Book Summary

While hosting out-of-town guests at her Georgia home, Dreamwalker Baxley Powell is called upon to help investigate a suspicious fire. One of her guests, close friend and fellow dreamwalker Deputy Sam Mayes, accompanies her to the scene. A meth cook is dead, and when Baxley visits her beyond the Veil of Life, she determines that the woman was murdered. Baxley pities Mandy Patterson, a single mother with aspirations for her teenage son Doodle. Unconcerned about the death of a criminal, the authorities pursue the drug-supply chain angle. Baxley worries about Doodle and vows to find out who killed his mother. As the case grows more baffling, Baxley struggles against her attraction to Sam. Although her husband is missing and declared dead, she does not feel free to love again until she is sure of his fate. Two suspects have the strongest motive, but Baxley has reason to believe they are pawns in a deeper game. And unless she can stop them, the world will never be the same. Book 5 in the Dreamwalker Mystery series.

Book Review by Bree Herron

Supernatural mystery and one that I was able to sink my teeth into. It was unique and thrilling, I had never heard of a dream-walker before reading this book. It is an interesting power that one may possess.Maggie Toussaint created a character and setting that will have a reader racing back to their book store shelves to get the rest in the series. Baxley is a character beyond this world, she takes a reader on a rider through many levels of life and death, I really liked that she was known for her talents and called upon for such. It was nice to see her a part of the community.  I really loved how all the worlds tied together, it was an interesting aspect of the plot.

Overall, I enjoyed this mystery. It had spirit, spunk and was just refreshing from other mysteries. It is one that I would recommend to readers that enjoy a brilliantly plotted mystery and characters that stand out!
