Publisher's Summary

Rachel Stone is a widow and single mother, broke and alone. Worse, her late husband, a televangelist, stole five million dollars, none of which came to her. Nor did she know about the theft, but it still makes her an outcast, and she is desperate. Then she meets Gabriel Bonner, who gives her a job. Romantic sparks fly, but love is never easy. Gabriel has a tragic loss of his own, and his family, fearing Rachel's motives, campaigns loudly against her.

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.

This is another lovely story with great narration from Anna Fields who effortlessly captures each character's voice.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Good characters, terrible story

If all the window dressing surrounding the main characters were stripped away I would have loved this book. Alas, all the extra stories detracted from a sweet romance.

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!

Dream A Little Dream

I really enjoyed Dream A Little Dream the 4th in the Chicago Stars series by SEP. I liked the first three books better than this one but it was still very good and got better towards the end. I love the narrator and the story line even though very similar and predictable in some ways is still very good and has just enough mystery to keep you listening. I look forward to reading the rest of this series and more books by SEP.
