Dreamwalker Baxley Powell can’t remember the last time she had such a crappy weekend. A twilight encounter with a ghost dog left her numb and disoriented, her dreamwalker abilities are wiped out, and the sheriff just summoned her to a double homicide.
With no access to the spirit world, Baxley bluffs her way through the crime scene where a movie star’s assistant and a charter boat captain were strung up and bled dry. In a haunted house, no less. Figuring out who killed these people will be a real challenge without her ability to speak to the dead.
Just when Baxley thinks her powers are returning, her dreamwalks malfunction. With the sheriff pushing her to solve the case quickly, Baxley teams up with a dognapping medium to boost her powers.
Suspects include Bee’s good-for-nothing brother, the assistant’s replacement, and, of course, his stalker. All of Sinclair County is on edge, and the media circus isn’t helping. At stake are the movie’s funding, the sheriff’s job, and Baxley’s senses.
Can Baxley safeguard her abilities and solve the case before the killer strikes again?
Haunted houses, lost pirate treasure, conniving in-laws, supernatural baddies, and a determined ghost dog test amateur sleuth Baxley Powell’s mettle in Book 3 of Toussaint’s Dreamwalker Series.
My review of Doggone It
Ready for a walk on the paranormal side? Toussaint’s third foray into the wild world of the paranormal. It is filled with ups and downs, touching emotion, and high tension.
The dialogue between the characters is believable. In fact, enough so that I found myself becoming irritated with the demanding sheriff as he pushed Baxley into difficult situations when she obviously wasn’t ready.
The writing in “Doggone It” is direct, and can be sparse at times. There’s little fluff in this paranormal whodunnit with the irrepressible Baxley and her band of paranormal supporters.
