    Angel's Advocate: CA Reviews

    After arguing her first case in Celestial Court (DEFENDING ANGELS) Bree Winston-Beaufort is ready for a case located in the temporal realm. After all, she’s going to have to have some paying clients to support her staff. When her Aunt Cissy begs her to take a case, Bree’s Southern manners don’t permit her to say ‘no’ outright. Instead, she agrees to meet with a spoiled seventeen-year-old cheerleader whose idea of fun is knocking down a Girl Scout and stealing her cookie money. Adding to the discomfort is the fact that the accused, Lindsey Chandler, is the daughter of the late drug store magnate Probert Chandler, a friend of the family.

    Lindsey is all Bree expected, and worse. But during her visit to Lindsey’s home, Bree makes contact with another client. Probert, who died in a one-car accident four months ago, says he didn’t die in the accident. After checking it out with her staff and the Celestial Court, Bree discovers that Probert is in a lot of trouble in the next world. And she’s the only lawyer equipped to help him with his case.

    The author does a great job of blending paranormal/angelic elements with the usual elements of a cozy mystery. There are still a lot of things about this gig that Bree doesn’t understand. According to her not-quite-human staff, she’ll just have to feel her way along. The reader is making the journey with her. It can be a bit frustrating at times, but that gives readers a window into Bree’s thoughts and actions. Cozy readers who like a bit of a ghost story will enjoy this series. (Rating: 7)
