Book Description

Baxley solves crimes in her dreams

While planting a cherry tree, landscaper and pet sitter Baxley Powell digs up a skull. As she waits for the cops, she dreamwalks to identify the victim. Once her findings prove helpful, the sheriff agrees to pay her for consulting, if she closes cases.

 A widow and single mom, Baxley needs this consulting gig. Her in-laws want custody of her daughter, so she has to be self-sufficient.

 Complications arise when a fresh body is found on Baxley’s jobsite, planting her in the suspect pool. Concurrently, her father steps down as county dreamwalker, passing the honor to her. Some honor. People need help, and she barely knows what to do.

 With a killer dogging her heels and spirits nipping at her mind, Baxley follows her dreams.

My Review

I love the cover of this book! It is spooky with an air of mystery! 

The main character in Maggie Toussaint's latest book, Gone and Done It which is part of the new Dreamwalker series, is Baxley Powell whose psychic gift is just emerging. She has inherited this gift from her father. While I'm not really fond of supernatural stories, the mystery element of the story makes this a good read for me.

Baxley, whose day job is a landscaper as well as a pet-sitter, isn't sure she is ready to be the county psychic or dreamwalker who has the ability to communicate with the dead. While working as a landscaper, Baxley finds a dead body in a client's yard. The police of course are skeptical that she can communicate with this body through her dreamwalking ability. Could a new career as a police consultant be in the works?

This is an interesting paranormal mystery set in coastal Georgia. It is a good story and if you like paranormal mysteries or just mysteries in general be sure to pick up a copy when it releases next month.
