Publisher's Summary

Gwen Frazier is no stranger to ghosts. She sees them in pools of water, windows, mirrors - any reflective surface - at the scene of violent deaths. But finding justice for the dead is something she’s not trained to do and a luxury she can’t afford. What pays the bills is her work as a psychic counselor who sees auras and interprets dreams.
The death of her friend and mentor, Evelyn Ballinger, brings Gwen back to the small town of Wilby, Oregon, and brings back memories she would rather forget. Two years ago, a killer stalked the members of one of Ballinger’s research studies - including Gwen. She survived, but two others didn’t, though the deaths were attributed to natural causes. The apparent suicide of the killer closed the case, yet Gwen knows otherwise. And now, she’s a suspect.
Enter Judson Coppersmith - a man of startling power and disturbing energy. Sent by a friend to help Gwen, the psychic investigator 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.
As their investigation into deaths past and present draws them ever closer to danger, Gwen finds herself going too far - into dreamscapes, into decades of deception, and into the fires of a desire too strong to resist....

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. The performance was poor. I expect the best from J. Krentz and have for years. The narrator made the male character sound like a teenage boy. The tone, voice and inflections were a total disappointment. It made it difficult to actually rate the book fairly so I'm going to have to buy the book and read it myself.


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Change the narrator.


Would you be willing to try another one of Tanya Eby’s performances?

No.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Probably, just because it's J. Krentz.


Any additional comments?

Usually I don't care for dual narrations, but this may be one instance when having a female and male narrator could have improved the performance and made the listen easier to follow.

Can we say "retread"!!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A fresh storyline by Krentz. I have enjoyed her books for years, however in the past year or so - I have become very bored. Same thing happened with Christine Feehan. Basically a constant retread of characters with just little twist on the plot. Whether it is her Amanda Quick, Jayne Ann Krentz or Jayne Castle titles - I can now accurately predict her characters and plots. While the physic thing is cool, after awhile it becomes very predictable. Even when Krentz tries to change up the character by not connecting them with Jones & Jones and the Arcane series - the same "talents" and character types are found in this series. So boring, I gave up on it when I began to be able to exactly predict what was coming next. If you are new to her books - you'll like it. But for those of us who have read her for years - it has become increasingly predictable. I liked her better when she did single titles years ago. So, just like I no longer buy Christine Feehan, unfortunately, I think I'm done with Jayne. Too bad - she is a great writer - just needs really for real new material.


Would you ever listen to anything by Jayne Ann Krentz again?

If it were a totally different type story line and characters.


Would you be willing to try another one of Tanya Eby’s performances?

Don't know - wasn't too impressed.


What character would you cut from Dream Eyes?

They all were pretty flat in my opinion.


Any additional comments?

Same old same old. This is a pretty dead on retread of her Arcane book titled Fired Up: Book One of the Dreamlight Trilogy - insofar as the whole dream thing goes. Very similar "talents" for the main characters.
