Publisher's Summary

Sara Barnes thought her life was perfectly ordinary - until the night she began stepping into other people’s dreams.
Follow Sara as she learns to cope with this extraordinary gift (or curse) in the first three books of the Dream Series:
DREAM STUDENTIt’s bad enough that, thanks to her supernatural talent, Sara is learning more than she ever needed to know about her friends and classmates, watching their most secret fantasies whether she wants to or not. Much worse are the other dreams, the ones she sees nearly every night, featuring a strange, terrifying man who commits unspeakable crimes. Now Sara wonders if she’s the only witness to a serial killer - and the only one who knows when and where he’s going to strike next.
DREAM DOCTOR Medical school and life as a newlywed would be enough by themselves for anybody to handle. But Sara’s got another problem - her dreams have started up again. Almost everyone at the medical school is dreaming about the death of the school’s least popular teacher, Dr. Morris, and once again, Sara finds herself in the role of unwilling witness to a murder before it happens. But this time, there are too many suspects to count, and it doesn’t help matters that she hates Dr. Morris every bit as much as any of his would-be murderers do.
DREAM CHILD Sara thought she had made peace with her dreaming talent, but she’s got a surprise coming: her four-year-old daughter has inherited it, too.

Great for multitasking

The publisher's blurb does an excellent job of hinting at each of the books in this part of the series, so I feel no need to recap or give spoilers. I loved the writing and the plots were fascinating and interconnected. I read the audio version as it is very long (but no problem with maintaining interest/fluidity) while at a recurrent opportunity to multitask. The characters are really well done, and I have learned rather quickly to look for more of this author's work.
Heather narrates clearly and well, but I needed to increase the speed for my listening pleasure.

Pretty good

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I sort of liked these books. The last one was the best. I think that the author finally gave me the suspense in that one. But let's start with the first. With the first book, Sara is just going through school (as a normal student) until she finds out she has dream powers. I thought that this book was pretty slow. I think that the action really didn't come until probably the second half (at least) of the book. I was not fond at all of how sappy all three books are. I am referring to the scenes between Sara and her boyfriend. They were pretty ridiculous in my opinion. Though to be fair, I am NOT fond of romance books. So I found those scenes to be unbelievable and unnecessary. They really did not add to the books (in my opinion). I also felt like the author made Sara out to be really weak and unable to do anything without her friends and boyfriend. I would give the first book 3 out of 5 stars.
The second book was my least favorite. I felt like there was a buildup to a very anticlimactic ending. I was actually surprised that it was actually the end. I also felt like the author was making her seem like an emotional wreck for no reason. I do enjoy seeing the emotions of characters, but the constant crying, fainting, etc., is irrelevant and did not add anything to the storyline. I could not wait for this one to be over. I would probably give this one 2 stars.
The third book was the best for me. I thought it would be the worst because it is about Sara's daughter. I was certain that it would be silly and that I would hate it. I actually really liked it! It moved along at a much faster pace than the first two. The ending was even very satisfying. I was a little confused about the age of her daughter, though. I thought she was 3 at the beginning of the book, but then at the end, I think I got the impression that she was about 6. But I did not get the impression that a lot of time had passed. So I don't know what was going on with that. Or maybe I just missed something. Anyway, I really did enjoy this one. There was still a bit of romance, but only a few scenes were really sappy enough for me to be annoyed. I think the main reason that I get annoyed with those is because the author makes it seem like she cannot live without her mate and falls apart without him. I kind of felt like the author didn't want her to seem TOO strong. Well... that's the impression I got, anyway. I get annoyed when there's a heroine, but she needs a man to be strong. And all the fainting and crying in the other books was just too much. BUT I think that all of that silliness was diminished significantly in the third book. So I would give it a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars.
I received this free in exchange for my honest review.
