The move to the remote town of Quarry Hill, Pennsylvania was supposed to help Griffin McGuire start over and forget the two people who betrayed him. As a paramedic at the local hospital, he would still have to interact with people, but the rest of the time he could hole himself away in the secluded cabin he was renting. It was perfect. For the first time in over a year, he ...more

3.5 Stars.
So this was an interesting read that I enjoyed.
The title here really caught my attention and I thought it really stood out from the rest of the book names in this particular genre: very original and unique I would have picked it up to investigate further just based on the name alone.
This is a romantic suspense mainly told in dual POV: I say mainly as there is some slight input here from the baddie himself which did give some further clarification into what is actually occurring on
3 do we really want to dream of spiders? Stars

Griffin moves out to Quarry Hill to run from his past and what he survived. Got to say I did not see that coming (nice twist there Ms. Keating) the physical wounds might have healed but the emotionally scars are still real.

One night when coming back from the store he nearly runs a woman covered in blood over with his truck. Stopping to ask if she is alright, she runs off knocks her head and then she can’t remember her name and suffers from amnesia.

Griffin moves to a small Pennsylvanian town, to get away from his past. What he didn't expect is to meet a girl covered in blood standing in the middle of the road, who doesn't even know her own name. Griffin trys to help her recover her memories piece by piece. What happened to her? What was she running from? And why did she say no police, before she tried running from him?
This romantic thriller was filled with so many questions that you had to continue reading to find the answers to. Does the

I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. My thoughts and opinions are my own. Any quotes I use are from an unpublished copy and may not reflect the finished product.

I Dream of Spiders was too unbelievable for me. She wakes up with no memories and very serious injuries, and one of her first thoughts is how attractive someone is. "Even through the fuzziness and the mind-numbing pain, I know this man isn’t just handsome, but stunning." A random guy's appearan
3 stars!

Griffin is an ex navy medic who finds himself in Quarry Hill, PA escaping his past and working as a paramedic. No one but his best friend knows his name or what went down a year earlier and he wants to keep it that way. One night on the way home from the store he comes across a woman covered in blood. Griffin tries to help her but she flees and ends up falling and hitting her head. When she wakes with amnesia, she doesn’t know who she is or who she is running from, only that she can’t go

Elle Keating is a new to me author. I’ve heard of her work, but I have never had the chance to indulge until now. I Dream of Spiders kept me entertained and I never found myself bored. I honestly didn’t know what was going to happen, I love when a book is unpredictable.

Griffin McGuire is on the run from his past. He moves to a small secluded town so he can have a fresh start. His Navy buddy has a cabin out in the woods he doesn’t really want to deal with, so Griffin jumps at the chance and move

As seems to be a norm for me lately I am having a little trouble finding the words to appropriately review a book. Did I like this one, yes! Did it take me a little while to get through because it didn't always keep my attention, sadly yes. Did I love the, maybe. Did I love the heroine, yes! Do I want more of this world, I think so.

First let me say that I really loved this cover and title, the title is really what drew me in to begin with, with out even knowing what the book was about

I Dream of Spiders was my first book by Elle Keating, but I'm sure it won't be my last. Keating delivers a wonderfully suspenseful novel within the pages of this book, one that not only draws you in, but captivates even further with every flip of the page.

Griffin's struggling to move on with his life after dealing with some major stuff, He needs to hide himself away for a little while to work through his pain and anger and figure out what he's going to do next, so his friends cabin in the middl

After the last couple of years that he has had Griffin McGuire is ready for some much needed peace and quiet and his friends secluded cabin seems to be the perfect place to land. Coming to Quarry Hill holds a lot of hope for a fresh start, it's a place where no one knows him or the dramatic past that he carries with him. For the first time in a long time he sees the possibility of a life without all the pain, hatred and loss he's harbored for so long... and it feels good.

But just as he is about

I had to sit on this book a while after reading it because I have no clue how to review it. It is a very intense romantic suspense novel. I loved the characters. Both of the main characters had their own issues and I liked seeing them come to terms with them and working on becoming their better selves. Griffin was awesome. I really loved his friendship with Trent and then how well he took care of the heroine. I’m not going to put a name for her because it was a while before she really got one in ...more

I Dream Of Spiders, interesting read.
The story started ok, but as the story goes I was curious on what happened to the heroine - how she ended up with no memories and all. I was having some speculations on the spiders and I was right. Anyway, Griffin I am not really a fan of him. He's hot one minute and then cold the next. I sometimes want to smack the living shit out of him on some parts. Lol. Tho I love his friend Trent more. The heroine, she's ok. Love her spirit. The story, it was o
I felt some parts were a bit rushed and occasionally things happened without any lead in which made some parts a bit confusing.
Otherwise a great story.
Griffin left the service to be with his wife and start a family. He never expected to be betrayed by the two people in his life he trusted more than anything.

Now moving to a remote town with his friend from the service he'll do anything to start over and not form any attachments. That is until he almost runs over a girl covered in blood.

The girl, who Griffin names Clare, doesn't remember who she is or where she came from. She has no memory beyond waking up in the hospital with Griffin. When she

This is the first book I’ve read by this author, an I really enjoyed the story. I liked the flow of the story and how well the characters went together. Griffin and Clare’s story will keep you on the edge of your seat.

What would you do if you almost hit a woman with your truck? Well you get out and find way more then you thought you would. Griffin moved to a new town to start over let the past stay in the past. He starts a new job soon and is looking forward to moving on with his life. Then a m
