Ring In A Teacup by Betty Neels

riatc bn bookcoverShe’d never seen a man so angry!

Nurse Lucy Prendergast had not made a good impression. Falling asleep during a consultant’s lecture was hardly the best way to attract the great man’s attention!

So she set out to correct the bad impression she’d made.
Dr. Fraam der Linssen, however, seemed to have a positive genius for catching her in the most awkward situations.

And anyway, why should she care what he thought? He’d already made it plain that he preferred her pretty friend, Mies.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars

I laughed at how the h who was a nurse Lucy first met the H who was a professor Fraam when she was asleep in his lecture, I liked how they met again in Holland when she was visiting her friend who I wasn’t too keen on but seeing as she wasn’t much in the story it didn’t bother me too much, I enjoyed how Fraam fell in love with Lucy but she was clueless throughout the story and I particularly like the blizzard plotline and how he came to be there at the right time.

What I didn’t really get is why even though he was in love with her he was still dating and going around with other women instead of slowly wooing her but when he proposed to her he did stop and I didn’t really get why that even when she told him she loved him he didn’t tell her the same, it left me confused especially when he tells her near the beginning that it will be her fault if he marries someone else.
I liked the tactic he used to get her back to Holland when he got her to look after her friend’s father despite him not really needing her.
There was the typical mischief of the ow who once again the h easily believed and obviously the ow got away with it, I did laugh at how Lucy got into a temper afterwards and threw her engagement ring into a teacup hence the title and how Fraam had to rescue her from a locked hotel room when she left her belongings in the house and had no money to pay.
The ending I did like but it was too short and there was no epilogue.
