Confound It (A Dreamwalker Mystery)
by Maggie Toussaint
The mystery is multi-layers and readers will be surprised at the end.
~The Avid Reader
Confound It, like the other Dreamwalker Mysteries, has an extremely original and unique plot. I am continually impressed by the imagination of Author Maggie Toussaint.
Maggie Toussaint created a character and setting that will have a reader racing back to their bookstore shelves to get the rest in the series.
Maggie Toussaint is a talented writer with a curious mind. I love how she makes the reader eagerly look forward to being both stumped and satisfied.
Baxley is busy sorting rumors, following leads, and confronting twists and turns in the well-plotted storyline.
The mystery itself was well written and while I suspected who the “bad guy” was, I didn’t know why. This character just set off my radar…but when it was revealed with the all the details – WOW is all I can say! Quite a twist . . .
. . . this was a fantastic read that kept my attention. I am not a gung-ho paranormal fan by any means, but the dreamwalking, Baxley, and Sam were phenomenal.

About the Book
While hosting out-of-town guests at her Georgia home, Dreamwalker Baxley Powell is called upon to help investigate a suspicious fire. One of her guests, close friend and fellow dreamwalker Deputy Sam Mayes, accompanies her to the scene.
A meth cook is dead, and when Baxley visits her beyond the Veil of Life, she determines that the woman was murdered. Baxley pities Mandy Patterson, a single mother with aspirations for her teenage son Doodle. Unconcerned about the death of a criminal, the authorities pursue the drug-supply chain angle. Baxley worries about Doodle and vows to find out who killed his mother.
As the case grows more baffling, Baxley struggles against her attraction to Sam. Although her husband is missing and declared dead, she does not feel free to love again until she is sure of his fate.
Two suspects have the strongest motive, but Baxley has reason to believe they are pawns in a deeper game. And unless she can stop them, the world will never be the same.
