Sarah is doing just fine… Sure, she’s been single for the last two years, and has to spend an uncomfortable amount of time around her ex-boyfriend, his perfect new girlfriend and all their mutual friends. And yes, her job as a PA to one of the most disgusting men in London is mind-numbingly tedious and her career is a constant disappointment to her mother. But it’s really okay. She’s happy(ish). So it’s not surprising that when Sarah starts dreaming about a handsome stranger, she begins to look forward to falling asleep every night. Reality isn’t nearly as exciting. That is until her dream-stranger makes an unexpected real-life appearance, leaving Sarah questioning everything she thought she wanted. Because no one ever really finds the person of their dreams…do they?
What I thought
Loved this. Such an unusual idea for a story but it works brilliantly, I particularly liked how the dream sequences flowed seamlessly with the rest of the story. Sometimes it was difficult to tell what was a dream and what was reality, which all added to the books charm. The characters were all warm & relateable – something I’ve found with most of the people in Giovanna’s books. I tried to take my time reading this, instead of flying through it as I usually do but I ended up finishing it in a day anyway – it’s just too good people! I highly recommend giving this a read, it’s perfect to relax with by the pool or on the beach but also offers the perfect escape which is handy if, like me you’re in the middle of a typical Scottish summer! It’s so easy to become completely immersed in Sarah’s world & forget everything that’s happening around you – ideal when it’s bucketing down outside! Dream a little Dream is definitely a new favourite of mine & I’m going to see if I can get my hands on a copy of the novella – Dream a little Christmas Dream simply because I’m not ready for the story to end! Definitely add this to your summer reading list!
