Title: SWEET DREAMS

Although she's never wanted for material possessions, Dusty longs for
independence and adventure. The only upside to attending Miss Fontaine's is
having her cousin and best childhood friend, Paisley,
SWEET DREAMS is Ms. Stewart’s latest novel. It is very well written, but starts out really sad with Dusty’s Mama dying, and her best friend/cousin moving away. Dusty is virtually raised by the family housekeeper, and she set her dreams on going to college, but her father has decided she needs finishing school and to learn how to be a trophy bride for a millionaire (like himself).
It is a sweet story that will hold your attention, draw you in and make you care for Dusty—and even Paisley, thought the story isn’t in her point of view. Fans of Ms. Stewart, or fiction set in the 1960s will love this book. I think this is Ms. Stewart’s best book yet. Don’t miss SWEET DREAMS. $14.99. 336 pages.
