Murder Comes by Mail by A.H. Gabhart - Review

I received this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: May 17, 2016
Number of pages: 352
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Series: Hidden Springs Mystery #2

A Cozy Mystery Complete with a Small Town Full of Charming, Quirky Characters
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.
Readers will love racing along with Deputy Sheriff Keane as the clock ticks in this page-turning mystery.

What did I think of this book:
If you are a fan of Ann Gabhart's Amish books then I would suggest you also give her cozy mystery series a try. She is a very good author whose writing seems to flow very nicely. This book was a quick read for me. Hidden Springs is one of those towns that we would all like to live in despite the murders that seem to be happening. Although that seems to happen everywhere now. The author did a good job of keeping you on your toes and give you just enough clues to think you know who the killer is but then gives you twist to remind you that you may not have figured it out yet. This story is filled with some great characters. This murder becomes personal for Michael as his family is now being targeted. Take a little trip to Hidden Springs this holiday weekend to help solve the newest mystery in this fun series.
