Book Review “Murder is No Accident” by A. H. Gabhart

Big Mystery in a Small Town

Three kids, a creepy Victorian mansion, along with a body—and it is the second body to be found in that house in less than a week!  How could this be happening in the normally quiet, small southern town of Hidden Springs?  Deputy sheriff Michael Keane is wondering that as he investigates the bodies that keep showing up in the Chandler mansion.

The first death seemed like an accident, but it parallels the death of Audrey Chandler Carlson that took place decades earlier.  Is that just an unhappy coincidence, or is the current one actually murder?  Should the past one be re-opened and investigated again?

Miss Fonda, Audrey’s sister, says it was actually murder, but she suffers from dementia. Teenager Maggie Greene might be the key, but she isn’t talking because someone has scared her to keep her silent.

While Michael has his hands full with the murder investigation, Alex his childhood sweetheart, is in town.  He thinks he is ready to take their relationship to the next level—marriage.  But Alex has it made it clear she doesn’t want the small town life.  She is a successful lawyer in the big city, and loves it.  Lately she has pulled back from him making a wide gulf between them.  Will Michael be able to bridge that if he admits he loves her, and wants an official relationship with her?

Murder is No Accident is the third installment in A Hidden Springs Mystery Series, but this story stands alone.  This is a clean mystery told from a Christian point of view.  There are enough twists and turns to keep you wondering who did it, and keep you turning the page until you discover the guilty party.  A lovely calico cat named Miss Marble makes her way into the story as well!  I recommend this 5-star book to fans of mysteries or Christian fiction.
