Liza Reece has ambitious dreams. When the opportunity arises to take over the Holistic Centre she works at, she jumps at it. Problem is, she needs funds. Dominic Christy has dreams of his own. Suffering from a rare sleep disorder, dumped by his girlfriend and discharged from his job, he has money, and plans for the Centre that doesn’t include Liza.
What did you like best about Dream a Little Dream? What did you like least?
I liked the relationship between Liza and Dom, but did sometimes find it taxing because Liza was so ready to find fault with him. When they get along, they do really well, like any normal couple. What I liked the least was how trite their talk was of dreams. "I have a dream. You have a dream." That sort of thing.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Probably less use of the word "dream." I think it was overused. They each had their dreams, but actually Dom's seemed more realistic and better thought out than Liza's.
What about Julie Teal’s performance did you like?
I wasn't crazy about her performance but it's better than other narrators. I don't have anything good or about to say about it. I would recommend that potential buyers listen to the sample.
Was Dream a Little Dream worth the listening time?
I've listened to it twice. I liked it enough to listen in the car and in bed, and I will listen to it again in the future.
Any additional comments?
I think Dom's medical condition really added a different aspect to the typical chick lit/rom com book. And I like how Liza treated him. Like a normal person and didn't push him away or try to mother him.
