Murder Comes by Mail - A Hidden Springs Mystery 2 - by A. H. Gabhart

Cover Art

About the book:

Doing a good deed never felt so bad
Deputy Sheriff Michael Keane doesn't particularly enjoy being touted as the hero of Hidden Springs after pulling a suicidal man back from the edge of the Eagle River bridge in front of dozens of witnesses--a few of whom caught the breathtaking moments with their cameras. But the media hype doesn't last long as a new story pushes its way into the public consciousness of Hidden Springs' concerned citizens.

Photos of a dead girl arrive in the mail, and Michael becomes convinced she was murdered by the man he saved. With a killer one step ahead, things in Hidden Springs begin to unravel. Now Michael must protect the people he loves--because the killer could be targeting one of them next.

My review:

I really enjoyed this cozy mystery set in the quirky small town of Hidden Springs.  I really enjoy Gabhart's writing, especially the unique sayings she'll incorporate that give you a real sense of the place.  Deputy Sheriff Michael Keane was a great character who tried to always do the right and honorable thing, which is usually an admirable quality.  I loved the interesting characters that made up this small town; it was fun to get to know them better after reading book one.  This book worked fine as a stand-alone and I actually liked it better than the first.  It felt like the pacing was better and that the story moved along more quickly and that more was happening.  The mystery was interesting and not really easy to figure out, but I did guess correctly.  There was a little bit of romance and a little bit of a faith element.  It was intriguing to see a different detective with another law enforcement agency in charge of the investigation and how Michael and he didn't get along.  This mystery was wrapped up in the book, but I'm looking forward to seeing what happens with Michael, his love interest and the rest of the characters in the next mystery!  I highly recommend this book if you like mysteries!

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
