Sara is getting married and starting med school; her husband Brian is going to finish his last year of undergraduate study. What she really doesn't need is to be seeing other people's dreams, but that is just what happens to Sara every now and again. Dream Doctor follows Sara and a small group of friends through their first year of med school. At the same time Sara is having dreams, lots of dreams of someone murdering their professor. Actually it's not someone, it's lots of someone's and she can't figure out who is just dreaming about killing him and who is actually trying to kill him. J.J. DiBenedetto writes a humorous and quirky mystery as the clumsy med student tries to deal with not only the dreams about the professor, but the dreams of the neighbor next door and a few other close friends.
Dream Doctor is what I would call one of the new generation of cozy mystery stories. It is a light, humorous and energetic take on the mystery idea all wrapped in the theme of the doctor, or med school in this case. Sara is a little hard to like at times. Sometimes she comes off bold and strong and other times she is mousy and unsure of herself. I find I like her much better when she is confident and secure. Sara occasionally sees other people's dreams and sometimes that is fine, but sometimes she needs to do something about what she sees. J.J. DiBenedetto writes a unique concept in this regard because it's not every person she meets and it's not every night - there seems to be no rhyme or reason why Sara sees the dreams she sees. This is a good book for a light-hearted, easy read. If you like the cozy mystery sub-genre, you will like this book.
