Overview

The Advocate's Geocache by Teresa Burrell

Attorney Sabre Brown is having a great time geocaching, the Internet's version of a treasure hunt. The fun ceases when she "caches" a container with an official death certificate citing "Murder by Poison" as the cause of death. Even more disturbing is that the date of death is ten days in the future.

Sabre is forced to search cache after cache, each revealing more clues, until they take an unexpected twist and shockingly point to one of her court cases. Is the murderer a rejected child, a well-known plastic surgeon, a scorned ex, a crooked lab technician, or a politician in line for the highest office in the land? Or is someone playing Sabre in an ugly geocache of life and death?

Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite The Advocate's Geocache is Book 7 of The Advocate Series by Teresa Burrell. Sabre Brown, attorney and children’s advocate, has an interesting hobby – geocaching, treasure hunting on the internet. When she and her sidekick Bob find the latest “treasure,” it stops being fun. A death certificate dated 10 days ahead, with a cause of death as murder by poison, is baffling, not just to Sabre but to private investigator JP Torn. The geocache leads her to more clues until she reveals one that points towards one of her own court cases – five children with four different fathers and a shallow mother who would rather see her children in foster care than give up chasing a dream. Can Sabre find the clues and prevent the murder before it happens? What has it got to do with these children? And do Sabre and JP finally get it together? The Advocate’s Geocache (The Advocate Series Book 7) is another cracking read from Teresa Burrell. I had the advantage of having read the previous books in the series so I was already well acquainted with the main protagonists. However, Ms. Burrell provides sufficient character development for anyone who is reading this on its own to understand who the characters are and their backgrounds. The plot is clever, different, and I found I learned quite a bit about geocaching along the way as the author provided plenty of detail. There are a lot of twists and turns in this heart-stopping race against time, definitely not a book to read when you are distracted by other things! Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable book, and another great addition to the series.

Reviewed by Lex Allen for Readers' Favorite The Advocate’s Geocache by Teresa Burrell is the seventh novel in The Advocate Series. Sabre Brown, an attorney advocate for children in California, has a busy life that gets even busier when her newest hobby, geocaching, turns up an official death certificate dated ten days in the future. Sabre can’t resist the lure of this mystery and she enlists the aid of her current boyfriend, JP Torn, a private detective, and her best friend, fellow attorney Bob Clark, to track and solve the puzzle. Unable to stop the murder, the chase becomes a hunt for the killer and there are several suspects, not the least of whom could be one of her current court cases. Jumping into the middle of a long running series is often difficult as there is no connection to the development of the characters and the author may assume the books will be read in order. The Advocate’s Geocache is a rare exception in that Burrell, a skilled and experienced author, deftly introduces each character with short, concise narrative that instantly captures the reader’s empathy, sympathy or dislike. Of particular delight for me was the efficiency with which the author weaves the ups and downs of everyday personal relationships into the main murder mystery plot, with effortless skill and realism. Last, but not least, the near inevitable series cliffhanger, often so steep you’re left wondering where the hell it came from, is totally absent in The Advocate’s Geocache. This tale ends conclusively and satisfactorily. As a new fan of Teresa Burrell, I suspect the same can be said for all of her books. I intend to find out.

Reviewed by Cheryl E. Rodriguez for Readers' Favorite Teresa Burrell has done it again! The Advocate’s Geocache is a perfect blend of fun and suspense. Sabre Brown remains devoted to her work as a child advocate attorney in San Diego. She and JP are in a good place in their relationship, and are putting effort into sharing each other’s interests. When out on a geocache adventure, they discover a mysterious cache. A Death Certificate dated for a future date. It may be nothing, or could be something - a hoax, a coincidence or truth. Suspense grows; the mystery heightens with each subsequent geocache. What started out as simple fun turns into a race to prevent death. The Advocate’s Geocache by Teresa Burrell is an adventure of intrigue. Burrell’s writing style is very entertaining, her use of metaphors and similes always make me chuckle. They add a unique flair to her storytelling. The story is fast paced, moving from location to location on a hunt for truth. As a resident of San Diego county, it was fun following the trail of activity. I caught myself saying, “I know exactly where they are.” As the plot intensifies, the characters grow - doctors, politicians, attorneys, Hollywood wannabes, friends and family make up the cast of characters. Each character impacts the narrative in a critical way, adding an element of mystery. Page after page, the reader is captivated, wondering “who’s creating these geocaches?” It’s her, no it’s him - everyone is a suspect. Is this real or a sick prank? The Advocate’s Geocache keeps you guessing up to its end.

