FINALIST for the Nancy Pearl Book Award

Nominated for the RONE Award

The Dreamslippers are a family of PIs who solve crimes using their ability to 'slip' into your dreams. But that isn't easy. In Framed and Burning, the Dreamslippers have to defend one of their own. Someone sets fire to Mick Travers’ art studio, killing his assistant, and Mick won't give an alibi. His sister is convinced he's innocent, but her granddaughter and the police aren't so sure. Was it really Mick, or is something even darker behind the fire?

The first book in the series, Cat in the Flock, is an indieBRAG medallion winner that was praised by Kirkus Reviews, Midwest Book Review, Readers Lane, and others. This sequel is set in the high-stakes but quirky Miami art world. Will the dreamslippers discover that a jealous rival was out to destroy Mick's art--and reputation? Or something very sinister could be behind the arson and murder. Find out in this story told from the perspectives of all three dreamslippers, whose handle on their gift is varied and distinct.

HASH(0xaf25ff0c) out of 5 stars Vibrant characters and a stunning story that will keep you reading! 30 November 2015
By Charity Rowell-Stansbury - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

What begins as a much-needed break in Florida for Cat and Granny Grace ends up becoming a mystery that the two private investigators find themselves embroiled in as Granny Grace's brother Mick, becomes the prime suspect in a case of arson and murder.

After the events that took place in Cat in the Flock, Granny Grace decided that what she and Cat needed was a break from the dreary Seattle weather. Grace is hopeful that a trip to Florida to visit Mick and attend his art show will help to improve Cat's state of mind; however, Cat is unimpressed by the art show's attendees and becomes more withdrawn as the night progresses.

Grace's ruminations about Cat are interrupted when the police show up at the art show and ask for Mick. Mick's studio was burned down and Mick's protege, Donnie, was killed in the blaze that consumed all of the artwork that was stored in the studio. The Miami police believe that the fire was purposely set, and they have one suspect in mind; Mick.

Grace is quick to defend her brother, and insists on launching an investigation to uncover who the perpetrator might be. Unfortunately the list of suspects is long and filled with Mick's ex-lovers, former professors, and jealous peers. In order to narrow down the list, Cat and Grace will need to rely on a combination of legwork, deductive thinking, and dreamslipping to discover the motive behind the arson and Donnie's murder in order to find the perpetrator.

In the first book of Lisa Brunette's Dreamslipper Series, Cat in the Flock, we learned a lot about Cat, and I was thrilled to discover that this second book, Framed and Burning, delves a little deeper into Grace's history. As with Cat in the Flock, I found that I was able to suspend disbelief as I read about Grace and Cat's dreamslipping abilities and quickly became reacquainted with the genuine, flawed, vulnerable, and powerful private investigating duo.

Lisa Brunette continues to develop vibrant characters in a stunning story that will keep you reading well past your bedtime! If you are looking for realistic female protagonists with a hint of paranormal ability and enjoy contemporary mysteries, you will not be disappointed.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I am always a little leery with reading books in a series out of order. I will do it once in awhile with books I have been told are true stand alone. This is one of those books and it truly was a stand alone. I do think that reading book 1 would help with getting to know the two main characters, Grace and Cat better. Along with learning more about Lee who Cat was involved with in book 1. Still this book didn't have me lost at all.

I am not huge into artwork, like painting and this is the main theme of the book but I did enjoy the mystery behind it. Mick is Grace's brother and great uncle to Cat (who doesn't know him that well, only meeting a few times). Mick has a fire in his art studio losing all his work and his best friend/assistant Donnie. The story starts to unfold as Grace and Cat look for who did it. Mick has a lot of people that have held grudges or didn't like him for his success in the art world.

Lise Brunette takes us on a wild goose chase to interview people from Mick's past to see who is a suspect. The characters are all well developed along the way, there are a lot of characters in this book. I had a strong feeling with Enrie and wasn't sure I liked him from the beginning but the author has us all over the place wondering could it be him or her, or even someone else. Is it revenge from a past lover or someone that is jealous of how well Mick has done in the art world.

I was totally taken off guard with the end and who actually set the first fire which killed Donnie. I really enjoyed learning about the dreamslipping that Grace, Cat and Mick all can do. It actually can cause a lot of problems if they are not careful with it.

