    1 thought on “Bachelor Brothers' Bed & Breakfast Pillow Book”

    1. I really enjoyed this continuation of the story of the brothers, their friends, their B&B and the interesting story of mystery written between the pages. All in all, the two Bachelor Brothers books are humorous, delightful and warm. I recommend these books to anyone who enjoys quirky tales, quirky characters and quirky coincidences. This is not a novel with a straightforward story but a collection of short stories, diary entries, newspaper clippings, recipes and book recommendations.

    2. This is a continuation of the first book Bachelor Brothers' Bed & Breakfast. I didn't find this one quite as charming. It touched on some subjects that I just felt weren't necessary. Call me a prude, just somethings don't need to be in a book that is supposed to be quaint and charming. Oh well, I've read them both and don't need to read the third.

    3. Years ago, I read the original BBB&B, and when I saw this book I remembered absolutely nothing about the first one except that I enjoyed it. Now I remember why I liked it. It’s sweet without being cloying, literate (and literary) without being stuffy, and clever without being overly dense or difficult. It's just a nice, pleasant little read. This second volume takes us through a year or so in the lives of fifty-something bachelor brothers Hector and Virgil, proprietors of a bed and breakfa [...]

    4. a charming book. I loved the ending. All sorts of literary allusions for a former English teacher to enjoy. I haven't read the first book but read this one first since it was available in the library. I need to read the first one now.

    5. On our cold and dreary Thanksgiving day, after the usual too much delicious food at noon dinner, I adjourned to the quietness of my living room to finish this book that my bff had taken out on our town’s inter library loan. “ Read it quick” she said, “ I want to pass it on to others in the book club.” The characters, human and animal, the biblio references the setting on an island in a forest in northwestern USA, the silly poems, the awkward situations……what fun. What would happen [...]

    6. I really enjoyed this bookrhaps not quite as much as the first one but then it did have a lot to live up to. Once again there were too many amusing incidents to mention here, Caedmon & his silent rooster & the poems of Solomon Solomon must make everyone smile 😀Let's hope this isn't the last in the series.

    7. This wasn't as good as the first Bachelor Brothers' novel, but a lot of that is due to the characters taking too much time to repeat the key points of the first book. Some of the stories within this book were humorous, but some of them just started to feel a little repetitive.

    8. Just like Bachelor Brothers' Bed and Breakfast, this is a light, literate, fun read. Enjoy this author's voice very much. You may have to be in a certain frame of mind to enjoy it to its fullest, but I certainly did.

    9. 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.

    10. This is a funny, charming, clever, eclectic, erudite book. Enjoyed it, loved the characters and their relationships and the story was a hoot.

    11. Absolutely loved the first one, but couldn’t finish this, maybe I’m just in a phase of life that clashes with it.

    12. A light-hearted and humorous collection of diary entries, recipes, and observations from the Virgil and Hector, the two bachelor brothers who run a bed and breakfast. While there is a story arch, this book is probably best viewed as fun companion for those who have read the the original _Bachelor Brothers' Bed & Breakfast_ or as a brief sampler to the BB's lives. Very entertaining in a gentle way. Have tried the receipe for Betty Bundy's Bacehlor Buttongs, but it didn't work - so I'll have t [...]

    13. Another light, whimsical read from Richardson. These are mostly small vignettes; observations and short anecdotes about life at a B&B set somewhere in (far) western Canada. The stories are nearly all humorous, some bordering on the fantastic (as in unbelievable), but all entertaining. Its not going to win any major literary awards, but sometimes you just need a quick, light, fun read. Closer to a 3 1/2 rating.

    14. I could have easily put 2 stars. but it made me laugh out loud (nearly out loud - I had to hold it in because my back was really sore). What a quirky little novel. Very odd. Some great characters. Very interesting chapter headings.Has a lot to recommend it - but not to anyone who needs to be sucked straight into a book. This needs to grow on you. should state that I never got to read the first book. Is not available in the libraries where I am.

    15. Just as charming, and even more whimsical than its predecessor, this follows the doings of twins Virgil and Hector and their friends, including a new presence at the Canadian island b and b. This time, the brothers are targeted by a vindictive magazine editor, gain a new relative, learn more about their mother's friend Solomon Solomon, the noted poet, and each try a new experience.

    16. There should be an additional grading system for odd books. Maybe question marks - one? for "Not very Odd", two?? for "Rather Odd", three ??? for "Definitely Odd", four ???? for "Distinctly Odd" and five for "Was There a Point To This?". This book is a definite ?????

    17. What a find at the library booksale!! (bag of books for $1) So well written, such eccentrically wonderful characters, so many literary references. A real gem. Written by Bill Richardson of NPR's Canadian version "As You Like It". Was quite funny at times, too. Part of a series.

    18. This is SO funny! And the Bachelor Brother's reminded me so much of an older friend that I have. I could just hear him saying the dialogue.

    19. I didn't think it was as good as the first. I think they were deep in their cups. Very impressed with themselves and their ways with words. If you like strange conincidences you might enjoy it.

    20. Hilarious! And endearing. I'd finished the first and was a few chapters into this before I wondered if it was fiction! Hope for a trilogy.

    21. Though I still enjoyed reading about the two eccentric bachelor brothers, this book was just not as good as the first one. I think Solomon Solomon killed my interest.

    22. This was another great Bachelor Brothers installment. Very entertaining reading, with exceptional writing.

    23. Not having read the first Bachelor Brothers' B & B this was my first introduction to Hector and Virgil. I really enjoyed the humour and clever writing. All the eccentric characters come alive.

    24. Clearly, I am NOT the demographic this book was intended for.Perhaps in another 40 years I would find this book interesting.Perfect for old ladies
