Framed and Burning: Dreamslippers Series: #2


Cathedral ‘Cat’ McCormick has an unusual gift. She’s a dreamslipper; able to go into the dreams of others. While visiting Miami, she finds herself thrust into a murder investigation when her Uncle is the prime suspect in the murder of his best friend. Using her experience as a PI, and with the help of her Granny Grace, Cat questions those who may have had such a strong grudge against her Uncle that they would kill someone in order frame him for murder. 

As she works her way through the murder investigation, Cat is fighting against the guilt plaguing her following her boyfriend’s brutal murder. She’s been blaming herself for so long, but she has to put those feelings aside so she can focus on finding the murderer and clearing her Uncle’s name. 

This book has an interesting concept: a PI who is able to slip into other people’s dreams. Lisa Brunette’s details and descriptions of the dreams are excellent and add some really interesting kicks to the story. There is a bit of inconsistency, however, with some scenes lacking those interesting details. This may take a little away from the book.

The reader is taken through a murder mystery that will leave them guessing until the end. Cat is an incredibly likable character, making it easy follow the investigation with her and there’s sympathy for her because of her feelings regarding her boyfriend’s death. Although the second book in a series, this book works well as a stand-alone book and will leave the reader curious to read the first book in the series.
