There's a body without any suspicious mark of death... the police doesn't know where to start, lucky for them the dream walker, Baxley Powell, is on holidays and free to help them investigate the case. The only problem is that she is on holidays and just wants to relax instead of another case to solve!

"Great. A case I didn't want, with people I didn't want or trust. I didn't like surprises, and this day had been chock full of them. I took a slow breath. Perhaps t wouldn't be bad. Perhaps I could breeze in and solve their case on the spot.
Baxley is a widow, a mother and a dream walker, she is quite new in the paranormal world, but lucky for her all her friends and family will try to help her in this difficult case. She will learn (and will teach us too) some new curious creatures that live in the world among us, some of them fantastic and some mythological, and let me say that it surprised me that the author has mixed them both. I still haven't understood the paper of the "help" Baxley has in the dreams world, is Rose good or bad? See is the perfect evil, but seems to have more secrets than anyone else... maybe we will know more about them in the next books?
I can not leave alone the family situation of Baxley, she is a widow, but doesn't believe that her husband is death, I can understand the need to know the truth, he can not find him in the death world but neither in the live world... so where's her husband? I hope the author will give Baxley some closure soon, I would not like to be in her skin about not knowing the truth about someone you love!
Paranormal books are not the type of books I usually read, but let me say that this case was quite original and with a surprising twist at the end makes you want to know more about the story.
This is the fourth book of the Dreamwalker series, you can read it as standalone, of course, but there are a lot of characters' background that will be lost in the previous books. So I would recommend to start the series from the beginning!
