A Box of Dreams (the collected Dream Series, books 1-5)


What if you could see everyone else’s dreams?

Sara Barnes has just discovered that she can.  And this gift – or curse – will lead her on an extraordinary journey.

Follow Sara as her newfound ability leads her into adventures she never imagined.  She will hunt down a serial killer, investigate a plot to murder one of her teachers, unravel a conspiracy between a mobster and a corrupt politician and face off against her nemesis: a woman who shares her talent, but uses it to destroy lives rather than save them.  And Sara will have to manage all that while finishing college, becoming a doctor and falling in love, too.

Here are the first five books of the Dream Doctor Mysteries, along with bonus material created especially for this collection.  Included in this set are DREAM STUDENT, DREAM DOCTOR, DREAM CHILD, DREAM FAMILY and WAKING DREAM.  In addition, you’ll find the short story BETTY & HOWARD’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE starring Sara’s parents.  But most of all, when you open this box of dreams, you’ll find romance, suspense, humor and plenty of heart…
















Read an Excerpt (from one of the “bonus” stories included in this set…)

The next picture is me, in my bikini – the one Beth bought me for my honeymoon.  It barely covers anything; I’d never have bought anything like that for myself.  To tell the truth, I’ve always favored one-piece bathing suits.  That bikini is the only one I actually own.

Anyway, in the photo, I’m laying out on a towel atop the sand in the lobby, with Janet Black and Melody Katz, also in bikinis, right next to me.  Brian’s in his bathing suit – and nothing else – sitting in the kiddie pool.

“Wow,” Beth says, laughing.  “He wasn’t kidding.  Where’d he find the sunlamps?”  There were four of them; two are visible in the photo.

“I have no idea.  I didn’t ask.  I figured that way, if he gets in trouble and there’s a disciplinary hearing, I can’t testify against him.”

“Good thinking,” Beth grins.

There wasn’t any trouble, although we did have to vacuum the lobby six times to get all the sand up.  But it was worth it.  My expression in the next picture – total relaxation – says it all.  It’s just Janet and me, each with a drink in our hand, and – naturally – a paper umbrella in each drink.  I didn’t ask Brian where he found those, either.

In the picture, we’re on our beach towels, surrounded by shredded paper – the remains of our MCAT review books.  Since they’re apparently changing the format of the test starting next year, there’s no point handing them down to anyone.  Tearing them up, page by page, and tossing the shreds into the air like confetti, was a lot of fun.  More than it probably should have been.

“It was really nice,” I say, remembering how wonderful it felt to just lie there and relax.  I barely did any schoolwork all week.  Just two or three hours of reading each day – that’s nothing.

I really needed the break, too.  I know I’ll have my honeymoon in June, but between now and then, there’s the rest of the semester, finishing my Senior Thesis, sorting out all the final details for medical school and getting ready for graduation.  Oh, and my wedding, too.  Can’t forget that!
