"reminds me alot of the cozy mysteries written by Charlaine Harris"
Savannah was a place where Bree spent a few summers when
she was growing up but when her uncle dies and leaves her
his law practice she sees it as her new home. While
renovations are made to the office, Bree has to find
somewhere to rent so she can start work. An old house in
the middle of an all-murderers' cemetery is spooky but in
her price range, so she listens to the voice in her head
and takes on the lease.
Then the strange things start happening. First a package
from an old professor with her new office address, that she
hasn't announced yet, on it. Then a phone call from a man
who died earlier in the day. Spooky but nothing that can't
be explained, Bree doesn't realise that she has just opened
a ghostly new law practice and her first client is already
in the afterlife.
This is the first book in a paranormal cozy mystery series
called Beaufont & Company. This first book is sometimes
slow and also a little confusing at times but by the end of
the book I was sure that this is a series I want to follow.
Not only is this fresh and new but it is quite charming as
well. This stands out because it is extremely different to
anything I have come across until now. Ghosts, afterlife
and angels are all mixed into a law firm and it has a great
main character to put it all together.
Defending Angels is the first book in the series and
Angel's Advocate, the second installment, is due out in
July. A nice blend of paranormal and mystery, this has
grabbed my attention and it reminds me a lot of the cozy
mysteries written by Charlaine Harris.
