Bound to the Truth (Dreamslippers – 3) by Lisa Brunette
What if you could ‘slip’ into the dreams of a killer?
This family of PIs can. They use their psychic dream ability to solve crimes, and that isn’t easy.
Especially when your client thinks she knows who the killer is, but you don’t believe her.
Did Nina Howell really fall under the spell of a domineering, conservative talk show host–as her wife claims?
Lisa was born in Santa Rosa, California, but that was only home for a year. A so-called “military brat,” she lived in nine different houses and attended nine different schools by the time she was 14. Through all of the moves, her one constant was books. She read everything, from the entire Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden mystery series to her mother’s books by Daphne du Maurier and Taylor Caldwell.
A widely published author, game writer, and journalist, Lisa has interviewed homeless women, the designer of the Batmobile, and a sex expert, to name just a few colorful characters. This experience, not to mention her own large, quirky family, led her to create some truly memorable characters in her Dreamslippers Series and other works, whether books or games.
Always a vivid dreamer, not to mention a wannabe psychic, Lisa feels perfectly at home slipping into suspects’ dreams, at least in her imagination. Her husband isn’t so sure she can’t pick up his dreams in real life, though.
With a hefty list of awards and publications to her name, Lisa now lives in a small town in Washington State, but who knows how long that will last…
Robin and Nina are a married couple with an adopted little girl. Nina is a successful architect and Robin is the stay at home mom. When we start the story, Robin is craving something more than just being at home. You also get the feeling that there is more to Nina’s side of the relationship. But then Nina is killed and Robin hires Cat and Grace to find the killer.
This is a great mystery with lots of action. Robin and Nina seem to have a perfect marriage from the outside but inside there are cracks. I loved Cat, she is a strong woman and I loved following along as they had to dig deep to find the killer.
I will warn you, there is a lot about the sex scene in Seattle, almost more that I really wanted to know. It did really bother me but I can see how it might be TMI for some people.
This is the second book in the Dreamslippers series that I have read. You can find my review for Framed and Burned here. Now I just need to go back and read Cat in the Flock. This is a great series and one that I recommend check out.
I received Bound to the Truth from Sage’s Blog Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
