Creating a Christmas Whodunit Party – Part 2

In the name of seasonal fun I’m writing a Christmas Whodunit Party plan on my blog. Hopefully you, my readers, will help me, or kill me in the process. This is the second part.

The Femme Fatale!


Who doesn’t love a wicked  Femme Fatale in a story?

Definition: A femme fatale “… is a stock character a mysterious and seductive woman whose charms ensnare her lovers, often leading them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations. She is an archetype of literature and art. Her ability to entrance and hypnotise her victim with a spell was in the earliest stories seen as being literally supernatural; hence, the femme fatale today is still often described as having a power akin to an enchantress, seductress, vampire, witch, or demon, having power over men. ” (Wikipedia)

Sinfully seductive Sadie Sugarland is loved by all men and hated by their wives and girlfriends. With a reputation that would make romance writer blush, she sashays her way around social gatherings marking her territory with broken hearts. Some say she once was a high class Madame in Paris. Others say she is the spawn of the devil. Whatever her background, one thing is clear, Sadie knows all the pillow secrets in town.

Sadie’s 2 Truths and a Lie Card

(The 2 truths and a lie cards are used when party members mingle.)

Truth: Sadie has piercings in her most of her private places and a tattoo of a fox on her lower back.

Truth: Sadie …

Lie: Damian Black asked Sadie to marry him.

My questions to you:

  1. Can you come up with alternative names for Sadie. Pussy Galore is taken btw.
  2. What is the second truth for Sadie?

The Christmas Whodunit Party Series:

Part 1 – Setting and Victim

Part 2 – The Femme Fatale

To recap we now have a setting, a victim (Damian Black) and a femme fatale (Sadie Sugarland).

btw – The winner of my Midnight Magic Launch Rafflecopter Giveaway is Debbie Penney. Congratulations Debbie.

5 Things I Like About Humpday

  1. It’s not Monday.
  2. That time-ahead and time-behind feeling of being on an adventure.
  3. No one expects much of me on a Wednesday.
  4. I’m half way there and the fact that I’m up and out of bed means I’m more than half way.
  5. I have time left to finish.

How about you? Any thoughts on Wednesdays?

Launch Day * Confessions of a Pirate Ghost!!!

Everyone has secrets.

Escaping the clutches of a mobster, art forger Harley Davis dives off a yacht in the middle of the night and swims ashore to Sunset Cove, a small town in the Pacific Northwest, where the only light she sees comes from inside a haunted teahouse. Soaking wet and shaking, she pauses at the door. No one in their right mind would enter such a creepy place, but she has no choice. She needs to hide.

Pirate ghost, Three-Sheets, enjoys his extended life on earth, gambling and flirting with the ladies, but when he meets Harley, he discovers he wants more out of death than a good gambling hand.

As the charming Three Sheets woos Harley, her former boss puts a contract on her head. What do you get when you mix a saucy thief, a pirate ghost and an angry godfather? Another fun, Gambling Ghost story.
