And the more you get to know these characters, the more you will begin to suspect that every single one of them might be harboring their own dark secrets about the horrific murder of their friend a decade ago. As I got closer to the climax, I caught myself biting my nails, tapping my foot feverishly in anticipation. A deep-seated fear of being overlooked and never fulfilling her potential drives Jess forward, motivating her ruthless ambition and single-minded focus. Thanks to Netgalley and HarperCollins Canada for the digital arc in exchange for my honest opinions. Now that I've had some time to reflect on it, I can honestly, and confidently say this novel will very likely be one of my top reads for 2021, and with the number of thrillers I read, that’s saying quite a bit!

Six college friends reunite at homecoming weekend a decade after graduating — This crew is brimming with dark deceit and secrets, and are forced to confront the details of a murder they’ve all tried to leave behind. One of the unique selling points of Ashley Winstead’s debut novel is its ensemble cast, and the riveting glimpse Winstead offers her readers into the inner workings of its central friend group, a clique known as the “East House Seven. Alternating between flashback chapters that take place during Jess’ time in college in the lead-up to Heather’s murder, and present-day chapters that follow the increasingly sinister events of reunion weekend, IN MY DREAMS I HOLD A KNIFE weaves an immersive tale of friendship, betrayal, love, and deadly obsession.The novel has some surprising revelations, and one stunning final admission that I didn’t see coming. And I easily connected with her because even though you hate your, you wish to grab her shoulders to shake some sense into her: you cannot help yourself for being sorry for her as well.

And sooner or later the all secrets they have been hiding are about to reveal to change entire dynamics of their relationship. What she does not anticipate, is that her former friends have lived with their own insecurities and dark secrets. I’ve been so excited about this book for weeks now—next to For Your Own Good by Samantha Downing (another absolute must-read) it might have been my most anticipated thriller of the year.

The combination of riveting characters, roller coaster plot twists and vivid campus setting made for quite the impressive read! i read thrillers for real life gasping reveals and this along with most of the thrillers i read just didn’t make the cut. The first section of this book is focused on scene-setting, with an emphasis on establishing character backstories and developing a strong sense of place. Huge thanks to Vanessa and her publisher for giving us this early sneak peek—I can’t wait to read BLOOD SISTERS this fall! Now she is an Upper East Side girl named partner at one of the most sought after positions at a consulting company in NYC.
