Dream Chasers is the sixth novel in the Inspector Green series by Barbara Fradkin. Lea is a bright young woman, daughter of a refugee from Bosnia who is now making a life in Ottawa; she has a crush on Riley, a star hockey player and likely first-round pick for the National Hockey League. But Lea isn't the only one with an interest in Riley: there's a number of other girls who would like to take him away from her; there's the coach/agent who's hoping to ride Riley's coattails into the big leagues ...more

First mystery I've read in a while; loved the Ottawa setting and the straight-forward nature of the writing...perfect for a weary traveller stuck on plane after plane! My favourite still remains Once Upon a Time, but that may be from the personal insight gained from having Ms. Fradkin speak to our book club.

Pretty Good book in this series and hard to put down before finishing. Even the ending wasn't too much of a disappointment! There have been better in the series but this one is an OK book. Sharon is still a great character and the series needs more of Hannah and Modo!

Enjoyed the Canadian premise of the book. The characters were real and you felt Green's challenges both at home and on the job. Nice to be introduced to a new (to me) Canadian author.

I love reading books set in familiar settings. This one took place in Ottawa. A good mystery that deals with up to date social problems.
