In My Dreams I Hold a Knife” by Ashley Winstead

Review by Yvonne Selander, collection development librarian

Ten years after graduation, a group of friends reunites at their college reunion. Jessica has it all planned; she’s going to wow everyone with her accomplishments, her new look, the new her. But her plans are derailed. One friend isn’t at the reunion because Heather was murdered before she graduated. And not everyone can go on with their life and leave her murder unsolved. Did one of Heather’s closest friends kill her?

This cinematic thriller bouncing between now and then follows these young adults as they reinvent themselves and grow into adults – until tragedy derails them all. You’ll keep wondering who did it and why as secrets are revealed. Will you guess the killer? I sure didn’t!
