Dream Doctor (Dreams, #2) by J.J. DiBenedetto BOOK REVIEW

Dream Doctor (Dreams, #2)Dream Doctor
by J.J. DiBenedetto

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

**Reviewed for +Readers' Favorite .

Sara is getting married and staring med school, her husband Brian is going to finish his last year of undergraduate. What she really doesn't need is to be seeing other people's dreams, but that is just what happens to Sara every now and again. Dream Doctor follows Sara and a small group of friends through their first year of med school. At the same time Sara is having dreams, lots of dreams of someone murdering their professor. Actually it's not someone, it's lots of someone's and she can't figure out who is just dreaming about killing him and who is actually trying to kill him. J.J. DiBenedetto writes a humorous and quirky mystery as the clumsy med student tries to deal with not only the dreams about the professor, but the dreams of the neighbor next door and a few other close friends.
Dream Doctor is what I would call on of the new generation of cozy mystery stories. It is a lite, humorous and energetic take on the mystery idea all wrapped in the theme of the doctor, or med school in this case. Sara is a little hard to like at times. Sometimes she comes off bold and strong and other times she is mousy and unsure of herself. I find I like her much better when she is confident and secure. Sara occasional sees other people's dreams and sometimes that is fine, but sometimes she needs to do something about what she sees. J.J. DiBenedetto writes a unique concept in this regard, it's not every person she meets and it's not every night, there seems to be no rhyme or reason to why she sees the dreams she sees. For a light-hearted easy read this is a good book for that. If you like the cozy mystery sub-genre you will like this book.

****To be honest, I would probably give this book a closer to a 3 star, more like a 3.25 star rating, but I wanted to post my review of it, so I went ahead and rounded the rating up to a 4 star.*******
