Samantha Krasner runs the Cole Art Gallery on Madison Avenue. She is trying to find Mr. Right, and if her mother continues to intervene, she will find him in no time. What Samantha would give just to have a normal mother.
Madeline Krasner-Wolfe is filthy rich, but a alone again, after losing another husband. She is still a nice-looking woman and should have no problem finding someone else to fall in love with and marry. First, she wants to find someone for her daughter.
Madeline has a bad habit of phoning Samantha everyday for lunch. As much as Samantha loves her mother, she does have a job. She cannot break free everyday her mother summons her. Ever since Madeline became a widow again, she has attached herself to Samantha. When handsome, drop-dead, Blake Hamilton arrives to show his art display, Madeline is certain he will make a great son-in-law. Blake is a friendly sort of man, an artist with an eye for lovely women. Can Samantha find happiness with Blake or is their relationship destined for an uncertain future? With him living in London, long distance relationships are often not reliable. Surely there has to be someone out there for Samantha, and if Madeline has her way, she will search high and low for the perfect beau.
Bachelor Degree is a zany good read. I enjoyed the camaraderie with Samantha and her mother. Madeline may seem like a pest at times, but it is a mother-daughter bond that makes this story so enjoyable. I think one thing that touched me about the book was when Samantha thinks of her father’s death, and how it brought a yearning of something that would never be the same again. I found that to be oh, so true, after losing my dad. Judith Marks-White creates a tale that many can relate. I love the way she paints the rich characters, giving them that certain pizzazz to connect with the reader in this delectable read. When she blends in the well-rounded secondary characters, she pens a story that flows at a great pace.
