Title: Incredible Dreams
Author: Sandra Edwards
Publication Date: Sept. 1, 2010
Genre: Sci-Fi / Romance
Incredible Dreams is the story of a modern-day ghost whisperer who travels through time to save the life of a WWII fighter pilot and ends up jeopardizing her own existence. Izzy Miller prefers to call herself a spiritual therapist because she thinks it makes her sound more professional than plain old ghost-whisperer. She expects her latest project to be quick and easy because exorcising military personnel is pretty routine. But there’s nothing easy or routine about Captain Jack Baker-he’s a rather forgetful spirit and somewhat mischievous. And even though he’s intrigued by the US Government’s latest attempt to remove him from the only place he can ever remember being…he has no intentions of going anywhere. Plans to exorcise Jack are quickly sidelined when Izzy discovers a portal into the past inside her dreams and sets out to change his fate. Trouble is…when she gets back there, she can’t remember anything but her name. She still sees ghosts, but is far less accepting of her gift. And, to make matters worse, a demonic force pretending to be the forgetful heroine’s sister has her own plans-to steal Izzy’s soul.
My ****4 Star**** Review
Incredible Dreams isn’t the kind of book that sucks you in quickly. But, it does take ahold of you slowly, dropping little bits that keep you wanting to nibble off more. It’s the kind of book that has you constantly saying, “Just one more chapter.”
You get both perspectives, but it’s written in 3rd person. While I connected with the characters, I feel like I would have enjoyed this book a little bit more if it would have been in 1st person with a little more insight to what the characters were feeling.
The premise for the book is unique and that kept me intrigued. There’s a good bit of mystery meshed in, too, which left me asking questions that I really wanted to find the answers to. I enjoyed making guesses along the way. There’s also a twist that comes, but I did guess it before hand.
There are some very sweet romantic moments to look forward to, also. I really enjoyed these moments when they came. Jack really had me rooting for him! You’ll get a little bit of steaminess, but the scenes aren’t very explicit.
On the technical side, it could have used just a little more editing, and I would have appreciated some page breaks during scene changes that I didn’t always get.
Overall all it was an interesting and unique tale of time-travel and love. I recommend this to romance readers that enjoy a little bit of sci-fi.
