Book Review & Giveaway! Dreams and Nightmares by Ann Werner

Book Review & Giveaway!


Dreams and Nightmares


Published July 19, 2011

In the first two chapters we meet two distinctly different characters.  Decker, who dreams of being a successful writer, meets her live-in boyfriend at a fancy restaurant at his request, expecting a marriage proposal, and gets instead, an awkward statement that he is leaving her for another woman and moving to Chicago.  Her devastation soon turns to elation when her manuscript is accepted and she receives a check for $100,000 and a contract with a top literary agent.

At the same time, we meet Albert, a career criminal who, in a bank robbery gone horribly wrong ends up in prison again.  The author keeps us guessing as he plots to escape by getting sent to the infirmary, and his hope that his girlfriend and his cousin will understand his coded message asking for their help.

I liked that the book was unpredictable.  I knew these two characters must have some connection, but there seemed to be none.  I didn’t want to put the book down – afraid the clues I was looking for were just ahead in the next chapter or two.  All strands come together in an unexpected way which keep the reader guessing right up to the last chapters.  I was not disappointed, but I’ll save the ending for the next reader to discover.  It was well worth staying up late to finish this book!
