Murder at the Courthouse by Ann H. Gabhart (A Hidden Springs Mystery)

Welcome to Hidden Springs, Kentucky. The population just dropped by one. It't not like they had that many people to give either. Now they have 731! Panic almost ensued as the town busy-body Miss Wiladean Dearmon finds the body of a man who refuses to move off the court house top steps. Well, he can't move, he happens to have been murdered!

Micheal Keane has left the big city to come to this small quite town. All of the sudden, it isn't so quite anymore! Now he has to solve this murder, deal with a tiny town in shock that a murderer could be there, living there, even one of them! Sure it is a small town, but it doesn't lack in characters or interest at all. A few other mysteries are involved as well as the over all who-done-it.

I did figure it out in advance, but I still enjoyed this book, thoroughly. My copy came from Revell in exchange for my honest review and nothing else.

Welcome to Hidden Springs
732 --- 731

Michael Keane's stressful days as a Columbus police officer are done. He's ready to relax into his new position as deputy sheriff in his sleepy hometown. Nothing ever happens in Hidden Springs, Kentucky--and that's just fine with Michael.

Nothing, that is, until a dead body is discovered on the courthouse steps. As Michael works to solve the case, it seems that every nosy resident in town has a theory. When the sheriff insists Michael check out one of these harebrained theories, his surprising discovery sends him on a bewildering search for a mysterious killer that has him questioning everything he has ever believed about life in Hidden Springs.

Bringing with her a knack for creating settings you want to visit and an uncanny ability to bring characters to life, A. H. Gabhart pens a whodunit that will keep you guessing.

A. H. Gabhart is Ann H. Gabhart, bestselling author of many novels, including Angel SisterSmall Town Girl, andLove Comes Home, and several popular Shaker novels such as The OutsiderThe Believer, and The Innocent. Ann grew up in a small rural town in Kentucky much like Hidden Springs, but she is happy to report nobody was ever murdered on her hometown's courthouse steps. Ann and her husband still live on a farm near that same little town in Kentucky. Learn more at www.annhgabhart.com.
