Waking Dream is the fifth book in J.J. DiBenedetto’s Dream series. Set two years after the harrowing events of Dream Family, it portrays a pleasingly settled world where Sara and her husband move into their first real home, and their children continue to grow. Readers starting the series with this novel will find a cool blend of family drama, intriguing mystery, and a climax of rousing terror, while those familiar with the series will delight in seeing the characters (and children) grow. Sara is a very genuine narrator as she ponders the meaning of life, family, gifts, guilt and responsibility in this book. And it’s a great addition to a series that really lets its characters and ideas take flight. Author J. J. DiBenedetto has mastered the art of seduction, providing clean but deeply enticing romantic scenes between husband and wife, and combining them with very real family life. Jobs are at risk. Spouses occasionally lock the door. Kids wake up in the night. Hard questions are asked of love and death. And wise suggestions slip naturally from the page. Meanwhile Sara slips, with her strange power, into other people’s dreams, and a woman in red might steer her into nightmares. I love the gentle humor, genuine feelings, family romance, and deep questions of this series. Why does Sara have this power? What should she do with it? And how will she cope? Waking Dream is an enticing mystery with great character, and I’m eager for more. Disclosure: I was given a copy and I offer my honest review.

Sara always assumed her special gift was something only her family experienced. However, when her dreams take her into Brian's work world, she discovers a lady in a red dress has the same gift. Unfortunately, this stranger is using her powers for harm, leaving a trail of pain. Sara must figure out who this woman is and how to stop her, before her family is hurt. The author has created a unique and fascinating plot that keeps readers intrigued through each story. The page turning suspense of this book will remind readers of the first in the series. Each book keeps getting better and readers will feel as though they are a member of Sara's family. Fans of the series will not be disappointed with this latest chapter. Notes: The author provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This review was originally posted on the Ariesgrl Book Reviews website.
