Murder is No Accident by A H Gabhart
The old Chandler place should be empty. The magnificent Victorian mansion is for sale, even if its aged owner Miss Fonda doesn't realize it. But when real estate agent Geraldine Harper enters the house on a sunny October day, she's not alone. Minutes later, there is a body at the bottom of the steep steps leading to the tower room.
Deputy sheriff Michael Keane is called in. At first blush, it looks like the death was a tragic accident, but clues point to foul play. And when a second body is discovered, the race is on to find the culprit . . . before someone else dies.
If you like your small-town America sweet and quirky--with a dash of sinister--you'll love this latest whodunit from deft storyteller A. H. Gabhart.
Review: Hidden Springs reminds me of my hometown - a community so tight that you can't even skip a class in high-school without getting "caught" at least a half-dozen times before you reached the end of the road, and guaranteed your mother would know about it before you even got home. Hidden Springs is a town where everyone knows everyone and investigating murders can get challenging when everyone is someone's brother, sister, or great aunt. Filled with delightful small town quirkiness, this newest installment in "A Hidden Springs Mystery" series is sure to delight its readers.
Deputy sheriff Michael Keane is called in to yet another Hidden Spring's death. Fortunately, this one appears to be a tragic but innocent mistake. At least, that is what he'd like to think... but then a second body shows up and he is no longer content to close the book on the case. With romance on the brain, Michael fights to keep safe the two things he values most in his life: his lifelong friend Alexandria and his precious town of Hidden Springs. In the end though, is he going to have to choose one over the other?
This is yet another delightful addition to a fun, lighthearted series filled with memorable characters. I would certainly recommend all the books in this series.
