Murder Comes by Mail by: Ann H. Gabhart

Doing a good deed never felt so bad

Cover ArtDeputy 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.

My Take:
Loved this book! Ann has such a creative style with humor and and mystery all wrapped up together. She is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. Hidden Springs reminds me of my small town, where everyone pretty much knows everyone, or for those of you who can't relate - think Andy Griffith and Mayberry.  Could something bad really happen there? Well.. evil lurks everywhere and Hidden Springs is no exception.

Just as Michael, the small town deputy, thinks he has recuperated from the last murder Hidden Springs had (read about it in book one) and life seems to be getting down to normal, the unexpected happens. As he is taking the town's senior ladies to a play, they spot a man getting ready to jump off the bridge. Michael does what anyone would do - he saves him. The man's last words before being taken to the hospital have Michael puzzled and troubled. Would he really regret saving a man's life? Maybe so... But you must read the book to find out what happens. 

Other town characters you will like are: Michael's Aunt Lindy who has been teaching school for years; Alex, the girl he loves, but does she love him back? Hank the newspaper man, who has a love for taking pictures of all the happenings, but in this book, even Hank struggles with the news in the making. Ann combines suspense, fear, humor, family and so much more in this amazing story that will keep you turning pages until the end! This book is a stand alone, but I would highly recommend reading book one in the series also. And I am eagerly awaiting the release of the next book in the series.

I received a copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not asked to give a positive review.
