Affinity Book Reviews
This is Maggie Gale’s first outing as a private detective and what an outing it is. This book is superb and wonderfully well written. Full of mystery, intrigue and a real page turner right the way through. I simply couldn’t put this book down once I’d started it. So, be warned, allow a whole day of leisure to read it.I love the characters, Maggie and Kathryn. They are backed up by a strong cast of characters each playing their parts to perfection...
Out Smart Houston Magazine
Liz Bradbury brings us a delightful new lesbian detective, Maggie Gale (love the name). Well plotted and fun, this book might be the best first novel of the season. Off we go on a delightful romp, reminiscent of the days when girl-detective novels were fun and the biggest mystery was if the lust would light off before the story was over. Set this one aside for a summer afternoon beach read — it's perfect. — Review: A.C.

"Stuff I Like" Blog Post
Angel Food...is more than just a mystery. The mystery part was fine. I guessed just enough not to feel stupid and missed just enough not to be disappointed. It’s the rest of it, though, that I enjoyed so much. The main character, Maggie Gale, is multi-talented and multi-faceted, strong, skilled, smart--admirable, but not too perfect. The best part, though, was the relationship at the heart of the story.It felt true, and to me, the working out of intimate relationships is the real mystery!
Mysterious Reviews
Maggie Gale is a multi-dimensional character who takes her job & her relationships seriously. ...she understands the investigative process and she steps right in when a life is in jeopardy, endangering herself as well. Her developing relationship with a college faculty member, Dr. Kathryn Anthony, is sweetly told, & even better for the book, is an integral part of the mystery. The clues...are peppered throughout, & Maggie cleverly pieces them together to discover the who, how & why.
