Book Review: Dreams and Nightmares by Ann Werner

Amazon summary
On what feels like the worst day of her life, instead of getting an expected marriage proposal, Decker Jones is dumped by her boyfriend of three years. Her heartbreak is tempered with joy when she receives the news that after ten long years of trying to get noticed, top literary agent Lillian Cardone has agreed to represent her, moving her a giant leap forward towards the dream of becoming a bestselling author. Albert Crawford is a career bank robber who is planning to retire to live the good life in Mexico after pulling one last job. Things go horribly wrong when a bank guard is killed.

Three time loser Albert is arrested and sent to spend the rest of his life in prison. Two different people. Two different futures on a collision course. Neither can imagine what the future holds.

My review
This is a great thriller!  I like that the author starts Decker’s and Albert’s stories on the same day so we get to know them and get a good feel for the characters.
I love that the story wasn’t predictable. I thought it would be as I was reading it, but I was completely wrong about how things ended up. I like that. The writing had a great flow and the descriptions were great. I would definitely read another novel by Ms. Werner.

Content warning: This book does contain some sexual content (not a lot and it’s not graphic) and some foul language.
