On what feels like the worst day of her life, instead of getting an expected marriage proposal, Decker Jones is dumped by her boyfriend of three years. Her heartbreak is tempered with joy when she receives the news that after ten long years of trying to get noticed, top literary agent Lillian Cardone has agreed to represent her, moving her a giant leap forward towards the dream of becoming a bestselling author.

Albert Crawford is a career bank robber who is planning to retire to live the good life in Mexico after pulling one last job. Things go horribly wrong when a bank guard is killed. Three time loser Albert is arrested and sent to spend the rest of his life in prison.

Two different people. Two different futures. Neither can imagine what the future holds.

Dreams and Nightmares By Ann Werner Decker Jones has just made it big; she is now a New York Times Bestselling Author. So what do you do to celebrate? You buy the house of your dreams and begin renovation, maybe have a date or two with a cute guy. On the other end of the spectrum is Albert Crawford, career bank robber until it all comes to an end and he winds up behind bars for the rest of his life. These two are on a collision course, and only one will be left alive. Ok so I have to confess the title and the cover fooled me I thought this would be a paranormal book, man was I wrong. I really enjoyed the way that Ann Werner weaved the two stories together, two completely different lives and one epic ending. Though it is a bit predictable (well once you figure out it’s a suspense/thriller not a fantasy novel) it still manages to pull a few surprises out of the bag along the way. I wish there had been more to Decker’s relationship with the boy next door, due to the ending, other than that it’s a great read and fun till the end. I was sent a free copy of this book for an honest review.

For most of the book, I had no idea how Albert and Decker¿s lives would intersect. That Werner managed to keep that under wraps is impressive. The book shifts from one character¿s story to another until they intersect in the last quarter of the book. The stories are interesting in their own right, but trying to sort out how they will come together ¿ and then watching them collide ¿ is what makes Dreams and Nightmares so compelling. The story is well thought-out and well written. The characters are believable and the descriptions evocative. I enjoyed this book a great deal and would recommend it to anyone who¿s looking for a novel that¿s neither fluffy nor weighty but just right.

This is a great thriller! I like that the author starts Decker's and Albert's stories on the same day so we get to know them and get a good feel for the characters. I love that the story wasn't predictable. I thought it would be as I was reading it, but I was completely wrong about how things ended up. I like that. The writing had a great flow and the descriptions were great. I would definitely read another novel by Ms. Werner. I got this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
