"When Abigail Marchand, Savannah's famously reclusive heiress, invites the Dream Club ladies to lunch at her Beaux Reeves mansion, Taylor and Ali hope for an invitation to join the distinguished Magnolia Society. But Abigail has a more pressing concern: a recent dream that seems to foretell her death. Taylor reassures Abigail that there are many ways to interpret a dream, but at the next meeting of the Dream Club, their discussion is cut short by a call from Detective Sam Stiles. She's at Abigail's mansion, where the elderly woman appears to have been pushed to her death down a flight of stairs. Now Taylor, Ali, and the Dream Club need to catch a killer before someone else is laid to rest."--Provided by publisher.… (més)

A Premonition of Murder by Mary Kennedy is the third book in A Dream Club Mystery series. Taylor Black is living in Savannah, Georgia helping her sister, Allison “Ali” Black with her shop Oldies but Goodies. Taylor and Ali have been invited by Abigail Marchand to her home Beaux Reeves. Abigail has been having a disturbing dream, and Abigail believes it means her death is imminent. Taylor and Ali are members of the Dream Club and Abigail was hoping they could assist her. Taylor reassures her that the dream could mean many different things. She promises to discuss it at their very next meeting and get back in touch with her. Unfortunately, Abigail is found dead at the bottom of her stairs before Taylor can get back in touch with her. Abigail was pushed down her stairs. The Dream Club sets out to find Abigail’s killer. It certainly helps when Ali and Taylor are contacted by Abigail’s attorney. Abigail had left a letter requesting that the sisters take a complete inventory of the house. They will finally get a chance to see inside Beaux Reeves (very few people ever get inside the house) and, hopefully, find some clues to help their investigation. Will the Dream Club be able to find the killer before there is another victim?

A Premonition of Murder is the third book in the series, but it can easily be read as a stand-alone. The author did a good job with the mystery. I liked the clues and her misdirection. I was able to pick out the killer early in the book (as soon as I read about the murder), but, thanks to the clever writing, I was starting to doubt myself a little bit (which I liked). I am not sure about the dream interpretations (my parents always taught be that it is hogwash), but I liked the candy shop Oldies but Goodies. How they make any money, though, is beyond me. It seems their intern, Dana (who is supposed to be part-time) does all the work. They are barely breaking even so I do not know how they can afford a part-time employee (we are probably not supposed to think about that). I also wondered about the amount of frozen food they use to serve to customers (instead of fresh every day). Of course, they are too busy sleuthing to make fresh. Another anomaly is the cats that are allowed in the store. You would think they would not be allowed cats in the shop since they serve cooked/prepared food as well as candy (yum). I give A Premonition of Murder 4 out of 5 stars. A Premonition of Murder is well-written and entertaining. I will definitely be reading the next book in A Dream Club Mystery series.

I received a complimentary copy of A Premonition of Murder from NetGalley (courtesy of the publisher) in exchange for an honest evaluation of the novel. ( )

A Premonition Of Murder is the third book in the A Dream Club Mystery series.

Another enjoyable visit to Savannah, Georgia and to the Oldies But Goodies store/cafe owned by sisters Taylor and Ali. And of course their Dream Club, too.

Taylor and Ali have been invited to a luncheon at Abigail Marchand's palatial estate, Beaux Reves. They are sure an invitation to join the exclusive Magnolia Society will be in the offering. They soon learn that Abigail has had a dream in which she dies and wants to them to give her their analysis of her dream and the next day she is found dead in her home.

When Taylor and Ali bring this tale to the attention of the Dream Club members, it is learned that some of the members have had dreams that Abigail has been in and in addition, one even had a dream of Abigail's sister who had reportedly drowned. But the dream suggests otherwise.

Taylor and Ali have many suspects to look at to come up if the murderer

This is another well plotted and told story from Mary Kennedy. She provides the reader with a cast of interesting and believable characters. I particularly like the two spinster sisters, Rose and Minerva, who own a flower shop near Oldies But Goodies. They are two adorable older ladies and very insightful.

A Dream Symbol Guide is also included with the book.
Looking forward to more books in this series. ( )
