I have really enjoyed the previous two books that I have read by Genevieve Graham, so when she asked me to read and review her third book, Somewhere to Dream, I didn’t hesitate. Plus this book is about Adelaide. We first met Adelaide way back in book one. I have to say I’ve been worried about her since then. It was all the more reason to pick up this book. I have enjoyed the previous two books because Graham includes a touch of paranormal in her books.
I really enjoyed reading about Adelaide and Jesse. Adelaide has a lot to work through. She would rather forget what happened to her. She’s been doing alright working through her trauma that way and she isn’t going to change for just anyone. Jesse had a tragic childhood which led to horrible experiences with his father. Both Jesse and Adelaide have some issues and it was great to be able to watch them grow to trust each other and to heal each other. I also loved the inclusion of the Cherokee lifestyle. I enjoyed reading about their day to day and their ceremonies for special occasions. Like Adelaide, I flinched during the parts that were harder to swallow and enjoyed the parts that were peaceful and joyous. I also really enjoyed that we were able to spend time (although limited) with previous characters. Adelaide has visions like her sister Maggie. Unlike Maggie, Adelaide hasn’t embraced her gift. I LOVED the parts of the book that included her visions.
There isn’t much to gripe about in Somewhere to Dream. The only thing that may have detracted from my enjoyment was that because of the the nature of the healing, it felt at times as if the plot was dragging a bit. I do want to stress though that it is entirely understandable. Also it made the pay off at the end that much sweeter!
Somewhere to Dream by Genevieve Graham was an enjoyable read. I will continue to read the stories that Graham puts out and hope that there is a fourth book in the wings!
