    Murder at the courthouse is the first book in the Hidden Spring Mystery series.

    When life as a cop in Columbus Ohio becomes to much, Michael Keane comes home to Hidden Springs and joins the police force knowing that the only exciting thing that will happen ticketing a jaywalker or a finding missing cow or two. But then a dead body turns up on the courthouse steps, and Michael and the town find their world turned upside down.

    The author does a wonderful job with the characters. She brings to life a whole host of hilarious people that really bring the story to life. But what I really enjoyed was the fact that Michael is not the top dog. He is a deputy, not the sheriff In fact he tries his best to stay out of the whole affair, but being a homegrown guy, the residents naturally gravitate to him with all their theories and their gossip.

    I love a good mystery, but the intense, suspenseful kind is not the only thing that makes a book good. This a light mystery, I would almost but it in the category of a cozy mystery with christianity woven through the plot.

    I would definitely recommend this book.

    The last half of the book was exciting and full of suspense but it started out very slowly. Deputy Sheriff Michael Keane was a strong protagonist. I won a copy of Murder at the Courthouse from One Writer's Journal blog. This is my honest opinion.

    Hidden Springs, Kentucky is a small, quiet town. Michael Keane has returned to his hometown to serve as deputy sheriff after several years as a police officer in a large city. He enjoys the slower pace until one day a body of a stranger is found on the steps of the courthouse. Though there is a sheriff, a chief of police, and various other law enforcement officers, the burden of solving the mystery falls to Michael. This becomes even harder when a local, much loved, citizen is also found murdered. I had previously read the second book in this series so was familiar with Michael and some of the other residents. Since this is the first, it gives a bit more background to better understand Michael and his motivations. The book has all the necessary elements for a very satisfactory cozy mystery. I enjoyed it very much and am currently reading the third book.

    This story is endurable through time, I can tell - it has levity at the right time - and then sensitivity in others - it also has a boundless amount of characters because it is in a small town and this author sure knew exactly how to use people who lived in a small town - I know - I use to live in one - you have the nosey bodies- the eccentrics - the helpers - the gossips - then you have the normal everyday people - and this is what the author did she got the small town down pat - for real - This story has so many twist and turns than a roller coaster at Busch Gardens new ride - Michael - the Sherriff has gotten news that there was a dead person on the stairs of the courthouse - someone they don't know and now the game is afoot - he does his deductions - now the fun of all of this is - the author from the very beginning grabs you right from out of the book and brings you in as one of his partners - you feel as if you are in the book - helping him find out who dun it - you are his Watson - and then .well - I can't tell you if - because it is a small town that the two of you could or couldn't figure out who dunnit. - so Watson - you need to get the book - Join your partner and figure out who dunnit. it is worth the work....have fun... I received a copy of this book to read and give an honest review
