Ann H. Gabhart in her new book, “Murder at the Courthouse bok cverMurder at the Courthouse” Book One in the A Hidden Springs Mystery series published by Revell gives us an adventure with Michael Keane.

From the Back Cover:   Welcome to Hidden Springs
732 731

Michael Keane’s stressful days as a Columbus police officer are done. He’s ready to relax into his new position as deputy sheriff in his sleepy hometown. Nothing ever happens in Hidden Springs, Kentucky–and that’s just fine with Michael.

Nothing, that is, until a dead body is discovered on the courthouse steps. As Michael works to solve the case, it seems that every nosy resident in town has a theory. When the sheriff insists Michael check out one of these harebrained theories, his surprising discovery sends him on a bewildering search for a mysterious killer that has him questioning everything he has ever believed about life in Hidden Springs.

Bringing with her a knack for creating settings you want to visit and an uncanny ability to bring characters to life, A. H. Gabhart pens a whodunit that will keep you guessing.

When you name something “Hidden Springs” what you are bound to turn up are things that people would like to remain “hidden”. This is a wonderful little town in Kentucky, which I am so looking forward to visiting especially after reading this book. The first murder isn’t hidden it is right out there in plain view on the courthouse steps. From there the investigation has to start digging deeper and the past gets involved. I am not going to give any of the mystery away just to say that Deputy Michael doesn’t get to rest for long as this is quite an investigation. I had no idea of who the murderer was until this person was revealed and that is saying something. Ms. Gabhart has written a wonderful story full of interesting characters that we come to know and love as we read through the book.  Ms. Gabhart does a great job of making us feel that we are there in “Hidden Springs” and living the events rather than just reading about them.  I am so thrilled that Ms. Gabhart has turned to writing mysteries. She is really very good at this and I am looking forward to the next mystery with Deputy Michael.
