NIGHTWIND by Sarah Allis

Generically, this is a woman's suspense story which appears in the form of a novel--i.e., equipped with a live landscape (Wisconsin farming country) and characters varying from very simple people who might still be in the old country to the lord of the manor, mills and farms, Gunnar Thornwald. Elizabeth Remington, who has run away from New York and an affair with a married man, finds herself back in the same situation with the local surgeon, but it's just as well he's around since two local young women and next her two dogs are savaged to death while Elizabeth stays alone, well past the time of menace. A first--and a very nice compromise between its believability and your susceptibility.
