About The Book:

In Riverton Falls, a small New England town, globe-trotting bartender Celeste Fortune stands in her kitchen puzzling over last night’s frightening dream—a woman at a window, lilacs blowing in the breeze, someone’s hands tight around her neck. Celeste is sure the dream belongs to someone else. Perhaps she has finally broken through to the collective dreams of Dreamland cult. Hoping her therapist and cult leader will help her untangle it, she heads off into the cold November morning to her final appointment with him—or so she hopes. Her estranged fiancé has delivered an ultimatum: Leave the cult of Dreamers, or end their relationship for good.

Instead of help, however, Celeste discovers her therapist dying in a pool of blood, skull stove in by his own healing crystal. His computer, containing the intimate dreams and secrets of half the town, is gone. Suspicion immediately falls on Celeste, known to be a rebellious member of his cult. To clear her name, Celeste enlists the help of her old friend, Gloria, and the two women set out to find the real culprit. But in the middle of their hunt, the stolen dreams seemingly come to life, terrifying the town—and Celeste and Gloria become the killer’s next target.

Book Blurbs:

Kathryn Guare, award-winning author of the Conor McBride suspense series says, “…Ritz’s comic timing is flawless, and her rollicking plot is expertly balanced against a sobering premise.”

Jennifer McMahon, New York Times bestselling author of The Winter People and Burntown, calls this “…an original and compelling murder mystery that will keep you up late turning pages as you’re sucked into a world of dreams and dreamers, mystics and bartenders, artists and cops. With…a richly atmospheric small-town setting, complete with its own cult, A Dream to Die For is a tangled web of a book you won’t want to tear yourself away from.”

Kathryn Davis, author of Duplex and The Thin Place comments, “What if the small town where you live turns out not to be the sweet place you thought it was? What if the people you thought were your friends aren’t? Worse yet, what if your dreams are not your own? These questions haunt Celeste, the reluctant yet dauntless heroine of Susan Ritz’s spellbinding novel.”
