After leaving us hanging at the end of your stories in our cliffhanger challenge last month, we asked you to put on your detective caps in August and solve these Summer Writing Club mysteries.
Reading all of your stories this month gave us that little thrill of discovering something unexpected at the end of a book. False accusations, red herrings, misleading clues… you guys managed to keep us guessing with twists and turns right up until the last paragraph. Congratulations to all of our featured writers, and great work to everyone who completed the August challenge. Case closed!
Can you solve all the mysteries below? Elementary, my dear Watson!
