A successful self-help author, recovering from a devastating car accident, finds her life spiraling dangerously out of control in the face of a caterer's murder and her husband's ominous secrets.
Bryn Harper, an accomplished self-help author, is still recovering from a devastating car accident that has left her haunted by recurring, smoke-filled nightmares. She can't shake the feeling her dreams contain a warning. Her husband Guy couldn't be more supportive-- at first. After they move into a new house, disturbing incidents occur and Guy grows evasive, secretive. When a woman hired to cater their dinner party is brutally murdered, Bryn must find the answers to protect her own life-- and her nightmares may in fact hold the key.

Pretty boring overall. I know thrillers you have to wait for it to get good but the ending wasn't worth the read.

The nightmares Bryn suffers after a serious car accident are awful, but not surprising. But the smoke-filled visions seem less about the accident, and more about her future.

BOR-ING. The book suffers from too much: too many pages, too much exposition, too many red herrings, too many times returning to the same thing; it also suffers from too little -- too little focus on the elements that could make it truly interesting, and too little sense on the part of the main character, Bryn. This psychological thriller could have been much better, if the author had focused on just one of the stumbling blocks for Bryn: surviving a significant car crash, where the driver died; her stultifying lethargy; spending the summer in upstate New York with her new husband, with whom she has had only a commuter relationship until now; the murder of a local caterer; writer's block; the intrigues of the arts community in the town. All together, it makes for a muddy mess.
