Lesbian Book Review: Angel Food & Devil Dogs by Liz Bradbury

Greetings my dear Lesbiatopians. I'd like to present to you my first book review on Lesbiatopia featuring a Lesbian author. As soon as I put a call out to review these books for the site, Liz Bradbury was the first one I thought of. She is a wonderful, local activist in the gay community I've known for quite some time. She's actually my first "INTERVIEW WITH AN AUTHOR" that I will be posting soon. Except for a little Nancy Drew back in the day, I was never much into mystery novels. Liz makes it fun, and specially hand crafted for our peeps. I believe she's definitely one to contend with in the mystery genre.



ANGEL FOOD AND DEVIL DOGS

By Liz Bradbury

Maggie Gale, Private Detective is my new lesbian hero. Although fictional, she's an excellent role model. I don't think we have enough of those in the lesbian community, or in our community, period. I feel that many times through books and/or movies we're fed these caricatures, the usual stereotype of what we're "supposed" to be like, created and written through the eyes of the hetero type. Ms. Gale's character is truly someone you wish you knew in real life. When I grow up, I wanna be just like Maggie, (she is AWESOME with the ladies!) Liz Bradbury's debut novel Angel Food and Devil Dogs definitely hits it's mark as being the classic mystery "who-done-it" combined with some imaginative, amazingly sensual, erotic lesbian romance, (which is very tastefully written without jeorpardizing the steaminess). In spite of the fact that at times Bradbury gets a little too political correct for me, and certain references or phrases used may seem a bit outdated and old fashioned, you can't help but fall for Maggie and become envious of her way of life. I look forward to enjoying the rest of the "Maggie Gale Mysteries" series, the next one to be titled "Being the Steel Drum Man". We can all use a little "Maggie" in our lives. Actually, I feel like a new and improved lesbian just by reading about her. - 4 stars
