"You'll keep reading into the night ..."
Savannah Alexander was helpless to the recurring dream
she had monthly starting at nine-years-old. It was always
the same, filled with the evil presence calling her Selena.
It spread her with panic, fear, and a helplessness she had
never known before. When she was older and was visiting her
grandmother with her parents she had it again. This time,
however, it came after a day of humiliation from the town
bully. She woke crying out and fleeing her room and house.
As she did she hurt her foot and there was her cousins'
friend Tommy to help her.
Years later when she returned to take much needed
vacation she stayed at the same house. It was either take a
vacation or most likely end up having a breakdown from the
stress of the newly returned dream and with more force,
power, and evil than before. A series of coincidences make
for an odd stay starting with the return of Tommy who is
all grown up and not the boy she remembers.
Now a doctor, Dr. Tom Patterson came to the town of East
Prairie on business and never intended to find Savannah
staying there. Along with seeing old friends and family
again, Savannah finds the old bully still lives in town. If
you take that, add friends and family, add Tom and then
herself, you get a very strange situation.
As a single parent, Tom has to juggle the evil known as
work and his daughter with precious care. When he comes to
town to meet a client and finds out the client is the bully
he is disgusted but has no choice. Then after he promises
to stay and help Savannah with her lifelong haunting dream
she ends up back in the past in which she has no choice but
fight for her very life or die.
PAST INDISCRETIONS was a wonderful ride in the past and
present. It is a time travel filled with mystery and a good
dose of romance all mixed in. The villain isn't your
average evil but he is what he is; evil. Paranormal fans
should be delighted with this one as the reader was. It was
a delight in-a-half. The past scenes were full and ripe
with imagination as is the entire book itself. You don't
have to worry about it being a good that will make you
snore because you'll keep reading into the night just to
see the end as fast as possible to see what happens.
