Publisher's Summary

Everyone loves Jack Holland, but Emmaline Neal needs him. Her ex-fiancé is getting married in Malibu and, obviously, she can't go to the wedding alone. In Manningsport, New York, tall, blond, and gorgeous Jack Holland is practically a cottage industry when it comes to rescuing desperate women. He knows the drill, Em figures, so he won't get the wrong idea.

What Jack needs is an excuse to leave town. Ever since rescuing four teenagers from a car wreck, he's been hailed as a hero and the attention is making him itchy, especially since his too-pretty ex-wife is back, angling for a reunion. He's always liked Emmaline. She needs a weekend date? No problem. So when they wind up in bed together, Em chalks it up to red wine and chocolate cake, just one impulsive night not to be repeated. But Jack's pushing for more, and if she lets down her guard, either she'll get her heart crushed again, or discover that Jack's worth more than just dreaming about.

LOVE this series....best one yet!!

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

I love the Holland family, Blue Heron Winery and Manningsport....this particular book, although it includes some very sad scenes, in large part is laugh out loud funny. I'm hoping there will be another book or two or three.....Connor still needs someone, and so does Jessica.......just a thought.

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

Amy Rubinate is AMAZING as narrator of this series. Although the books are a wonderful read, she adds life to the character and gives each character a uniqueness that would be missed otherwise.

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

For the love of Blue Heron.

Great Series 1

Great Series!! I've enjoyed the whole family, small town, everyone knows everybody. Never realized that a hero would go through so much but it happens. I look for books narrated by Amy Rubinate. She can changes those voices so well.

I look forward to Connor's story. Not sure if he is next but I am going to keep looking for KH's next book.

Only okay

Any additional comments?

The idea of a rejected woman's attending the wedding of her ex-fiance is absurd. He was so very mean to her. There is absolutely no reason for her to go to his wedding to a woman who was also very mean to her. That is the beginning of this book. One of the other story lines, which is the male lead's tolerance of his ex-wife's attentions, is also absurd. These two absurdities ruined this book for me.

Laugh out loud funny and just a few tears

I laughed aloud during parts of this book it was such great fun. Yet the author was able to bring a few tears as some of the more difficult things Jack and Emmaline were each dealing with were brought to a satisfactory close. Any one who has ever struggled with a stutter or worked hard to lose a lot of weight will find some parts of the book especially fun.

Listened to this one straight through on a snowy day and plan to listen to it again soon! Definitely credit worthy.

My Favorite So Far

Would you listen to In Your Dreams again? Why?

Yes. Because it's full of good character in it's characters and it ran the full spectrum of emotions.

Which character – as performed by Amy Rubinate – was your favorite?

Can't decide. She is spot on with the guys and the gals.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I cried and laughed out loud.

Any additional comments?

Keep em comin'

Self-indulgent Characters, Couldn't Wait for it to End

I really like the other books in this series, but I couldn't get into this one. I found the characters and story to be rather self-indulgent and irritating. Some bigger issues were explored in the plot - PTSD, darker side of weight loss, indulgent and crazy ex-wife, stuttering, irresponsible teenagers, and non-traditional families. But it just didn't hang together well and was overkill. Instead of being drawn into a potentially rich story line, everyone just came across as annoying. I couldn't wait for it to end.

Love And Humiliation

Would you listen to In Your Dreams again? Why?

I already have. It was a good book.

What other book might you compare In Your Dreams to and why?

Catch of The Day by Ms. Higgins also has several scenes in which the main character gets humiliated. Actually Ms. Higgins has cornered the market on humiliating her main characters......and of course you always root for the underdog.

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

She has an unusual voice, and I like it. Once you get used to her speech pattern and inflection, you soon discover she is a very good narrator. She did a great job with this book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The rescue scene had me holding my breath. But the wedding speech moment was just so painful. I wish she hadn't included it.
