REVIEWS FOR ANGEL OF WINDWORD
COLD COFFEE MAGAZINE
Maggie Dove writes a wonderful debut novel in a style similar to that of famed romance writer Judith McNaught with intelligent writing and well developed characters, no pun intended. She deftly builds on the much used “girl forced into marriage with a man she does not know while she has a true love from childhood that she must leave behind” and weaves a tale that is gripping and fresh. That the hero and heroine do fall in love is no surprise and exactly what every romance reader wants. That she builds the murder mystery to a very suspenseful end that keeps the reader guessing throughout the tale is rewarding to the reader and a testament to Dove’s writing skill. She even pokes fun at the frivolity of romance novels with excerpts from a book author supposed to be the rage in London and beyond at the time. Look for Maggie Dove’s name on the bestsellers list in the future. These 242 pages could have been 500 and the reader would be left wanting more…

5 Bookmarks Review from Mind Fog Reviews!
“Angel of Windword” by Maggie Dove keeps you enthralled every minute with the twists and turns provided by her writings. Set in the late 1800s and early 1900s Angelique discovers her true love after many trials and tribulations some of which you would never expect to happen. Ms. Dove’s descriptions and conversations are not boorish to say the least. The conversations and descriptions match the era depicted. I would love to see any other writings that Ms. Dove has to offer readers.“Angel of Windword” reads like a “feature presentation” on a movie channel such as Lifetime. I recommend this 5 bookmark rated novel for any reader of romance. 5 Bookmarks.