Teresa Burrell in her new book, “The Advocate’s Geocache” Book Seven in the Advocate series published by Silent Thunder Publishing gives us another case for Attorney Sabre Brown. From the back cover: Attorney Sabre Brown is having a great time geocaching, the Internet’s version of a treasure hunt. The fun ceases when she “caches” a container with an official death certificate citing “Murder by Poison” as the cause of death. Even more disturbing is that the date of death is ten days in the future. Sabre is forced to search cache after cache, each revealing more clues, until they take an unexpected twist and shockingly point to one of her court cases. Is the murderer a rejected child, a well-known plastic surgeon, a scorned ex, a crooked lab technician, or a politician in line for the highest office in the land? Or is someone playing Sabre in an ugly geocache of life and death? Let me start out by saying that the previous six books in this series have been very exciting however this book is, by far, Ms. Burrell’s best offering so far. There is murder, paternity issues, Child Custody and Geocaching. Geocaching is the 21st Century equivalent of the old Treasure Hunt. “The Advocate’s Geocache” is one tough case. Sabre Brown and J.P. found the first geocache with the official death certificate dated ten days in advance. Then the race is on. The case requires J.P. to go to Nashville, the team get involved with a rich and powerful family and there is murder. All this while Sabre is working on a custody hearing and getting involved with paternity issues. Ms. Burrell has given us a story that is rich with sub-plot and mystery that will keep you guessing as you flip the pages as fast as you can read them. Sabre, J.P., her brother, Ron and, of course, Bob, are some of the finest characters that you ever want to hang out with. Plus there is a whole host of other characters that you will love and some that you will really hate. “The Advocate’s Geocache” is very exciting and great fun to read.

The Advocate’s Geocache by Teresa Burrell is the seventh book in The Advocate series. Sabre Orin Brown is an attorney with a juvenile court practice. She works with private investigator, J.P. Torn (he is also her boyfriend). Sabre is working on the McFerran case. There are five children: Conway Twitty, Trace Adkins, Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire, and Taylor Swift McFerran (can you tell their mother has a country music fetish). Their mother, Brandy McFerran has a constant stream of boyfriends while she is busy trying to get into singing and her latest enterprise, acting. The boyfriends tend to be lazy and abusive which is how Brandy lost her children. Sabre Brown is the children’s attorney and wants what is best for them. Sabre is out geocaching with her boyfriend, J.P. when they find an unusual item. Instead of the normal log book and trinkets, they find a death certificate in a cardboard cylinder. The certificate if for someone named Monroe with the date of death in one week and the cause of death is poison. Since the police cannot investigate a possible crime, Sabre along with J.P. and her Sabre’s brother, Ron look into the death certificate. The certificate leads them to another geocache sight. While exploring the geocache mystery, Sabre starts to notice some similarities to her McFerran case. The Monroe on the death certificate could be the Monroe Bullard. Brandy (who was 15 at the time) claims that Monroe is Conway Twitty McFerran’s biological father. Sabre follows the clues to figure out the geocache puzzle while advocating for her client’s. I truly enjoyed reading The Advocate’s Geocache. A delightful cozy mystery. I give The Advocate’s Geocache 5 out of 5 stars. It is easy and fun book to read. A delightful way to spend a Saturday afternoon. I have not read the previous books in the series, but it did not hinder me from enjoying The Advocate’s Geocache. I received a complimentary copy of The Advocate’s Geocache from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The review and opinions are my own.
