Women Sleuths/Romantic Suspense/Mystery Romance



Women are being kidnapped in the North Georgia Mountain community of Hawk’s Peak. Dispatch operator Maddie Quinn receives the calls. The pattern is similar to killings that took place in other places she’s lived. Is the killer purposefully targeting those close to her? Is she the ultimate target?
Detective Sam Morris is determined to help her find the killer before he can kill again.





A captivating read that had me turning the pages. Lots of suspense and had me changing my mind a few times on who was the killer. Liked the small-town feel, the plot, and the characters. Deadly autumn Winds is part of a series and I enjoyed seeing some previous characters, but is read as a standalone.
