The title for this mystery came before I had any idea what the plot would be. Of course there were some ongoing plot lines from the previous book since many of the same characters appear, but I had no idea what the main mystery would be.
One of my author friends sent me a Facebook message and gave me this title.
I began writing the book without any idea how I would tie in the title. In fact, I was nearly finished and still had no idea how the title would fit into what I'd written.
Then came the "Ah ha!" moment and I knew exactly why Murder in the Worst Degree was the perfect title. You'll have to read it to see why it worked.
