About the book: Jack Robesaux is dead. Is it suicide or murder? Marin Seurat has come home to Saint Toulere, Louisiana and by using her special gift -- the ability to communicate with spirits through her dreams -- she will help solve mysteries from both the past and present. "Dying to Dream" is an intriguing mix of murder, paranormal, voodoo, and romance set in a charming southern town.