I believe this is going to be a great series and I can't wait to go back to book 1 and learn more about Cat and Grace's dreamslipping.

I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
HASH(0xaf26dfa8) out of 5 stars Enthralling and yet Disturbing...a must read. 9 January 2016
By Rajalakshmi Prithviraj - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I read this book before I read the first one in the series. And I loved every bit of it. It took me three sittings to complete my reading. No, it was definitely not because of the content, but due to my personal commitments. However, I sure will read it once again (even more) as and when I get the opportunity.

The plot is enthralling and disturbing at the same time. The concept of dreamslippers is something I have never heard of, and after reading this book, I definitely want to read up more on them. Also, the fact that Lisa addresses a vital issue to send across a strong message is commendable.

Lisa's writing style not only succeeds in vividly describing each scene, the tone at which narration is executed is strong enough to keep a reader glued to the book. She has integrated the evils of child pornography in her narration. And this is one issue which needs constant focus.

Children are innocent but, thanks to a few perverts, this innocence is exploited. Using their pictures, paedophiles not only shatter a child's dreams, they leave a scar for lifetime. Lisa's story rakes up so many emotions. For me, her story made me feel even more protective towards my kids. I wish I could say more about this, but then, it would be a big time spoiler.

All the characters have a significant role. In fact, the storyline and theme are the protagonists. Hence, each character has a specific role to play in order to bring out the essence of the story.

To sum up, I loved getting framed and burning. The story gets under your skin and will make you ponder long after you are done with reading. Its a must read.

P.S - Thank you Legit Lit Book Tours for giving me this wonderful book to read.

"Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive!" - Sir Walter Scott

Framed and Burning from the Dreamslippers Mystery Series by Lisa Brurnette definitely has a large web filled with deception. Famous artist Mick Travers comes under suspicion when his studio is set on fire, killing his assistant, Donnie. Mick's sister, Grace and niece, Cat, reaches out to help prove his innocence by using their inherited dreamslipping skills. A dreamslipper has the ability to possess other human bodies to see what their dreams entails.

Cat becomes wary of Mick after she enters his dream, but it also opens old wounds she would rather forget. There are many rivals in the art world who want to see Mick's downfall, but what are their reasons for hating him? The case brings Mick and Grace closer as they unite to dig into the past that is somehow connected to his uncertain future. Unfortunately, dreamslipping into another's dream can bring more pain and bewilderment than clues, which are not readily forthcoming.

Framed and Burning is the sequel to Cat in the Flock from the Dreamslippers Mystery Series. I liked the story and was absorbed in its intense, steady-paced mystery. There were so many twists so it was difficult to guess who the actual culprit behind the crime was, but I tried. Mick was such a complex man who made it difficult for anyone to get close to him, but I still liked him.

Lisa Brunette writes boldly and expresses exactly what she is thinking.
Her extremely detailed writing format emitted clear visuals, and the characters appeared comfortable in their roles with unforced emotions and dialogue. It was interesting to see how the dreamslippers worked as each one had a different method of invading and analysing dreams. Framed and Burning is a book I recommend reading.

Despite the numbers of review requests coming in lately, I seem to gravitate toward what I often categorize "cozy mysteries." However, Framed and Burning wasn't consistently "cozy," but it was fast-paced and filled with intrigue, suspense, and two women and one man all equipped to walk into your dreams.

I have not read the first book in the Dreamslippers Series, but Lisa Brunette writes in such a seamless manner and with a flowing sense of keeping her reader informed that this second in the series became a good stand-alone.

With the first page, I was engrossed in the plot, characters, and helping solve the mystery of who set fire to Mick Travers's studio. My first thoughts were that Mick, his sister, and her granddaughter are so conflicted they might not be able to work together. Yet, this did not interfere with the writer's plotting of her story line.

Especially enjoyable for me were the scenes involving the dreamslipping. However, I can see where this could be a troublesome and even dangerous activity. It did keep the suspense at a high point throughout, and I congratulate Lisa Brunette on a clever twist in this series.

Lovers of mystery and suspense will find themselves devoting a cold, wintry day to reading Framed and Burning in one sitting. Toss in a cup of fantasy with the dreamslippers at work and you won't be able to tear yourself away.

I am committed to going back to read Cat in the Flock, the first in the Dreamslippers Series, and I can say I've become a Lisa Brunette fan with this read.
