Bachelor Boys

A Novel

Kate Saunders

St. Martin's Griffin


Trade Paperback

All the warmth and love in Cassie's childhood came from the Darling family. Escaping from her own remote, chilly parents, Cassie reveled in the exuberant chaos she found at the home of the Darlings--two boys, a cheerful father, and a glorious mother, Phoebe, who always welcomed the lonely little girl next door.
Cassie is grown up now, living a suitable life with a suitable boyfriend, until her beloved Phoebe falls ill and comes to Cassie with one last request: Will Cassie help her sons, a pair of incorrigible bachelors, find wives to look after them? It's true they are gorgeously handsome, but they are also unemployed and still living in their mother's basement. Cassie can scarcely say ‘No' to Phoebe--but how will she ever find decent girlfriends, let alone wives, for these wildly sexy, and wildly impractical, bachelor boys?

Kate Saunders's Bachelor Boys is a story about love and loss that's moving, wise, and wickedly funny

“Is it possible to be too beautiful? Too talented? Too intelligent? Too odd? The four Hasty daughters are all that and more, simultaneously blessed and cursed by the genetic gifts of their eccentric sire. . . . [A] whimsical and witty comedy of manners.” —Kirkus Reviews on The Marrying Game

“An absolute delight!” —Susan Isaacs, author of Any Place I Hang My Hat, on The Marrying Game

“Such wit, such charm, such intelligence, and what I loved most is that although in some ways it's a very serious book, it gave me that money-can't-buy serene glow that everything was going to be okay.
