I Chronicles 29:11 "Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all."

Book Review: Murder is No Accident

Murder is No Accident is a book by A.H. Gabhart, set in the town of Hidden Springs. There are some quirky characters around, but no one too weird to turn you off reading or to annoy you.

I really liked this book! Murder in a small town is never easy to hide, but the author does a good job of keeping you guessing. I liked the main characters, and the way they interacted with each other. I had not read previous books in the series, so I was unfamiliar with the back story of Michael and his love interest, but it didn't detract from this book. Nothing was so in-depth between them that you couldn't read between the lines and see where they were at now. This can definitely stand on its own as a mystery novel.

I felt bad for Miss Fonda. When elderly people get Dementia or Alzheimer's, it is so hard for everyone, but most of all the person who is suffering from it. And there are always those who will try to take advantage. I thought it was sweet the way the people in town looked after her, and knew where to find her if she wasn't where she was supposed to be.

I also felt sorry for Maggie, but was happy to see she was a responsible young lady who was able to eventually share a secret when it became unsafe for those around her. Being the daughter of a person with any kind of substance abuse problem cannot be easy. The reality is, there are a lot of families like Maggie's out there. It's good to wrap our minds around their needs and how we might be able to step in and help.

I would definitely go back and read the previous books in the series, and will keep an eye out for future books from this author. Very enjoyable read!
