Book Description

“If We Dare to Dream is captivating! Collette Scott delivers an emotional roller coaster ride of love, anger, guilt and suspense…. Addictive to the very end!”

- KC Stone, author of Replaced by a Stranger.

“Wow! I have to say after reading Forever Sunshine I didn't think I would read a book as well written as that again. Collette has done it again!... Collette writes so well that you can visualise what is happening in your head, as though seeing the action on TV or in a film, but better! I feel so privileged at being allowed to read this book before it has even officially been published.”


Meet the Evans family:

A family torn apart by war and misfortune meets a family held together by the bonds of love.

Two families entwine after one fateful night changes their lives forever. Andrew Sheehan, former elite soldier, returns home from war and is suddenly accused of murder. Only Jamie Evans can prove his innocence.

What would you do?

A single meeting, the memory of one night, holds the key to a murder. If Jamie is correct, she gives a hero back his life. If she is wrong, she risks freeing a murderer from prison. Trusting her instincts, Jamie puts her life on hold and strives to free Andrew despite her family’s misgivings. Determined to do what is right, she vows to help him get his life back on track.

Andrew, feeling betrayed by the country he nearly died protecting, fights the demons he carries in an effort to make things work with Jamie and repair the fractured relationship with his brother Adam, who bears his own battle scars.

Dare he dream?

With Jamie and her family’s help, Andrew begins to pick up the pieces of his shattered life. Realizing that there is more to life than bitterness and resentment, he starts over again determined to make the best of his experiences. But the killer is still out there, and Andrew soon finds that he is haunting him still.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Buy Excellent Heartwarming Book! 16 Nov. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
An ex-military man stands accused of murdering a young drunken woman by the name of Kit he met at a local bar, the only alibi he has hinges on the memory of another gorgeous young woman he met that night. He only has her first name Jamie. Andrew had briefly spoken to Jamie whilst they paid their respective bar bills. He had walked her to her car and followed her part of the way home in his gentlemanly way. Andrew didn't see Jamie after that night, even though he would have loved to, he was really attracted to her that night he had been unable to take his eyes from her. However Jamie was moving away to live with her then fiance to a new job,new City and new life.
Andrew was sentenced and basically sent to prison to rot, it was a big change from his previously glowing reputation, , and was still plagued by the nightmares and honourable medical discharge from the Army. Andrew had seen the horrors of battle in Afganistan, and was suffering from the post traumatic stress disorder that had only recently been recognised by the army and that lots of troops had problems with when they returned home from the conflict. Prison life literally was draining the life from Andrew. His grandmother and lawyer David wanted him to fight for a re-trial, but he refused, that was until Jamie stepped forward.
Jamie had returned back to the safety of her family after her marriage and relationship failed. Initially she knew nothing of what had happened to Andrew, the man she had so briefly met that night and allowed to follow her home. Then she had heard that that very same man had murdered the drunken girl she remembered from the bar. Jamie cringed and kept quiet as she didn't want her brothers know how careless she had been to allow a now convicted murderer to follow her home.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something different 12 Aug. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was not quite what I expected - I had prepared myself for a soppy love story but actually got an interesting plot with a few twists and well formed characters. I really enjoyed it. It wasn't the happiest of topics and so I don't think I'll be downloading the whole series to devour but I would definitely look at getting them in the future.

I was pleasantly surprised.

What a great story. Something different from the usual crime/romance that I tend to read. I loved this and literally could not put it down. Thought provoking and brought a tear to my eye. An excellent read. Will be buying the rest of the series.
