Sweet Dreams by Carla Stewart ~ Book Review
This was a nice read from Carla Stewart. While it didn't grab me in quite the same way as the others I have read from her did, it still was a wonderful read that drew me into the story and the characters. There is a bit of mystery with family secrets and issues along several fronts and a theme of following one's dreams and talents and of learning to forgive. I love how the author develops her stories and characters, like a slow simmer, and it really keeps the pages turning for me. Her characters are so relatable and I get really attached to them as the story progresses. I loved the setting for the book, the early '60's and the finishing school. I can't say I have read a whole lot of books with that setting. Class systems, bullying, abuse,trying to fit in and societal expectations are all explored through the story of these two cousins. I have so far not been disappointed in any of this author's novels. She's one I keep on my watch list for new stories coming.
