Molly needs access to Dad's computer. She's decided to branch out on her own and try to find out who murdered the guy on the beach. Molly's got some leads but she's keeping them to herself. Milly has a few of her own.

Milly's on watch

Milly's been up all night. She was perched on the window sill in the living room. The weather channel was on and the storm didn't appear to be letting up anytime soon. Milly was ready to leave at a minute's notice. The wind was howling and the waves covered the beach. Everybody was asleep but Milly. Molly knows that Milly will let her know if the storm takes a turn for the worse. During the quiet of the evening all Milly could think about was grandma. She should have stayed at grandma's house during this vacation. Milly loved grandma and if the truth was known she wasn't having that much fun on this vacation. Dad said it would be fun in the sun. Dad was not telling the truth. The heat was absolutely ridiculous and the storms were deadly. Then if you throw in one murder it was all too much for her. If they survived the night Milly was going to pack her bags and demand to go home. Grandma would welcome her with open arms. Thank goodness grandma didn't come on this vacation, her life would be in danger too, and that was simply not acceptable.

The long night

Molly got up once in the middle of the night and came to look out the front window. She could see as far as the picnic area and it was surrounded by water. The waves were splashing on the front window, that was not a good sign. Molly went back and crawled into bed. She was too tired to worry about the storm. Milly was an excellent watch cat and she would let them know if they began to float out in the water. The beach house was on stilts so that should give them some type of protection. At least the house wouldn't flood and if it did they'd be sitting in the ocean.

The weather channel

Milly was listening to the weather channel and they kept playing clips from storms throughout the years. It was enough to scare anyone half to death. The destruction was unbelievable. Water was very powerful and could destroy beach towns along the coast. The thought was making Milly feel sick. She would change the station, but she was afraid something bad was going to happen. Then she'd miss the warnings and maybe they would say it was time to evacuate. Milly could only hope that they would leave this place.

Surfing the net

Milly was thinking about the murder investigation. She knew for a fact that Molly was branching out on her own. Milly wasn't going to tell Dad that but Milly had a little inside information of her own. One day when everybody was on the beach Milly had been surfing the net. She decided to check the criminal files. She'd found a few very interesting facts. There had been a large jewelry heist out west. The authorities said there was no clues to be found. It was like the thief just disappeared. Milly wondered if maybe the thief and the jewels were right here in Carolina beach. When the time was right she was going to tell Molly. That is if they survived this storm.

Crime seems to follow poor Milly. She has no place to hide and on top of there is the freaking storm!

Thank God, she knows one who has the time to love and care for another - Grandma. May the world be full of them as others are just fixated on themselves!

The noose is tightening on the killer with three in-house investigators! When they pool their resources, he is a goner!
Thanks Nancy - siva

My dear Nancy,
You've an interesting story that will make a page turner, but you need to work on the craft of writing the novel. Start with brevity and cut off all unnecessary words. For eaxample,"Milly was listening to the weather channel and they kept playing clips from storms throughout the years. It was enough to scare anyone half to death. The destruction was unbelievable" could have been written-The weather channel showed scary clips of stroms of several years that caused unbelievable damage.
