Clare is such a likeable character she comes across as tough but has a hidden past that is pretty heartbreaking. I thought Ben was great and so supportive.
Just as in Getting Over Gary I thought the friendship between Elise and Clare was lovely. Along with Sarah the friendship between all three women was true to life and felt real. The characters had depth and were well written.
The flashbacks were a great addition to the story. I liked how information was revealed bit by bit. I got a quite emotional at times that's how much I was pulled into the story. The story moved at a brisk pace and I found I was half way through the book before I even realised. Its not as light as Getting Over Gary as there are some serious issues that are brought up but they are handled well.
I enjoyed Getting Over Gary but I think this book just jumps ahead of it. I loved both the story and characters.
Dreaming About Daran is emotional, engaging and is a lovely end to the Whitsborough Bay series!
Five stars from me!
