About this Book

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.

Journey again to Hidden Springs, a small-town with an old, empty Victorian mansion on a quiet street that becomes the place of murder in Murder is No Accident by A.H. Gabhart.

I almost passed up on this book because I didn’t enjoy the previous one in the series, but I decided to give it a try and I’m glad I did. I liked the cover of the book and the way it painted the picture of the mystery in my mind. The concept of the murder right below the stairs made for a interesting plot line and one that’s believable. This made the police think the death of the realtor was an accident.

I picked up this book for the mystery aspect of the story. While there was some romance in this book, it didn’t do that much for me. I know it was necessary to have something else beyond just solving the mystery, but the mystery was my main interest.

Overall, this was a good book. There were a number of characters that gave the small-town America feel. While this book didn’t make my must read list, it did give me a cozy mystery to read.
