The Dream Jumper’s Promise
Excerpt from page 5
Tina took a sip
of the steaming coffee and wondered which problem to tackle first. The desk was
littered with bills and phone messages from creditors. Before she could open
another letter from the bank, Katie’s scream made her fly out of the chair and
run into the next room. She rounded the doorway to see a man grab Katie roughly
and lift her off her feet. The scream turned to a squeal that ended in a
giggle. This was not Ned, who was lean and scruffy and always looked like he
just woke up. This was an adult, a manly looking man--tall, with sandy-colored
hair on the long side of a crew cut and muscular arms. His crisp white T-shirt
that read Maui Parasail
stretched across a broad back.
“I can’t believe
you’re here.” Katie pulled away from the hug. “I miss everyone, you know? How
is everybody? I mean really. How’s Dad and Grandpops?” She stopped to take a
breath as her resolve to use fewer words went flying out the window.
good,” he said.
Katie did a
little happy dance, her smile stretching from ear to ear. “I hoped you’d call
this morning. I was just telling my boss that you’d come today. The diving
isn’t looking good. I’m sorry about the storm coming in and Tina said it’s not
likely he’ll dive tomorrow but the weather here can change in a few hours, just
forward, knowing an interruption would be necessary. “You’re Katie’s uncle, I
presume.” She extended her hand.
As the man turned
to face her, Tina froze. It had been a while, but she knew this person well
enough to know that when he slept on his back, he snored. And that he had a
small birthmark shaped like South America below his belly button. Far below.
She’d once pointed to Tierra del Fuego, and then inched southward, with her
His slightly lopsided smile was achingly familiar and
once so dear to her that her breath caught in her throat and produced a tiny
warble she hoped was inaudible. He must recognize her too. As their palms made
contact, Tina felt a powerful surge pass between them, like an electric shock.
She tried to pull her hand away as a curtain of darkness clouded her vision and
blackness took over.
“Kristina?” The familiar timbre of James’ voice
sounded far away, muffled, as she fought for consciousness. Sinking to the
floor, the last thing she felt was his arm moving behind her back.
A fantastic story about lost love, overcoming a death, an old love coming back into one’s life, all the while trying to figure out the dreams that she is having hoping to move on with her life. The mystery behind her husband’s death is causing her to stay in one place and not move forward regardless of what she does. Is dreaming or is what is happening to her real? You as the reader won’t be able to piece it together until you get to the end, and even then there are a few twists that make this a very good mystery book. You are taken with Tina and her plight of trying to move forward, but being stuck and the same time. When you come to the end and the story comes together you find out that not everyone who should have been on her side was and that is what surprised me. Just one of the surprises. The characters are likable even the dog, and the description of the scenery, ocean, and other sites on Maui make you feel like you are actually there. Like I said a wonderful story and fascinating book. I don’t like to say more because I tend to give away too much of the story, so give it a read! I give this 5 star.

LET’S WELCOME THE AUTHOR OF:THE ONE KRISTIN VAYDEN Rad-Reader: Why this story? Where did the idea come from? Kristin: It started out as a bit of a satirical piece, that just kinda teased about some of the current stereotypes in romance. But once I started, I had this really clear idea of who "Kirby" was, and how he fit into the picture. Meredith, the main character, reminds me a lot of myself, while Kirby has several traits that are strong in my husband's personality, so once I started, the book really flowed quickly and easily.
Rad-Reader: The bantering, joking, and fighting filled with a friendship. Where did that come from? How did you find that happy medium? Kristin: It's always hard to find that happy medium, in any book. But with Kirby and Meredith, it was their history that gave the balance the book needed. The fact that Kirby and 'Merry' had this antagonistic history really added a depth to the book that gave me a lot of room to mess with their r…
