      Abby Whitman's nightmare has returned. Her sleepwalking has receded after puberty, but she's at it again. And this time apparently killing innocent people, while before, when she was a child, she only set the house on fire and severely burned her sisterAnd she's not just sleepwalking anymore, now she's got her sleepdriving license as well.Since she doesn't remember the accident/murder/whatever, she enlists the help of local psychiatrist, Jason Coble, a man with enough baggage as it is, but still [...]

      Susan Crandall has written another solid romantic suspense. I am not one for ultra dark novels, and I can always count on Ms. Crandall to keep me engaged in the book and suspense, but not to take it too far. Abby has an unusual problem, a twist on amnesia, with sleepwalking. Jason is not your usual hero, in that he is a psychiatrist. There is plenty of family dynamics and, for once, a person of the cloth was not made out to be a stereotypical character. The big scene was well worth the wait, ver [...]

      I won this book from Giveaways, it was the first book I've ever won so I was excited to win it and read it.Winning this book gave me the opportunity to read something that I would never have picked off the shelf. I do not tend to read romances and the cheesy romance cover would be enough to stop me from buying it.There was nothing specifically wrong with the novel it just was not my type of book and I found myself rolling my eyes most of the time.

But now it is back, and she believes the consequences to be murder. But are they?Susan Crandall has written a tale that kept me in suspense and cheering for Abby and Jason, her romantic interest, from beginning to end. I so wanted things to work out for both of them, and for both to overcome their problems and bui [...]

      This book was received as a 'Book-Give-Away'! Thank you.This was my first Crandall novel and I wasn’t disappointed. Abby Whitman was a sleepwalker as a child and during one of her episodes she accidentally set the family home on fire leaving her younger sister Courtney scarred for life. Scars to her face, neck, and arms which were glaringly apparent for everyone to see. The guilt Abby has carried her entire life is extremely overwhelming which causes her to feel she doesn’t ‘deserve’ to [...]

      In Sleep No More, Susan Crandall has crafted another suspenseful, intriguing romantic suspense epic. Imagine that you are a psychiatrist in a small South Carolina town, just escaped from a marriage to an alcoholic wife with a range of problems beyond your ability to control or cope with. Into your life comes an alluring woman who has innocently stepped into a nest of figurative vipers. The night was always Abby Whitman's enemy. As a young girl she walked in her sleep, and one night, started a fi [...]

      This was another ARC win from and i liked it. I wasn't crazy about it but it was nice fluff. I didn't really connect with the characters and Abby just drove me nuts. I loved Jason. e reminded me of my husband who never gives up and always worries about everyone that he loves before he even worries about himself but I kept thinking Abby was just plain selfish. She kept pushing him away and I don't believe it for a second. As for the rest of the story I kept thinking I knew what was going to happ [...]

      I read an advance reading copy of this book.First of all, I really didn't have any major expectations for this book. I didn't choose it because it seemed fascinating. I chose it because it was there.While I didn't have any troubles actually reading it, I had a hard time feeling pulled into it until I'd already read over one hundred pages. It had the potential to be interesting before that, but it just wasn't.However, once I trudged through those first hundred pages, it became significantly more [...]

      When I fist started this book i was having trouble focusing on the first chapteruld've been the setup, could have been me (I was also reading another book i couldn't focus on - but to be fair it is translated from another language).Anyway, once I got passed the first chapter I LOVED THIS Bookok me months to get into it, took me two days to finish (once I tried again) and I had a hard time putting it down. I am actually pretty relieved too. I happened on this author based on a random results of a [...]

      Susan Crandall's Sleep For Me is part thriller and part romance. Abby has spent most of her life regretting and trying to make up for the effects of one painful night. Abby comes across as a sympathetic character because she doesn't fixate on the past, doesn't complain, but takes real steps to fight her problem and to keep it from harming other people.When it appears that her sleep walking has returned and Abby finds herself questioning her sanity, Dr. Jason Coble steps in just in time. The roma [...]

      The fear of hurting others while she sleepwalked has haunted Abby her entire life. She has kept others at a distance because she never wanted to inflict the pain she once caused her sister due to her nighttime habits when they were children. Now Abby is all grown up and she fears her sleepwalking habits have inflicted not just pain, but now death. Susan Crandall has created a suspenseful read with just the right amount of romance to keep things a little on the spicy side. Greenwood Public Librar [...]

      This story was your typical hard headed, stubborn women (in the guise of being described as independent and strong) who lacks common sense and has to have logic dealt to her by the leading man. "Yes, it seems someone is out to get me, but I'll be safe here in the back of my storeroom, which happens to be outside of town and completely remote, and sleep by myself. I'll be okay and no I will not go to your place or sleep at my dad's house because I am attracted to you even though that may be the s [...]

