Susan Sleeman

I have known Susan for several years. We both write for Love Inspired Suspense. Her books are terrific and if I had a say, I would pick the Multnomah Falls as a setting for a book. Wait, the ocean is beautiful too and so is the Painted Hills. How about all three setting in one book. I’d like to welcome Susan Sleeman to my blog.

The Top THREE Reasons Why Oregon is the Perfect Setting for Romantic Suspense

People often ask me why I set all of my books in Oregon. Since I write romantic suspense, I need settings that can be intense, deadly, and dramatic—settings that lend themselves to unique predicaments with equally unique rescues of the story’s characters. Oregon has so many dramatic settings all within a day’s drive and today I’ll highlight three of them.

oregon falls1. Oregon has forty-eight named mountain ranges with heavy snow in the winter and amazing falls all year round. I feature a dramatic rescue at Multnomah Falls in The Christmas Witness book 3 of my Morgan Brothers series. Can’t you just see the suspense a rescue on a bridge like this would entail?

Oregon Coast2. Oregon has a rugged, breathtaking coast covered with cliffs and large rocks. I set the Justice Agency book, No Way Out in a fictional town on the coast. The story opens in a blinding, cold rainstorm, and it’s still one of my favorite settings.


painted hills3. And Oregon has the high desert with stunning views like this one in the Painted Hills. I have yet to use the desert as a setting, but it will be featured in my next romantic suspense series, Agents Under Fire.

So now that you know more about Oregon, which setting would you like to read about?
