What the bloggers and reviewers thought:

Nicki’s book blog

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.

Linda Strong Book Reviews

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.

Sue Wallace Site

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.

Beyond the Books

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!

Herding Cats

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.

Bookish Jottings

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.

Davina Granger wants revenge. She blames Dr Gareth Lacey for her brother’s suicide. When she gets a fellowship at his Oxford college, she finally has her chance to punish him. But her plan never included falling in love with him.
But is he really as guilty as she thinks?
Alicia Norman is a student at the same college. She’s excited to leave her sheltered, privileged existence for college life and a chance of love and adventure. But her brother and his friends will do anything to stop her from being with someone they think isn’t posh enough. Including murder?
HOW FAR WILL THEY GO?
Revenge isn’t always as sweet as you think. And romance can play havoc with the best-laid plans.

My Review

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.
