Author Jayne Ann Krentz. Author Jayne Ann Krentz. DREAM EYES was an another entertaining paranormal romantic suspense novel by Jayne Ann Krentz. The story begins when Gwen arrives in Wilby, Oregon and discovers that her mentor Evelyn Ballinger has been killed by some sort of psychic weapon. I have read her Amanda Quick Victorian book and enjoyed them very much.

Krentz, Jayne Ann. She stood beside the open door of the SUV and looked at Louise Fuller’s small house. The wind was kicking up in advance of the incoming storm. The sharp breeze stirred the dozens of crystal-and-metal. sculptures suspended from the porch roof. The ghostly notes echoed all the way across the spectrum. Gwen glanced at Judson, who had just gotten out from behind the wheel. She knew that he was picking up the same vibes. In the rear seat of the SUV, Max crouched in his carrier and lashed his tail, making it clear that he was not a happy camper.

Gwen Frazier is no stranger to ghosts. She sees them in pools of water, windows, mirrors—any reflective surface—at the scene of violent deaths. But finding justice for the dead is something she’s not trained to do and a luxury she can’t afford. What pays the bills is her work as a psychic counselor who sees auras and interprets dreams.

The death of her friend and mentor, Evelyn Ballinger, brings Gwen back to the small town of Wilby, Oregon, and brings back memories she would rather forget. Two years ago, a killer stalked the members of one of Ballinger’s research studies—including Gwen. She survived, but two others didn’t, though the deaths were attributed to natural causes. The apparent suicide of the killer closed the case, yet Gwen knows otherwise. And now, she’s a suspect.

Enter Judson Coppersmith—a man of startling power and disturbing energy. Sent by a friend to help Gwen, the psychic investigator arrives in Wilby barely in control of his own talent and his own life, haunted by urgent dreams. His attraction to Gwen is primal, but there are secrets he must keep to protect himself from surrendering to her completely.

As their investigation into deaths past and present draws them ever closer to danger, Gwen finds herself going too far—into dreamscapes, into decades of deception, and into the fires of a desire too strong to resist.…

It's official. My days as a JAK fan have come to an end. Her writing has become so formulaic that it's beginning to sound as though it's written BY a computer, not just ON a computer.

I finished the book, but it took me weeks to read it. Nothing compelled me turn the page - dialogue was flat, the situation was so complicated that I couldn't recall from one page to the next what was going on and who the bad guys were or might be, and by the time I got near ending #2, I didn't even remember who the Bad Guy for THAT ending was in the story. I mean, c'mon... there are 'red herrings', and then there are dead herrings which just stink when you finally discover them at the bottom of the trash bin.

And, as at least one other reviewer mentioned, the ending just dragged ON and ON and ON and ON... By the time I read the last actual page, I could barely recall what the point of the book was.

SO BORING! (Good sleep aid, though!)
"You're a damn good liar," he said. He smiled. "I like that in a woman."

THE STORY: Judson Coppersmith is doing a favor for his brother by helping out Gwen Fraiser who has found a friend dead and needs help. Both Judson and Gwen have psychic talents and both are keeping secrets about them. When it appears that a killer has returned from the grave to kill again, Gwen wants to know who is continuing the killer's work. Someone appears to be using psychic means to commit murders that look like natural deaths and Gwen may be next on the killer's list.

OPINION: This is a story that really hinges on the suspense story. In that, the story does not disappoint. The story is twisty and has some surprising turns. The characters of Gwen and Judson really need the suspense story to keep the book going because they don't have much tension between them. Things are resolved quickly as a matter of romance and the emphasis here is on the suspense rather than personal obstacles between the couple. A good solid romantic suspense with some paranormal elements.

WORTH MENTIONING: Fans of Krentz's Arcane series will have a surprise toward the end of the book.

FINAL DECISION: This book is pushed along by two interesting characters who are both in need at the beginning of the book and a twisty suspense story that keeps surprising.

CONNECTED BOOKS: DREAM EYES is the second book in the Dark Legacy series. It can be read as a standalone although there is overlap with the first book.

STAR RATING: I give this book 4 stars.
I love JAK in all her versions & eagerly await each new novel. Each year I reread all but the serial romances from the 70s. I don't mind the plot recycling the other reviewers have mentioned. She does them well & her characters are very enjoyable. With all of that said - as much as I generally enjoyed Dream Eyes - there were so many vague references to Justin's trauma with his former employer I thought I'd forgotten it from an earlier story. I reread Copper Beach - nope nothing. I went online to see if there was a short story that discussed it - nope.

I don't normally expect to have everything spelled out - in fact I hate it when authors do that to readers. But I'm unsettled by this aspect of the story & annoyed.

I agree with other reviewers - so glad not to have the Arcane & Nightshade thing repeated. That drama was getting really old. There were allusions to it of course but stopped at vague hints.

