Fear Dreams (Kerry Blasco #1) by J. A. Schneider

Fear Dreams (Detective Kerri Blasco #1)

Fear Dreams

Available from Amazon UK US AU CA

A terrifying psychological thriller with a killer twist

Liddy Barron, an artist, was injured in a hit-and-run accident that left her with recurring nightmares, partial amnesia, and an increasing obsession in the disappearance of a coed named Sasha Perry. Was Sasha murdered? Insecure and nervous, Liddy’s turmoil grows as she begins seeing ghostly images. Her husband Paul tries to help but suspects it’s just her imagination…while intuitive Detective Kerri Blasco, also obsessed with young Sasha’s disappearance, senses that Liddy may have a key to solving the case, and tries to unravel the shocking truth of what really haunts her.


This is book 1 in the Kerry Blasco series and the first book I read was book 4: Shoeless Child so I can confirm it works well as stand alone.

Liddy was in a road accident where she was knocked down leaving her with concussion and a badly fractured leg. She is recovering slowly but lost her memory so she has no recollection of the accident or the events preceding it. Her husband Paul is very supportive as is her friend Beth.

Liddy suffers from terrible nightmares and moving to a new apartment doesn’t help. She keeps seeing Sasha a missing coed and she knows things about Sasha that were not made public. Kerry Blasco has been investigating Sasha’s disappearance for a while but with no leads the funding has been pulled and she is left doing what she can in her own time. When Liddy turns up Kerry is thrilled that at last they have something new but how does Liddy know these things?

As Liddy and her friends fear for her sanity the dreams and visions continue she keeps seeing Sasha in water pleading for help. Is she a ghost or has Liddy gone mad?

This is a twisty turny book as we follow Liddy and Kerry as they try to make sense of the dreams.

I love the characters they are realistic personalities that all bring something to the story and I like how the relationship between Kerry and Liddy develops.

There are several red herrings and curve balls as the fast paced story develops and the reader is taken on an adrenaline pumping ride to the very climatic ending where we receive an even bigger shock as the truth is revealed.

A brilliant read and well worth the 5 stars.
