Returning to Hidden Springs is a cosy feeling. Settling in with Michael and the characters of Keane is both quirky and interesting. I had my suspects eyed out earlier than usual in this one but still, the journey was engaging and the romance element added to the experience! I love the way Christian principles are weaved into the fabric of the story. I give it an en-JOY-ment level of 4 out of 5.
Sometimes that was the hardest thing to accept. The Lord’s timing.
From the back cover:
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.
