Fall and the Suspense Writer!

by Debby Giusti

The leaves are turning colors and the air is crisp and cool, at least in Georgia.  After the hot days of summer, the fall offers a refreshing change I always enjoy.  It also provides a great season in which to set a suspense story. 

I'm working on book two of my new Military Investigations Series entitled, THE CAPTAIN'S MISSION.  Set in Georgia, the story takes place in the fall when cool nights and warm days are the norm.   

The heroine sets out to investigate a military training mission and finds her life turned upside down...literally.  The hero is there to save her time and again, despite inner warnings that the female Criminal Investigation Division Special Agent will complicate his life.  Bottom line, she spells trouble. 

Actually she spells love interest, but this fall, he's not seeing things as he should.  Instead, he's seeing Fort Rickman and the surrounding area through his own trouble past. 

An isolated farmhouse, a snare trap big enough to catch human prey and an angry mob betting on a fight to the death signal excitment for the writer and reader alike.

What are you doing now that the days are cool and the leaves are awash in color?

It's fall? LOL Living in Florida the seasons don't change all that much. It's still in the 80's here. But, it is a bit cooler and less humid, so we spend more time outside taking walks and sitting on the patio.

Hi Susan,
We had a big drop in temperature. It went from the 80s down to the 50s, which was drastic. I was bundled up in sweaters, then today warmed up in the late afternoon and I was shedding clothes! But the leaves are turning and falling and are so beautiful!

Come north to Atlanta! :)

Ah, my first murder mystery was set in fall. Looking at all the red leaves sends the imagination spinning.

Your book sounds wonderful, Debby! I can't wait to read it.
