Summary

Dreaming of a Stranger by Sheila O'Flanagan - a best-selling novel about taking destiny into your own hands.

If you enjoy the novels of Emily Bleeker and Jamie Beck, you'll love Dreaming of a Stranger.

When Jane O'Sullivan meets blue-eyed Rory McLoughlin, she knows that he is who she's been waiting for. All she's ever dreamed of is falling in love and getting married, but until Rory no one has come close to the ideal man she imagined.

And when Jane walks up the aisle to marry Rory, she believes all her dreams have come true. What Jane doesn't know is that she's not going to get the happy ending she expects. Dreams are not always what they seem....

“Don’t be Stupid”

A bit of an anticlimax at the end. Lots of threads of story which go nowhere.

Something which really annoyed me was the amount of dialogue where one character says “don’t be stupid” to another, or “don’t be silly/ridiculous/daft” - it’s so overdone that it really grated on me by the end of the book.

The author has some great stuff, but this one just isn’t it for me.

A PAGE TURNER

I love SHEILA'S books. The writing is excellent, & contains that Irish wit. Dreaming of a Stranger is really a look into over a decade of the main character Jane's life. You watch her go through her first job and apartment, dates, marry, give birth & more. I found Jane was sometimes happy, frustrating or sad. Jane feelings were genuine & I found myself hoping for better life throughout - even when I wonder why she makes some of her decisions. I highly recommend this book.
