Can you uncover evil in another’s dreams? You can if you were born with the birthmark of a dream walker. Lily Scott, a modern Salem witch, was born with this mark like the line of maternal ancestors that came before her. But Lily’s first adolescent attempt at dream-walking ended in disaster.

Now, decades later, her world explodes. Her husband is dead. Her daughter faces prison for the murder of a local witch. Her estranged sister, a Roman Catholic nun, struggles to protect the band of aging homeless women in her care. Lily must decide: tap into her power to search for a killer or let her fear of the Dream Stalker hold her back?

Ok a while to get into, but good in the end

Dream Stalker by Nancy Gardner is the story of a modern day witch in Salem, Lily Scott, who was managing a number of personal issues including the death of her husband and the estrangement of her sister and daughter. She has nearly died as a teen dream walking and had been determined that she would never do it again. But she was faced with her daughter in jail charged with murder and she uses her ancestral gift as a dream walker to delve the mystery. This audiobook took me a while to invest. The narrator was a good choice for the story, She was able to do the New England and Scottish accents exceptionally well, but it took me a number of chapters to acclimate to the accent and the voice and to truly connect with the story. Once the actual mystery became clear, the story picked up and and I enthusiastically listened to the rest of the book. At that point, the narrator’s performance seemed to hit a groove that enhanced the story. It was a good mystery with a different type of crime solving. I could see a series being born from this book. I would recommend this book for mystery overs who love a paranormal twist. I am rating this book 3.5 stars due to my delayed connection to both the narration and the story. I am voluntarily submitting this honest review after listening to an advanced complementary copy of this audiobook thanks to Netgalley and BooksGoSocial Audio.
