What the bloggers and reviewers thought:
One woman out for revenge with a plan up her sleeve to discredit Gareth. I enjoyed this. There is the wonderful writing that is Faith’s style, a good plot line (or two) and some likeable characters.
This is a Romantic Suspense by Faith Martin writing as Maxine Barry. I’ve read most, if not all, of her mysteries and found them to be well written with solid plots and unforgettable characters.
Very good read. Good story. I wasnt sure how I felt about Davina. I did enjoy the ending. Faith is one of my favourite authors. I hope there is more to come.
A great read with a good ending too. I for one, like Maxine’s style of writing in these books and am hoping Faith will bring Maxine back for more of these type of stories!
Overall this is an entertaining romance/mystery and has a really gentle story telling feel. The characters and setting are well developed and suck you into this story. Recommended for cosy mystery lovers who like something a little different.
Maxine Barry deftly juggles passion, murder, vengeance and desire in this gripping, engrossing and entertaining romantic suspense novel. An Oxford Revenge draws readers into the story from the beginning and the twists and turns, pathos, drama and emotion will keep readers hooked and completely riveted to the page until the final full stop.

AN OXFORD REVENGE by Faith Martin writing as Maxine Barry
Publisher – JOFFE BOOKS
Publication Date – 28th May 2020
Genre – Romance
Author – Maxine Barry
Davina is still reeling from the death of her step-brother and manages to secure a fellowship to Oxford University to seek out the tutor who was responsible.
As I expect from Faith Martin/ Maxine Barry the characters develop well and the detailed descriptions of the area puts the reader at the scene very effectively.
As Davina settles in to Oxford and puts her plan into action more characters and their lives play a part in what happens next.
This is more romance than suspense but a good read.
