Psychic dream counselor Gwen Frazier is forced to return to
Wilby, Oregon, when her mentor Evelyn Ballinger sends her a
cryptic e-mail about something alarming she's discovered.
However, when Gwen arrives at Evelyn's home, she finds her
dead. Gwen knows it's not from natural causes, as it
appears. Evelyn has been murdered with a paranormal weapon,
and all of Gwen's horrific memories from two years ago come
crashing back, when a serial killer murdered two members of
a psychic research group run by Evelyn. Gwen was his next
target, but their confrontation ended in the murderer
committing suicide. Gwen is convinced Evelyn's death is
related to the events of the past, but how?
Knowing she can't handle the situation in Wilby on her own,
Gwen contacts her best friend Abby and Abby's fiancÚ Sam
Coppersmith (from COPPER BEACH, 2012) for help. They send
Sam's brother Judson, a talented psychic investigator who
can detect the aftermath of violent crimes and is able to
sense a killer's emotions. Judson is recovering from a
recent traumatic experience and dealing with some very
disturbing dreams. He's not sure how to handle being around
Gwen, an aura and dream reader, especially since he's so
strongly attracted to her. The intense sexual attraction is
shared by Gwen, which adds another dimension to their
already complicated investigation. As more deaths occur and
it becomes obvious Gwen's life is again at risk, their
search takes even more unexpected twists and turns. Time is
running out to solve the mystery of what links the past to
the present and catch the killer determined to finish what
was started years ago.
DREAM EYES is the second novel in Jayne Ann Krentz's
paranormal Dark Legacy series (after COPPER BEACH). The
exciting, suspenseful plot is fast-paced with well-executed
psychic elements and authentic characterization throughout.
Of course, the sexual relationship is an integral part of
any good romantic suspense, and this one will not
disappoint Krentz's legion of fans. Another masterful job
of storytelling by one of the best in the industry!
The death of her friend and mentor, Evelyn Ballinger,
brings psychic counselor Gwen Frazier back to the small
town of Wilby, Oregon, and brings back memories she would
rather forget. Two years earlier, a killer stalked the
members of one of Ballinger's research studies including
Gwen. And though she survived while two others didn't, Gwen
knows that Ballinger's death is related.
Sent by a friend to help Gwen, psychic investigator Judson
Coppersmith arrives in Wilby barely in control of his own
talent and his own life, haunted by urgent dreams. His
attraction to Gwen is primal, but there are secrets he must
keep to protect himself from surrendering to her
completely, even as their investigation draws them into
dreamscapes, into decades of deception, and into the
paranormal fires of a desire too strong to resist. . .
