I was hooked on this one from the get-go. Small town? That's where I live. Seriously, it was almost like reading a story from my own town. The characters were friendly, familiar, full of life, love, and hidden secrets. You know the sweat tea on the porch swing, chatting with friends, summer evening walks, type stuff.
Michael moved away from Hidden Springs to become a big city cop. But, it wasn't the life for him. After seeing too much big city crime, he returned to Hidden Springs. All he wanted was simple life, safe and easy. But the unexpected never fails to happen. Someone ends up dead on the courthouse steps. And for the life of him, Michael is having a hard time finding out who is responsible. It could be any number of people, but surely not someone he knows. Murder just doesn't happen in Hidden Springs.
People are not always what they seem. And that is quite a scary thought. Ann kept me wondering just about the entire book. In the end, it was the person I suspected, but it certainly was not easy to figure out. She kept me hopping from one person to the next, second guessing myself.
Actually, to be honest, I even shed a few tears at the end. Because even though this was just a novel, It felt real. Maybe it's just because I am a small town girl. Every one knows everyone. We have people just like the characters in the book. You know the busybody who knows everyone, and everyone's business. The barber across the street, who listens to everyone's stories. The troubled teen, who needs to be loved. The lawyer, who handles those small town cases... none of them serious by the way. By the end of the book, you will feel like you know the Hidden Springs people and belong there. I know I did. I can't wait to read the next Hidden Springs Book. In the mean time, don't miss out on this one!
I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
