Sneak Peek Sunday – “Dream Reunion”

Sneak Peek Sunday – “Dream Reunion”

It’s Sunday, and also Sneak Peek Sunday!  You can follow along with a whole bunch of other great indie authors, all of who are offering up sneak peeks of their books, RIGHT HERE.

But since you’re here, you probably want to see a sneak peek from me.  And I’ve got one for you: this is from the sixth book in the Dream Series, DREAM REUNION…

I knew this day was coming.  I’m actually surprised it took as long as it did.  It’s been nearly three months since I put Lydia Saunders into a coma, and on Monday evening, four nights ago, she died.

I’m officially a killer now, even if no one outside my family knows it, or ever will.  I thought I had made peace with it.  When I confronted her inside of Brian’s dream, she would have killed me if I hadn’t acted.  I did everything I could.  I offered to let her go – to forget about everything she’d already done – if she just agreed to stop interfering in any more dreams.  She refused.  More than that, she would have killed me – by that point, she had already wounded me – if I didn’t shoot back.

I know it was the only choice.  If I hadn’t done it, I’d have been the one in the coma – the one who died.  And she would have had free rein to destroy more lives – including my husband and my children.  I couldn’t let that happen.

Even so, it’s been tearing me up all week.  Brian tried to convince me that the hour of uncontrollable crying followed by two hours of vomiting on Wednesday night was all due to hormones and morning sickness, but he knew better just as well as I did.

Later, he admitted it, and – like always – he said the perfect thing to me. After he helped clean me up and we were lying in bed, he told me, “I hate to see you beating yourself up, but you – you wouldn’t be the woman I love if you didn’t.  You were right, and you saved all of us.  But it still shouldn’t be easy, or something you ever feel good about.  That’s the whole difference between you and her.”  And then he kissed me.

He was right.  I killed another human being.  I can’t ever let myself forget that, no matter what justification I had to do it.  If I do, that’s a big step down the road to becoming Lydia – or something even worse…

You can buy the book on Amazon…right here!
