In My Dreams by Cameo Renae
True love transcends space, time, life and death. It's the kind of love that Elizabeth Hayes dreams of...literally.
It was happening again. The dreams. The nightmares. It was something seventeen year-old Elizabeth "Lizzy" Hayes thought she'd outgrown; dreams that would come true; detailed premonitions of how people would die. This time she dreams about her boyfriend, Michael Young, and soon discovers that he's been found... dead.
Michael hasn't crossed over because he was murdered, and now his murderer is coming for Lizzy. His spirit won't rest until she is safe, and as a newbie spirit, the easiest way for him to make contact is through Lizzy's dreams. When she dreams, it's as if he hasn't died.
Lizzy must learn to pull on her inner strength to survive horrifying events. Meanwhile, in the spirit world, Michael learns everything he can about his supernatural gifts to help. But will it be enough to save her?
Lizzy Hayes has loved Michael Young for most of her life, they've grown up together. While her life has been far from picture perfect, he never saw the differences in their backgrounds, instead he cherished her. When Michael's life is cut short on their fourth anniversary, Lizzy feels like she's lost part of herself. But in her dreams he lives on, she can see, touch, and smell him. She soon realizes that her dreams are the key to finding out what really happened to Michael and to saving her own life.
In My Dreams is a sweet love story. The love between Lizzy and Michael is innocent and pure. It's the kind of love that we all dream about, unconditional. Lizzy had a rough childhood and was no stranger to adversity, so I was a bit annoyed by her tendency to gravitate toward helplessness and relieved that Michael was there to encourage her (even in death).
The story started out strong and initially captured my attention, but I began to lose interest midway through, simply because I found the main character annoying. I wish that Lizzy would have been a bit more gutsy and a lot less codependent. There were a few parts of the story that were very predictable, but there were many surprises too. Overall I liked the potential of the story more than I liked the story itself (if that makes any sense).
