Chapter Five of Entitled to Murder: A Cozy Mystery Short Story

At the moment, I’ve been enjoying writing within the cozy mystery genre. So far, every weekday this week I’ve managed to work on my cozy mystery short story every day. I’ve enjoyed the writing process so much that I’ve decided to share this next chapter with you right away and not wait until the next scheduled blog post day. So, here it is the fifth chapter of my cozy mystery short story titled, Entitled to Murder. Yes, I’m still calling it a short story, even though I suspect the story will be the length of a novella or short novel. Every few days, I will release a chapter from Entitled to Murder on this blog throughout the next few weeks, until I reach the end of the story. Keep your eyes peeled for more entries.

Chapter One of Entitled to Murder: A Cozy Mystery Short Story

I’m excited to share with you the first chapter of my very first cozy mystery short story titled, Entitled to Murder. Every Friday, over the next few weeks, I will release a chapter from the short story over on this blog, and on Wattpad. The story is set on a sheep farm in Derbyshire, England, on October 31st, 1989. Yes, it’s set in the ’80s and early ’90s. Say goodbye to mobile phones, ADSL, and the world wide web. But, it’s not all that bad, in 1989 we had Lotus Notes, Nintendo Game and Watch, and good old landlines. I have to admit the lack of mobile phones with cameras and high-speed internet connections adds a bit of drama and conflict to the world of amateur sleuthing.
