Review: Gone and Done It by Maggie Toussaint

Baxley is working as a landscaper when she finds bones in the hole she is digging.  This unleashes a lot of problems for her, from being tased by deputies thinking she is is interfering with the scene, to being fired by her employer for bringing unwanted attention.  Baxley has other skills though - she can dreamwalk and see and talk to the deceased and learn things that can help the sheriff in the investigation.  She is a single mother struggling with making ends meet and she thinks if she can help the sherriff, she can add to her income.  She struggles to balance all of the overwhelming things happening in her life to help solve the murder and help the dead woman who haunts her dreams.

It is actually hard to do justice in my summary to all of the interesting elements in this story and the complexity of Baxley's life.  I really enjoyed this book and its characters.  Best one so far this year!
