The Girl on the Boat by P. G. Wodehouse
By: (1881-1975)

Also published as "Three Men and a Maid".

All four find themselves on an ocean liner headed for England together, along with a capable young woman called Jane Hubbard who is smitten with Eustace, and typically Wodehousian romantic shenanigans ensue.
