THE LIVING ROOM by Robert Whitlow
Amy Clarke’s dreams are coming true—and that’s the problem.
Legal secretary by day, romance novelist by night, Amy Clarke lives with a precious secret. For years, she has traveled to a holy place in her dreams—a sublime place she calls the Living Room. When she awakes, her faith and energy are supernaturally restored. And when she dreams, she receives vibrant inspiration for her novels.
As she begins to write her third book, the nature of her dreams shifts. Gone are the literary signposts. Instead, her dreams are studded with scenes that foreshadow real life. Before long, the scenes begin to spill over into her waking hours too.
As Amy becomes entangled in a high stakes case at work, her visions take on a dark hue—implicating someone dear to her, causing her to question everything. And convincing her to trust someone with his own shadowy secrets.
Things are not always what they seem. But as fiction, dreams, and real life begin to overlap, Amy must stop dreaming and act to prevent tragedy.
Whitlow is a favorite author of mine, I've not been disappointed in any of his books! This one is a fascinating mystery with some of the best characters he's conceived so far. I read page after page and hated to stop.
Amy gets her inspiration for her novels from a visitor in her "living room". Whitlow describes these scenes beautifully. The living room is in her dreams and when it gets to the point where dreams and reality overlap problems arise.
If you're in the mood for a well written, entertaining, dramatic, story THE LIVING ROOM is it!
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
