Sent by a friend to help Gwen, psychic investigator Judson Coppersmith arrives in Wilby barely in control of his own talent and his own life, haunted by urgent dreams. His attraction to Gwen is primal, but there are secrets he must keep to protect himself from surrendering to her completely, even as their investigation draws them into dreamscapes, into decades of deception, and into the paranormal fires of a desire too strong to resist. . . .
I re-read my review of Copper Beach and even though I wrote it, I don’t remember the novel that well. Dream Eyes, I will remember. I read this novel in about 24 hours. It wasn’t the mystery so much as the characters that kept me interested this time around. Gwen and Judson are an intriguing couple. You know they are going to get together but the by-play is interesting and entertaining. Everything isn’t out in the open with these two; they both have many layers. I found them both a little dark but likable.
The mystery element was well disguised. I thought I had things figured out two or three different times. I ended up batting 1 for 3. Ms Krentz really hid the clues very well but they were there. No contrived antagonist or convenient endings in this novel. It flowed nicely from beginning to end. It also connected to the first in the series, Copper Beach. I’m anxious to read the final novel in the Dark Legacy Trilogy.
The prices for Dream Eyes are a mystery to me as well. The paperback is a normal $7.19, the hard cover is okay at $18.78 and the mystery is the Kindle edition at $9.99. I collect Ms Krentz's books so I always get the hard cover. I just don't get the Kindle version being more expensive than the paperback. I'm finding that more and more and don't understand it.
