Review: Incredible Dreams by Sandra Edwards

Incredible Dreams is the story of a modern-day ghost whisperer who travels through time to save the life of a WWII fighter pilot and ends up jeopardizing her own existence. Izzy Miller prefers to call herself a spiritual therapist because she thinks it makes her sound more professional than plain old ghost-whisperer. She expects her latest project to be quick and easy because exorcising military personnel is pretty routine. But there's nothing easy or routine about Captain Jack Baker-he's a rather forgetful spirit and somewhat mischievous. And even though he's intrigued by the US Government's latest attempt to remove him from the only place he can ever remember being...he has no intentions of going anywhere. Plans to exorcise Jack are quickly sidelined when Izzy discovers a portal into the past inside her dreams and sets out to change his fate. Trouble is...when she gets back there, she can't remember anything but her name. She still sees ghosts, but is far less accepting of her gift. And, to make matters worse, a demonic force pretending to be the forgetful heroine's sister has her own plans-to steal Izzy's soul

My Thought
Izzy Miller had unsual ability. She could sense and see ghost, apparition, or spirit. She had helped many lost souls and convinced them to cross over to the next life. She did not have spells like Wicca or used high tech equipments. Spiritual therapist, that’s what she called herself. She was very capable in this field. So no need to wonder why, the United States Military used her service. A big fat bonus was offered for her but it was the challenges which became the main reason why she used her talent and answered all her clients’ demands.

One day, she was asked to “cleaned” one hangar. She could sense many creatures inside. In few minutes, all sprited and fairies moved away. But there was one soul left, a spirit of Air Force flyer with his unfinished stuff. Jack Baker never knew the way he died.What written in his files about the accident around the world war did not make him satisfied. It looked like there was a mist that block his memory. That made Izzy had to think harder to find a way out. Because she never met a forgotful spirit. Besides none of them were as old as Jack. Another problem appeared when she realized there was a passion toward him.

Incredible dreams was not the first book that told me about a character with a talent for ghost whispering. I have read some. So I was not that impressed much when her ability revealed. But I did wonder how she would solve the case. The more I read, the more I got surprised. I never thought that Sandra, the authors would bring Izzy and me to such adventure. The plot ran smoothly. The ending was also nice. Nothing that made me confused.

The bond between Izzy and Jack was written very well. I liked all chapters about them. Compared to Izzy, I prefered Jack. Not only because he was so charming but also smarter . Yeah, Izzy’s ignorance became something that bugging me. I thought she had lost her mind when she let Jennie, another character that you’ll find in this book, controled the way she moved.She should have done some checking in the first place. I wish I could shout at her. I know I might too emotional. Just cant help it. The appearance of her family was also awkward for me.

Although I found some holes inside, over all I enjoyed this light paranormal book.

However it does not belong to my favorite cover. I like the black car in the cover. It tells the book setting very well.
