Welcome to Hidden Springs
732 731

Michael Keane’s stressful days as a Columbus police officer are done. He’s ready to relax into his new position as deputy sheriff in his sleepy hometown. Nothing ever happens in Hidden Springs, Kentucky–and that’s just fine with Michael.

Nothing, that is, until a dead body is discovered on the courthouse steps. As Michael works to solve the case, it seems that every nosy resident in town has a theory. When the sheriff insists Michael check out one of these harebrained theories, his surprising discovery sends him on a bewildering search for a mysterious killer that has him questioning everything he has ever believed about life in Hidden Springs.

Bringing with her a knack for creating settings you want to visit and an uncanny ability to bring characters to life, A. H. Gabhart pens a whodunit that will keep you guessing.

A. H. Gabhart is Ann H. Gabhart, bestselling author of many novels, including Angel Sister, Small Town Girl, and Love Comes Home, and several popular Shaker novels such as The Outsider, The Believer, and The Innocent. Ann grew up in a small rural town in Kentucky much like Hidden Springs, but she is happy to report nobody was ever murdered on her hometown’s courthouse steps. Ann and her husband still live on a farm near that same little town in Kentucky. Learn more at


My thoughts:

Readers of Ann H. Gabhart will be pleasantly pleased with this new release that is very different, yet in many ways the same, as her other books.

True to Ann’s writing she creates a small town that you will easily adore. So many interesting characters with a lot of personality.

I love that she is tackling a new genre and bringing her unique voice to a mystery.

Michael is a wonderful character. I enjoyed his point of view as we uncover the mystery of the murder. As stated earlier there are many other characters that will make you smile and roll your eyes.

If you enjoy Ann’s writing I think you will want to give this book a try.
