Blog Tour: In My Dreams by Cameo Renae

Title: In My Dreams

Author: Cameo Renae

Pages: 248

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?

My Thoughts

I cried. I cried from the beginning to the end. I couldn’t help it. In My Dreams tugged at my heart. It’s one of the most memorable books I’ve read all week. The action jumps in right away and it keeps you going. I loved how Cameo Renae sets the right mood for each scene. The pacing was just hands down well done.

Lizzy wakes up, haunted by an ominous, frightening dream. Her boyfriend, Michael is late on the 4th anniversary of their relationship. She becomes worried but shrugs it off. Later that day, she discovers that he has been in a terrible accident and that he didn’t make it. To say that she’s devastated is an understatement.

Over the next few days, Michael comes to visits her in her dreams and warns her that he has been murdered, and that his killer is coming after her. She is also visited by Lucy, who can see Michael and gives her another warning (at his insistent nagging).

Lizzy is a strong, likeable and relatable character. She loves Michael with all her heart. She always tries to be brave and courageous, never showing much of her fear. She does what’s right despite the dangers. You can feel Lizzy's emotions right along with her

I wanted so much for Michael and Lizzy to have a happy life together. I don't want to give anything away but it's soooo hard!!! You need to read the book! I think I developed a emotional connection to it.
