Product Description

Murder Comes by Mail #2,  in the Hidden Springs Mystery Series by A. H. Gabhart

Deputy Sheriff Michael Keane wasn’t enjoying being the hero.  The bridge was too high and the water too muddy.  But he managed to grab the man just in time.  The man, who had obviously given him a fake name, kept insisting that Michael should push him instead of save him.  And now the Deputy wondered if the man might be in serious trouble, might even be a murderer.

Publisher's Description

A Cozy Mystery Complete with a Small Town Full of Charming, Quirky Characters

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.

Readers will love racing along with Deputy Sheriff Keane as the clock ticks in this page-turning mystery.

    MURDER COMES BY MAIL is the second book in The Hidden Springs Mysteries series but it easily stands alone. Written in the man's point of view, it is different than most cozy mysteries, but Oh, I love Michael. I do. I fell in love with him in book one Murder at the Court House and fell deeper in love with him in MURDER COMES BY MAIL.

    Michael is a kind, considerate soul, willing to go above and beyond for his aunt, so on his day off, when he'd much rather be fishing, he agreed to take the church ladies to a play thats sounded rather questionable and even had the ladies arguing. When he got to the bridge leading out of town, there was a man getting ready to jump. Maybe. Actually, the man seemed rather indecisive until the photographers arrived and then he was bound and determined to jump, but Michael grabbed him and saved his life.

    The man thanks him by saying "You'll wish you let me jump..." and sure enough, within days the murders start, pictures of dead females arriving at the sheriff's office, or at the newspaper, or hand delivered to the editor's daughter.... The town is panicking, and Michael is beginning to regret saving the man... Except nothing seems to fit!

    Since most of the murders happen in another town, another sheriff's department is handling the investigation, and Michael tries to help them out, but the doctor who treated the jumper keeps calling Michael wanting to talk. He won't talk to the sheriff's office handling the case. And that doctor is creepy! This is not a book you want to read at bedtime. It will keep you awake nights. But oh, I do love Michael, and cannot wait for A H Gabhart's next cozy mystery with Michael. Hopefully soon!

    I'd read several of Ann Gabhart's books and really liked them, so when I saw her new mystery series (writing as A.H. Gabhart), I was eager to read it. MURDER COMES BY MAIL is the second in the series but the first I've read. I was expecting the setting to be a small town with somewhat quirky characters and I was not disappointed. What kind of surprised me was the complexity of the mystery. It almost had a psychological thriller aspect to it. The main character, Michael, the deputy sheriff, saves a man from jumping off a bridge and is thrust into the unwanted role of hero. It is also the beginning of his involvement (also unwanted) in some bizarre murders. The murderer photographs his female victims and sends the photos to Michael. The case is being investigated by a police detective from the closest city, Eagleton. Michael would like to leave it to Det. Whitt, but things keep happening to draw him into the case, even being accused of the murders. If you are looking for a good mystery that isn't easy to solve, read MURDER COMES BY MAIL.

    Murder Comes by Mail brings us back to Hidden Springs and all of its quirky yet lovable characters. Since we last visited in Murder at the Courthouse life has gone on with the same daily happenings that the citizens have come to expect.

    When we catch up with them Deputy Sheriff Michael Keane is doing his christian duty by transporting the Senior Adult Ladies Sunday School Class from First Baptist over to Eagleton to see a play. Michael is less than thrilled but of course when his Aunt Lindy makes a request it is next to impossible to turn it down.

    The trip is hot but uneventful. That is until they are about to cross the bridge. As they approach the bridge Michael spots a man that is obviously about to jump and take his life. Michael stops the bus and ultimately pulls the man from the ledge. Instead of being grateful the man leaves Michael with a parting comment. "You'll wish you'd pushed me."

    As the mystery deepens and unfurls cryptic letters begin to arrive in Hidden Springs. Why is this happening? Who was the mysterious jumper? Even though the jurisdiction for the incident is in Eagleton more and more of the clues keep arriving in Hidden Springs.

    The first book in the series read like a cozy mystery. This installment has more of a psychological thriller feel. I enjoyed the journey as the mystery is solved. I was led back and forth trying to figure out who exactly was behind everything. In the end it was a big surprise even though breadcrumbs of clues were left all along the path.

    I'm really liking Ann Gabhart's writing in this genre. I've come to love her other novels so it is a great delight to have another type of storytelling to be entertained with. If you enjoy a cozy mystery that is clean but has depth you should give this series a try.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

    Quick review:

    A one time read with interesting characters, a light touch of romance, and an ever-changing plot. If you see it in the library, don't pass it by! Will make a nice winter read.

    What I liked about the book:

    The characters look simple in the beginning. But they aren't. The layers keep peeling back more and more, finally giving realistic and personable characters.

    I liked the plot as well. One piece after another, it kept you on your toes. The murder, what you think, all of it will end up shattered. I don't know about you, but I love that in a mystery book.

    What I didn't like about the book:

    The dialog. In all honesty, the dialog bored me towards the end. It got a little repetitive, a little dull. Not enough to make me put down the book at all, but enough to disappoint me.

    Michael and Alexandria disappointed me a bit too. Their romance was... strained and unbelievable. They kept having the same problems that the book informs you they've had their entire adult lives. And yet they seemed too entwined to ever fully let go and too different to ever fully join together.

    Who I would recommend this to:

    Anyone who wants an ever changing mystery plot. Parents, there is death and murder, so use discretion before letting your younger children read. If you don't like romance, but want an adult mystery, this book will be fine. Michael and Alex are such a small part of the overall story...

    Rating:

    3 out of 5 stars.
