Synopses & Reviews
With a long list of ethereal clients who need her help, Savannah lawyer Brianna Winston Beaufort?s career choice is beginning to haunt her?
An already dead businessman needs Bree?s help to find his murderer and prove his innocence against the charge of greed, which comes from the mightiest hand of the law, the Celestial Court. And the verdict in this case could put Bree?s life on the line?as well as her client?s afterlife.
"A unique angle and smart plotting highlight the launch of Stanton's Beaufort & Company paranormal mystery series. After inheriting her uncle's Savannah, Ga., law practice, Bree Winston-Beaufort gets a call from Benjamin Skinner, a despised and deceased billionaire. Bree, thrust into the mysterious world of Celestial Law, agrees to represent the late Mr. Skinner before the Celestial Court, where he is on trial for greed. A cast of colorful and imaginative characters, including handsome, annoying PI Gabriel Striker, support her as she searches for witnesses to Skinner's rare altruism and untimely death. Stanton (A Taste for Murder and others as Claudia Bishop) balances the pace skillfully, seamlessly weaving Bree's bewildering supernatural experiences into her investigation. Engaging and charismatic, angel's advocate Bree will be a breath of fresh air for fans of paranormal cozy mysteries." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
Should give Mary Stanton the same kind of cult following usually reserved for Charlaine Harris.
An elegant enchantment with a delightful heroine and a historic setting.
Spooky Southern charm...A real stand-out.
