Maggie Dove is a great debut to the Maggie Dove Mystery Series. This well written story has enough quirky characters, intrigue, suspense, humor, and drama that easily draws the reader into Maggie’s amateur sleuth adventures…

This was a well written book with a great plot that kept my attention.
~Melina’s Book Blog

It was a quick read, clean, pleasant, in some moments also sad. It’s well written with vivid descriptions, an amazing set, engaging characters and good dialogue.

The mystery is well written and takes several twists and turns. Just when I thought I might know the identity of the killer, Ms. Breen threw in a twist to make me change my mind.

I liked that Maggie had internal debates with herself, questioning if she was taking the best course of action according to her spiritual heritage and practice.
~Back Porchervations

Maggie Dove is a different kind of mystery story; largely because of the title character herself. She’s a fresh face in this genre – and a welcome one…

I cannot wait for another book by this author.

Maggie Dove: A Mystery
Publisher: Alibi (June 14, 2016)


Susan Breen introduces a charming new series heroine in this poignant and absorbing cozy mystery with a bite. Maggie Dove thinks everyone in her small Westchester County community knows everyone else’s secrets. Then murder comes to town.

When Sunday School teacher Maggie Dove finds her hateful next-door neighbor Marcus Bender lying dead under her beloved oak tree—the one he demanded she cut down—she figures the man dropped dead of a mean heart. But Marcus was murdered, and the prime suspect is a young man Maggie loves like a son. Peter Nelson was the worst of Maggie’s Sunday School students; he was also her late daughter’s fiancé, and he’s been a devoted friend to Maggie in the years since her daughter’s death.

Maggie can’t lose Peter, too. So she sets out to find the real murderer. To do that, she must move past the grief that has immobilized her all these years. She must probe the hidden corners of her little village on the Hudson River. And, when another death strikes even closer to home, Maggie must find the courage to defend the people and the town she loves—even if it kills her.