      In Sleep No More, Susan Crandall gives me a shocking twisted romantic suspense that'll send you shivers down your spine. At a young age, Abby was blamed for the fire that scared her baby sister's life when she sleepwalked. Years later, her sleepwalking takes a twisted turn of another kind, when she gets involved in a car accident. From that moment one, she didn't remember everything and becomes an intended target from an unknown enemy. That's when Jason Coble enters her life as a friend, psychol [...]

      Susan Crandall has moved into the genre of romantic suspense and is a master at weaving scenes full of tension with danger lurking just beyond the shadows. Her writing lets the reader experience the drama faced by the characters and become aware of the sights, sounds, and feelings surrounding them in a seamless style.Then, when you least expect it, Crandall jolts the reader with an abrupt new situation, requiring the reader to work through what's happening along with the character in the scene.

      As part of my goal to read as many of the authors at the DBF this year, I picked up Susan Crandall's "Sleep No More". A fast paced mystery that kept you turning the pages and surprised you with the ending that you thought you knew was coming. It has a touch of romance, but not at the Nora Robert's level. The mystery is well written, with twist and turns and keeps flowing right through to the end. This book is a great read for those who love a well written mystery, a keep you guess ending, and th [...]

    20. Kristina on said:

      Suspenseful is definitely a good word to describe this one! It had me on the edge of my seat for at least half of the book. I felt so sorry for the main character Abby as everything unfolds, that I wanted to help her out myself. Susan Crandall did a wonderful job spinning this intriguing, mysterious, and romantic story. (although I would say it was light on the romance) There were so many twists and turns, that it really kept you guessing. This was a highly enjoyable book for fans of romantic su [...]

When a young man is killed in a car accident, Abby can't help but wonder if she is to blame. She begins seeing a psychiatrist to try and make sense of all of her repressed issues. The results are electrifying!This is the first book of Susan's I have read and now I need to add her to my favorite authors list! If you like the synopsis, [...]

      Charlotte has a special gift, as an oracle, that can let her not just see the future, but change it. This has led to tragedy in the past, but unable to communicate well with her aunt, who is also her mentor, (that part felt weak to me), she decides to take on the murders happening to her friends by herself. Rather violent. The whole concept of Smith and his role was too outside my willing suspension of disbelief. This was more of a 3- or 2+ for me.

    23. Emily on said:

      This was a free book from .t good one in a while I must say. It was entertaining though at times I got annoyed with the characters feeling as though they "don't deserve" one another for some reason or another. The girl who sleep walked was most annoying by thinking she was so dangerous just because she may or may not have started a fire in her sleep. doesn't mean she can't have a familybut overall i did enjoy the book.

    24. Paulla on said:

      I loved this book. As a general rule, I pick up books at yard sales, flea markets, Goodwill, and Salvation Army stores. I found this one at one such place and read reviews that did not care for this slow beginning. I felt the whole book was evenly paced and the story ran along at just the right rate. Highly recommended!

    25. Kathy Scott Beezley on said:

      This book was dreadfully boring. The characters were unrelatable, the plot was dull, and the dialogue was uninspired. A very amateurish feel to the writing. To be fair, I believe it is an early work of this author, and, after having read her amazing work, "Whistling Past the Graveyard", I was bound to be disappointed.

    26. Phyllis on said:

      I was lucky enough to win this book in a Giveaway. Sleep No More is a romantic suspense full of action and twists; it has good primary and secondary characters. Abby's sleepwalking and actions from it have left her with feelings of guilt and fear. Psychiatrist Dr. Jason Coble helps her delve into her memories and fear to resolve these issues.

    27. Ericka Scott on said:

      This is the first book by Susan Crandall that I've read.My main issue with the book is a that the hit man acted out of character by not just killing her while he had her in the car at the beginning of the book and then spent the rest of the book in rather amateur attempts to take her life. If killing people hadn't been his "job", I would have been more forgiving of his efforts and mistakes.

    28. Wendi on said:

      This was my first Susan Crandall book but certainly won't be my last. I was a little hesitant when I saw the front cover of the book, which made it look like a harlequin romance novel, but was quickly appeased. The story was engrossing, suspenseful and fast-paced.

    29. Reaganstar on said:

      This book was amazing, full of suspense twists and turns and keeping you turning pages through the book as the story unfolds. I love the blossoming romance between Abby and Jason and all the emotions that take over with this book.

    30. K on said:

      I wouldn't have picked this on my own, but received as "give away". I'm not usually one to read this genre (romantic suspense), but it wasn't so bad. Had action enough to keep my interest to the end.
