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.

Gabhart, she is the bestselling author of many novels, including Angel Sister, Small Town Girl, and Love Comes Home, and several popular Shaker novels such as The Outsider, The Believer, and The Innocent. Ann grew up in a small rural town in Kentucky much like Hidden Springs. She and her husband still live on a farm near that same Kentucky town. Learn more at


I loved the first cozy mystery in this series, Murder at the Courthouse and this one is even better. Murder Comes by Mail teems with hold-your-breath suspense and is impossible to put down. Hidden Springs is a charming town with a bevy of delightful and somewhat eccentric characters, and their interactions ring true to their personalities. I particularly enjoyed Gabhart's portrayal of Michael and his interactions with Detective Whitt from neighboring Eagleton, as Michael held his ground against Whitt's derision and animosity. A. H. Gabhart has created a compelling story that kept me up far too late--and then kept me awake as I listened for creaks and distant footfalls! Read it with the lights on, but don't miss this gripping novel!
