AUTHOR: Ann H. Gabhart
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.
Author Ann H. Gabhart takes us back to the quiet town of Hidden Springs for her second cozy mystery, but the quiet doesn’t last long. Deputy Michael Keane’s instinctive lunge to save a suicidal man triggers a string of disturbing murders, each one tied somehow to the deputy. As he strives to solve the case and prevent any more murders, we are drawn into his turmoil and the unease of the whole community.
I was able to guess the murderer’s identity, but that did not detract from my pleasure in reading this story. Its tension kept me involved in the story, kept the pages turning. As always, Ann Gabhart’s characters were realistic, some quirky, many intriguing, and some downright strange.
I thoroughly enjoyed Murder Comes By Mail, and it earns four and a half stars. I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
