Oops, I forgot to post this. My apologies to Betty Caroline. We had international emails two days in a row!
I have just recently come across you web site after I googled one of my all time fav reads - Caroline's Waterloo (slacking off in work no less eck!).
I have to say I completely love it! Who knew there would be a web site dedicated to Betty Neels!
I started reading Betty Neels when I was about 18 - resulting in a bit of a Dutch Doctor infatuation if I am honest! and now at 31 it is all coming back!
I kept a few odd favourites scattered around, but after reading your book reviews I sent my partner up the loft to bring down my boxed up entire Neels collection. And I am loving re-reading them all.
Thanks very much for rekindling my love for the Betty!
p.s. The only Betty Neels I can't read is A Match for Sister Maggy as Betty Neels take on Scottish slang slightly cringes me out!
Dear Betty Caroline,
First of all, I don't blame you a bit for loving Caroline's Waterloo - not only is it my favorite Neels - you also share a name (which makes me wish I liked Waiting for Deborah just as well, it's a fine offering by La Neels, but it's no Caroline's Waterloo)...
Second of all, Scotland!?! I don't blame you a bit for not being able to enjoy mangled Scottish slang (Can you read Tangled Autumn without cringing?).
Welcome to the party.
Love and lardy cakes,
