“A Cold Spring” Episodes 9 and 10

Novel Magic: The Dream Doctor by J.J. DiBenedetto 2 comments

IF you are looking for something to binge . . . The Dream Doctor–Can you call it Magic? Sara, the heroine of the Dream Doctor Mysteries wouldn’t call her “gift” magic, because she’s a doctor – someone who’s logical and believes in science, and of course there’s no such thing as magic.
