    Once again DEFENDING ANGELS, Bree stars in an exciting paranormal legal thriller

    She had no idea what she let herself in for when she agreed to take over the legal practice of her late uncle's Beaufort & Company. The practice located at 66 Angelus St in Savannah cannot be found by mortals; only angels and sprits can enter; except for Brianna Winston-Beaufort as she is the firm's only lawyer and sole mortal. Her clients are spirits appealing their sentencing in Celestial Court as unfair. She has an angel dog Sasha as her companion and guard.-----

    Her latest case starts in the mortal realm which gives her hope she might bring in some real money. Seventeen year old Lindsay Chandler stole $165 from an eight year old selling Girl Scout cookies. Bree goes out to the Chandler estate to meet her client. A few months ago Lindsay's father died in a car accident, but when Bree sits in his chair, he claims he was murdered and wants her to represent him in Celestial Court. Bree has a hunch that the father and daughters cases are related to the robberies of pseudophedrine occurring in Chandler's warehouse. She soon finds herself protected by angelic guard dogs as the powers that be believe the lawyer to the afterlife is in mortal danger.-----

    Once again DEFENDING ANGELS, Bree stars in an exciting paranormal legal thriller anchored by a strong investigation and by things that go bump in the night that are really there; the audience will need to sleep with a light on. The whodunit is clever so that readers cannot easily connect the dots as Mary Stanton provides an off-beat quirky mystery filled with eccentric characters; on earth and beyond.---

    great mystery

    This was book 2 in series. If you like a good mystery with just a twist of paranormal, this book is great. The main character Bree begins to grow as a lawyer, detective and lawyer to the dead.

    Angel's Advocate, Another Unique Book in the Beaufort & Co. Series

    Book two in the Beaufort & Co Mystery series opens with Brianna Winston-Beaufort, a new attorney in the historic jewel of the Deep South, Savannah, Georgia, offering her services, via coercion by Bree's Mom's socialite younger sister, Aunt Cissy. The client has the ability to provide the new firm with much needed cash flow but defending a wealthy over-indulged teenage hooligan isn't Bree's field of law. but her very recently departed tycoon father is also in need of her services and might help to explain why bad girl daughter is the mess she is. This is a very dysfunctional family with secrets to unfold.

    We get to revisit Detective Hunter who seems to be taking an interest in this new law firm and Bree. Cordelia Eastburn, District Attorney with the unabashed ambition to be the first African American female governor of Georgia. Family position will not get a spoiled delinquent a pass from justice.

    The Company Staff is the backbone and extended family. Ron, Bree's very charming administrative assistant, Petru, the firms researcher with extraordinary skills, we are introduced to Belli and Miles the mysterious canine muscle whose job is to protect Bree from all temporal & "other" physical threats, and Sasha her devoted canine companion.

    As more of the structure of the Celestial Court unfolds so does our knowledge of what this will mean to the defendants and their counsel. I enjoy the continuing education as to the why's and wherefores of the plots in this series, providing a unique premise which makes for enjoyable reading.

    Much better than the first!!!

    I really enjoyed this book even more than I did the first. The first was great for background; but perhaps too much time on background and not enough on original story? Anyway, this one held my attention and I could not wait to get back to it when I HAD to put it down. Cannot wait for the third. I have enjoyed her other series, but not nearly as much as this one. Keep them coming, please.

    Book no#2

    I have read both and enjoyed both. Looking forward to no#3.
    I don't want to give anything away, it'll take way from uniqueness.

    An Angelic Team

    Angel's Advocate is a lot of fun. The Beaufort & Company series has been passed around at work.

    My new favorite series

    This book kept me reading until the wee hours of the morning. I was so into the characters and their journey. The series keeps you interested because there's an underlying story plot going on with the who/what of the main characters. That's layered into the main plot of trying to clear a dead man's name. I would recommend this to someone who likes paranormal mysteries, or anyone who just needs a getaway from the normal hum-drums of life.

    Love this series

    I love this series. I like the idea of her character having to defend some of the worst individuals that are condemned to the otherside-as well as those who are on this side. I am waiting for her next book in this series

    Heavenly justice: Everyone deserves an advocate!

    Much to her surprise, Brianna Winston-Beaufort of Georgia's Winston-Beauforts, recently inherited her Uncle Ben's practice, Beauford and Company, with its unusual clientele. Located at 66 Angelus Street, the living have a hard time finding Brianna's office, but her departed clientele have no problem locating her. Bree's Aunt Cissy has promised her friend that Bree would help her daughter, Lindsey, caught on tape pushing down a 9 year old girl scout and stealing her money. Lindsey would prefer not to take the case, but soon after she speaks with her, she has a hellish visitor, Lindsay's recently deceased pharmacy tycoon father engulfed in flames and begging her to help him with an appeal and saying the words, "The blow came from no where..I didn't die in the car. Marlowe's. Lindsay. Blood. Blood. Blood." And so, Bree has two clients, one departed who wants an appeal, and the second, Brianna. Things are not what they seem at first glance, and Brianna is soon mired in villains, betrayals, and treachery. The key is Lindsay's band as a drug distribution system. Stanton has created an intriguing world of a court system in Heaven. The courts are in Heaven and the punishment is in Hell. Fascinating.
