Dream A Little Death
by Susan Kandel
on Tour May 23 - June 23, 2017
From critically acclaimed author Susan Kandel comes a charming new mystery featuring Dreama Black and a cast of zany LA-based characters.The first time I set eyes on Miles McCoy, I worried he might try to eat me. He was the size and girth of a North American grizzly, with long, silver-tipped hair, a long silver-tipped beard, and small dark eyes that bore into me like I was a particularly fine specimen of Chinook salmon. It couldn't have helped that I'd used a honey scrub the morning we met. I should've known better. Not just about the scrub, but about a lot of things.
Like braving the freeway during rush hour.
Like thinking you can't get a ticket for parking at a broken meter.
Like racing up to his penthouse in gladiator sandals, and expecting not to twist an ankle.
Like watching his fiancée shoot herself, and assuming it was suicide, instead of murder.
Meet Dreama Black. A 28 year-old, third-generation groupie trying to figure out who she is after being publicly dumped by the rock god whose mega-hit, "Dreama, Little Dreama" made the name and the girl world-famous. Now Dreama supports herself by running custom-designed, themed tours of her hometown of L.A. When she is hired by a Raymond Chandler-obsessed rap producer to create a "L.A. noir" tour as his present to his soon-to-be bride, Dreama gets pulled into the middle of a possible murder, corrupt cops, and an unforgettable pair of femme fatales.

This is my first introduction to this author. I am happy to report that first impressions were a success. I had such an enjoyable time reading this book and getting to know Dreama. I feel like I barely scratched the surface of just who Dream is and what makes her tick. Thus I can't wait to get to know her better. For example, did you know that Dreama has the honor to brag that she was the inspiration for a hit song "Dreama, Little Dreama".
Dreama is not the only one that I enjoyed meeting. Her friends were great too. They brought the energy and personalities. Great friends is what it is all about. The mystery in this book was a good one. Dreama kind of played the role of Nancy Drew. She was not as great ash she may have thought she was; just ask her uncle. I really had no idea how the story would play out. So, when it was revealed in the end I was happy with the outcome. I want more Dreama. Dream a Little Death will have you lost in time with this enjoyable read!
