Murder Comes By Mail ~ Review

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

Welcome back to Hidden Springs a quiet small town where nothing exciting every happens - unless you count murder.

A trip into Eagleton seemed innocent enough. What Deputy Sheriff Michael Keane didn't expect was a jumper on the bridge of the Eagle River. Saving the jumper catapults Michael to hero status within the Hidden Springs community.  But saving this stranger may become one good deed Michael may live to regret.

A killer has made his presence known in Hidden Springs, taunting Michael, the sheriff's office and Hank Leland editor of the Gazette. As each victim gets closer to Michael personally it is obvious the killer has made Hidden Springs and Michael a target.  Can they stop the killer before he strikes again?

If you're looking for small town charm and mystery you've found it in in Murder Comes by Mail. This is the second book in the Hidden Springs Mystery series and it is every bit as entertaining as the first book Murder at the Courthouse.  This who-dunit will keep you guessing as to the killer's ultimate goal and wondering who will be next. If you haven't read the first book don't worry you can easily follow this book without scratching your head wondering what you are missing.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher Revell in exchange for my honest review.

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.
