It isn't an everyday occurrence. You know what I mean. When you pick up a book, not expecting anything out of the ordinary and then you find out that you couldn't have been more wrong. Day Dreamer is definitely one of those books. At the beginning it seemed, to me, like Cord was a really rude, arrogant man, but as the story wears on you see that Cord isn't that way at all. He just hides his pain and suffering beneath the mask of hostility. Trying to shield his new wife from what remains of his bruised and battered heart. My heart ached when I read about how much Cord has suffered in his short life time. I couldn't help, but feel like his heart would never heal, not even with Celine by his side. Both have suffered so much pain in their lives, but they find in each other, a reason to live again, laugh again, and love for the first time.
Personally I don't feel like running from the law is the smart choice, but in Celine's case I couldn't help but cheer her on. Even if she would've waited for the police it wouldn't have mattered. They wouldn't have believed her side of the story. So, for her running was the only choice. But as you find out, you can't run from your past or hide from the future. The past eventually catches up with you. You'll hold your breath during the last sixty pages, but the ending will bring a smile to your face.
