TO CATCH A DREAM
Author: Audrey Carlan
Publication Date: March 9, 2020
Publisher: HQN Books
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the worldwide phenomenon Calendar Girl series brings readers a poignant and honest look at life’s most complicated relationships. When their mother passed away, Evie Ross and her sister were each given a stack of letters, one to be opened every year on their birthday; letters their free-spirited mother hoped would inspire and guide them through adulthood. But although Evie has made a successful career, her desire for the stability and security she never had from her parents has meant she’s never experienced the best life has to offer. But the discovery of more letters hidden in a safe-deposit box points to secrets her mother held close, and possibly a new way for Evie to think about her family, her heart and her dreams.
I’ve never read any Audrey Carlan’s books before TO CATCH A DREAM, but I know for sure, this won’t be my last one! She hooked me from the very first page and never let me go! Audrey sure knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat while reading and I love when an author does that to me. Evie Ross and her sister Suda Kaye receive a stack of letters once their mother passed away from cancer. Can the story get any stranger than that? Oh yes it can, but you are going to have to read TO CATCH A DREAM to find out. No spoilers here! This is the second book in Audrey Carlan’s Wish series. It is a standalone, but reading the first book would definitely add to the story.
Evie has always been the rock for her family, but now she wants to find her own happiness. She’s afraid to fall in love because she’s afraid that that person will just walk away, just like everyone in her life has done. As Evie finally has her sister home, she is feeling that life is a little more settled. Then her all time crush, Milo suddenly starts paying attention to her and she does not know what to do with it. The twists and turns just keep coming. So much so, that you won’t be able to put TO CATCH A DREAM until the very end. My emotions were all over the place while reading and as soon as I was finished, I immediately checked on Goodreads for more of her books!
Overall, TO CATCH A DREAM is a book I can say nothing but fantastic things about. There is so much heart in Audrey’s writing that I was left with a huge smile on my face and my heart, very happy. All of the characters are very interesting and believable, so much so that I felt as if I’ve known them for a long time. I look forward to reading Ms. Carlan’s previous books that I haven’t gotten to yet as well as her future ones. There is so much going on in this story, but Audrey does a wonderful job of weaving all the pieces together. All of the characters will have you feeling sad and then smiling on the same page. Once you finish devouring this story, you are going to want to tell everyone you know about this awesome book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Harper Collins through Netgalley. All opinions expressed are my own and were voluntarily given.
