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. After a rather depressing experience with the umpteenth vampire book I was looking for some shallow vapid preferably British chick lit that would hopefully keep occupied only 2 neurons of my brainI picked up this book hoping that the cherries on the cover would be a sure sign of what I was looking for And up to a certain page it actually was kind of what I expectedThe premises were all there we meet Cassie an overachieving editor at a literary magazine and her boyfriend Matthew an overachieving controlling and boring lawyer with a balding tendency Cassie comes from a family of academics who never showed her a crumb of affection and has spent her childhood being looked after by her family s neighbors Phoebe Jimmy and their two boys Fritz and Ben When Cassie receives a phone call from her beloved and terminally sick surrogate mother Phoebe asking for her help to marry off her bachelor and hopelessly gigolo boys Cassie can only consent though rather reluctantly the boys are really hopeless total slackers no job no money no property nothing She therefore starts her uest for possible candidates while trying to make the two slackers presentable Up to this point I found the plot rather amusing but stupid Who would seriously agree to such a deal Maybe Cassie but certainly not Fritz and Ben who were two total gigolos and supposed to get married within mere monthsAs I settled comfortably on my couch letting the two neurons roam free inside my skull everything changed The plot developed but most importantly the characters came alive and literally ripped the pages of the book What sucked me in was the touching relationship between Phoebe and Cassie the love between a mother and a daughter she never had and who is helping her to die I might be extremely sensitive about this topic for personal reasons and I might be particularly sensitive to death in general but I thought Saunders did a great job taking me through the final bittersweet moments of life of a person who is rather comically preparing herself and those around her for death I can t deny I shed some tears and that is NOT what I expected from my chick litA book that was meant to be shallow and banal suddenly demanded an increasing number of my neurons to properly cope with the real plots love in all its shapes be it motherly brotherly or between a man and a woman death and how it permeates every aspect of our lives because it is inevitable yet so very natural and friendship because chemistry at first sight is possible but love has to go through a few sometimes rather painful phases to be genuineSo the main asset of this book is certainly characterization well developed REAL characters presented to us by means of a cunning and unrushed narration where chapter after chapter they become and defined we get to know them to appreciate them in their imperfection to identify with them And with Cassie identify I did There were so many things she said and thought in the book which could easily have come out of my mouth The snob in me registered that there were no books in the house except photograph albums and no pictures Evidently Mrs Batty did not like clutter This is probably the first thing I notice when I go to somebody s house the absence or presence of books And it IS totally snob But this is just one example of many and I think that when an author manages to make me reader identify with one of the characters it is no small conuest It is actually what every author should keep in mind when creating a character readers need to relate to empathize with at least one of the protagonists if I do not care for the heroine of the book how am I motivated to go on readingIt would have been a 5 stars for sure if not for the fact that end in end it HAD to have something of the chick lit a highly predictable plot some gender related stereotyping a few rather excessive sappy moments I almost got cavities None of these though detract from the beauty of this book which is obviously so much than I expectedI highly recommend it if you re looking for an easy read but one with heart depth and very good storytelling

    45 out of 5 starsSince I'm basically an historical romance and mystery enthusiast I don't often read contemporary romance But I really enjoyed Kate Saunders' historical mystery series starting with The Secrets of Wishtide She so far written two books in that series and I hope that there will be many to come So on the strength of Saunders' historical mysteries I tried her contemporary romance and I am so glad th

    You know from the very beginning that Phoebe has cancer and that she's dying from it That is why when you read this and you start crying your eyes out you know this is a great book When an author can tell you what's going to happen and you still don't want to accept it and when you are forced to you start bawling

    When I picked up Bachelor Boys I had expected a light romantic chick lit By the time I put it down I felt like I had been kicked in the stomach Just having lost my father to cancer I thought the book did a beautiful job of portraying living life the best you can while trying to deal with someone close to you dying and the reality of death and loss
