Is the letter meant to be opened sometime in particular? Like, for example, a will? Is there any particularity like this one to the letter?
Or is it a regular letter that she would send to her cousin living in Belgium?

Is it written by hand? Typed? Printed? Collaged from newspapers?
Does it take the form of an essay? (eg. structured in paragraphs)
Is it composed with images or other content?

Could it be confused with a regular (though old-fashioned) "Dear Jackie, how are you..." letter?
Or is it like a note left on the fridge door/counter top/whatever?
If so, is it like that because of the way it is used? Or because of its content?

Is the content shorter than:
half a page?
one page? One sheet?
Two pages? Two sheets?
or is it longer?
(if it is exactly one of those, please mention)

Does anybody read the letter before her death? How about after her death?

But there was a FA before, so I assume her husband didn't read the letter. I also assume you wouldn't count her as a reader when you say that somebody read it.
So hmm... Did the killer read the letter? Did the letter cause him to resort to murder?

if she had not written the letter she would be still alive?
the killer entered the house with the purpose to kill her? Or he/she killed her only after reading what she had written?
Was she ill? was her husband ill?
Dis she know that the act of writing that letter might cause her death?
Was she in a danger?

Nice of you to use my real name! Thanks! :-)

The killer had to be in the house to read the letter, right? And he was there with no murderous thougts initially. Is he a member of the family? Or some kind of worker doing his job?

Is the relationship with Estelle relevant? Family? Friend? Lover? Acquaintance? Colleague? Competitor? Nemesis?
Killer's relationship with her husband relevant? Friend? Lover? Acquaintance?

I assumed that if he's family with the wife, he's family with the husband. Do you mean that he's related by blood to the husband, and only by alliance with the Estelle?

And in the shadow of a expected yes, I ask...
Relationship with the husband: son/daughter from another marriage? Father? Mother? Sister? Brother? Ex-wife maybe?

And of course, when I typed "the Estelle", I initially wanted to say "the wife" and backspaced too few characters...

Are they twins?
Is the brother older than the husband? Younger? Relevant?

Is any part of the letter about the killer brother?
Is there anything in the letter that is obviously relevant to him? (i.e. would I think about him while reading it, if I knew them?)
Does he assume something? Is he right?

Is the way he murders her relevant, or only the motive?

Is this all taking place within a random, average family? Or does this family have some kind of fame/prestige?
If yes, is it - political? cultural? related to a business? other?

Did Estelle identify herself as the writer of the letter within the text of the letter? as the closing of the letter? Did she address the letter directly to her husband by name?

Just to clarify:
the husband does not suspect that his brother is in love with Estelle?
Estelle is not in love with the brother?
But the brother is in love with Estelle?
Estelle does not suspect that the brother is in love with her?

If the the brothers were switched, would the reader kill his brother's wife?
Where I'm trying to go is: Is there something particular in behaviour to the killer brother? Or does he kill because of the family's tradition, reputation, or similar?

Is the brother's misunderstanding related only to who the letter was addressed? The assumption that it was addressed to him? Or is there some other assumption/misunderstanding relevant?
Should we find out why he believed he was the recipient?

Did he think that Estelle was going to do something?
Or that she generally believed or felt something?

Did the letter refer to some past event? Did it contain plans for the future? Did it contain the word "husband"? Their names relevant? Such as thay all are sharing the same last name, so technically she and the brother could be reffered to as mr. and mrs. Smit..um..doe?

Or were they not legally married? Did she not take the husband's name? And she was saying that she intends to?

Does the letter say the she is leaving her husband for someone else? If so, the "someone else" is clearly not the brother? But he hopes so initially?
Does the brother find her with another man?

So.. even though the brother is secretly in love with her, he wouldn't want her to leave her husband for him.
Is it because he doesn't want her to leave her husband? Or because he doesn't want her to be with him?

Does the letter reveal one or more intentions of Estelle?
If so, does the brother incorrectly interpret those actions?
Does the brother assume that Estelle is going to do something that will endanger her? Endanger him?
Did Estelle place the letter (after she wrote it) into a place that her husband typically would visit/examine?
Was the brother engaging in a normal, everyday activity (brushing his teeth, doing his laundry) when he discovered the letter?
Or was he in the act of doing something he shouldn't have been doing (spying on someone, snooping through someone else's personal items)?

