Since the Black Widow was conservatively estimated at a worth of two million dollars, Julia asks a lawyer about how the laws of inheritance work. What does he tell her, and did you go to an attorney to pose Julia’s question?
Louise Penny has said, “I’m trying to make every book slightly different. The challenge and danger of writing a series is writing the same book over and over again.” I’ve been changing things up both to keep the reader from getting bored and to challenge myself. For a writer with a first pub, I would say, “It depends.” If I were trying to be traditionally published in an established market, like cozies, I would prove in the first book that I understood the genre and the audience, and save the experimentation for later in the series. For example, it’s pretty common for authors of long-running series to change locale in a book or two—have the sleuth solve a murder while on vacation or visiting family. But it’s important to establish the series setting first.
When Julia arrives in Boston to see lost relatives, they are gathered for Hugh’s funeral. When Hugh’s cause of death is determined to be murder, Julia researches Paolo, Hugh’s hospice nurse. She has good reason to be suspicious doesn’t she?
