Gabhart, A.H. Murder at the Courthouse: A Hidden Springs Mystery. Grand Rapids, MI: Revell publishing. 2015.
With a population of 732, Hidden Springs is a sleepy, quaint, quiet little town snuggled in Kentucky. As the new deputy sheriff in this cozy town, Sheriff Micheal Keane is ready to relax and enjoy life…that is until the population drops to 731 after a man, apparently murdered, is found on the front steps of the courthouse. As the community members of Hidden Springs share their unique, sometimes absurd, speculations on the murder, Micheal is now wondering just what prompted him to take this job…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Sometimes in the midst of all the more serious, deeper, emotional books I read, I need a lighter, cozier, more fun book to read…and I found it. Murder at the Courthouse is well written and skims along in an easy manner yet still provides twists and turns in a “who-dun-it” novel. As the first story in the Hidden Springs Mystery series, I look forward to continuing with the main character while getting to know others too. Fitting the intended genre for me, this book turned out to be a delight.
