The Advocate's Dilemma by Teresa BurrellAttorney Sabre Brown’s day is going well until she walks into her office and finds a dead man sprawled across her desk. When, Bob, her best friend and colleague is suspected of the murder, and Sabre’s minor client has information that might clear him, Sabre has a dilemma. How does she help her best friend without betraying the confidence of the child she is sworn to protect?

“They Just keep getting better!”

Again the book has its lighthearted moments and still addresses the problems parents pass on to their children. The cases assigned to the lawyers reflect everyday life and things children must endure in the real world but the author is not on a soap box.

There is always an unexpected twist. JP’s expressions alone are worth the cost of the book and are an added bonus. I loved the book and would recommend it to all my friends.

THE ADVOCATE’S DILEMMA is available from Audible.
