I Know, I Know!


 Sleuth Sisters #4 has been a long time coming, and to be honest, it isn't close to being ready.
For one thing, it needs a title.
The cover artist is booked until mid-February, which is okay, because without a title it would just be

A Sleuth Sisters Mystery
by Maggie Pill

We'll keep the theme of three wooden bars,with a representation of one sister on each. The season is autumn, so I'm guessing she'll choose something orange-ish for the background color, and I suggested purses this time: expensive and highly decorated for Retta, black and business-like for Barb, and a dollar store cheapie for Faye.


#4 concerns a lake and the property around it. There's also a flock of chickens in this one, so I've been trying to make chicken allusions ("Is that a chicken joke?" a la Jo Anne Worley for all you old folks).

Here's a list, none of which I'm completely in love with. I welcome your input and more suggestions.

A Coop Full of Murder
A Rat in the Hen-house
The Problem in the Lake
Murder on Brayton Lake
A Long, Tall Drink of Murder
A Lakeful of Trouble
Murder with Chickens

  5. Thanks, Asena! I might change the name of the water to something that allows alliteration, like Skinner Springs: Murder at Skinner Springs? Sleuthing at Skinner Springs? I keep thinking I'll know it when I hear it...
