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.

The FIDDLING WITH MURDER Cozy Mysteries
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, 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. Her newly-found relatives in South Dakota can make that a reality, but a gang of fossil rustlers and the secrets of a missing shepherd may turn Constancy's long-awaited Christmas dream into nightmare.
The ghost that has haunted Danny Egan since childhood may not be dead. Will Danny's and Constancy's journey to Ireland bring peace--or forever silence Danny's tune?
