Katie Reid is living the quintessential Southern California life. A dream job and her college sweetheart Spencer, top it all off. Now, if only the nightmares would stop. Haunting her for months and getting worse, Katie can no longer handle them on her own.
After seeking help, it becomes apparent that she is dealing with something much deeper and much more sinister. Her only solution is to delve into a past that no one wants her to remember.
Katie soon finds herself drawn into a world mired in evil and lost innocence and Detective Marshall Avery must work to help her channel the pain and anger that he knows all too well.
But will he be able to contain Katie’s desire for vengeance that has begun to unravel her perfect life?
To be completely honest, I didn’t even realize this was a series until I looked up the blurb on Amazon. But it makes perfect sense that this could not be contained to just one book. I would have been very, very, very upset with that.
Poor Katie, she has been living her whole life not knowing something that had a HUGE impact on her whole family, but mostly herself. These nightmares aren’t just regular dreams, they are memories that have been suppressed for almost twenty years. Now that she knows the truth her whole life is changing.
Katie doesn’t know what to do, or who to trust. Spencer is trying to be supportive while telling her to pretty much forget the whole thing. Could you do that, Spencer? I think not! Katie’s life has been flipped upside down and she now feels as though she is losing the small support system she once had.
Stemming from this new part of her life, Katie decides to take another job in the agency she works for to learn more about actual case work. This bring her closer to Detective Marshall Avery, and farther away from Spencer. Detective Avery is trying to help Katie find answers, or more memories. However he can help her, he is trying it. Spencer on the other hand is giving up, and running away from this new person Katie has become.
After losing her fiancé, and gaining a new friend Katie finds her dreams staying the same. After practically giving up on it all, she receives a letter. Its from him. Now her dream comes back in full force, only better. This time she is able to identify him.
That’s where this book ends, and I go shopping for the next of the series. Robin Mahle is quickly gaining my ‘fandom’. I’m in love with this series and cant wait to see what happens next.
