About this deal

Men and women be falling for her and I'm over like "y'all all need to sort out your priorities cause i I very easily visualized walking the grounds of Duquette University, and even found myself battling a deep sense of nostalgia for the beginning of my college days at a similar institution – very well done Winstead!

By the time I started writing In My Dreams I Hold a Knife, it was almost like they were friends whose stories I’d absorbed. Jessica’s fatal flaw is that she saw how bad this belief system treated people like her father and she still subscribed wholeheartedly; in fact, she contorts herself in service of it almost until the end. Everyone is going to see the girl she wants them to see—confident, beautiful, indifferent—not the girl she was when she left campus, back when Heather’s murder fractured everything, including the tight bond linking the six friends she’d been closest to since freshman year. I cannot wait to discuss this one with more readers, and I believe it will be in my Top Ten Reads of 2021 wrap-up as well.Over my years as a crime reader, I’ve found myself drawn over and over again to characters who are often described as “unlikeable”—characters who embody less-than-desirable traits that we’d all probably rather not admit we can sometimes relate to. Twisty and compulsively readable, In My Dreams I Hold A Knife will have you turning pages late into the night, not just to figure out who murdered beloved Heather Shelby, but to see whether friendships forged under fire can ever be resurrected again. Fans of books such as The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl will find this book captivating, as will anyone who enjoys being led down a winding, frightening path. When a tragedy strikes her family and Jess’ father passes away, Jess finds herself more driven than ever to live out her father’s dreams and achieve the goals he was never able to for herself. Ten years ago, Jessica Miller and her friends—a clique known as the “East House Seven”—suffered a horrific tragedy when one of their own was brutally murdered in her dorm room, stabbed to death while she was sleeping.

A deep-seated fear of being overlooked and never fulfilling her potential drives Jess forward, motivating her ruthless ambition and single-minded focus. A college reunion turns dark and deadly in this chilling and propulsive suspense novel about six friends, one unsolved murder, and the dark secrets they’ve been hiding from each other–and themselves–for a decade.How do you navigate the dangers of comparing yourself to others, especially people in your graduating class or distant social media friends? For a second I wasn’t sure how I felt about it, but then I thought how it made sense with the breadcrumbs that were scattered throughout. At one point or another I suspected pretty much everyone, so the ultimate revelation definitely came as a surprise to me.
