If you prefer your mysteries
profanity, obscenity, "steamy" romance and/or excessive gore, you may enjoy these books. Some (the Fairy-Tale Mysteries) have bits of folklore and fantasy woven into the story. All but one are set in the Missouri Ozarks.

The FIDDLING WITH MURDER Cozy Mysteries
free short story:
"Did you know some seals are humans under enchantment?"
main character from
Constancy Grace Stafford never lived up to her middle name, but stumbling over a corpse turns into her worst trip ever. Danny Egan, town cop and master fiddler, defies a direct order to stay off the case. Only he knows how much this waltz with danger could ultimately cost him.
Constancy's recent losses have shaken her. Even her engagement to diamond magnate, Zared Fraser, hasn't helped. Officer Danny Egan thinks he never wants to see Constancy again. A frantic S.O.S. proves him wrong and tumbles them both into a deadly reel that will change their lives forever.
Constancy, fed up with murder, dreams of living a normal, peaceful life. But death at a music show, the clammy darkness of an unmapped Ozarks cave system, and a desperate fiddler's lament threaten to destroy her dream--
and the two most precious people in her life.
Constancy always dreamed of celebrating Christmas with a large family. She's thrilled to be able to savor the holiday with her newly-
found relatives in South Dakota, but a gang of fossil rustlers and the secrets of a missing shepherd may turn Constancy's long-
awaited dream into nightmare.
