About the Book

“Go into the vault and get the big bills,” John commanded.

Lisa hesitated. Her eyes moved anxiously to the open vault door; its heavy hinges cast shadows that blended into the darkness of the interior. She said in a soft voice, “I don’t like the vault. It gives me nightmares.”

John laughed cruelly. “Do you really expect me to believe you’re a bank teller who’s scared of bank vaults?”

Lisa nodded her head.

John waved his gun at her. “This is a robbery, and this gun is not a dream.”

Lisa Reilly, teller at First National Consumer Bank in Rhode Island, ballroom dancer, and hopeful romantic, is a dreamer. She experiences lucid dreams now and again, and she hopes to harness them, making the plots of her dreams bend to her will. She also has terrible nightmares of being stuck inside the vault at the bank and sometimes dreams of having a boyfriend too.

Lisa never really thought she’d be a victim in an actual armed robbery, but when she suddenly finds herself moving toward the vault, trying to survive a real-life bank robbery, her worst nightmares are realized.

Will Lisa ever be able to have a lucid dream where she is in control? Will she be able to overcome her bank vault nightmares? Will she survive the real-life robbery? Find out as you travel through Lisa’s dreams and reality, crossing the bridge between the two worlds in Dr. Karen Petit’s exciting and romantic novel, Banking on Dreams.
