Murder At the Courthouse by A. H. Gabhart

After a few years as a police officer in Chicago, Michael Keane has no trouble relaxing into the far less stressful job of deputy sheriff in his small hometown. After all, nothing ever happens in Hidden Springs, Kentucky. Nothing, that is, until a dead body is discovered on the courthouse steps. Everyone in town is a little uneasy. Still, no one is terribly worried--after all the man was a stranger--until one of their own is murdered right on Main Street.

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 readers guessing.

My Thoughts
Michael Keane is just your average small town sheriff's deputy, until the day the town gossip finds a dead body on the steps of the courthouse. Will Michael be able to figure out who the killer is?

This book is a fast paced, keep you reading kind of book. It starts out right in the middle of everything and never quits. I enjoyed each character in the book. From the nosey Ms. Willadean to the quirky deputy Lester, each character made the book a better read. Almost like reading about a murder in Mayberry. I could not believe how well the who done it part of the book was done. I tried and tried to figure out who the killer was but I never could get it. Ann did a fabulous job of keeping me on my toes, always second guessing until the very end. There are secrets and surprises around every turn of the page.
Ann is a fantastic writer and I can't wait to read the next book in the series. You won't be disappointed when you read this book. It is full of mystery, suspense, and humor, with a little bit of thrill and romance mixed in.
If you like mysteries this is definitely the book for you. Grab your copy today!
