Murder Comes by Mail by A. H. Gabhart

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

My Thoughts......
  I just love these books! Ann has a way of pulling you in and making you want to read page after page without putting it down. This book has all the pieces to a good mystery. Intrigue, suspense, even a little bit of checking things out over your shoulder, makes for a fantastic read. I loved this first book in the series and this one was no different.
 The book begins with our trusted deputy Michael (from book one) doing what he thinks is the right thing to do. He saves a man, but in doing so a string of events happen that look as if they could ruin not only his life but the lives of others around him. 
There were moments in this book where I was sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for what would happen next. With our favorite Mayberry-like characters back from book one and Ann's fantastic writing style, this book will most definitely be a favorite. I did however figure out the "bad guy" about half way through the book, but there was still a twist I didn't expect. The only negative I had was I wanted to know a little bit more about the bad guy. Why he did it and such.
Overall an awesome book and I can't wait to read the next in the series.
I received a copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review. A positive review was not required.
