Release day: Dream a Little Dream
Today is the official release of Dream a Little Dream by Sue Moorcroft (paperback, Choc Lit). Here’s the blurb:
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…
Sue dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
I loved writing this book. Readers of All That Mullarkey will have met Liza before, when she appeared as Cleo’s naughty little sister. I couldn’t leave her forever in secondary characterland, and so she got her own book. I’d left her at the end of All That Mullarkey all loved up with Adam–but it turns out that she actually hadn’t settled down at all. Both me and Adam were surprised by that. When I gave Dominic the rare sleep disorder, narcolepsy, it was pretty much on a whim. I wanted the word ‘dream’ in the title and I wanted him to have something that he was certain reflexology wouldn’t help, so that when his flaky cousin Miranda arranged for him to see a reflexologist–Liza–he would do so with truculent bad grace, causing him to butt heads with Liza from the first. But when I began researching the frustrating and fantastical life of a person with narcolepsy I soon realised that the condition would affect every aspect of Dominic’s life … with fascinating results. Damaged heroes are so much fun to write. They’re full of fight and grit and when they see what they want they go after it because they never know when life’s going to throw something else in their way. And they have a habit of knowing what’s important to them.
