FINAL TRIMESTER, Book One in the Quigley Triplets Series by Dianna T. Benson

Final Trimester

Book One in the Quigley Triplets Series

Dianna T. Benson

Paramedic Jodi Duncan recognizes the work of a serial killer before the Myrtle Beach PD even suspects a connection between the deaths of two pregnant women. Despite the vast differences in the two cases, Jodi urges Detective Nate Quigley to think outside the box. After digging deep into the separate investigations, Nate finds no evidence to support a serial killer theory, and he warns Jodi to back off police business, which only fuels her passion for the cases.

When a third pregnant woman is murdered, Nate is named lead detective on the case and works to link the deaths in order to unmask and stop the serial murderer, a disturbed man who believes God and the devil battle inside his head to bend him according to their wills. As he fights both voices, his interest fixates on Jodi when he discovers her obsession with ending his rampage.


I am excited to have Dianna Benson on our blog today with her new book, Final Trimester.  Dianna was kind enough to share a little about herself with me and I hope you enjoy this short interview.

Lorilyn:  Why did you write Final Trimester?

Dianna: The idea for the killer’s character in Final Trimester sprouted to development the first month I worked in EMS due to an actual individual I encountered. I’m fascinated by intense human behavior that causes extreme chaos and destruction, and I love to see people step out of their comfort zones to stop that destructive person no matter how difficult the task.     

Suspense is my natural writing voice.
Being an EMT and a Haz-Mat and FEMA Operative for nearly a decade, I naturally implement my firsthand medical and rescue knowledge and experience into all my books.
Inspirational is a thread I love writing and it fits within my characterizations and plot lines like a key puzzle piece  

Lorilyn: What did you learn from writing Final Trimester?

Dianna: No matter how creepy a serial murderer’s method’s, the story can be written in a soft and inspirational tone yet with strong characterization and excitement.

Lorilyn: Who would enjoy reading Final Trimester?

Dianna:   The best way to answer that is to include here two fellow suspense author’s opinions after reading Final Trimester, and one of them was seven months pregnant at the time of reading:

“Grab your oxygen mask, you just might need it as you turn the pages of Dianna T. Benson’s latest novel, Final Trimester, a fast paced and psychologically thrilling suspense story with an unexpected twist. Though a dark tale at times, the story contains elements of hope and faith and points readers toward the Light (of the World).” – Heidi Glick, author of Dog Tags

More twists and turns than a mountain road! If you’re looking for a thrill ride, this book [Final Trimester] is it. Benson delivers not only a great story but one with wonderful characters and great dialogue. Along with that she has a unique writing style that keeps the book moving forward. Her real-life knowledge of medicine comes through time after time. All in all, a story not to be missed.” Lillian Duncan, author of Betrayed
