Dive shop owner Tina Greene is recovering from the loss of her husband, which has left her emotionally shattered and with an intense fear of the water. When her ex-lover, who’d left her abruptly over a decade ago, shows up at the shop on leave from Afghanistan, it opens a new tangle of emotions. Her visions become more and more real. Is she going mad? Or is something else going on?
LOVED this book. It’s little wonder The Dream Jumper’s Promise was nominated for Best Indie First Book by IndieRomCom. I got hooked like a mahi mahi in the first chapter. The story cracks along at a taut pace, and it has everything: mystery, suspense, and a romance with deep emotional content.
5 Stars for The Dream Jumper’s Promise. It grabs you by the heart, and the throat. [Tweet this!] (And be sure to read to the end, where she’s got some recipes and a reading guide for book clubs)
