Another great installment in this series. The characters are interesting and, this time, the sheriff actually shows some better qualities. (But he's still a blatant womanizer!) The puzzling mystery of the murder(s) is solved through Baxley's hard work. But what's up with her missing husband? And who is the watcher in the woods? And what is Rose?

Baxley Powell is Sinclair County, Georgia's new "official" dreamwalker and she has a lot to learn both about this world and the world of spirits. And she needs to learn in a hurry because although she and the sheriff hear the dying man say, "Bubba done it," there are a overabundance of Bubbas around and each has a motive to kill the victim, the president of the local bank. And the Bubba that done done it, does not want Baxley to figure out which Bubba and why, because without Baxley, the sheriff doesn't appear to have a clue. Set in richly described coastal Georgia, Bubba Done it is filled with wonderful characters and complex small-county relationships, Toussaint keeps the narrative moving as first one Bubba then another becomes suspect. It's a fun read that you won't want to put down until you too know that Bubba done it!

Dollycas’s Thoughts In this follow up to Gone and Done It we find Baxley with her hands full and way too many Bubbas that could be tied up in a recent murder. The sheriff tries to take the easy route by arresting each of them with very little proof which drives Baxley to do a little investigating of her own. Her daydreaming doesn’t help much as the victim is unable to talk, so she has to start asking questions putting herself in danger. I really like Baxley. A strong woman dealing with life the best she can. In addition to dreamwalking and consulting with the local police she does landscaping and pet sitting to provide for herself and her daughter. He husband has been declared dead by the military but all his benefits are tied up in red tape. There are even some indicators that he may not be dead. All of the characters, Baxley, her daughter, her parents, the Bubbas and more are very well written. Sheriff Wayne drives me a bit crazy. I picture him as a Barney Fife from Mayberry, only with more power. He bumbles around this case looking for a quick, easy solution without trying to see the big picture. Just because the dying man whispered, “Bubba done it” doesn’t mean you arrest the first Bubba you see. The South is full of Bubbas. He even pulls one of the out of the hospital having medical tests done just because his name is Bubba. He is more of an arrest first, ask questions later kind of guy. Thank God for Baxley and her butting in, I mean consulting, on the case. Baxley and her family’s gifts of dreamwalking, crystal powering and ESP connections really flow easily throughout the story. The reader just knows this is their way and it is very natural. This case is tied up by the last page but we still have questions. Is Baxley’s husband alive? and if he is why hasn’t he come home? Does Baxley’s daughter have dreamwalking abilities too? Just how do Baxley’s parents make ends meet? I am anxiously awaiting the next book to find out more about this great cast of characters.

Loved It! This is a great book; this is the second book in the Dreamwalker series by Maggie Toussaint. Baxley Powell is a dreamwalker and helps the police solve murders. When she gets a ride with the sheriff, they get a call to help with a stabbing. When she gets there the victims whispers “Bubba Done It” before he dies. For some reason she can’t talk to the victim when she dream walks so she has to use her amateur sleuthing skills to find the killer. This book is very entertaining with some southern charm. If you are looking for a great mystery that will leave you guessing until the end then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book by this author.  A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Baxley is a dreamwalker.  She can crossover and talk to the dead.  She has taken over the job of dreamwalker with the Sheriff's Department from her Father.  The Sheriff takes her to the scene of a 911 call.  Morgan is dying from stab wounds and he whispers "Bubba Done It.".  Sinclair County, Ga has more than it's fair share of Bubbas.  Which Bubba done it? Baxley is a single mother raising her daughter after the death of her husband in the military.  She struggles with her finances, her parents, and her daughter.  This is a typical small town where everyone knows you and your family.  It is a wonderful way to live but presents challenges too! I like books with an element of paranormal and this one delivers.  It is full of twists and turns.  The ending was a total surprise.  Curl up in you favorite reading chair and enjoy the journey Maggie Toussaint takes you on.

A Great Mystery Contemporary, Mystery Sinclair County, Georgia Baxley Powell is a consultant for the police where her dreamwalking talent for talking to the dead helps solve murders. It also makes her pet-sitting and landscaping businesses take a back seat. While Baxley is riding with the sheriff a stabbing call comes in via a 911 call. When they arrive at the scene they find the knife is still in the victim’s chest. The victim is the bank president and with his last breath he whispers “Bubba done it.” Sinclair County, Georgia, unfortunately is full of Bubbas, four of them. Each one also has ties to the victim. Baxley dreamwalks only to find that the dead banker is forbidden to talk to her. Now Baxley must search among the living. The top suspects are a crack-head evangelist, a politically-connected investor, a down-on-his-luck fisherman and even worse Baxley’s brother-in-law who was also the high school sweetheart of the dead man’s ex-wife. Baxley finds more connections between each suspect and the victim as she digs for answers. With Baxley’s brother-in-law keeping company with the victim’s ex he also manages to raise suspicions about his involvement. Baxley need to find the killer because if she doesn’t her brother-in-law could go to jail which would let the real killer to get away with it. This is a fun mystery that keeps taking turns that will have readers guessing just who is behind the murder and why they did it. While readers could read this as a standalone it would be greatly enhanced if they read the first book before this one. Just as readers think they have it figured out another clue comes to light that will have them wondering if they are on the right track or not. The story doesn’t let up until the very end. This is series that will have mystery readers wanting to read the books and eagerly awaiting the next one. The characters are well written and add a lot to the story. This is one series definitely worth checking out. Received a review copy

This is the first book in this series and by this author that I have read. I did enjoy this book and will now be going back to look for the first one. I do not normally read paranormal books but when it comes to my cozy mystery type books I am game for anything. It is interesting to read how Baxley is learning to use her gift of communicating with dead people to help solve this crime. This book held my attention from the first page. There are so many Bubbas in this town that you will keep trying to guess which Bubba did it as it could be more than one of them.   I think the author does a good job of developing the story and describing the scenes so you can feel as if you are part of this story.  The whole cast of characters are very unique and interesting and it was fun getting to know them. I am looking forward to reading more by this author.
