Murder is No Accident By Ann Gabhart




Young Maggie Greene may be trespassing in the old, empty Victorian mansion on a quiet street in Hidden Springs, but all she wants is some private time in the magnificent tower room to write her stories. Certain she'll be in trouble if caught, she hides when a realtor shows up. But someone else is in the house too, someone even more worried about getting caught. When Maggie finds the realtor's body at the bottom of a flight of stairs and the other person gone, Deputy Sheriff Michael Keane is called in. He assumes the realtor's death is a tragic accident--until a second person is found dead in the house. When Maggie is threatened, Michael must catch the murderer before anyone else dies.

Cozy mystery fans will love this third installment in The Hidden Springs Mysteries series from an author who knows how to make small-town America sweet, sentimental--and a little sinister.

I was so excited to go back to Hidden Springs. Gabhart writes mysteries that are unpredictable. You are guessing until the very end.
Unlike most writers she has you on the edge of your seat. The characters are likeable and so real.
Only thing I can say about this third book in the Hidden Springs mystery series is  I did not want it to end.
This is a three book series and you should read all three books in order the characters go from one book to the other.
This was such a treat I can't wait to what Gabhart comes up with next. 
I gave this book 5 stars. I HIGHLY recommend the whole series.
I received  this book from the author for review. A favorable was not required and all views expressed are my own.

  9. Thanks for the great review, Mary. I don't always comment on reviews because sometimes I think it might make the reviewer uncomfortable. Do you think that's true? For you or other reviewers you know? But some of the comments here were so nice, I just had to respond. Love where Amanda says she loves fishing with Mike. And it's fun that Willard, Emma and Natalie were eager to make a return visit to Hidden Springs for mystery 3. And Skylar was so nice to suggest re-reading my stories. That's a big compliment. Thank you, Skylar. Also fun that so many of your readers were ready to take a chance on my book if you gave it 5 stars. So thank you for that. I enjoy meeting new readers.

  13. I have "Murder Comes by Mail" on my bookshelf and I'd love to add this one to my collection. My husband read the first two books and loved them. He's a huge mystery/cozy mystery fan :-) Thanks for the excellent review Mary!
