Doggone It by Maggie Toussaint is the third book in the “Dreamwalker” mystery series. Publisher: Five Star Publishing, October 2016
Dreamwalker Baxley Powell is worried when she’s summoned to a haunted house. A recent ghost dog encounter short-circuited her woo-woo powers. She bluffs her way through the double homicide where a boat captain and a movie crew member bled out from knife wounds.
Her extra senses return in fits and spurts as she consults with the sheriff. Suspects include the captain’s good-for-nothing brother, the movie guy’s replacement, and, of course, his stalker. The media circus jeopardizes the movie’s funding, the sheriff’s job, and Baxley’s senses.
Will Baxley’s powers recharge 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 Three of Toussaint’s Dreamwalker Series.
This was a fast-paced and action-packed drama that quickly grabbed my attention as I followed the path that was set by the author. The narrative was intense in that it pulled me in and I was right there with Baxley as she used her dreamwalker powers to help the police capture their prey. I liked how this was set-up with a murder here and another murder there and when it was done, it was a mind-blowing affair when the real discovery was made. I love a book where the recurring characters all played a pivotal role that connected the story with all that was happening as it related to what was going on in the heroine’s world. And what a world it is. . .quite intriguing to say the least. The author did a great job in building this mystery up to a point where I didn’t know how this was going to end with a few surprises thrown in that had me frantically reading to the end to see if Baxley was successful in getting what was hers. Boasting a great cast of characters with engaging dialogue, this was a terrific read and I can’t wait to see what new adventures awaits Baxley in both her world.
