“The launch of an intriguing female detective series.”
Following a mother and daughter on the run, apprentice dreamslipper Cat McCormick goes undercover inside a Midwestern fundamentalist church. Is its enigmatic leader guilty of domestic violence? Did his right-hand man really commit suicide? Cat must tame her wild psychic gift in time to learn the truth…
Left behind in Seattle are Cat’s mentor—her flamboyantly New Age grandmother Amazing Grace—as well as Lee Stone, the childhood sweetheart she’d only just reconnected with. Will the two be able to help her from afar? And why is Cat slipping into Lee’s dreams across thousands of miles? Maybe the Ranger’s Iraq-issued PTSD, not to mention their fiery romantic connection, has the power to close the distance.
“A fascinating tale of mystery, romance, and what one woman’s dreams are made of.”

"A mystery with an unusual twist and quirky settings; an enjoyable surprise for fans of the genre." - Kirkus Reviews, read the full review here.
"It is a terrific story, very entertaining. The dream slipping was well handled and just right. When writing any paranormal experience, making it fascinating and at the same time, realistic, takes a special talent. It’s a solid mystery with a little romance thrown in besides. Conflict, pain, acceptance, and trust are a part of the story, occasionally sad, but always intriguing." - Mystery Suspense Reviews
"The author deals with sensitive subjects - scandal in a church setting, possible child abuse, gay issues – with a mature and kind view. There were some twists that added to the mystery and carried the book to the end. I think this is a good first book to introduce Cat and Granny Grace and her friends. I recommend this to readers who enjoy mystery with a touch of supernatural ability." - Martha's Bookshelf
"I thought the reader's voice was perfect for Cat." - Wall-to-Wall Books
