Celeste Fortune is a Bartender in this small town, and is in therapy with Larry, to improve her life by discussing her dreams. Many of the other neighbors also go to Larry to discuss their dreams as well. Larry seems to have a nice size clientele. Usually, nothing goes wrong in this small town, but Celeste finds Larry dead.

There suddenly is a danger and another dead body. There seem to be some questionable characters. There are a mystical feel and magical essence in this story. At times it is difficult to tell reality from fantasy. I would recommend this novel for those readers who enjoy an unusual mystery.
