Add to Goodreads
Between Dreams is an intriguing book where present day meets paranormal dreams.
Sidney is in love. Head over heels in love with Ray, the lead singer in an up and coming rock band. They have been dating for two years and they can't imagine life without each other -- not even for one second. With that said, when Ray signed his record contract, it was also said that wherever he goes, Sidney goes.
The two were living the dream until tragedy strikes with Granny -- the amazing woman who raised Sid. She knew that she had to go back home. After everything that Granny has done for her, the wonderful life she provided .. she felt that she owed her to be there for her. Therefore, against Ray's wishes, Sid headed back home.
Upon cleaning out her grandmother's closet, Sid came across a gorgeous green pendant. Sid knew she would never take it off, as it held memories of her precious mom with it. She began having dreams. These dreams involved a man with the same green pendant eyes. She immediately feels a connection to him, but she doesn't know who this stranger is. She only sees his eyes. Until one day -- those eyes come through her check-out line at Safeway. Sid was mesmerized and the stranger, later known as Aidan, is mesmerized by that pendant.
The two become friends, after turmoil in her relationship with Ray, due to distance. Ray asks her to stay away from Aidan, but there is just something that draws her toward him.
Is what Sid's feeling for Aidan, love? Lust? Mystery? What will happen with Ray? Will she forgive him and live her fantasy life with him? What do these dreams, the pendant, and Aidan have to do with one another?
This is one interesting, fast read. I read it in one sitting because it is that intriguing. Just be prepared for a cliffhanger at the end. I can't wait for the sequel. Please hurry Cynthia Austin!!!
