What happens in the past stays in the past.
Dementia has Miss Fonda living as a time traveller. Sometimes she’s here, sometimes she’s then. When she finds the body of Geraldine Harper at the bottom of her steps, she’s transported to the past, to her sister’s death.
It was an accident then, and it was an accident now too… or is it?
When a second body shows up, it’s obvious that something caused Geraldine’s fall. But with all the new people in Hidden Springs, who was it? And when Alex comes to town… will Michael be able to handle her leaving again?
It 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.
The third Hidden Springs Mystery is here! One thing I definitely love about the Hidden Springs Series is its covers. 🙂 Cute, curious, and cat-y all at once.
The first thing I noticed when I opened it up was the A. H. Gabhart switched her POVs around. I really enjoyed it. I got to see a little through Maggie’s eyes, a lot through Michael’s, and then a little through Alex’s and Malinda’s.
Some of you might remember that I reviewed the second Hidden Springs Mystery. I went back and read it again. One thing that annoyed me in the last book was that their dialog got a bit redundant to me. Not in this book! The dialog was great and intriguing. I had a really good time reading though it (It took me two days–only because I started reading in the evening and I had to go to bed )
The plot line was great. I think it only helped it out to see things from Maggie’s view as well. (Who is Maggie? Read and find out!) Miss Fonda was also amazing. Without her, nothing would have been as complicated as it was. Nothing would have been brought up about Audrey, nothing would have been supicious until the second death, and the plot would have had a slow beginning. With Miss Fonda however…
The characters were awesome, as usual. Betty Jean is funny, as is Malinda. Alex was still… Alex. I’m not sure what to think about her actually. Michael was his usal self, eager to help, but with more layers than you’d expect at first glance. Miss Fonda introduced an interesting new character. It was cool the way she added a new aspect to the story that certainly wouldn’t be there without her.
I was slightly hesitant about requesting this book. I wasn’t thrilled with the last book, but I am so glad I did! I enjoyed this book thoroughly. If you get a chance, definitely pick it up. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did. 😀
