This s a delightfully clean story of a couple of young women raise in the nineteen fifties and sixties. Many "baby boomers" can truly relate to much of tis story.

Dusty and Paisley were first cousins who felt more like sisters until tragedy hit Dusty and her family while she was still very young. After that, her aunt fled Texas with her young daughter.

Through the following years, the two cousins mostly kept connected by letters and an occasional visit usually ending in conflict between their sibling parents. Dusty's dad ""hit it big" so

finances was never an issue. Paisley's mom was a different issue, of which Paisley preferred not to dwell on.

When the two girls graduated from High School, Dusty's dad insisted they go to finishing school before they could pursue anything else. Dusty didn't have much choice but Paisley fought her

mother's objections and won! This is the only consolation Dusty could feel. She would finally get to spend time with her beloved cousin.

'Sweet Dreams' is the story primarily set around the two girls experiences and the emotional, plus, personal growth that resulted from that year of their lives. Many lessons are learned other than those of etiquette and manners.

This drama also possesses romance, adventure and a little mystery, as well.

The characters are established in a manner one feels personally acquainted with them. The surrounding environment and background is described in detail.

The cover picture is somewhat descriptive but I would have preferred one with a little more personality. The title is good yet could have been more original.

The story slowly built and the last part really added to the momentum. It dragged a little in the middle of the plot. It felt somewhat repetitive. For these reasons alone I do not offer this book a full five stars in my review of it.

This book was graciously sent to me by the author for an honest review of which I have given. ( )
