Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

Lake of Dreams - Linda Howard

‘Was this how insanity began, this gradual erosion of reality until one was unable to tell what was real and what wasn’t? Because the here and now was what didn’t feel real to her anymore, not as real as the dreams that ushered in the dawn.’

 

Lake of Dreams packs a ton of emotion and mystery into a such a short story. This one kept me on the edge of my toes wondering what was behind Thea’s dreams and how her new neighbor fit into the puzzle.

 

There is so much I want to discuss! But sadly I can’t, because it will give away the entire plot. I will say that Linda Howard did a nice job stringing readers along until the end to see how things finally played out for Thea and her mystery man. There were so many bits and pieces that had to fit together in their story and it seemed like the more that was revealed, the more interested I became in the outcome.
