Dream Kisses

Dream Kisses by Verna Clay
This is a delightfully sweet read. It's full bodied with interesting characters and an engaging story, easily one you'd want to read all in one sitting. The characters are loveable and just interesting. The author does a great job of really expressing the emotions of the characters without beating us over the head with internal dialogue. At times, the transitions between scenes seemed so abrupt I stopped to and went back a few seconds wondering if I'd somehow missed something. (I Listened to the audio of this book.) However, even that didn't distract me from being totally engaged in the story. Just a really great fun listen.
And, speaking of listening, this book was narrated by Wendy Rich Stetson. This narrator is new to me. I was offered this audiobook as an ARC and her sample was what sold me and made me decide to take a chance on it. And, Ms. Stetson does not disappoint. Her voice and interpretation of characters pulls you right in and makes you feel like you're right there. Her characterizations are feeling and real, her voice very easy to listen to and engaging. This book had women, men, teens, and accents and she expertly delivered them all while telling a story in a way that keeps the listener tuned in to every word. Will definitely be listening to more from these two!
