Format: Paperback
When Samantha returns to her small town for a funeral, she learns that the subject of her nightmares, a cop who attempted to rape her, has escalated, and not only to police chief. An old friend and journalist for the local paper tells her about a string of unsolved rape/murder cases that started soon after she left 20 years ago. Reading the details, she knows in her gut that it can only be one man. As small towns go, it's not long before her former attacker becomes aware of her curiosity and Samantha struggles between saving her own life and her determination to stop him.

Author, Victoria Burlew weaves a compelling suspense that keeps the reader on edge until the very end. I couldn't help wondering what this guy was capable of while I admired the main character's courage and feared for her life. The characters and story really come to life, enough to overlook the occasional flaw in craft.

This should be a popular title among crime suspense lovers, especially fans of indies. I hope to see more from this author.

I just finished reading a first book by Victoria J. Burlew, [ASIN:1484823702 What Nightmares Are Made Of]], and wanted to encourage all avid fiction/mystery readers (and all readers, no matter their favorite genre) to hurry to Amazon and purchase this book.

The story grabs the reader immediately and takes them on a thrilling, roller coaster ride through the many lives affected by the actions of one madman. The characters are well-developed and given a depth of life that allows the reader to understand and feel what the characters feel as their lives are forever altered by the actions of one man and his often unwilling companion.

I found myself constantly on the edge, wondering if the peril that was developing would envelop and destroy the victim(s), or if eventually, good would triumph over evil.

I bought the kindle version of "What Nightmares are made of" this morning. I read the first page and could not put it down! I found the book engaging from the first word to the last. The book is well written and holds you in suspense from one chapter to the next. I highly recommend this book.What Nightmares Are Made OfWhat Nightmares Are Made Of

A great read from the fantastic Victoria. Love the writing, the characters, and surrounding areas that sound so familiar to me due to living in Michigan for a few years.
While I received a copy of the novel, "What Nightmares Are Made Of" from the publisher, I was under no obligation to write a positive review. I'm happy to say that I was drawn into the novel, as if I was actually there with Samantha. Thrilling, exciting, romantic, and more. Highly recommend to all readers. Looking forward to Victoria's next novel.
