When Jack hears that Emmaline Neal needs a date for an uncomfortable wedding he jumps at the chance for a few days in sunny California.
What he didn’t expect was how much he’d like Emmaline or how different it would be returning with her.
What I liked: “In Your Dreams” is a really good book. I loved the characters and, though it seemed like everyone they’d ever met was introduced in the book, it didn’t get confusing at all.
The plot is good and I loved the exes. They made this seem so real though I did want to smack each of them a time or two.
The steam is there but it’s not graphic or all-encompassing. Just a sweet side-note.
What I didn’t like: There is a little cursing & I promise you’ll have strong negative feelings toward Jack (or Hadley) as their relationship is very irritating.

I worked as a copywriter until I had kids and started writing fiction when my children graced my life with simultaneous afternoon naps. Writing, I surmised, was infinitely more satisfying than folding laundry, and so I started my first novel. Before long, I had finished Stalking Joe, whose title was later changed to Fools Rush In. Catch of the Day followed, winning the 2008 Romance Writers of America’s RITA© award, which just thrilled me to my toes. Then came Just One of the Guys (August 08), Too Good To Be True (Feb 09), The Next Best Thing (Feb 10), and All I Ever Wanted, summer 2010. More books are in the pipeline.
I love to write books about relationships, since the search for love and security is one of the driving forces of life. And I try to focus on an aspect that’s common, if not universal, hence the “stalking” in Fools Rush In and the crush on the unattainable man in Catch of the Day. People ask if I’ve ever stalked a guy. Of course not! Jeez! Come on! It’s fiction! They also ask if I’ve ever had a crush on a priest. Of course not! Jeez! Come on! It’s fiction! As far as being crazy about one of my brother’s friends, which is the plot of Just One of the Guys, well, yes to that one. But I’m not naming names. Dating a fictional man, like Grace does in Too Good To Be True? Um…can I take the fifth on that one? Whether it’s my own experience or not, I try to find something we can all relate to.
When I’m not writing, I like to be with my kids, goof around with my husband, read, watch baseball, ride my bike and bake. I suffer from chronic bedhead and an unhealthy (and completely understandable) obsession with Derek Jeter, shortstop for the New York Yankees. Like Millie Barnes, I run, which provides the neighbors with some real entertainment.
We spend as much time as possible at our family home on Cape Cod, swimming in the Atlantic, shivering on the beach, swatting horseflies and watching fish evade my lure at Higgins Pond. It’s as close to heaven as it gets.
