"Murder at the Courthouse," by A.H. Gabhart

"Murder at the Courthouse," by A.H. Gabhart

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.

I found this book a little slow to get going, but once it did, it was a page turner.  I didn't guess who did it until a way's through the book.  When it was revealed who did the murder it all made sense.  This is the first book in the "Hidden Springs Mystery," series and I am looking forward to reading the next one.

Michael's aunt is a great character, as is Michael.  I love the small town feel to this book and how everyone knows everyone and everything.  I could see why Michael came back to live in Hidden Springs.

Stars out of 5 : 4.5  Other than the slow start I think this book was great and one of the better ones written by this author.  Well worth the read; with enough mystery to keep you wanting more.
