    Review Tally - based out of 5Ok, before I go into my review, I feel I have to be 100% honest with you. I am a huge - make that HUGE Betty Neels fan. I discovered her when I was 10 or 11 years old. Over the years, I have collected every Betty Neels novel ever in print. Even special ordering them all the way from England because I was having difficulty finding them over here in the States. That being said, this story here "Wish With The Candles" is a favorite of mine. For the last couple of years, I have been looking for this title to add to my growing ebook library so I have it whenever I want. The problem was, I remembered the book, but NOT the title and kept getting frustrated going through my Betty Neels collection to try and find this ONE SINGLE TITLE. On the other hand, looking at the synopsises for it on Amazon and BN, enabled me to buy numerous other books by Betty Neels because I kept thinking "oooo I remember that one, it was a really good one I need to buy it too!"OVERALL: 5 STARS, a personal favoriteStory/Plot: 5 - I wonder if there is another person out there like me who as mentioned above looked everywhere for this title. If you are, I am going to drop the spoiler and the main thing I remembered of this book so if you're out there, THIS IS IT! (if it's not, I am sorry. I know the frustration)SPOILER COMMENT: In this wonderful romance by Betty Neels, Emma Hastings literally runs into (with her car) handsome Dutch Surgeon Justin Teylingen. After unstucking (even I kinda cringed at that idea) their two cars, Justin (who we all know falls instantly in love with Emma) sends Emma and her mother to have her car completely overhauled for the price of a simple plug! Of course, much more happens, but I don't want to spoil it too much for you.Those of ya'll that are Betty Neels fans know the general premise is a rich handsome doctor falls for a nurse (sometimes she is not beautiful, she might be under appreciated or from a home of privilege but has recently fallen on hard times).Those of you who are not Betty Neels fans, I highly recommend her works especially if you like Jane Austen or Georgette Heyer. Her romances are usually light, sweet and quick reads (usually no more than 9 chapters).Highly enjoyable any volume you pick up.Re-read Value: 5 - As if you didn't know.Continue Series: - Not applicable.Characters: 5 - I have rarely found a hero or heroine in a Betty Neels novel I didn't enjoy. The Secondary and Support Characters sometimes they can be a little bothersome, but . . .Cover: 3 - 50/50. To be honest, if you didn't know who Betty Neels was when you picked up this cover, you might not know it was a romance from the look of it. But prior to her passing and when she did pass, there were a number of her books that were reissued with these more artsy covers. I also have the original cover this was released in paperback, which does say romance.Genre Fulfillment: 5 - Romance, check.Personal Involvement: 5 - Long after I read this, I remembered the storyline, but not the exact title. I have re-read this story a number of times over the year and have FINALLY purchased myself an ebook copy so I have it in that form whenever I wish to re-read it again. I must admit although repurchasing books I already own on ebook might be a little expensive, it also saves time having to dig through shelves, stacks or boxes to find that ONE book I really must read RIGHT NOW!

    The hero is very likable and very much the gentleman, and the heroine is smart and certainly not a doormat. But, she is much too clueless to be believable, even for a Neels story. I mean, if a guy asks you out several times, kisses you on several occasions, compliments you, accompanies you home to meet your mother, gazes deeply into your eyes and makes comments that infers he wants you to be in his life forever, wouldn't you think perhaps he is interested in you? Well, Emma doesn't, despite her pining away for him. And, for me, that's the problem with Wish With the Candles. I kept thinking how dense Emma was, out of character for such a strong young woman, and how thin the plot. Halfway through I was saying "oh, come on, already!" The Big Misunderstanding is weak and poorly done, also.The story is typical Neels, just not one of her best, in my opinion. It is, however, sweet escapism with a very uncomplicated plot. Nothing offensive, no typos or other formatting mistakes. 3.5 stars.

    This was lovely romantic story the Hero Justin and the Heroin Emma had great chemistry and the secondary characters such as Kitty the sister and her love interest Willy just makes the story more interesting. I love it when Justin tells Emma you are never out of my thoughts

    When I want a vacation, I pick up a Betty Neels book. It is like putting your mind in a mountain camp with no stress and peaceful sounds of nature. This is one of my favorites. It's the standard story of rich, handsome Dutch surgeon and English nurse. The humor in this book makes it stand out. All of Betty Neels books have humor, but this one exceeds the normal levity. The doctor is not as arrogant as some, and the nurse is only a little bit slow in recognizing her hero's devotion.

    I love most all Betty Neels books an this one is a favorite! I love that the hero has copper hair and green eyes!Very different! I think like anything you have to be in a certain mood to read a Neels book. Just a light read and don't think to much about why the character act the way they do.

    Love this book. Always a pleasure to read a book by Betty Neels. A sweet old fashioned romance. Never a disappointment.

    A gentle read with engaging characters and plausible villains. A nice escape from sad, real life stories and concerns. Classic Neels
