First, unless you buy this in person AND open the book to read her introduction there is no clue that this book is a reissue. This has become a huge frustration and irritation in reading many books of this genre. These are two stories: `A Friend or Two' published in 1985 and `No Competition' in 1987.
The second exasperation concerns the characters in the stories. The plot line constantly moves back and forth because of the ladies extreme stubbornness - really beyond all reasonableness.
The first story `a Friend or Two' is about a girl from a very wealthy Boston family. She goes to San Francisco and falls in love, both with the city and a man. Yet she cannot tell him she is wealthy - why? Even after they have become close and she loves the city she still says to herself she has to return to Boston. No reason is ever given. It never makes sense that revealing her wealth even after they profess their love will ruin their relationship. She keeps saying she'll lose him if she tells him. He of course has a secret too.
The second story `No Competition' tells the tale of an artist who has a twin sister. They are not identical. The sister is beautiful, but the artist is good looking too; but in the way she acts one would think she was repulsive. Even after she falls in love she cannot believe the man who has proposed to her really loves her and not her beautiful sister. It doesn't make sense except to lengthen the plot and storyline.
These are two stories that are more irritating than entertaining. However the biggest irritation is the fact that publishers continue to blatantly mislead the buying public by publishing books that have been issued before with no obvious disclaimer or warning.
