      Behind every door there is a secret, a lie, a cover-up something that stays in the shadows until forced into the sunlight.Sheriff Hick Blackburn is learning how narrow-minded his town's people really are. The murdered body of the school's librarian is found in a ditch. Suspicion immediately is cast toward the two young men who found the body. Hick is finding that his friends, even his family are keeping things from him as he investigates. And not everyone is who he thinks they are.Hick is a fas [...]

      This is now the second novel I have read by Cynthia A. Graham set in and around Cherokee Crossing, Arkansas and featuring Hick Blackburn as the local sheriff.As with the first book I love the sense of time and place. The language and simple way of life that is represented. The author captures the very essence of the community and its people; her characters are rich and have a depth and her use of setting and location lifts the novel into the status of modern literature worth reading for its cade [...]

      Fact: good things, very good things, can come from small publishers. I read both of the Sheriff Hick southern mystery novels in the stretch of a few days. Cynthia Graham's writing, plotting, and ability to create a fully realized characters and settings more than holds its own alongside some of my favorite and more well-known mystery writers. Discovered at Midwest Book Awards Gala. Two notes: I am glad that I read Beneath Still Waters and Behind Every Door in order as I got a sense of Maggie as [...]

      Thank you Netgalley for the copy in exchange for an honest review!Behind Every Door follows Sheriff Hick Blackburn and his quest to solve not only a recent murder, but also one from 14 years ago that could potentially shape his current case. When a woman whom the town loved is found murdered, everyone is sent into a tailspin. Certain members of the town blame the Delaney boys, since their father was convicted and executed for the murder of a teenager years prior. But Hick doesn't buy it. And he [...]

      'What I particularly enjoy is how Ms Graham uses the brooding weather to reflect the growing tension at Cherokee Crossing. On the one side, a large number of people have already decided who is guilty of the murder and want the sheriff to act – before they do so themselves. On the other side, those who are not so quick to judge urge caution – albeit that this is a dwindling minority. And all the while, one storm after another rolls in, making night out of day, drenching the town and the surro [...]

      I received this book in a giveaway. It was an enjoyable quick read, the main characters were compelling, but some of the supporting cast seemed very one-dimensional. Particularly the “bad guys”- either they were not developed as completely as I’d like, or there wasn’t a lot of background to really flesh them out. It was such a short book that more could have been added to really make it a provocative read.

      This is the second of Cynthia A. Graham's mystery books set in Cherokee Crossing, Arkansas in the years after WWII. I finished the first, "Beneath Still Waters" and reviewed it for a book tour and liked it so much that I pushed aside my other TBRs to read this one--which I received as a free ARC e-book from NetGalley. 'Behind Every Door' picks up a couple of years after 'Beneath Still Waters' and (very slight spoilers) Andrew Jackson Blackburn (Hick) is still sheriff and now married to Maggie an [...]

      Behind Every Door is Cynthia A. Graham’s exceptional sequel mystery to Beneath Still Waters. In this book, the discovery of a mutilated corpse plunges Sheriff Hick Blackburn into solving the gruesome murder of the sweet, middle-aged school secretary who worked for his father. Eventually Hick makes connections between this grizzly case and the fourteen-year-old unsolved murder of a minister’s only teen-aged daughter. Graham peels into the heart of each character, into their motivation, like [...]

      Behind Every Door is another twist in the mystery of who killed Gladys Kestrel, who was the high school secretary for 30 years, in the small town of Cherokee Crossing, Arkansas. Andrew Jackson “Hick” Blackburn is the sheriff in charge of solving the murder of this beloved member of the community. What’s not to love with a character named Hick (nah, it’s short for Hickory) and a cemetery named Wanderlust. It’s refreshing to read a story where the characters are regular people with real [...]

      I had mixed feelings starting this book. I enjoyed "Beneath Still Waters" and so was excited and nervous. The story, although a mystery, is really more of a story of people's characters and motives. She explores the mix of good and evil in people with compassion; but also a serious call for us to be our better selves. Ms. Graham writes with prose that is really poetic and I am growing attached to Cherokee Crossing and its people. I'm looking forward to another trip! Despite the serious subjects [...]

      First I would like to thank NetGalley, the author and the publisher for my advanced copy.This was a lovely little gem that was a quick but solid read. The characters were believable and well thought out and the detail really put you into each scene. I really appreciate the extra effort the author put into discussing the inequality of the era by keeping it simple, she stayed true to the times. If you're looking for a quick enjoyable read with a few nice twist and turns this book is for you!

      I couldn't put this book down. The descriptions of the places and people are so detailed and evocative that I could feel the heat, smell the smells, see and hear the sounds and felt like I knew the people. As a mystery, I had my suspicions, but was surprised at who committed the crime. I look forward to reading more of Graham's work.

      I wanted to read this mystery by local St. Louis author Cynthia A. Graham. There were so many characters, however, that I started keeping a running list. The murderer was a well-kept secret throughout most of the bookI did not suspect the culprit until the end of the story. Very sad circumstances for the poverty-stricken characters in the story.

    14. Chantel DaCosta on said:

      I got this book from Net Galley in exchange for my review. 3 stars. or 2.8 The mystery was OK but wanted more twists and turns. In a small turn where the list of suspects was already small to begin and dwindling it was hard to figure out "who-dunnit"

    15. Trina on said:

      I received this arc from Netgalley. I really enjoyed reading this book. An exciting whodunit that kept my attention throughout. I definitely recommend this one. I also will be looking for other books by this author.

      I love when you can't predict the ending in a story. This is just such a book. Great read!

      Behind Every Door is a good, short mystery. I look forward to more by this author. Four stars
