Two Weeks Down, Two to Go

Day 14 of NaNo and I'm struggling to find the plot. I've got a couple dead bodies and a missing husband. My Hero and heroine are standing around looking for a reason to do something other than take a leisurely trip to a nice hotel and spend the day together. They hope the husband stays gone.

I need to up the stakes for the couple. Set the wife up as a possible suspect? Give the detective a more personal reason to find the killer? Oooh! How about if her four year old daughter is kidnapped? Hmm, not really a fan of children in danger - too scary for a mom of two daughters.

Still some more work to do to make this plot really tight. I want the reader to be on the edge of their chair.

Hey don't worry about plot...I know I'm not LOL! I have so many holes I'll need to use a bucket of puddy to plug them.
