Tarry Awhile by Lenora Mattingly Weber
Beany is in love with Carl and they are engaged to be married, however, they must wait a year and nine months for their wedding so that Carlton may graduate from college. Beany becomes envious of her friends as she watches Dulcie plan a flamboyant wedding and Kay returns to Denver with her new husband, Joe. When Kay and Joe move into the cozy apartment over the Malone garage, Beany becomes even more jealous and expresses her complaints to Carl. Beany's pressuring discontent creates problems for the couple.
