Book Review: Dreamscape

Blurb:   Unable to deny his own translucence, Dr. Jason Bowen determines his lack of physical substance could only mean one thing—he's a ghost. Murdered more than a century before, Jason haunts his house and ponders the treachery that took his life. When Lanie O'Keefe arrives with plans to renovate her newly purchased Victorian mansion, Jason discovers, ghost or not, he's still very much a man. Despite its derelict condition and haunted reputation, Lanie couldn't be happier with her new home, but then she has no idea a spirit follows her every move throughout the day and shares her captivating warmth at night. Jason soon discovers he can travel through Lanie's dreams and finds himself reliving the days before his murder with Lanie by his side. It took one hundred and twenty years for love to find them, but there's that insurmountable little matter of Jason being dead.

My thoughts:  I am a sucker for a ghost story, especially in a romance. Dreamscape definitely caught my attention.  The fast paced, never ending action kept my interest. I had to know how this author was going to pull this one off, with the hero being a ghost and all.  At times, the book confused me, so readers may want to pay close attention so to not lose track of what's going on.  Once I got a handle on things and how the dreams and reality worked, I was well on my way to staying up all night, wanting to finish this book.

The ending surprised the heck out of me. I didn't expect it to turn out that way, but was glad to know things worked out as they did.  Dreamscape is a paranormal romantic suspense all wrapped up in one amazing book. Rose Anderson is a new author to me, and with such an impression left on me with this book, I am yearning for more paranormal romances from this talented author. Anderson's characters stuck in my head when I had to tear myself away from the book, and every time I had a distraction, the book lured me back to it. I've been looking for a great story featuring a ghost for awhile, and this one fed my addiction very well. 

I recommend this book highly to any reader that wants a great story, characters that are well created and easily to relate to, a spell binding plot that grabs your attention from the spot and doesn't want to let go until the end. My advice? Don't miss Dreamscape. 

You can get a copy of Dreamscape at Amazon, and other online ebook retailers.

Thank you for stopping by today, and I hope you'll check out this great book!

Until next time,

Storm Goddess

  6. Thanks everyone and a special thanks to Nikki for such a wonderful assessment of Dreamscape. I hope you all enjoy it too. This story is unique in that it's an Easter egg hunt. From the very first chapter, I've planted clues hinting at a story behind the scenes. So many throughout the book that you'll practically fall right over them.
