Book Review-The Advocate's Illusion (The Advocate Series Book 9) - Teresa Burrell

Friday, March 8, 2019

Sabre O. Brown, Attorney takes on mostly cases involving children and works closely with Child Protection Services. There are three cases she is working on at one time--boys who have been taken away from their Mom--and the Dad--well--I sure would not want to live with him. She has to try and find a family member where these 2 boys will be safe. Then there is the child bride. Her father is the pastor of a church and married her off to a much older man--the father says that only the church can sanction a marriage--no need for the state--the 14 year old runs away-who is helping her and who will win--the father or the state? Meanwhile her Mom is dating someone she met on line--Sabre and her brother have to make sure he isn't a con artist! Then she and her friend go to a magic show where things go very wrong--who is behind trying to murder Sabre?

This book will have you guessing at every turn. There are so many twists it is sometimes hard to keep up with them all. Definitely a book I suggest reading--especially if you are interested in child protection.
