Dream Student (The Dream Doctor Series Book 1) Dream Student (Prequel)-Amazon $0.00 Other Retailer Links

Sara Barnes has her life totally under control. All she has to worry about is college exams, Christmas shopping, applying to medical school--and what to do about the cute freshman who has a crush on her. And everything is going according to plan, until the night she starts dreaming other people's dreams.

It's bad enough that every night is a theater of her friends' and classmates' secret fantasies. Worse yet are the other dreams, the dark ones featuring a strange, terrifying man committing unspeakable crimes.

As the nightmares increase, Sara's life becomes a blur of waking and sleeping, of terror and urgency. Because if she was given this dream-sharing gift for a reason, it must be to stop the killer madman she's come to know all too well. But how can she stop him when she's just a student, and they're only dreams?

Between adjusting to life as a newlywed and trying to survive the first month of medical school, Sara Alderson has a lot on her plate. She definitely doesn't need to start visiting other people's dreams again. Unfortunately for her, it's happening anyway.

Every night, she sees a different person and a different dream. But every dreamer has one thing in common: they all hate Dr. Morris, the least popular professor in the medical school, and they're all dreaming about seeing him -- or making him -- dead.

Once again, Sara finds herself in the role of unwilling witness to a murder before it happens. But this time, there are too many suspects to count, and it doesn't help matters that she hates Dr. Morris every bit as much as any of his would-be murderers do.

Dream Doctor is the first book of The Dream Doctor Mysteries.

Dr. Sara Alderson can deal with eighty-hour workweeks as a resident at Children's Hospital. Dealing with crises in the Emergency Room or the OR is second nature to her. But now she faces a challenge that all of her training and experience hasn't prepared her for: Lizzie, her four-year-old daughter, has inherited her ability to see other people's dreams.

After Lizzie befriends a young boy on a trip to Washington, DC, and then wakes up in a panic that night because of a "bad funny dream," Sara knows exactly what it means: her daughter is visiting the boy's dreams. Complicating matters is the fact that the boy's father is a Congressman, and he's dreaming about a "scary man in a big black car" threatening his Daddy.

Unraveling a case of political corruption and blackmail would be hard enough for Sara under the best of circumstances. But when she has to view everything through the eyes of a toddler, it may be an impossible task.

And then the police showed up and arrested her for a crime she couldn't possibly have committed. Twenty four hours later, after a horrifying day and night in jail, Sara comes home a different -- and completely broken -- woman.

Clearing her name is her first challenge, but that's nothing compared to the task of rebuilding her shattered psyche. And the only way she can do that is with the help of the supernatural dreams, the same dreams that have nearly cost Sara her sanity -- and almost got her killed -- in the past.
