I have a problem.
Ok, I have many problems, but today’s pest is legitimacy.
I want legitimate sense to be made in my Cozy Mystery.
Logical jumps and bold assumptions made by my sleuth should be based on reality. Real people. Real facts. I’m all for “willing suspension of disbelief,” but the foundation of truth this concept is built on must be strong for the story to fly.
Alas, I have become a foundation fanatic. I panic every time I leave legitimacy behind.
