"Another fascinating Dreamscapes story"
Allie Walker was a waitress in a diner and had generally
poor taste in men. She had always dreamed of a life of
money, flashy clothes, and grand parties. Then one night,
her live-in boyfriend, Whit Richards, stabbed her to death.
The last thing she remembers is a voice asking her if she
wanted another chance at life. When Allie comes to, she
finds herself in the body of wealthy socialite, Brianna
Sinclair, holding the gun that just killed Brianna's fiancé!
Pete Hackett is a private investigator who was close
friends with Allie before her death. He doesn't believe for
a second Whit's story that a burglar killed Allie, though
there is no evidence to support Pete's suspicions. He knows
Whit killed her and vows to prove it at any cost. When
Brianna strolls into his office to find her late fiancé's
real murderer, he is stunned to find he is attracted to
her, a suspected killer. He agrees to take the case,
counting on the money to finance his investigation to
Allie had always had a bit of a crush on Pete while she was
herself, and now she has a second chance at him. She tells
him her wild tale, and in spite of how bizarre it sounds,
He finds that he believes her. They decide to work together
to prove Brianna's innocence and find the real killer, as
well as a way to prove Whit's guilt. But who does Pete
really love -- Brianna or Allie? And when justice is
served, which woman will stay and which one will not
This was quite the interesting story. Ms. Wisdom sets quite
a job for herself, to carry two separate stories in the
book, and intertwine them into one tale of love conquering
all. Allie is quite the charmer and Pete doesn't stand a
chance against her. His dedication to her, even after he
believes her dead, shows what a wonderful guy he is. The
reaction of Brianna's family to her transformation when
Allie takes over is pure shock as none of them ever
expected such a change from the pushover Brianna had been.
The conclusions to both story lines are more than
satisfactory and the reader will feel that both Allie and
Brianna are suitably avenged. However, the true killer of
Brianna's fiancé is more then obvious, as is the motive
behind it. This was an unusual story line and one isn't
really even sure how to classify it. Reincarnation, ghost?
Even so, it is fascinating and will keep the pages turning
for the reader, all the way to the very end.

Diner waitress Allie Walker dreamed of grandeur, but even
she never fathomed being switched into the body of Brianne
Sinclair, the world's most beautiful heiress. Dream come
true? Not for long. For when Allie came to as Brianne,
there was a dead fiancé at her feet — and she was holding
the smoking gun!
Only struggling private investigator Pete Hackette believed
her innocence. As Allie, she'd had a fierce crush on him,
and now, as Brianne, she'd finally made Pete fall in love
with her. But which woman was he really in love with? And
which woman would survive when the real murderer was
