When an attorney's aunt unexpectedly dies, she discovers her aunt's life was more complex than she realized in the legal mystery, The Advocate's Labyrinth: The Advocate Series Book 12 by Teresa Burrell. When attorney Sabre Brown's Aunt Goldie dies from a heart attack, she becomes the trustee to Goldie's estate. The very first thing Goldie charges her to do is hold off on telling her children of her demise and to change her locks. Believing Goldie has very few assets, Sabre can't believe her eyes when she unlocks her aunt's front door. Goldie was a hoarder, and as Sabre and her brother Ron sift through Goldie's belongings, they discover she had secrets few knew. While juggling her greedy, unpleasant cousins and the legal aspects of Goldie's estate, Sabre finds a few more surprising new elements in Goldie's life, substantially affecting the assets and their distribution. Can Sabre keep the peace long enough to fulfill her aunt's wishes? Can she protect Goldie's legacy?
The Advocate's Labyrinth is a riveting legal mystery depicting the difficulties and surprises a lawyer confronts while performing her duty.

Even characters from the Tuper series have cameo roles in this book. Skillfully written, it is a sensational novel in an outstanding series.
