Synopsis: A young adult psychological thriller and contemporary mystery
Eighteen-year-old Brie O’Mara has so much going for her: a loving family in the sidelines, an heiress for a roommate, and dreams that might just come true. Big dreams--of going to acting school, finishing college and making a name for herself. She is about to be the envy of everyone she knew. What more could she hope for? Except her dreams are about to lead her down the road to nightmares. Nightmares that could turn into a deadly reality.
Review: Brie O’Mara dreams of becoming a well-known actress and showing her family she’s truly an adult. She’s living on her own at 18, but advertises for a roommate to help cover the expenses. In walks Sarah, very cultured, knowledgeable, and rich...Brie thinks she’ll work out perfectly. But is Sarah too good to be true?
‘Dead Dreams (Book 1)’ is an interesting psychological thriller which really does keep you guessing. Brie strikes me as someone who is functionally innocent. She dreams of making her family see her as a grown-up, but she doesn’t seem to have a real clue about the dangers in the world. Especially when it’s closer than she ever thought. I can understand why the author wrote Brie’s character that way in light of the events which transpired, but sometimes I found her naïveté to be too much. Considering all she goes through by the end of the book, I think Brie will have her eyes wide open in the future. ‘Dead Dreams (Book 1)’ kept me anxiously turning pages to a crazy conclusion. All I know is that I cannot wait for Book 2!
