'Dream Me Home' Wins Silver Award from the 'BookFest Book Awards'

A Story of Betrayal, Infidelity and Love a Chilling Mystery by Psychotherapist Laurie Elizabeth Murphy. Listen to her Exclusive Interview with Radio Talk Show Host 'Dr. Pat'.
Stuart, FL, USA - April 15, 2024 - The BookFest Book Awards have named Dream Me Home the second-place winner in the Thriller/Suspense category.


The BookFest Book Awards honors authors who create outstanding works of fiction and nonfiction. Books are judged in categories based on genre, theme, and aesthetics. Hundreds of entries were vetted by an initial team, then the final places were determined by an elite team of experts in the literary and entertainment world.


Written by Registered Nurse and psychotherapist Laurie Elizabeth Murphy who draws from her own experience working in the field to create a uniquely intellectual and entertaining mystery.

It follows Peggy Prescott, a woman who, on the outside, seems to live the perfect life. However, when Peggy is found dead, suspicions turn to those closest to her as her secrets are revealed. After a home robbery, Peggy is left a shell of her former self. As her marriage falls apart and her paranoia of those around her increases, she finds herself escaping to the world of her dreams, and it may be closer to reality than she thinks. This is a tale of love and tragedy, with twists and turns at every page.

Murphy has composed a complex, highly original mystery related through the eyes and mind of one Peggy Prescott who delivers clues to her own murder, beginning from her entrance into this novel in a hearse!
- Grady Harp, Amazon Top 100 Hall of Fame Reviewer, 5-Stars

" Dream Me Home is about characters that are real, and face real dilemmas, they make irrational decisions even with the best intentions, and cannot always control the outcomes of the most well-planned lives," Laurie says. Peggy herself, her husband, her therapist, and every other character is unforgettable and realistic. Readers will love them, hate them, and will never know who they can trust, the perfect concoction for a great mystery!

Now and then along comes a mystery novel that dazzles, not only as a captivating probe following the clues of a crime, but also as a sensitive examination of marriage and love. Dream Me Home is that unique success!
- Flying Books Reviews

Laurie's passion and expertise shine throughout Dream Me Home . Her insights on psychology, relationships, and individuals make this a truly unique read. Anyone who likes a good murder mystery will love this book!

Keep an eye on Laurie Elizabeth Murphy, she has crafted a romantic thriller like no other... no doubt incorporating her many years as a psychotherapist into this spellbinding novel.
