This is a cute quick short story mystery. It is based on the board game Clue. The mystery takes place during a dinner party and there are plenty of suspects. Enjoy

If you were a fan of the game Clue you will find this story delightful. Brings back all the original players and adds a very interesting twist to the question who killed Mr.Boddy?

Hi Jenna
OUTSTANDING! Okay... so, truth be told, I was writing everyone's name down with arrows drawn from one to another, thinking I could figure out the conundrum that way... uh... not quite! LOL!
Simply great and I loved your final take on it all.
Wonderful writing!

I discovered THE BODDY IN THE SNOWBANK after I read Dru's review over at her blog. I don't read many e-Books, but since this novel was free on smashwords I thought I would give it a try.

THE BODDY IN THE SNOWBANK tells the story of Mr Boddy's demise, after he is found dead in a snowbank, following a very interesting dinner party.

For such a short story (only 8 pages) this story is so much fun. For me, it was very reminiscent of early Agatha Christie, with the country estate and the intriguing characters, with oh so many secrets!

With an ending full of surprises and one that I didn't see coming, it sure was a great way to spend a few minutes of reading on a winter's day.

THE BODDY IN THE SNOWBANK is free at Smashwords right now. I highly recommend you try out this fun little mystery. It's a definite must for fans of classic mystery novels, and anyone that has ever played Cluedo/Clue.
