Enchanting Samantha

Enchanting Samantha One of my favorite Betty Neels books A young English nurse meets a handsome, charming and rich Dutch doctor and falls for him completely Of course, some misunderstanding comes between them and the inevitable end is postponed At last, all problems are resolved, and everyone lives happily ever after I always come back to one of my Betty Neels when I need a lift of spirits. I don t know if it s just the mood I m in, but I found this book really amusing I couldn t help smiling as I read about poor Samantha, a quite likable young woman, who is convinced she ll have to learn to live without the man she loves She keeps trying to tell herself it won t be so bad When of course I know that he s already already interested in her and eventually they ll end up together I really liked Giles, a RDD who doesn t mind picking up a dish mop and washing dishes And any man who irons is a winner in my mind lol There is another girl but she s not nasty just beautiful and young and rich The plot moved along well, and if there weren t any surprises well who reads a book like this to be surprised It felt like a lovely visit with an old friend over their kitchen table comfortable, friendly and fun. 3 1 2 stars First, let me say that Giles may be the best RDD ever he cooked and cleaned and even IRONED our PBN s uniform You wouldn t think any girl with a lick of sense would even consider running away to Brazil with a man like this around But Samantha thinks, for no reason whatsoever, that Giles is engaged to Antonia remember Rolf and Sappha in Tangled Autumn TGB must have hated a girl named Antonia because this younger sister of Rolf s has been the cause of a misunderstanding in two of her books As much as I loved Giles and his wicked sense of humor, I can t say I felt the same about Samantha I like a feisty, sassy heroine but Sam bordered on the rude and even worse, came across as a martyr.That said, it was lovely visiting with Rolf and Sappha and the Baroness again.6 24 16 After some discussions amongst the Betties on the TUJD Facebook page, I decided to reread this one.It is not as bad as I previously thought There are some memorable bits Giles, of course, is still just as wonderful as before Antonia at least is blameless as to Samantha s misunderstanding I particularly liked the description of Baby Rolf with his miniature satyr s eyebrows ha And of course, the part where Sam plans to run down a Brazilian mine As one of the Betties put it, Giles does everything but put up billboards and hire sky writers Samantha stubbornly ignores it all At least until nearly the very end As Giles is driving her to Schiphol, Samantha knew now, deep in her bones, that he liked her but she thinks that he and Antonia are an item and doesn t want to infringe.I m glad I reread this 3.75 stars. Poor Giles, he has his work cut out for him Heroine was a bit too prickly for my taste and a bit dense when it came to people and relationships, but still an enjoyable story from Betty Neels.3.5 stars A very sweet read Nothing really special about it. Giles is rather a lovely hero and we see right from the start that he is rather taken with Samantha He thinks she is Enchanting despite admitting she is no great beauty.Samantha, like many Neels heroines takes against Giles at the start but he soon wins her over So much so that she starts to think maybe he does fancy her Despite the oh so lovely Antonia who we met in her brother Rolf and Sappha s story.It s all about the misunderstandings in this book, though it doesn t help when Samantha s friends invent an entirely fictitious fianc for her to chase the supposedly philandering Giles away without her knowledge.A nice romance with a pleasant visit with some old friends. Not a favorite Betty but okay to read on a long car ride, came across this one on Scdbd and couldn t remember reading it before The heroine usual plain but kind nurse was a bit too snippy and quick to jump and frankly got on my nerves I wasn t sure why the hero bothered with her Of course we re supposed to figure it s lack of experience with men but she didn t have the usual calm, common sense and humor Betty usually gives her heroines at least the ones I like and re read Still, light, fun brain candy after weeks of working my way through Phineas Finn and than I ever wanted to know about passing a reform bill in the Victorian British parliament, so I enjoyed it Read on the KindleI am working my way through Betty Neels books these are a lovely read you have to remember they are set late 60s early 70s at least these earlier books it always the say or less but this was the format that Mills Boon wanted for their booksA nice easy escape book to read but do remember that while lovely to read they are dated as i very much they would be written in present day but i still enjoy these books so now i read 1 19 of 134 books 4 Stars Samantha s managed a remarkable bond with her elderly patient in the Women s Ward of the London hospital where she works The dear Dutch lady speaks no english and Samantha speaks no dutch, but they understand one another brilliantly Unfortunately, the very handsome Dutch doctor who employs the woman as his housekeeper, has somehow rubbed up the wrong side of Samantha Giles is not part of the London hospital but as a friend of the hospital chief he s convinced the doctors to all chip in to help the nurses out when the housekeeping staff are all out on strike He uses the strike to pay a lot of attention to her and soon, Sam has to admit that Giles is indeed charming and as it turns out very kind and considerate as well After a few days off from the hospital, Sam returns and is surprised to find she s been transferred to the private ward and put in charge of a young dutch woman Antonia is very beautiful and from a well to do family, and much to Sam s surprise Giles is a very good friend When Antonia is ready to leave the hospital, the family asks for Sam to accompany her back to Holland for a few weeks while she continues to recover Giles is very persuasive, and Sam agrees with great reluctance Sam s fallen in love with him and knows the trip will only increase her heartache, as Antonia has hinted in many ways that she s about to be engaged Sam s a very generous and caring young woman but she s also very sensible She knows she s not a beauty and though she desires to some day marry and have children, she realizes that perhaps her life will be a nursing career Giles is very charming and at first she s sure his attentions are only his way of having fun In fact, he does come right out and tell her that she s quite plain, but he calls her his enchanting Samantha Of course, Giles fell in love with her at first sight, and is rather surprised that Sam doesn t seem to like him Another lovely story We ve met Antonia in Tangled Autumn, which is her brother Rolf and Sappha s story It was a very nice treat to visit again with them I ll have to make note of the characters in Betty Neel s Holland books to see if there are other connections I adore stories with glimpses of past couples it s like a peek into their HEA. Samantha Sympathized With The Problems Of The Elderly Dutch Woman Who Was Admitted To The Hospital Where She WorkedBut She Didn T Realize That Her Encounter With Juffrouw Boot S Employer, The Striking Giles Ter Ossel, Would Bring Her So Much Heart Searching Perhaps One Shouldn T Get Involved With One S Patients Yet
