    great read!

    This is a rather offbeat book that combines a traditional mystery within a paranormal setting. The gist of the series is that the law firm must defend its clients, who have passed on and are in purgatory or hell. Imagine Perry Mason meets the Twilight Zone. Overall, well written, excellent setting (Savannah--America's most haunted city!) and great characters (the majority of which are angels, including the dogs!)

    mystery with a paranormal twist

    this is the 3rd book in the series, but each could stand on their own. I enjoy this twist on the court system, the dogs, solving murders and a a southern town.

    Avenging Angels, Another Must Read!

    This has been such a fun series and lo and behold it just keeps getting better and better. A dab of southern spooky, legal mystery that has opened up a field that is so unique, a cast of characters that are comprised of many angels both two and four legged, well it can't get any better.
    This outing is involving a shyster banker who has lost it all and taken his own life. a wife that is a controlling patron of the theater, typical hangers on, bad guys, sad guys and a plot with many twists and turns.
    The Company is expanding with an office appropriate for the temporal business, complete with the first non-angelic employee but the real work still is done at the office located within Savannah's Murders Cemetery, by Beaufort & Companies heavenly staff.
    We are treated to more enlightenment in Celestial Law at the 6 story court house, but on floor 7..
    Kudos to Mary Stanton for creating a "cozy" mystery like no other, can't wait for book 4 due out early 2011!

    Great New Series

    Paranormal is everywhere these days--which works for me, since I both read it and write it. Stanton's series is simply the best I've found that combines traditional mystery with paranormal. It helps that she's got the craft thing down. The writing is smooth at every level, the characters are lively and interesting, and the setting--Savannah--is as vivid and layered as the characters.

    The premise of Beaufort & Co. is that Bree, an attorney, has inherited her great-uncle's unusual law practice: she has to defend the souls of the (possibly unjustly) damned. Definitely offbeat, and this would be a lousy way for the afterlife to work--but it makes for great stories. There's always a living-world murder to solve before Bree can present her case in the Celestial Court. In Avenging Angel, Bree's client is an apparent suicide--who, naturally, turns out to have been murdered.

    Avenging Angels has possibly the best twist in the series to date. I don't want to say anything to spoil that, and besides, I'm really bad at writing blurbs. (You thought being a writer would make me good at that? No, no. I'm good with 100,000+ words. Conveying the essentials of a story in an entertaining way in 150 words is much harder.) So no plot summary from me--just a strong recommendation to buy this book. And the others in the series.

    I write very few reviews, and should warn you that this one has an ulterior motive: I want Stanton to sell lots and lots of copies so the series will continue and I'll have plenty more Beaufort books to enjoy.

    (Btw, I put my cover up using the "recommend" button not because I'm urging you to buy my books--though that would be nice, I'm sure--but because I haven't figured out how to identify myself with it in my profile, and I don't do anonymous reviews.)

    Another installment in a great series

    This is a fantastic storyline. Extremely original and extremely interesting. The dead have their own court and lawyers. Heaven vs Hell with appeal (forgive the pun).

    Beaufort starts a temporal practice to support and hide her Celestial practice. Her dogs are angels to warn and protect. Her original staff are Angels that are not always seen by "live" people. Her clients are dead that don't always appear when needed nor do they give her the entire story. Some are serving out sentences and others are wanting justice.

    This is a fantastic way to spend an afternoon or evening. And gives a totally new way to look at the afterlife. The clever mixing of the temporal (living) with the celestial (afterlife) keeps you wondering what will happen. The plot does not give away the ending and Mary Stanton keeps you guessing towards the end.

    I've read all three books in this series and will definitely get the next one. And I can wholeheartedly recommend all of these books. Do start at the beginning, it helps to keep the growth of the main characters straight.

    engaging paranormal legal thriller

    When Brianna Winston-Beaufort took over her late Uncle Franklin's Savannah law practice Beaufort & Company, she had no idea what she let herself in for as she works legal matters in the Celestial Court. Her clients are typically spirits and her assistance angels as she is the only mortal (and lawyer) who can enter 66 Angelus St.

    Her current case is a suicide victim banker Russell O'Rourke who allegedly killed himself due to the recession leading to his bankruptcy and shame. Although she struggles with the lack of a law library on line, Bree knows the heavenly law about killing one's self. However, she with Sasha her angelic guard dog at her side and her assistant angels investigate only to find Russell's widow euphoric with his death. As she begins to wonder if Russell's is a victim of a homicide, someone wants Bree needing a lawyer defending her in Celestial Court before she learns the truth of how Russell died.

    The latest Beaufort paranormal legal thriller is an engaging tale due to a strong cast starting with the lead attorney. The story line is fast-paced on earth and in court as Bree and company investigate the suspicious death of Russell as well as appeal his sentencing in the heavenly court. Although similar in tone to the previous two defending their lives entries (see Angel's Advocate and Defending Angels), fans will enjoy this still unique quirky angelic spin n the afterlife.
