Dream A Little Dream by Sue Moorcroft

What would you give to make your dreams come true?

Liza Reece has a dream. Working as a reflexologist for a troubled holistic centre isn’t enough. When the opportunity arises to take over the Centre she jumps at it. Problem is, she needs funds, and fast, as she’s not the only one interested.

Dominic Christy has dreams of his own. Diagnosed as suffering from a rare sleep disorder, disillusioned with his live-in girlfriend and discharged from the job he adored as an Air Traffic Controller, he’s single-minded in his aims. He has money, and plans for the Centre that don’t include Liza and her team.

But dreams have a way of shifting and changing and Dominic’s growing fascination with Liza threatens to reshape his. And then it’s time to wake up to the truth …

My Thoughts

As usual with Sue Moorcroft’s novels, you really get to know the characters, the hero sizzles from the word go and there is no end of conflict with the heroine but you find yourself really willing them on to sort things out.

I liked the fact that it was set in Middledip where I had ‘visited’ before with ‘Starting Over’ and ‘All That Mullarkey’ and was able to catch up with some of the earlier characters.

Getting to know Liza properly was a real treat. She comes across as a tough cookie, but underneath the bravado she’s just trying to protect herself and deal with the huge guilt trip she’s on.  Dominic Christy has problems of his own both medically and personally.  It was interesting to find out more about his sleep disorder – how this diagnosis had impacted on his life and how he struggled to come to terms with the physical and emotional effects.

The secondary characters and sub-plots add to the story line and weave in and out of the plot with ease.  There are some twists and turns along the way, with a great little surprise at the end.  I couldn’t finish without mentioning the fabulous Crosswind – what a great canine character he is!

Darcie’s Dilemma by Sue Moorcroft

How do you weigh one love against another? 

Things haven’t been easy for Darcie Killengrey; left with the responsibility of her troubled teenage brother Ross and a past of unhappiness and heartbreak.

And then Jake Belfast strides back into her life, as acerbic and contrary as he is exciting and handsome— he also just happens to be her best friend’s brother. 

Having parted on bad terms two years previously, Darcie and Jake now find themselves flung back together. Tensions reach new heights when they’re forced to work in the same place and the pair struggle to put the past behind them.

And, all the while, Ross is becoming increasingly involved with a dangerous influence, which looks set to make Darcie’s problems with Jake pale into insignificance …

My Thoughts

This is the fist novella I’ve read by Sue Moorcroft and it was really enjoyable.

I really empathised with Darcie, having constantly to swap roles of sister and mother but ultimately being left somewhere in between the two.  Not only that but having to deal with the return of her best friend’s brother, Jake – each with their own idea of what had happened in the past.  Would they ever see eye to eye about it?

I liked the fact that the novella didn’t just deal with Darcie and Jake but it also told the story of  Darcie’s brother, Ross, and from his point of view. A teenager who had a heck of a lot on his plate to try and deal with.  I felt his character was very well written and realistic.

An entertaining read where you find yourself very much involved with the characters’ lives and willing them on to a happy ending.
