Broken Bonds

by

I love to set my suspense novels in American small towns. I’ve used Amish locations, and my latest Cold Creek trilogy is set on the edge of Appalachia. One big reason is that, in rural areas, the enemy is often “us.” Chances are the kidnapper (as in Shattered Secrets) or murderer (like in Broken Bonds) is someone the heroine knows, and that brings in treachery and betrayal. Impersonal crimes are one thing, but a crime by someone known and trusted—tragic and doubly suspenseful. To read the full article and to enter to win a copy CLICK HERE
