ABOUT THE BOOK -
A sexy murder-mystery with a spiritual edge.
For most people, dreams are a way to escape reality. But for Cat McCormick, they're a way to get closer to the truth. Cat can 'slip' into other people's dreams.
After graduating college with a degree in criminal justice but little in the way of real-life experience, Cat moves from the Midwest to Seattle to apprentice with her Granny Grace, who shares the ability. Granny uses dreamslipping as a private investigator, and Cat plans to follow in her footsteps.
But forced to take work as a security guard, Cat discovers a mother and daughter on the run. Following the clues, she goes undercover in a Midwestern megachurch, where she finds redemption and goodwill amidst repression, hypocrisy, and murder.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
A widely published author, game writer, and journalist, Lisa has interviewed homeless women, the designer of the Batmobile, and a sex expert, to name just a few colorful characters. This experience, not to mention her own large, quirky family, led her to create some truly memorable characters in her Dreamslippers Series and other works, whether books or games.
Always a vivid dreamer, not to mention a wannabe psychic, Lisa feels perfectly at home slipping into suspects’ dreams, at least in her imagination. Her husband isn’t so sure she can’t pick up his dreams in real life, though.
With a hefty list of awards and publications to her name, Lisa now lives in a small town in Washington State, but who knows how long that will last…

MY THOUGHTS -
Wow what a fun, exciting, quirky, original story. I knew I was going to like this one, but I loved it even more than I thought I was going to! That was a nice surprise!
I am a Christian, and this being about a religious cult was perfect reading for me. Very interesting and very real feeling as Cat goes undercover in a young adult church group. Don't misunderstand my "real feeling" comment - this is magical realism/paranormal - so not so real, but the author made it believable and the characters are great and had believable personalities.
PS & BTW - I just LOVED Cat!
Slipping into peoples dreams, I don't think I would like that! I have known some people to have some pretty strange dreams, and I don't think I want to be there! I loved how many of the chapters started with a dream that she was in. Some of them were scary, some were sad, some were funny and some of them were heartwarming. Very fresh and fun idea for a book.
And just when you thought it was over... well I have already decided that I am going to have to read all up-coming books in this new series!
