    1. Carla Stewart is one talented writer. I didn't know exactly how much until I was on a plane, reading the first chapter of Sweet Dreams, and found myself completely immersed in the story. Carla's lyricism and keen eye for detail really bring her characters to life. Dusty and Paisley are not just figments of imagination, trying to navigate their dreams around the demands of life and finishing school, but flesh and blood cousins and sisters. Well done! I look forward to reading every book Carla has [...]


    2. Just got in the First Reads giveaway! This was really good I'm really glad that I won it in the first reads giveaway. Anyways what to say what to say. I loved Dusty and Paisley (not sure about as a name but hey its unique), they were great dynamic characters. There I go again saying random literary jargon that I don't know the meaning of it was either that or round character. Well anyways back to the book usually I don't really like books about Texas, I don't know if that's because I'm biased a [...]


    3. I was excited to receive this from First Reads. It was a fun read with some touching moments that would make a good pool or beach read. The contrast between the two main characters Dusty and Paisley kept the book lighthearted with a few tense moments. Personally, I felt there wasn't enough conflict when it came to Jack. The description of the book makes it seem like that is the driving story of the book but it seemed more like a footnote. The driving stories seemed more like the conflict betwee [...]


    4. On the surface, this is a sweet story about two cousins attending finishing school. If that's all it was, it would be interesting enough - what was finishing school and how did girls feel about being sent there in 1962? But there's a whole deeper level of story - of family conflicts and secrets. Dive in - the story is more than fine!


    5. SWEET DREAMS by Carla Stewart(about the book)It's 1962, and Dusty Fairchild, daughter of a self-made millionaire and oilman, wants to go to college. Instead she is sent to a private finishing school in East Texas. 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, join her. Paisley has traveled the country with her bohemian mother, but she dreams of [...]


    6. Carla Stewart's latest offering is a tender story crafted with splendid prose. Dusty Fairchild and her cousin, Paisley, are wonderfully unique characters who sparkle with life, making me laugh, smile, and experience heart-ache as they leave childhood behind and enter the sometimes murky waters of adulthood. I greatly enjoyed the time period that this novel is set in, the early 1960's, providing a great backdrop not only for the main story, but also for the other characters that grace the pages. [...]


    7. Just finished this one! The reader can almost hear Patsy Cline in the background while Dusty and her cousin, Paisley, are sent off to attend a finishing school. There is a bit of mystery at the school that puzzles Dusty who wants to go to college and study geology no learn how to set a table. Sparks fly when Dusty discovers that her boyfriend has fallen for Paisley. Why does Dusty's dad seem to hate his sister? What does it have to do with Dusty's mother's death years ago? Clara Stewart tells he [...]


    8. Another very good book by Carla. The setting of the early 1960s in Texas was wonderful. The primary characters of Dusty and Paisley were interesting. It was fun to read what young women of that era learned in charm school and the limits they had own their life choices. The hiding of an illegitimate child with Down's Syndrome and blaming young women who were victim's of sexual harassment reminded me that some of our progress in the last 50 years has been good. Finally, the message of family bonds [...]


    9. Boring. Just a surface novel where things just seemed fluffy, not getting down to the nitty gritty. Somewhat unrealistic. Would not recommend.


    10. Very touchingThe characters were very well portrayed. The period was well addressed. The sixties were an era in the middle of great changes in the USA, but the early sixties in small town Texas was still drug and sex free.




    11. "Some scars are written on the heart. You might not be able to see them but they're there."After the death of her mother, Dusty Fairchild has always dreamed of going to college to study Geology, but her father, Flint Fairchild, self made owner of Fairchild Oil has other plans. He wants her to spend a year attending Miss Fontaine's Finishing School for Girls in East Texas. Dusty can't seem to understand how that will benefit her but she is willing to go as long as her childhood best friend and co [...]


    12. Carla Stewart’s most recent novel, Sweet Dreams, is yet another sweet read from one of my favorite authors. I appreciate Carla’s soft, strong way with just the right words and the masterful touch of raw real life she adds to each story. Her characters jump off the page and resonate in the heart, and she creates the setting in such a way that it becomes a character within the story.Her absolutely gorgeous book covers are a book-lover-eye-candy bonus.A little about Sweet Dreams:It’s 1962, an [...]


    13. 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 sibl [...]


    14. Dusty Fairchild found three rocks at her mother’s funeral, gave one to her cousin Paisley, when she was 3 years old. She still had those two remaining rocks, which led her to deciding that she wanted to go to college to study Geology, but her father had different ideas. One year at Miss Fontaine’s finishing school, instead of heading off to college to study Geology, was what he promised, And then, maybe.Paisley traveled with her mother, Aunt Edith, moving all the time, lots of different guys [...]

    16. Descriptively evocative of the 1960's, Ms Stewart effectively sets the mood and memories of this story. Young women sent for preparation to the Rosebriar Finishing School to learn how to fulfill their roles in society of their day. Reminiscent of The Help, in attitudes and actions. Insights of life of the era including music, artists, fashion, foods, decor, colours, styles, and changing perceptions of life as these young women matured during their year away.The emotional realities of two cousins [...]


    17. I was half way through the book before I "got into it". To me, the middle is where it began. Conflict with parents was general background early in the book. Only when conflict arose between the two best friends did it become interesting to me. However, I did enjoy the 1960s setting because I was a teenager in the 1950s and 1960s. It was very nostalgic reading. Even the picture on the front cover brought back memories, especially wearing white gloves when going to church or a reception or a tea. [...]


    18. This was a very light hearted read, but yet very enjoyable. Set in 1962, Dusty and her cousin Paisley spend a year at a finishing school, Dusty's mom long dead and Paisley mom trying to find herself. Dusty's dad is an oil millionaire and expects her to marry well. She's more interested in geology and wants to go to college but dad doesn't want that. She is dating Jack but when he meets Paisley, sparks fly. They don't act on it but finally Jack breaks up with Dusty. In the end Dusty realize that [...]


    19. I've never read any books by this author, but I really enjoyed this book The early 60's, I was just a young kid then. But I remember all the joys and memories made with my cousins. This book took me back to those times. The struggles we all went thru to be make friendships, falling in love and with friendship. The frustration we had with our parents, trying to be our own person. This was a wonderful and touching book.I'm starting on another one of her books now.


    20. As a Texas gal, I always enjoy reading books set in my beloved state. I liked all the characters, especially Dusty & Paisley. This was a fun read with a great message to follow your heart. I look forward to reading more of Carla Stewart's books. She is very popular amongst my fellow Pulpwood Queen book club members!


    21. If you’re looking for a story about friendship and family relationships that is rich in character development, Carla Stewart's Sweet Dreams is for you. Stewart writes with a charm and winsome warmth that will draw you in early, and her unique use of imagery does a great job of bringing a different time and place to life. Sweet Dreams provides a sweet change of pace. A pace you just might love.


    22. I'm not sure why this book was on the hold shelf for me at the library. I don't remember ordering it, and nothing in the description or cover indicated that it was my kind of read. But I read it anyway. It was an alright story, very predictable. The writing was ok. For sure not one I will remember in a year. Perhaps this would appeal to Americans more?


    23. The author of this book was quite in touch with her characters she was writing about. She knew exactly what she was talking about and she used exquisite words to describe her characters. I would definitively read another one of her books if i can.
