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.

This series continues to captivate me. It's one of those "I'll just read a little more..." books. Fascinating premise. Good characterizations. Love her family. Who (what?) is the watcher? What is Rose?! And what does she mean for Baxley? What is she going to do with her continually growing collection of pets, corporeal and not.? And, bottom line, who and what IS Baxley?
This is the first book of the Dreamwalker series I have read. I wish I had of read the first 2 books before hand. The first couple of chapters of this book had me a little lost. Once I was more or less introduced to the Characters and their lives I couldn't put the book down. I really got into the characters she brought to the book. This story is a pretty fast paced story with lots of twists and turns. I love how she brought not only humans but animals into the starting rolls of the book. I will be reading the first 2 books soon and cannot wait for the 4th book to come out. The story is about Baxley Powell. She is a Dreamwalker. She is able to travel to the spirit world and talk to the dead. She also works for the Sheriff. Lending her special abilities to help solve crimes. Her newest case is a double murder. Baxley is just learning what all she and her powers can do, it is kind of like on the job training. The more she learns the more danger she could be in in the spirit world, and on our world as well.
Having enjoyed another book in this series, I was curious to meet these character’s again. It appears Baxley’s dreamwalker abilities will be in short supply. A run in with a ghost dog has left her high and dry in that department. Bad timing as she needs them to solve the grisly deaths of two people. She does her best in the investigation, not letting the sheriff know she’s relying on good old fashioned smarts. She also draws on the help of an old nemesis from the other side.. Someone who always asks a high price for her help. The race is on to solve the murders before more bodies start piling up. This was a great next story in the series. Baxley is such a genuine character. She’s strong, doesn’t whine, and just gets things done. All while also running her own business and dealing with some other minor cases. For, instance, the dognapping. I love how the critters, real and ghostly, have key roles in this book. Nothing like fur flying to make it more entertaining. Another fun whodunit you won’t want to miss. I should mention that you can read this without having read the other books. But, I’d recommend you start at the beginning to get the skinny on how it all begins. Why miss out on all the fun.
