FAREWELL TO DREAMS by C.J. Lyons is an exciting Thriller/Suspense/Mystery. #1 in her new series, "Fatal Insomnia", and what a beginning. With her usual aplomb into the world of Medical Thrillers, Ms. Lyons has written a tale that is fascinating as well as action packed and thrilling. Farewell To Dreams is an emotional, intense, medical driven, ghostly adventurous and that is just the beginning. Dr. Angela Rossi finds her life suddenly very chaotic, not only due to her work, but she is being haunted by a nun, a dead nun about finding a missing girl. She is in serious danger in more ways than one. A very disgraced police detective will come to her aid and what follows if danger, romance, suspense, hope, evil, despair, and finding your own mortality. A thrilling tale from beginning to the very last page. The characters are engaging, as well as compelling and realistic. I love how the characters come to life, and how they respond to each other, their circumstances, and their situation. If you have ever worked in the Medical field you will find this tale engaging, realistic and believable. If you have not, well, you are in for a real treat! You do not want to miss a moment of Farewell To Dreams! I can't wait to see what is next in this intriguing series. Well done!! All I can say is WOW!! Another hit for this author. Received for an honest review from the author. RATING: 4.5 HEAT RATING: MILD REVIEWED BY: AprilR, courtesy of My Book Addiction and More

I have enjoyed reading C.J. Lyons books, and this one will not disappoint you either. From the very beginning you will not want to put this book down until you have read the very last page. What makes her books so great is the way that she gets you so involved with her characters, and their relationships. You feel like you know these people. The story starts with Angela Rossi, who is an ER doctor; she feels that there are strange things that are happenings in her ER room. She meets Detective Matthew Ryder, who is a patient who is also assigned to work with the Advocacy Center.   The ER and the Advocacy Center has been dealing with attacks on young women whom have all been tortured and they all seem to have some type of mental issues.  Angela's is having problem with her family which has bought on more stress in her life. As time goes on things get more compounded   because she hasn’t been sleeping or eating. As time goes on her symptoms are getting worse.  Angela finally decides to find out what is going on with her health.  C J Lyons, she has done a great job in describing what is going through Angela mind as she goes to see her neurologist. Whatever is causing the problem could be the end of her ER career or not. Her neurologist is a very close friend and Angela knows that her friend will tell her the truth on what she needs to know. Angela neurologist explains how fatal insomnia can be and how it can affect her life…  If you are looking for a book that has a lot of medical scenes, that   has some elements of being romantic, suspense, and a thriller. Than this book is for you, and if you haven’t read any of C J Lyons books. Now is the time, because she has a unique way of  taking you on a roller coaster ride, that has a lot of twists and  turn that will leave with wanting more….!

I'm obviously in the minority here but I thought the book was boring. It was too far-fetched and I couldn't get a feel for any of the characters especially the main character, Dr. Rossi. I was looking forward to this series but won't be reading books 2 & 3.

I can't express in words how much I enjoyed Farewell to Dreams by C.J. Lyons. I've read hundreds of books and this one gripped me in it's spell on the first few pages. The more I read, the more hooked I became. I finished the book lastnight (actually at 3am) because I could not put it down. Such an unusual story and marvelous characters. I just started the 2nd book and am hoping that our wonderful heroine survives. Thank you C.J. for writing such a powerful story. I want more.

Yet, another winner from Lyons. I know when I venture into Lyons world, I am for a great ride. One of my peeves is when a review all but tells you the story, that is not for me. Did I like the book? Yes. Will I tell my friends about it? Yes. I believe every emotion was brought out while reading this book. I am pulling for my favorite couple to endure. I am eagerly awaiting Raging Dawn. J.

Starts out slow and then, boom, the action doesn't stop. Interesting story line and great characters. This is just the beginning of the story, part two A Raging Dawn coming soon. Well written as all the other books by this author, characters you can identify with, and a plot with lots of twists.

This started a little slow to me because I wasn't sure where she was going, but by the second chapter it was grabbing me and kept it up to the end :)

In Farewell to Dreams, Ms. Lyons takes you on quite the ride. Dr. Angela Rossi starts having unexplained episodes of relating to dead and nearly dead patients and feels compelled to act on them in order to help them. What is causing them? And does she dare confide in anyone about them? One of the patients is a Nun that begs her to save the girl, which starts the adventure on trying to find who the girl is and try to save her. It is an edge of your seat read that you will have a hard time putting down until you finish it. You won't be sorry to read another great book by CJ Lyons!

Wow! What a ride! And, it never stops. CJ Lyons is a very talented author. This book was jam packed with characters, situations, suspense, emotions and heart. So take a big breath before you "dive" in to this one. You won't be disappointed.
