A worthy, sympathetic heroine in a compelling paranormal mystery and romance series.

Baxley, the heroine of this intriguing paranormal mystery series, is a Dream-Walker, one who can communicate with the spirit world. This gift is both a responsibility and a danger, with hidden and overt costs. At the same time, being a Dream Walker can bestow great insights, and help to bring rest and justice to the dead.

At this point in the series Baxley is a widow, according to the military, as her husband Roland is missing. Baxley however does not feel like a widow and when a fellow Dream-Walker Sam Mayes appears Baxley feels torn between Sam and Roland.

There is physical risk and danger, too, as Baxley is drawn into an investigation concerning a dead Meth Cook, where her loyalties are tested. Who dare she trust?

In this fast-paced mystery with many twists and suspects I loved the rich characters, the dream-walking itself, the great animals such as watch pigs and therapy dogs. I also really liked learning about Native American beliefs, healing and magic. Maggie Toussaint has an excellent ear for dialogue and also for revealing the lives of the country people of Sinclair County Georgia with all its kindnesses and cruelties.

I especially loved the ending of this novel, a blend of acceptance and love, of letting go and looking forward.

I will certainly seek out the rest of this series.
