What happens when six college friends find themselves re-examining just what happened to them ten years ago. In My Dreams I Hold a Knife is a thrilling read that examines what happens when a tragedy changes your life and the bonds you once had. With the focus on Jessica Miller we are presented with six friends at a college reunion forced to examine the unsolved murder that took place during their time together.
Set ten years after graduation Jessica Miller thought she could return to her elite southern school, Duquette University triumphantly with a persona that she wants others to see. This would be much different from the girl she was when she first left the campus when Heather Shelby died. Her murder fractured the bound she had with her six friends who she had been close with since freshman year. While she had hoped to move on not everyone is ready for that. Someone is determined to find the real killer and make the guilty person pay. When the six friends come together they will have to confront the night of Heather’s death and the years’ worth of secrets that each of them have kept hidden.
The story is set within two timelines with a dark campus setting and also a darker look at friendship, love, ambition, and obsession. This is a book that you won’t want to put down and you will constantly guess at what will happen next. I was so intrigued just by the write up of the story and the book did not disappoint. If you are a fan of dark reads, which are perfect as the weather gets cooler. The other thing I loved about this is the two timeline set up. I love to see how events interact across spans of time. In My Dreams I Hold a Knife is out on August 3rd so make sure to get your copy as soon as you can.
