5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining. 28 Oct. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Libby Foster is a bit of a daydreamer, as the title of the book suggests. She prefers to lose herself to her mind than rather deal with real life, because real life hasn't been kind to her so far - or that's the message I got, anyway. She isn't moody or self-pitying though, although she is a little sharp-tongued with her peers, which has some brilliant one-liners!

The love interest of the Libby is an English man called Jude Weatherington, and who Libby begins to fantasise about immediately, because in reality Jude isn't all that... or is he?
It was interesting to unlock Libby's secrets to see why she prefers the daydreams to truth, and why she is so mistrusting of happiness.

I loved that Jude Weatherington was such a `real' Englishman without being royal-family-posh as a lot of American authors seem to portray most English people. The little nuances and slang brought him alive for me, and I absolutely believed in his character.

I shall read more of Brea Brown.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely entertaining and enjoyable book 11 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I took Libby and Jude on holiday with me and we spent an entire day together by the pool. First of all, I haven't ever identified with a character as much as I did Libby, her idiosyncracies are so like my own and the overactive imagination too! The story of Libby and Jude is so true to life and realistic, that I couldn't help falling in love with it and rooting for them. I don't like to give away stories in reviews, just to let people know if I loved a book. Well I loved this book and recommend it massively!!

5.0 out of 5 stars bloody brilliant 4 Aug. 2013
By Laura - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A young woman overcomes some serious issues as she pursues a relationship with a serious cutie in Brea Brown's "Daydreamer."

Libby Foster prefers living in a fanciful world filled with mad, torrid affairs with the likes of Colin Firth and Robert Pattinson rather than focusing on her rather droll life. Until a hunky architect -- and a British import -- enters the scene. Libby's real and imaginary worlds are a war as she battles past demons to find a happily ever after.

This book was a complete win from start to finish for me. Fifteen minutes in, my face hurt from smiling and there were countless laugh out loud moments. At the same time, it evoked other emotions ranging from sadness, sympathy, embarrassment, anger and total happiness. I'm channeling my inner Chris Traeger (that's a Parks and Rec reference for those of you who don't know, which makes me sad) when I say I literally laughed and cried as I devoured this book. I was so completely caught up in the story, I snuck moments with it in a crowded bar on a Friday night, during a chill Saturday morning brunch and every other second I could find.

Everything from the character development to the pacing worked in this book worked. I was in awe of how spectacular this read turned out to be, and can recall few times I've been this gripped with a story. My only regret at the end of this story was that it was over. This is quite possibly one of the best books I've read this year, and I can't recommend it enough. (Just ask my friends who had to hear me talk about it on repeat at brunch.)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Discovery 4 Aug. 2013
By BrainyBlonde - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been waxing rhapsodic about this book to friends since I finished it a week ago and now I'm bringing the love-fest to a more public forum because I want everyone to know what a wonderfully unique, charming, and memorable read Daydreamer is. I instantly connected with Libby, the fantasy-prone heroine, and appreciated that the author gave her such a rich and complex backstory. She wasn't just some immature flibbertigibbet who didn't have a handle on reality; she was working through some major issues and escaped into her fantasies to find the companionship and happiness she craved. When Libby gets a shot at real-life romance with the hot, new architect in her office, Jude Weatherington (Yes, he's British and did I mention, HOT?), things start to get really interesting.

Kudos to author Brea Brown for developing the romance between Libby and Jude in such a realistic and compelling way. I felt like I went through all the important stages of their relationship with them, the fun flirting, the getting-to-know-you dates, the fights, the secrets they shared and held back. It was a roller coaster ride that I didn't want to get off! I was SO invested in these characters and wanted them to triumph over all the obstacles (both internal and external) and find peace and happiness together.

Daydreamer is one of those books that you hate to finish because it's so amazing and you don't want to let the characters go. I've actually been in a reading funk for the last week because I know it's going to be difficult to find another read that will capture my imagination and heart the way Daydreamer did. It's such a pleasure when you find a new author whose work is a revelation to you. And that's exactly what this funny, romantic, intelligent, emotionally profound book was to me - a revelation. I encourage anyone who loves Chick Lit, Romance, Women's Fic, or just a darn good story to read Daydreamer. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great new-to-me author 19 April 2013
By authorsam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For gosh sake--why did it take me so long to hit this book in my TBR queue? If I'd have known it was soooo good, I would have cheated long ago and bumped it up higher (which in fact I have done with other Brea Brown books now). The story of Libby, Jude, and their entourage is not a traditional chick lit book. The characters are people I know: flawed, funny, fatalistic, and with fetchingly endearing foibles. They come across so genuine due to Brown's a wry writing style that keeps you engaged from beginning to end. You will struggle with them and cheer their base hits as well as boo their errors (a little nod to the baseball allusions/experiences throughout). Pick this book up and read it. Don't tuck it away in your TBR like I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Loved it! 8 Mar. 2012
By Cindy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was pretty sure I'd like Daydreamer since I had already read The Secret Keeper and The Secret Keeper Confined. I was not expecting to fall in love with Libby and Jude- I laughed out loud, I cried silent tears, and I sat on the edge wondering about their future together. Brea Brown writes with such a natural style and her characters are so well developed and human. You can't help but to be pulled into their lives and start fantasizing where you fit in this story. I'm rereading my favorite parts, that's how much I like it. If I have anything to say is about the cover- can you get it fixed?

5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant read! 28 Feb. 2013
By sam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not surprised that I absolutely loved this book. Brea Browns writing style is so easy to read. I've loved everything I've read of hers so far. I've had many late nights waiting to find out what's going to happen next. I fell in love with Jude one of the main characters not because he's the stereotypical hero but because he is lovable and has his faults. I'm so disappointed that I've finished this book but at the same time excited that I have another Brea Brown to move onto. Please keep writing Brea!
