Sweet Dreams #23 Falling in Love Again and #24 The Trouble with Charlie

Sweet Dreams #23, Falling in Love Again, Barbara Conklin, 1982

Mariah's not one of those girls who's never been kissed.  She had a boyfriend.  Once.  It seems like a thousand years ago.  But Paul died, and Mariah thinks she'll never find anyone as special again. 

She hadn't counted on the school play, though.  Somehow her crazy friend Amy ropes her into working on the props.  Before she knows it, Mariah's the understudy for the female lead!  And she can't help but notice Dan Gordon, the male lead.

When Dan asks her out, Mariah doesn't know what to think.  He's sweet and funny and understanding—but she can't forget Paul.  His memory always seems to be between them.

Then Dan gets tired of being second best, and Mariah knows she must choose—between Dan who loves her now, and Paul who loved her first...

This is the sequel to the first Sweet Dreams book, P.S. I Love You.

Most people really like this book.  I enjoyed the beginning of the story, but then I gradually lost interest.  I found P. S. I Love You to be much more compelling than this book.

Sweet Dreams #24, The Trouble with Charlie, Jaye Ellen, 1982

Here's Charlie.  She has two big brothers so her dating life must be terrific.  Right?  Wrong!

Her brothers act like watch dogs everywhere she goes and all the best guys have been scared off.  Now only the wrong guys ask her out.  Charlie's about to give up altogether.

Then Charlie gets friendly with Andy, the terrific guy who lives next door.  But Andy's always helping her gets dates with other guys.  And what's worse, he's her brothers' pal.  Boy has Charlie got boy trouble!

This book is overall very good, although Charlie's brothers are extremely annoying.
