41) Avenging Angels by Mary Stanton

The Blurb -

Law school hasn't prepared Bree to appeal cases for the dead. After inheriting her great-uncle's haunted law firm, she must now represent ex-banker O'Rourke, who supposedly killed himself after losing a fortune. But with a merry widow and evidence mounting, it's beginning to look like murder. So Bree and her team of angels begin to investigate. But Bree soon discovers that someone would rather see her deceased than debriefed.

My Thoughts -

I throughly enjoyed the first couple of books in this series but Avenging Angels was a poor third book. After letting this book sit too long on my to be read pile I was excited about finally sitting down with it. However the whole book felt like an uphill struggle and I was left confused by the complicated case and uninteresting plot.

Although I also have to say that this paranormal cozy does have quite a lot going for it. A great leading lady and a nice concept really do make this series readable. Maybe book four will make the series shine again. There is always one book in a series that isn't as good as the rest and Avenging Angels could just be that book. So book four, Angel's Verdict, will be going on my wishlist. I just won't be rushing off to buy it right now.

I am sorry this one didn't live up to your expectations. I really hate it when that happens. I often don't finish a book I don't like, and try again a few months later as it could be a mood thing.

I actually realised that I did start this one once before and couldn't get into it. So this time I did manage to keep going but it just didn't compare to the previous books in the series.
