Nanny by Chance by Betty Neels
This is a romance novel of the Mills and Boon type, but without the sexual innuendos and intrigue of normal Mills and Boon stories. Minty was born late in life to two Celtic history fanatics and has been brought up with some old-fashioned views. She spent several years keeping house for her parents until she finally managed to convince them to let her go to study medicine. However, her parents accept a job for her, which will delay her starting the nursing course for several weeks, and initially she is bitterly disappointed. When she finally meets the gentleman and the young nephews she will be overseeing, she finds that she thoroughly enjoys the job and is in fact reluctant to leave them, although she has to as her place is booked and there is no more need of her with the boys.
This is a humourous and light-hearted romance and should be taken as such. There are plenty of moments where you smack your forehead and groan, and moments that make you laugh out loud. I found the story very enjoyable although it did seem to be a little rushed at the end – with a very obvious happy ending.
