Title: See Me in My Dreams
Author: C.J. Mutch
Genre: Mystery, Suspense
Frustrated by the fact that since the accident that garnered her an orphan she had been plagued by visions that left the doctors and psychiatrist scratching their heads. While she had been told to ignore them, with time before she intended to head back to law school she had another idea. Rachel decided to let those visions lead her to what would assuredly give her the answers she needed to heal and possibly get on with her life. From the time she landed in the quaint little town of Gainsborough, a town she had never been to but had visited often, things had gotten out of control. The visions were now turning into a nightmarish late night walk abouts putting her into dangerous situations. It was clear by the way people looked at Rachel that almost everyone in town was upset by the young girl's arrival but what they feared most assuredly was what they wanted hidden might be exposed. The same could not be said for Emily, the owner of the B&B, who wanted nothing more than to bring the towns sordid past out into the open but at the same time wanting to protect the young girl that she felt an immediate bond with. Ben, the town's young attorney’s chance meeting with Rachel had opened the old wounds of a mystery never solved but also brought hope to the possibility of laying his own ghosts to rest and finding new love. One by one the secrets would be revealed making it impossible to keep what was buried from surfacing. Page by page revealing that the only thing that is certain is that nothing is as it appears.
I read a LOT of books each year and rare is one that I don't want to put it down. As I read through this novel I was struck over and over with wanting to know what was going to happen next. The author is gifted with the ability to keep a reader interested as they try to figure out the mystery. You aren't simply lost in the fog of little info, there are tidbits that come up that help the story along.
The twists and turns in this story will keep a reader guessing. The entirety of the book will be a revelation to every reader. Well written and paced, the book moves along smoothly. A creative story that brings to mind many of the best mystery stories of before. Recommended to all who enjoy a mystery. Recommended to those who enjoy stories about small towns with secrets. A great read for the summer.
