Friday Fiction: Suddenly Love

 

Suddenly Love
Flanders
1984

This time our “meet cute” features our gal Beth hitting her guy–with her car. Fortunately, he is not hurt and she tends to the few scrapes with some basic first aid. Then the flirting begins. She then realizes she is hanging out with no less than superstar actor, racecar driver, model, heir to a wine fortune and general hot guy, Corey Fletcher. Oh yeah and he exudes “raw sexual power”. What is not to love?

Even though the couple on this cover look like they are in terrible pain, I think these two kids will end up together.

Friday Fiction: Wolf at the Door

 

Wolf at the Door
Gordon
1981

Again we have nice set up: Our gal Kelly is ready to take on a Canadian mining camp where she is to be in charge of catering for all those hungry miners. Her dad is sick and she is covering for him. Grey Scofield (yes, that is his real name!) thinks she isn’t qualified and treats her like dirt. Naturally, she is attracted to this jerk. You know the type: tough exterior but “misunderstood”. He just needs the right woman to unlock his “charm”.  By the end of the book these two are hitched.  Seriously, Kelly, you can do better, than a Bert Convy knockoff.

Brian Was Adopted

 

Brian Was Adopted
Sanford
1989

Yet another Doris book for your consideration. This time we have 8 year old Brian who was adopted from Korea by the creepy family with the disturbing head shapes and cult-like demeanor. I am sure regulars to the Doris Hall of Infamy will be able to predict the insipid non-story and be ready to brace for disturbing illustrations. For newbies to ALB, please prepare yourselves!

I don’t know what else to say but that these particular illustrations are bothering more than the other books. Is it the plastic looking creepy dad? Is it the “children of the corn” look of the kids? Regardless, I won’t sleep tonight with these “visions”.
