Angelís Advocate is a welcome second Beaufort and Company paranormal cozy from Mary Stanton. Taking up where Defending Angels left off, Brianna Winston-Beaufort, attorney at law is working on a new case. Stanton deftly brings readers up to date in this excellent stand-alone story.
Bree returns for her sophomore case in beautiful Savannah, Georgia, the most haunted city in the world. Still awaiting renovations to her main practice, Bree and her staff have settled in at their temporary office at 66 Angelus Street, adjacent to the historic all-murderers cemetery.
A seventeen-year-old high school cheerleader stole $165.26 from a Girl Scout selling cookies in a mall parking lot. In plain site, Lindsay pulled up to the front of the mall, got out of the car, pushed the young girl, and grabbed the shoebox of money, taking off with her girlfriends in her daddyís Hummer. Unfortunately, a quick thinking kid in the parking lot filmed the whole scene on his cell phone and the dirty deed was soon all over the news.
Surprising everyone, including herself, Bree takes the case as a favor to her Aunt Cissy. Not only did the cheerleader attack the much younger Girl Scout in broad daylight, Bree soon discovers Lindsay is a member of the Probert Chandler family of Marlowe drugstore fame. With her beloved rescued dog Sasha by her side, Bree attempts to find a way to help the wayward teen.
In the meantime, her loyal staff, consisting of Ron and Petru, and Livinia, her landlady, uses their own special otherworldly skills to help Bree as only they can. Also making a return appearance is the hunky Lieutenant Sam Hunter.