Don't let this book be the first one of JAK's you read - there are so many great ones to read instead. One of my favorites is Absolutely Positively or her Mistress under her pen name Amanda Quick. Love the Jayne Castle one - Amaryllis!
I liked the book. Overall, it was a snappy and charming story. The best book JAK has put out in a while and her Dark Legacy series is definitely looking up. However, I'll be completely upfront- there are some flaws and some readers may be disappointed. For me, though, I thought the positives far outweighed the negatives. My impression of this book is that it had a really pleasant sense of JAK charm and nostalgia. It isn't one of her very best books (which actually isn't an insult because she has written some really awesome books) but it was enjoyable and worth the money I paid.

Sidenote: One of my recent criticisms of JAK's books has been the repeated recycling of material and plot points that I thought was done without much of thought and that recycling overwhelmed a basically weak or re-hashed story. I'll warn like minded readers- there is a lot of recycling in this book. HOWEVER, I think this book shows how recycling of material can be done well. If you want a completely original and innovative book- don't read JAK. She sticks to familiar territories and writes a lot of books in the same universe so a lot of elements do get shared. But, if you read and like JAK, this isn't necessarily a problem. For me, I want a good story that at least tries to be original and well-crafted. Here, JAK has taken several familiar plot points and elements but has finessed them- they are not the whole of this story. They are mostly minor points and they do not overwhelm the central story of this book. A story that I liked and enjoyed. Also, I enjoyed some of her recycling because it wasn't actually central to the plot- they were like little JAK presents peppered throughout the story for her long-time fans (the mirror engine, the cult, the geode- it wasn't all that relevant to the central story so their presence was just a little fun.)

My biggest compliment goes to the central mystery of this book- it was exceedingly well-crafted (for a JAK book) with several layers and offshoots that actually gelled together nicely. I'll try not to spoil anything but the book revolves around the murder of the heroine's friend. And that is connected to mysterious doings concerning the heroine two years before. Which is connected to... and so on. The investigation into the mystery was decently paced and the clues were handled fairly well for a psychic mystery. I appreciated that the psychic's had limits on their abilities and their abilities did not just expand to cover whatever the plot needed. The points of the mystery were actually well plotted and the author presented a reasonable investigation with leads and issues. The hero and heroine were brought to together in a reasonable manner- two degrees of separation between friends/family. The hero's back-story mystery was pretty minor and mostly irrelevant to the central story (which I like because you just shouldn't tie every thing together just because you can!) His back-story was used more as a vehicle to gauge the hero's growing emotional attachment to the heroine- the more of his back-story he gave to the heroine, the more he trusted her and respected her. The mystery neatly roped in one of the best secondary character's in this book in a believable side story (which seemed to have some nice fore-shadowing for the next book, perhaps?) And, then all the pieces started to fit together and there was more than one actual surprise at the end of the book that I didn't see coming. (I will say that some parts of the mystery were easy to solve- this isn't a hard book.)

I thought the heroine was a real plus. She wasn't plucky so much as she just came off as pretty mature and had a lot of self-possession. I liked her a lot because she was just so grown-up. She was scared but never mindlessly scared. She never defied the hero just because he told her what to do. She admitted to vulnerability without it being about her being insecure or whiny. She wasn't perfect. It was like one of those JAK-trademarked plucky, independent, loud-mouthed heroines at age 40 or so. She had mellowed and didn't have to prove so much to anyone. And, she had an interesting back-story that, I hope, foreshadows where this series will head next.

The hero was fine. Truly. Maybe I'm overloaded on Alpha males but this guy also came off as pretty mature. While he had the worst pick-up line I can ever recall in a book, he wasn't some growly alpha dude who is forever thinking about how possessive he is of the heroine. His most remarkable moment is when he took his father's suggestion about showing a woman you admire and respect their abilities and talents. That was nicely and neatly done.

For JAK's fans- if you, like me, got tired of all that Arcane romance stuff- then this book is worth a shot. JAK actually builds the romance rather than just having the leads' auras resonating = true love. They are obviously attracted to each other but neither is all that inclined to start a relationship. The romance is just fine. Again, it is not her very best, or hottest, or most charming (but, then, she has written an awful lot of awesome romances.) But, it was fine and was not a flaw for me.

I was really pleased with the return of JAK's trademark offbeat secondary characters! They are one of the best perk of her books. Here, Gwen and Abby's friend Nick is showcased- in all his suspicious, sneaky, insecure cat burglar glory. Please, please, please give us more Nick in the next book? I liked the heckling ghosts. I liked Nicole the deranged florist. I liked the hippie wind chime witch. I liked Thor the reality t.v. producer. I liked how everyone just despised the cat. They don't need to have a particularly big role so long as each secondary contributes something positive to the story's progression and they are memorable. And, here they all did. It was fun.

Overall, I think her readers will enjoy this book. Yes, it is nothing new or earth-shattering. But, I thought it was a really nice entry to my JAK collection. I genuinely liked it and was totally and pleasantly surprised by all my JAK nostalgia. I'm going to re-read Copper Beach. When I was reading it, I was constantly thinking about the story, itself, rather than thinking about all the other books she has written. She really did a great job on this book.
