Tabitha March is a psychic dream interpreter. When she makes physical contact with a person while they recount their dream, a detailed vision of their dream will appear to her. She helps this person determine what it is that the dream represents to them. One of her clients has been having dreams that he murdered someone. Then one of his victims actually turns up dead for real. Tabitha goes to the police and meets inspector Nate Darling. Nate, of course, is a skeptic. However, with irrefutable proof, he can't help but be suspicious of Tabitha herself.

The overall feel for Arousing Suspicions is humorous and light-hearted. Nate and Tabitha both have many witty quips and sarcastic comments that cracked me up. Both characters have broken pasts that they want to try and overcome. They are easily likeable and are a good match for each other.

The suspense plot is well detailed without being grotesque. I really appreciated that. The mystery is resolved at the very end and I never saw it coming who the villain was surrounding the murders. I will admit though, that when I watched Scooby Do as a child, I was never able to figure out who the bad guy was either. Keep that in mind. If you are really good at figuring out mysteries, then maybe this one won't stump you like it did me.
This book was a quick, enjoyable read. My only complaint is that I would have liked for the story to have been longer.

Tabitha March is a psychic who can see other people's dreams. She contacts Detective Nate Darling after she sees a murderous dream which is then reenacted in real life. Nate is cynical and disbelieving of her psychic power, but he is nonetheless attracted to Tabitha. When more bodies turn up they must work together to solve the crimes. Quick read, enjoyable.

Could not put this book down. A psychic dream interpreter and a 'Darling' detective most work together to solve a series of murders seen in dream. Sexy characters and fast read - first in series of 3. Loved this book - can't wait to read the next one. Carol

Hard book to put down once you start reading. This is the first book I have read by this author and it will not be the last. Her writing style is excellent and the story line of this book keeps you glued to the book.
