Bachelor Brothers' Bed & Breakfast Pillow Book

by Bill Richardson

Paperback, 1998




St. Martin's Griffin (1998), Edition: annotated edition, 208 pages


A pair of endearingly eccentric bachelors--in their fifties, and fraternal twins--own and operate a bed & breakfast establishment where people like them, the "gentle and bookish and ever so slightly confused," can feel at home. Hector and Virgil think of their B&B as a refuge, a retreat, a haven, where folks may bring their own books or peruse the brothers' own substantial library. An antic blend of homespun and intellectual humor,Bachelor Brothers' Bed and Breakfast is a place readers will want to return to again and again.

I really enjoyed how this book picked up right after the other one left off. It was either as good or better than the first one. There were a few events that were hard to believe, but it was a nice, cozy visit with our 'old friends' from the first book. All the old characters are there, with one or two new ones. It surprised me with a few plot twists as well. And I found two more books to read from their book recommendations!… (more)

Another delightful sojourn with the Bachelor Brothers - while this book does have more of an overall narrative arc, I would still recommend reading the original BBB&B first to get the best feel for the characters. Smart, literary, and wonderful.
