Another Betty Neels Post!

You'd think I'm obsessed... well, I'm not. I'm just a collector.

So, back when I worked at Barnes & Noble, I got all the lists of the Betty Neels books available. I found lists, all partial, but eventually compiled what I believed to be the compendium. There was one book that seemed to be a rumor. I couldn't ever find a hint of it in the B&N system, though I found it twice on the internet.

Wikipedia listed it, when I looked this past week.

So I went to Amazon, and, what do you know, there it was... and it's DIFFERENT (those of you who read Betty know all her books are delightfully the same). I see why Harlequin didn't print it when she wrote it.

The first 1/4 of the book deals with the rich doctor trying to save his nanny from Poland, which, at the time, was under martial law. It was too much of a political statement for her, and for harlequin, though Mills and Boon published it. The M&B copy is worth, on Amazon, $30. Of course, at the prices Amazon lists, my Betty collection is worth thousands. To me it's priceless, of course. :)
