Murder at the Courthouse by Meghan CarverTitle: Murder at the Courthouse

Series: Grace Pointe Cozy Mystery #1

Author: Meghan Carver

Genre: Cozy Mystery

Release Date: October 28, 2019

The first book in the Grace Pointe Cozy Mystery Series!

“Fiction is a waste of time.”

The heated comment made by a church library ministry team member shocks MacKenzie Baker, but it quickly becomes the least of her worries.

MacKenzie Baker is an impetuous, eavesdropping small-town librarian who lives in the apartment above the parsonage garage and refuses to be defined as the pastor’s single sister. She thought she was happy for years re-shelving books and helping patrons find their next great read, but as she turns forty, she suddenly struggles to figure out what more to do with her life. Solving murders in her small town of Grace Pointe wasn’t a part of her plan…until she and her brother find a local judge who had come to Pastor Baker for counseling murdered in his chambers, hit over the head with a massive volume of the Indiana Code.

Now, to clear the name of a family friend, she begins to work with the handsome criminal justice professor Ian Canter. Even though the detective with the chocolate brown eyes tells her to stick with making casseroles for the church pitch-in, she soon discovers the Judge’s scheming wife, his rebellious teen daughter, a network of lawyers in Grace Point who were disgruntled with the Judge, and even secrets that lurk among the library ministry team. But with the help of her new kitten Mr. Darcy, her best friend Callie, and her always-pastoring brother, MacKenzie debates the pros and cons of attending law school mid-life while she searches out a killer.

Welcome to Grace Pointe… where most of the people are friendly, the church is to die for, and the sleuthing is as strong as the coffee.


Sometimes you just have to cozy up to a fun and interesting cozy book. And Meghan Carver’s Murder at the Courthouse is just the book you need. Small town librarian MacKenzie Baker loves in an appartment above the parsonage, which happens to be her brother’s place. Mackenzie is one of those people that knows everyone and their business. Her life is about to change when a murder happens in Grace Point and MacKenzie decides to do a little sleuthing to help solve the mystery.

I really enjoyed the cast of characters that brings this book together. And I just adore Mr. Darcy, the kitten. Each character brings their own flavor to the mixture that makes up this small town. The story is very well written, and kept my attention well. Until I finished the book, there was this anticipation to know who killed the judge. Murder at the Courthouse is everything you want in a nice warm cozy mystery. And I found a little humor along with all of the sleuthing, which was added fun and enjoyment.  I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a good clean book to read.
