In her dreams, a ghost demands to be heard...
Trisha Eaton has been plagued by mysterious nightmares ever since her parents adopted her as a young girl. She chalked them up to childish nuisances until they return-- with a vengeance. Something about the Drake house next door to her family’s apple orchard haunts her. Now, her night terrors and sleepwalking seem to be luring her to something dark. When a series of strange events crops up, Trisha turns to Nick Mackey. As the new deputy in town, Nick just wants to put his traumatic past behind him. An undeniable attraction for Trisha has piqued interest and has him wondering if a shot at a normal life was possible. But Trisha has somehow struck a nerve, and a long-buried secret. A secret that someone they know will kill to keep veiled. Uncovered answers only seem to lead to more questions in a case where nothing makes sense.
One chilling fact remains... some nightmares are all too real.

Small Town Ghost Story!!
It kind of reads like a gothic tale but it’s a murder mystery with ghosts.
Trish has bouts of sleepwalking and dreams of The Drake House.
Nick left the big city after a tragedy. He thought a small town would be better. Now he’s the new deputy. He and Trish clash from the get go.
So many secrets in this small town. A little bit of romance and murder everywhere.
This is one creepy tale. This author sure knows how to grab your attention.
This story is about Nick a policeman who moves to the sleepy town of Small Rapids after he shoots someone in the line of duty and Trish who owns an apple orchard with serious nightmares and sleepwalking to the nearby Drake House. Both have personal demons and live gets more complicated when one of Trish’s employees gets found murdered.
I really enjoyed reading this book, it was a fast pace, well written and fun to read with possibly a ghost thrown in. I did not have an inkling who the culprit was. A fun holiday read for me.
