Book Review Archive

Wherein I make a valiant effort to list the collected works of Betty Neels.

I sat down and typed up a list of Betty Neels novels. It's a tough proposition. I wish I could've just copied and pasted from one source, but I really didn't want to include a list of all of her collaborative books and omnibus collections.
I don't know if I got all her books...according to Wikipedia, La Neels wrote a total of 134 books...but I came up with 138 titles. I'm not sure if they're counting some of her slightly shorter stories that were included in collections. Some stories have different British titles - although I think I was able to sort through those. The dates and order are not definitive...but they give a general sense of when Betty published the books. Sometimes I had the British copywrite date to go by, sometimes the U.S. copywrite date.
...again, it's not a definitive list...more like a guideline. (If you notice any big goofs, send me an email!)
Each time we review a book, I add the link to that review - so you should be able to just click on the book title to go to the review. Here goes nothing:
