Murder Comes by Mail by A.H. Gabhart

murdercomesbymailMurder Comes by Mail by A.H. Gabhart was a great change of pace. I typically read historical (sometimes contemporary) romance, and this had that plus a murder mystery. It kept me on my toes, and I loved the plot.

The main character, Michael Keane, is a small-town deputy searching for a serial killer with the help of the local newspaper editor.

With the focus on the murders, the secondary character development suffered a bit, but I can easily get over that because the story was so enjoyable (is it weird to say you enjoyed a murder mystery?).

I’d recommend this book for anyone who loves small towns, mysteries, and great fiction. It’s a great summer read.

Excuse me while I go find the first book in the series . . .

4 stars—I liked it and will suggest it to those who might be interested.

I received a copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review. The opinions are my own and were not influenced by the publisher or author.

    Have you read the Chief Inspector Gamache series by Louise Penny? I was reminded of these while reading your review of this book. I’ve only read the first one (liked it but didn’t love it), but I’ve heard really good things about the later books. It’s a murder mystery series set in a small town in Canada, and from what I’ve read so far, is big on character motivation, and does a great job with setting and atmosphere.
