We all have dreams. Sometimes, when Marilee Anderson has a dream, the nightmare can turn out to be real. One night she wakes up horrified at the murder she sees in a dream. The next day she’s the main suspect.
A woman is dead. Marilee, proclaimed on the news to be a person of interest, finds her clients turning their backs on her. The only person who seems to be sticking with her is the brother of the dead woman -- but there are things about him that don’t seem right. He comes from an abusive family and stands to inherit a lot of money - money he desperately needs - because of his sister’s death.
The police already suspicious of her, she should steer clear of David Nichols, but they seem drawn to each other and decide to find the killer by working together.
There are plenty of suspects. Some living right in Marilee’s building. Some lurking in David’s past. They’re going to have to find the killer because the police don’t seem to be coming up with any names other than theirs.
In Dream or Destiny, Lillie Ammann has written a romantic cozy that will keep you guessing as to who killed David’s sister. In doing so, she’s written more than a book about two people trying to solve a crime. She delves into the effects of grief and guilt, attraction and suspicion, compassion and evil.
You can read an excerpt or reviews of Dream or Destiny, then tomorrow you can come back to Straight From Hel and talk with Lillie Ammann. She’s going to tell us about the path Dream or Destiny took to publication. Plus, she’ll stop by during the day to answer questions.
