Small towns should not have to deal with murder. Especially murders occurring to strangers on the steps of the courthouse. But it’s even worse when someone the town loves and respects is found dead. Is anyone safe?

I love a good mystery. One that keeps me turning the pages because I want to figure out whodunit before the author reveals the answer.

Murder at the Courthouse is just that sort of book.
