Summary

Didn’t he trust her to care for his mother properly? 

After the hurly-burly of the big London hospital where she had been working, Judith found it a very pleasant change to be offered a private job looking after a charming patient, Lady Cresswell, in the Lake District. Her patient gave her no trouble at all - which was more than could be said for her patient’s son, the disagreeable Professor Charles Cresswell. 

He seemed to have taken a dislike to Judith on sight - a dislike which, it must be confessed, Judith returned with interest. And now he was turning up to spoil their pleasant holiday in Portugal as well!

A Stormy Romance but a happy ending.

I have a great fondness for Betty Neels’ gentle, predictable novels. I like the old fashioned mindset, the cosy down to earth characters and the importance food has in the storylines. Everyone eats old fashioned meals and lots of tempers are soothed with a nice cup of tea. It’s like greeting an old friend.
For this particular story, the protagonists fight like hammer and tongs, bringing out the worst in each other, though occasionally being adult enough to recognise the good in the other person. I very much liked Lady Cresswell, even if her son was a bit of an ungrateful grump at times and I was glad that Judith gave as good as she got. I’m sure it’s a book I will come back to again and again.
Anne Cater is an accomplished narrator who somehow manages to voice male and female characters without any sign of effort and without distracting from the story.

Great Mother

Loved the mother in this story. It's set in the Lake District and Portugal. Lots of disagreements between the hero and heroine but all comes well in the end