Hi Jumpingjack.

Does the letter contain Estelle's intentions for the immediate future? Does she propose to meet the recipient somewhere?

Is the religion or the origin of the family relevant?

So sorry, I forgot to ask more questions, as I could have sworn I've already asked...

Would something bad happen to him if she left his brother for him?
Would something bad happen to him if she left his brother for someone else?
Would something bad happen to his brother if she left his brother for him?
Would something bad happen to his brother if she left his brother for someone else?

(the last two, of course, meaning something besides remaining alone)

Is the brother very religious, does he belong to a sect that forbids divorces?
Is the husband, the wife or the brother very famous and he wants to avoid a scandal?

Hmm, I think I should clarify something here... there isn't really another big, tangible motive that he has for killing her. Suffice to say that, in a rash moment, out of anger that she should betray his brother, as well as his own guilt (since he really is in love with her), he kills her. The thing to find out now is what caused this misunderstanding! Sorry for any confusion!

Does the husband and his brother have the same, or similarly spelled names, a name that is an anagram of the other's? Did she make a typo when writing her husbands name? Is her handwriting really bad, so you can easily mistake what is written for something else? Does she have dyslexia? Is it written in Braille? Does the brother have the same name as their dog, or someone else such as a relative?

"There's a particular reason why he thought the letter was for him"...
because of where Estelle placed it after she wrote it?
because of something Estelle had said to the brother at some point in the past?
because of the particular wording of the letter?

Had Estelle put the letter under a pillow? somewhere else on/in a bed? in a drawer? somewhere else in a bedroom? inside a vehicle? inside a book? on a shelf somewhere?
Is the exact location of the letter relevant, or just important that the brother found it before the husband did?
because she referred to the intended recipient by pronouns (you, him, etc) and not by his actual name?

You said it is not relevant where the brother found the letter? But is it relevant why she put the letter somewhere? If I would write a letter to my husband I would take care that he finds it! Or is it a little game between them that they hide letters for each other so the other one could have a nice surprise?
The situation she describes: Is it an everyday-situation like damia described? Or is it something special and it is a big coincidence that the brother could mistake it?

It just wasn't meant for him to see If I would write a letter to my husband I would take care that he finds it! Well Estelle's is the kind of little private love letter that is written more for the writer's own indulgence than for the person addressed! Or is it a little game between them that they hide letters for each other so the other one could have a nice surprise? No
The situation she describes: Is it an everyday-situation like damia described? Yopeish..a more general situation, not quite like the situation Damia described Or is it something special and it is a big coincidence that the brother could mistake it? No

So Estelle could have even written this "letter" in a diary, or journal, or simply somewhere in which she freely express her thoughts and feelings for the sake of writing them down?

Did she plan to eventually show her writings to anyone? Did she expect her husband to read that and other writings of hers?

I'm just thiking...if Estelle was writing this 'letter' more for herself than for her husband, the brother may have stumbled onto other similar writings when he found this one...is this the case?

With delicate I mean sexuality. Is she writing about erotic fantasies?
Is it the hole content of the letter or a special part that makes the brother think she means him. I assume that with a little thinking he could see that she lives with her husband AND his brother.

While writing the letter was she aware that it could be mistaken in this way? Did she think for any second about this?

I think we can have a spoiler now!

************************SPOILER**********************

Estelle leads a happy, peaceful life alone with her husband, until his brother runs into financial difficulties and comes to live with them. One day, Estelle writes a private, diaryesque and passionate letter to her husband. Afraid of the embarrassment she would feel if he read it, she wrote it in French, which her husband didn't understand. Unfortunately, the brother did, and thus assumed that this letter was meant for him, written in French on purpose so that his own innocent brother would be unaware of his wife's wicked desires. Overcome by rage towards Estelle for betraying his brother, and with guilt for his own forbidden lust, he seals her fate--to be the heroine of a lateral puzzle.

The end!
