Before I Wake

An FBI undercover operation gone bad convinces Rae Gabriella to move near her hometown and work as a private investigator with another former agent. But the small town of Justice, Illinois, is not as safe as she thinks. Attractive and stylish young women, just like Rae, are quietly dropping dead in their hotel rooms, with money and valuables still untouched. When the next victim turns up just a few rooms away from Rae's hotel room, the grieving parents hire her to investigate.

    "not finished"

    The story line was good and interesting and we enjoyed listening to it but the end was weird --like the author just got tired of writing and ended it before anything was resolved. So it left us very unsatisfied. For me if the end is bad the book is not worth my time so I would not recommend it.

    "OK"

    I used the title OK for this book because it was just that, OK. I have purchased all of Dee Henderson's books on audible and this book was simply not her best. Her earlier works are much better such as the O'Malley series. If you are new to Dee Henderson purchase her earlier works prior to this book. If you read this book first you may not get a true understanding of how utterly talented Dee Henderson really is. This book did a poor job with developing a story line that was believable or interesting. I would not even classify this book as a romance or suspense; it was simply a mess.

    "BEFORE I WAKE- Where is the sequel?"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The book was great....until the NON-Ending.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I could have lived with the ending if there was a sequel. But it just left you hanging with no answers!

    "Great listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, a good story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Before I Wake?

    the story line was very exciting


    Have you listened to any of Tom Stechschulte’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes, he does well. I like that he changes his voice for each character. As well as puts emotion into it.

    "Not just a mystery story"

    The story isn't bad but it's interspersed with many religious references - mostly conservative protestant ones - so if you are not interested in your listening to be in that genre as I am not, then do not buy this one.
