One body may be an accident. A second body means murder. The old Chandler place should be empty. The magnificent Victorian mansion is for sale, even if its aged owner Miss Fonda doesn't realize it. But when real estate agent Geraldine Harper enters the house on a sunny October day, she's not alone. Minutes later, there is a body at the bottom of the steep steps leading to the tower room.
Deputy sheriff Michael Keane is called in. At first blush, it looks like the death was a tragic accident, but clues point to foul play. And when a second body is discovered, the race is on to find the culprit . . . before someone else dies.
If you like your small-town America sweet and quirky--with a dash of sinister--you'll love this latest whodunit from deft storyteller A. H. Gabhart.

My thoughts: First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, MURDER IS NO ACCIDENT is the third book in Ms. Gabhart's Hidden Springs Mystery series. I hope there will be more. I dearly love Michael.
A house shrouded in mystery. Deaths ranging from the past to present. A congressman. An antique dealer. A murder writer. And a tower room where a young teen likes to daydream. Is the past murder tied in with the present? Or are the deaths unfortunate accidents? When another man is found dead, questions are raised. And Michael doesn't have a clue. Just a romance that seems to be dying a slow, agonizing death. I thought I had who-dun-it figured out. But then my suspect turned up dead. I couldn't sleep. I made a list of possible suspects, but couldn't quite put my finger on it... You know a writer is good when a reader goes to that much work! I absolutely love this series. If you like cozy mysteries, you'll want to read MURDER IS NO ACCIDENT. You can read it as a stand-alone, but you will want to read Murder on the Courthouse and Murder Comes by Mail.
