This is an intriguing book by Jalpa Williby. Williby is the proud winner of a Readers’ Favorite Book Award and has two other books in this series, comprising a trilogy.
The story contains high drama and heartbreak due to events in the lead character’s family. Somehow, the man of her dreams finds her and watches her throughout her life. He has been dreaming about her too and they have an unconventional relationship to say the least. There are some erotic scenes that are too much for the YA audience in my opinion.
I have to give this a four because the female lead is very strong in some ways but she lets this man play a role in her life that I am not sure she would actually be happy with. It’s possibly a cultural difference between me and the author though.
It is the story of a beautiful young girl, Tessina Sanoby who, on the outside, appears to be leading a charmed life. An only child, doted on by her parents, she excels in academics and sports. She has strong and enduring friendships with two of her high school classmates and gives back to the community by volunteering at The Angels, a center for challenged youths
But behind this perfect facade, Tess is troubled. For as long as she can remember she has been plagued by a terrifying nightmare in which she sees a girl, whom she can't identify, running - running as if her life depended upon it. Each time this dream recurs, it leaves Tess shaken and confused.
Then Joe enters her life. She meets him at The Angels where he is playing guitar and singing for the patients. His voice touches her very soul and in their brief encounter, they seem to forge a lasting connection. But then he is gone....
The plot of CHAYSING DREAMS builds slowly, allowing the reader to become fully invested in Tess's fate and the mysteries surrounding her. The writing is crisp and clean and the characters leap off the page. The ending will leave you thirsting for more and I have already purchased the second novel in this trilogy!
This is an award-winning novel and once you read it, you will see why. Thank you Ms. Williby for the wonderful read! Highly recommended.
Jalpa Williby presents a story using excellent structure and pacing. She unfolds the story intelligently, with detail and affection. Williby knows how to build suspension and keep the reader engaged. She brought the loose ends together for a creative surprise ending.
Filled with twists and turns, and some hot love scenes, this love story is anything but normal. Tess and Chris (and Gem, Tess's dog) all share one very large secret. Will Tess listen to her dreams and what they are trying to tell her, or will she follow her heart? I guess you have to read it to see… and enjoy the thrill of the “Chayse.”
