Another in the Joan Spencer series of "cozy" mysteries. Joan has agreed to marry Fred Lindquist and Rebecca, Joan's daughter, surprises her with news of her own engagement.

This is about a 3.5 star book. I enjoyed the story and the setting. It revolves around a violin competition in Indiana. One of the contestants has her violin stolen and then goes missing herself. A good enough series, but not really anything special. Still, I liked this one.
