    "Read Nobody’s Baby first"

    Susan Elizabeth Phillips uses characters that you met in Nobody’s Baby But Mine for this novel. This one is less predictable, and I enjoyed every hour of it. Anna Fields is an excellent narrator. This is a romantic comedy with a little suspense thrown in.

    "Another winner"

    SEP not only writes a great book but her epilogs are the best!!! I continue to enjoy how much this woman makes me laugh."I'm a fox, I'm a fox, I'm a fox." Thanks again for another happy ending.

    "Can't Beat this Duo"

    If you want wonderful, predictable, sexy, romance with a lot of family values and really likeable characters then this series regarding the Bonner family is for you. I keep checking the calendar, waiting for a credit to become available, and then buying another book anyway. I am addicted to the combo of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Anna Fields.

    When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!

    Story
    "Terrific, Mixed Tearful Emotion with Humor"

    I put off getting this book because it was very expensive or required 2 credits. Audible has recently changed it to only 1 credit and I am glad they did! This was a great story! I expressed so many different emotions while on the journey of this book. Empathy, sadness, anger, happiness, and desire. If you enjoyed other books by Susan Elizabeth Phillips this one will definitely not disappoint. The narration is never a disappointment by Anna Fields. I've read many of these books but have to purchase the audio version just to find out what expression Anna puts in different scenario's. I highly recommend this book as a one credit purchase but not at 2. Overall VERY happy!

    "LOVED IT!"

    As the rest of SEP work I have read/listened to so far, this book did not disappoint me.
    SEP work is just perfect! A good story, an interesting plot, and very captivating characters.
    And the late Anna Field is SO SO SO GOOD ! I can't believe the how talented she was! She brings the characters to life. I can not imagine listening to SEP's work narrated by another!
    This is a perfectly done contemporary romance. I highly recommend it!

    As a mother of 4 you have a lot of laundry. Audible books made washing a whole lot nicer. Walking isn't as painful either.

    Story
    "I Cheered by the End"
    What made the experience of listening to Dream a Little Dream the most enjoyable?

    The whole story. It tied beautifully into the Chicago Stars story line, but told itsown story which was altogether different that the ones before it.


    What other book might you compare Dream a Little Dream to and why?

    It was like two tragedy trains crashed into each otherand developed into a sweet, beautiful, loving, and trusting relationship. Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas and someof Robyn Carr's Virgin River series books are similar to this storyline.


    What does Anna Fields bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a unique ability to put emotion into the story from botha male and females reactions. The females responses send me intolaughter in unexpected places that I have to be careful where I listen.I find myself laughing out loud in the grocery store, walking in the park,and driving my car. People must think I'm crazy.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Want a good laugh and cry?


    Any additional comments?

    I've just discovered Susan Elizabeth Phillips and I feellike I've found a friend.

    "Definitely not her best..."

    This was not of the usual calibre that I have come to expect from SEP or from Anna Fields the narrator. There was none of the witty humour and the voice of the hero was not good. Anna Fields is usually brilliant and believable with male narration, but this book was a disappointment.

    "SEP doesn't disappoint"

    If you've read "Nobody's Baby But Mine", this book finishes out the Bonner brothers. It's a great book about a woman who will do whatever it takes to get what she wants, and what she wants is a life that is secure and safe for her young son. She has a backbone made of steel and the hero is a man who is determined to break her so she'll go away. Of course, she doesn't let him and they both end up better for it.

    I travel, work hard and listen to books in my commute to and from work. Finding books that I wouldn't have time to read easy to listen to.

    "Dream a little Dream"

    I have listened to thousands of audio authors and Susan Elizabeth Phillips is great. I feel that I know each character. The books are engaging and poignant. I laugh out loud and smile while driving to and from my job. I have shared experiences with the characters. A must read...
