Right now, I'm focusing on those suspects and their motives (and a little backstory too). It's starting to shape up nicely, and I've even given the sleuth a best friend, besides her husband, of course. He has a rich backstory that just keeps developing - plus, he's gay, which makes it that much better. Unfortunately, he's a suspect in this one, so we'll see what's in store for him. I'm really laying it on thick for this guy, and he'll have to dig himself out of a massive hole. I'm not going to lie - I'm excited to watch him try.
He's starting to really look like a good candidate for murder, and I really need to raise the stakes for the other people to make everything seem at least a little realistic.
