Publisher's Summary

Return to 1930s Burning Cove, California, the glamorous seaside playground for Hollywood stars, mobsters, spies, and a host of others who find more than they bargain for in this mysterious town.   

Maggie Lodge, assistant to the reclusive advice columnist known only as Dear Aunt Cornelia to her readers, hires down-but-not-quite-out private eye Sam Sage to help track down the person who is blackmailing her employer. Maggie and Sam are a mismatched pair. As far as Sam is concerned, Maggie is reckless and in over her head. She is not what he had in mind for a client, but he can’t afford to be choosy. Maggie, on the other hand, is convinced that Sam is badly in need of guidance and good advice. She does not hesitate to give him both.   

In spite of the verbal fireworks between them, they are fiercely attracted to each other, but each is convinced it would be a mistake to let passion take over. They are, after all, keeping secrets from each other. Sam is haunted by his past, which includes a marriage shattered by betrayal and violence. Maggie is troubled by intense and vivid dreams—dreams that she can sometimes control. There are those who want to run experiments on her and use her for their own purposes, while others think she should be committed to an asylum.   

When the pair discovers someone is impersonating Aunt Cornelia at a conference on psychic dreaming and a woman dies at the conference, the door is opened to a dangerous web of blackmail and murder. Secrets from the past are revealed, leaving Maggie and Sam in the path of a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to exact vengeance.

When She Dreams by. Amanda Quick

Very enjoyable book by Amanda Quick. I have most of her books and have read them more than once or twice. I like the books that are written under her other names also. Enjoyable narration!!

Disappointing

Not sure how much was the narrator and how much was the writing but this one was pretty dull. Not near as entertaining as her usual work.

Disappointing.

Disjointed, flat and unimaginative. I am not convinced my favourite author penned this. There was absolutely nothing to latch on to. Just plum boring. I feel cheated.

The narrator did as well as could be expected with such a weak story.

Thoroughly delightful

I really enjoyed listening to this story. MS Krentz has once again proved her ability to craft to create stories to transport her readers to another world. I look forward to the next one. 😀

I love this series.

This Amanda Quick series is another series that I enjoy ONLY in audio.
This author makes the characters and stories very real.
The fact that some of the characters from the other stories in the series appear makes the stories flow seamlessly.
Loved this story.

Very entertaining

I have enjoyed all the Burning Cove books,; this one is only loosely linked to the others but was entertaining. There are murders and con men and a sweet romance and a powerful Packard. Morgan Gallett is the perfect reader and adds a lot to the story.

An enjoyable read but quite a light story.

Amanda Quick/Jayne Ann Krentz books are easy to read (or listen to) and quite frankly as formulaic as can be. It doesn't make them bad but it doesn't make them good. They are guilty pleasures, simply constructed: good versus bad, feisty women, manly but modern thinking men, a soupçon of paranormal ability, a slice of adventure and a sprinkling of attraction/sex.
I do enjoy this froth and this is one of the better ones.
The narration was good.
Not outstanding but still a pleasurable way to spend a few hours.
