In Her Dreams Series
Emily Chandler has a curse… she experiences the memories of the dead while she sleeps…
In Her Dreams is Joanna’s Debut series published in 2018
So, I have this curse… I experience the memories of dead people while I sleep.
One second I’m dreading that midterm in the morning, and the next I’m attending a ball that could be the movie set of an Austen or Bronte novel.
Pretty cool right?
Did you catch that I call it a curse?
See, not everyone lives a life full of joy, true love, and happy endings. Sure, I get to re-live the good memories. But I also get to experience pain, heartbreaks, and sometimes even death.
For a long time, I had zero friends so when I dreamed of Victorian-era Lucy (who just got engaged… eek!) I had an escape. And then Lucy met her future cousin-in-law, Andrew. **swoon**
My life felt less… tragic when the Lucy dreams started. Oh! And I met this new boy, Duncan and finally had a friend. (He’s easy on the eyes too…**sigh**)
But one night I changed he outcome of one of my dreams by accident and shifted my reality in a majorway, so now I have to make some important decisions about choices and control. And what I believe is right.
Emily’s memory-walking dreams are far from over.
Walking with Lucy was quite the ride, and now Andrew has some grand master plan he couldn’t be more cryptic about.
So while juggling school, her friends, and her former boyfriend who is still pretty great, Emily tries to convince her psychiatrist and parents that the dreams are over thanks to a new medication (that she isn’t taking).
Emily starts dream-walking about Isabella, a nineteenth century girl crossing the Atlantic. But she gets so caught up in Isabella’s world and the dreams that reality essentially fades away.
Can she bring herself back? Can she be happy in her reality and comfortable in her own waking skin when she isn’t along for the experience as someone else… in a memory that belongs to someone else?
Find out in the second book of the In Her Dreams trilogy, Trapped In Her Dreams.
The conclusion to the In her Dreams series
His smile widens. “Emily.” Did I notice tears prick his eyes before he blinked? “You’re here.”
“I’m here,” I sing in Genevieve’s gravely alto tone.
He pulls over and turns to look at me.
When he doesn’t respond I ask, “How did you know?”
His sly smile makes its appearance. “You did not flash your pout face and complain about your designer hat or designer shoes getting dirty.”
“Ah!” I try to push her back further. She resists at first, but recognizing how Andrew acts when I am present, she allows it. “Genevieve is fun, isn’t she?”
He shrugs, then jumps down from the car and holds out a hand to help me down.
Wrapping my arm into the crook of his arm, he squeezes once. “She’s not all bad. She is my way to see you.” He kisses the top of my head, and we walk down the lane. “I’ve missed you.”
