Normal people in love like to spend time together. Which is why I find the last two pages, in which the book is all wrapped up, to be pretty far-fetched...
