    1. The Amorous Attorney A Nick Williams Mystery By Frank W Butterfield, 2016 ASIN B01H2BU2PC190 pagesFour starsI m very much enjoying this new series by a new author new to the genre, at least Frank Butterfield uses his real name, and creates a world that is mostly fantasy, but then again, maybe not Riffing on the Perry Mason novels by Ring Lardner, Butterfield gives them a very gay angle in a San Francisco that is, surprisingly for some, very anti gay In post McCarthy America, homos are embattled, [...]

    2. What a wonderful second book in the Nick Williams mystery series In this book we find Nick, Carter, Margie, Michael, Ben, and Carlo all fired up to start their new company since the news spread in the Hearst rag Carter and the other men were queers Carter, who was out because of a fire truck ran over his knee was fired and the others were suspended The one person is their lawyer, Jeffrey Klien Nick soon discovers that his friend ex and lawyer has been missing from the law firm he started for a w [...]

    3. The first in this series was so enjoyable, I could not resist reading the second one right away Again, nice to visit an imaginary world in which the good guys win, and where the good guys are a beautiful passel of mutually supportive gays, too The trip to Mexico in this book provides some humor about not getting out of San Francisco enough, which tickled me in part because the San Franciscan narrator inevitably concludes that there s no place like home, no matter how lovely the beach resort Same [...]

    4. I m enjoying this series than I thought In my opinion, this series is for a unhurried reader maybe even a mature reader You will not enjoy this book if you re always looking for something to happen it s like walking with the characters through their days Also, there s lots of sex going on however, the reader is never invited to any of it.d I do wish that were different I m finding that I m enjoying each book than I did the one before I hope this is a very long series I don t want it to end. [...]

    5. Book 2, and the series continues to delight I love the way it s written, and yes, it is very reminiscent of the Perry Mason novels which are way different than the TV show that it s paying an homage to I love the idea that people didn t know what guacamole or ceviche or even a margarita was nice legend there in this book Can t wait to read 3 but trying to read them slowly, because they are such a delight.

    6. If you completely enjoyed The Unexpected Heiress, as I did, and read it in one or two days, as I did, then you ll really enjoy The Amorous Attorney Maybe it was just my schedule, but I was able to take my time a bit and savor all of the twists and turns Just as with the previous, there is plenty of unexpected surprises, but this time, we get to explore them Never once did I say, I saw that coming, and never once was I disappointed Giggles and chills will be had, as well as a Cheshire cat grin I [...]

    7. Can t Wait for Next InstallmentI have fallen in love with Nick, Carter, Mike, Marnie and other characters This is a really nice homage to mysteries of the 40 s Frank has painted us with words a vibrant picture of San Francisco, Los Angeles, and even Mexico in that era Before same gender love was acceptable, these MC s lived and loved boldly and unashamedly, and stood up for themselves and others The cases are full of suspense and kept me on the edge waiting for the other shoe to drop Am waiting [...]

    8. Wonderful series Love these stories Lots to go, which is delicious Nick is so cool and Carter is to die for The pages seem to turn themselves Can t wait to find out what these guys do next So fun.
