Book Description

18 Nov 2004
Isabel Wright spends her days at the Belvedere Center for Sleep Research analyzing the dreams of others. Dr. Martin Belvedere, a pioneer in the field, recognized her unique talent for what he calls Level Five lucid dreamingand rescued her from a dead-end job at the psychic dreamer hotline. It's satisfying, lucrative work, but it can be emotionally draining at times. Especially when one of her anonymous subjects, known only as Client Number Two, captures her imagination through his compelling dream narratives. Secretly, she thinks of him as dream man. Client Number Two's real name is Ellis Cutler. A loner who learned long ago not to let anyone get too close, he works for a highly classified government agency with an interest in the potential value of lucid dreaming. And he has just been ordered by his boss to make contact with Isabel, who's been fired after the sudden death of Dr. Belvedere. Heading to California, he pushes his own fantasies out of his mind, determined to maintain a professional relationship with the mysterious woman who reads his dreams. But when they meet in the flesh, the dream becomes real enough to touch. And a waking nightmare begins - when a suspicious hit-and-run leads them into a perilous web of passion, betrayal and murder, and forces them to walk the razor-thin line between dreams and reality

2.0 out of 5 stars I hate to do this... 17 Dec 2004
By Detra Fitch TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
Isabel Wright is a Level Five lucid dreamer. She spends her days at the Belvedere Center for Sleep Research analyzing the dreams of others. Her boss, Dr. Martin Belvedere, had recruited her from a dead-end job on a psychic hot line. It only took one call for him to recognize her talent. Isabel is paid very well for her talent in analyzing the dreams of three special clients. Client Number Two is the one that she finds compelling, but she has no idea as to his real name or his job. Isabel has mentally dubbed him her "dream man".
Client Number Two's real name is Ellis Cutler. He works for a highly classified government agency with an interest in the potential value of lucid dreaming. His boss (Jack Lawson, one of the other two clients) informed Ellis that Dr. Belvedere has died and wants him to make contact with Isabel Wright. (Belvedere's son has taken over the business. Firing Isabel and getting rid of the dream department is one of his first decisions.) Jack wants Isabel on his payroll. Ellis has always been amazed at how well Isabel interprets his dreams. She has helped the agency on many cases and never knew it. Ellis has mentally dubbed her as "tango dancer".
Ellis pushes his fantasies of Isabel out of his mind and tries to maintain a professional relationship with her. When they meet, everything just seems to CLICK. It is like a dream come true; however, the nightmare is only beginning. A suspicious hit-and-run leads them into a perilous web of passion, betrayal, mysteries, and murders.
** First off, let me say that I LOVE this author! I own every single hard back that Jayne Ann Krentz has ever released and in large print when able. Her title "FAMILY MAN" is my all time favorite book of the genre. Yet for the first time ever, I am sorely disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars More Like Falling Asleep 10 Jun 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I am a huge fan of JAK but this was not one of her best. The story was so farfetched and too long. I only continued reading it because as a fan I was hoping it would revert back to her usual standards. I am afraid I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone, not even a diehard JAK fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best JAK this decade 17 Dec 2004
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
Jayne Ann Krentz is back dancing on the high wire in the center ring! This is typical JAK at her very best, but at the same time just a wee bit different from her usual range, pushing over more into her Jayne Castle territory. With Paranormal Romance hitting big numbers this one should do well for her.
It's a very clever story, a bit more intricate than some JAK's of late. Isabel Wright works at the Belvedere Center for Sleep Research at in "iffy" job of dream analyzer. She is a Level Five dreams, and has a preternatural talent of being able to tell everyone what their dreams mean. She is happy with her steady job and finally has money to splurge on things to change her life. She sees herself as a woman with so much inside, but fears the rest of the world dismisses her as humdrum. She wants a man to notice her, think she is a vivacious woman with a lot of risk and daring to her character. She has a new wardrobe, and a haircut Mr. Nicholas her hairdresser assures her makes her sexy. But with an ex-boyfriend still calling her Izzy and says her haircut is "cute", she fears her dreams - real dreams may never come true. Worse, her cushy job is on the line. Her boss the elder Dr. Belvedere has just died, and the Dr. Belvedere the younger is determined to take the sleep clinic into commercial application. Isabel sees this as a violation of the decades of solid research done by his father. When she resists his plans, he fires her, little understanding that Isabel is the key to the whole company and it's survival. Isabel sees this is a chance to go freelance, but Belvedere, once he realizes his stupidity, is determined to lure her back to the firm before it goes belly up.
