From the Publisher
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,
"Genuinely funny and heart-wrenching."
"A radiant romantic comedy."
---Emily Giffin"A smart, funny novel that offers a sharp look at
some of love''s more painful complications." ---"Chicago
Sun-Times""Engaging, witty fare, Saunders''s novel of matchmaking
gone awry (think modern-day "Emma") is smart fiction." ---"Kirkus
""Bachelor Boys "is about going next door to find family, about
keeping promises, and about how people live forever in the hearts
of those who love them. Kate Saunders has written a wonderful novel
filled with the real and magical power of love." --Luanne Rice,
author of "Dance with Me"
Praise for "The Marrying Game: "
"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."
"An absolute delight!" --Susan Isaacs, author of "Any Place I Hang
"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. This is a gloriously buoyant, uplifting book." --Marian
Keyes, author of "The Other Side of the Story"
"Elegant, funny, and deliciously romantic." --Katie Fforde, author
of "Paradise Fields"
