Blog Tour/Review: Framed and Burning by Lisa Brunette

Lisa Brunette is gearing up for her new release of Framed and Burning: Book Two in the Dreamslippers Series.

Framed and Burning, Book Two in the Dreamslippers Series
Published by Sky Harbor LLC
November 27, 2015 pub date
Genre: Mystery

Book Synopsis:

The Dreamslippers are a family of private investigators who have the ability to "slip" into your dreams. The first book in the series, Cat in the Flock, was published to critical acclaim and is trending at 4.5 stars on Amazon with 35 reviews. In Framed and Burning, someone sets fire to Mick Travers’s art studio, killing his assistant, and Mick won't give an alibi. His dreamslipping sister--the eccentric Amazing Grace--is convinced he's innocent, but her granddaughter and the police aren't so sure. Was it Mick, or is something darker behind the fire?


"Framed and Burning is the second book in the Dreamslippers series. It’s easy to follow and hard to put down, making readers who may not have read the first book race back to give it a try!"  - InD'tale Magazine

"Lisa Brunette continues to develop vibrant characters in a stunning story that will keep you reading well past your bedtime!" - On My Kindle

Grace and her granddaughter, Cat, live in Seattle. Cat lost someone dear to her a year ago, so Grace took her to Miami, where her brother, Mick, is an artist. While there, someone burns down Mick's studio and his friend and assistant, Donnie, dies in the fire. Mick won't give an alibi so he is a suspect which prompts Grace and Cat to set off on their own to figure out the truth. 

Grace, Cat and Mick are all dreamslippers, which means they have the ability to slip into other people's dreams. It's not a complete advantage in that the dreams they witness are open to interpretation. Even though they have been dreamslippers for years, there are new things they realize they are able to do with it. They meet some interesting characters along the way to learning what happened the night of the fire. 

This mystery is full of twists and turns. Just when they thought the case was solved, there were more questions that led them to believe they weren't done yet. Grace and Cat make a great crime solving team and their dreamslipping abilities certainly come in handy. Overall, this was an interesting story but it had some content that I don't personally enjoy reading.

Content: Swearing, including a handful of "f" words; talk of sex and a couple of fade to black scenes.
