Susan Whitfield. Sin Creek. London, TX: L&L Dreamspell, 2011.

When she’s called to investigate a murder on the UNC-Wilmington campus, Logan Hunter certainly doesn’t look the part of a tough and capable SBI Agent. Clad in high heels and a silk dress, she comes straight from her own bridal shower. The scene she finds couldn’t be more different than the genteel high tea honoring her impending marriage. Maeve Smoltz wasn’t only killed, she was torn apart. Perhaps more troubling is the evidence of heavy sexual abuse on her body, especially for a brand-new college freshman. Agent Hunter is determined to find some answers, but the ones she uncovers point to far more terrible deeds and only raise more questions. Married quickly in the middle of the investigation, she and her new husband, handsome fellow Agent Chase Reilly, have even more to lose as they work together to bring down the perpetrators of this and other heinous acts. Will their new marriage survive? Will they?

Inspired to write this next installment in the Logan Hunter Mystery Series as a way to raise awareness of the effect the porn industry has on impressionable, often monetarily needy young women trying to make their way through college, Susan Whitfield has written a gripping and sad novel that nonetheless has a hopeful ending. Due to the explicit nature of some material, this book is recommended for mature readers only.

Susan Whitfield. Hell Swamp. Spring, TX: L & L Dreamspell, 2009.

She was supposed to be taking a few days off to work on her wedding plans, but when the SBI is short-staffed, Agent Logan Hunter is called in to work a gruesome murder case. When she gets to the crime scene–a historic house in rural Ivanhoe, NC–both it and its evidence have been compromised, and she is told that she won’t be receiving any additional SBI help any time soon. It doesn’t take long to figure out that dead woman, an animal rights activist, had a lot of enemies in the surrounding community. As she searches for the killer, Logan questions local hunters, has a run in with a snake-handling congregation, and battles her own night terrors. This is the third book in the Logan Hunter Mystery series.
