I’ve enjoyed several of Ann Gabhart’s other novels, so when I had a chance to read her new mystery, I jumped on it. And I wasn’t disappointed! Although I don’t read many mysteries, A.H. Gabhart (as she displays her name for her mystery line) did a wonderful job of pulling me into the story.
Michael Keane left the big city police department he worked for. He returned to his sleepy little hometown as their deputy sheriff. He expected to rest and relax, to enjoy the slower pace of life. He didn’t expect to find a body on the steps of the courthouse. Amid a cast of colorful local characters, Michael finds more truth than he expects – or wants – to find.
I loved the characters in this story. They are diverse and interesting and, if you grew up in a small town, you’ll be able to put faces on them. There will be a book two … and I will read it!
