I have 2 ideas sketched out for my new manuscript. They both fall into the cozy mystery genre and the protaganist and many of the secondary characters are the same in each. I like both of them and can't decide which to work on first so I'm asking for opinions.
Here are the pitches:
1. The Case of the Offed Boss
Annie just discovered her boss dead on the floor in his office. She's one of 9 people with the motive, means and opportunity to kill him, but she's the only one without an airtight alibi. She has 48 hours to prove her innocence and find the real killer before being arrested for a crime she didn't commit.
2. The Case of the Altared Man
Just as they were about to open their meeting, a dead man fell through the ceiling and landed in front of the altar. Now the ladies of Peony Chapter must discover who he is, how he died and why he waited until Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. to drop in on them.
Opinions please - and if you don't like either one, I do have some other ideas brewing.
