Murder Come by Mail--A.H.Gabhart
A little about the book (from the back cover) . . .
Doing a good deed never felt so bad
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.
And I thought . . .
it was a great read. A little humor (quirky townsfolk), mystery and just a tab bit of romance. The story line was fast paced and interesting full of twists and turns. I enjoyed the characters and getting to know them.
Although this is the 2nd book in the series I didn't feel confused.
I would love to read book 1. I enjoyed this book.
Even though it is a murder who done it I didn't get a feeling of violence or too much graphic explanations. (the murderer mails photo's of his victims) It is violent in that the murder count ads up. I actually lost track 3 or 4? And of course an attempt at the end.
With that said this was a clean book. No language or bedroom scenes.
Murder Comes In The Mail is categorized as a fiction mystery book and is published by Revell which publishs Christian fiction.
The story begins with Michael the main character driving a bus load of senior ladies from his church to a play.
As Michael struggles with the search for the villain he struggles with just how to handle God's role in all the evil surrounding him
The story line weaves a faith aspect into the story without being overly 'preachie'. Making this book enjoyable for any adult audience. Because of the content I would caution young readers.
The author did an amazing job of weaving the sub characters into the plot making this reader definitely want to visit Hidden Springs
I give this book a 5 stars.
I received a complimentary copy of Murder Comes By Mail from Revell Books in exchange for my honest review.
