The Silver Bear Shop and Factory might be the cutest place around, but there’s nothing warm and fuzzy about murder . . .
As manager of the family teddy bear shop and factory, thirty-one-year-old Sasha Silverman leads a charmed life. Well, except for the part about being a single divorcĂ©e with a ticking biological clock in small-town Silver Hollow. And that’s just kid’s stuff compared to Will Taylor, the sales rep who’s set on making drastic changes to the business her parents built from scratch—with or without Sasha’s approval . . .
But before Will digs his claws in, someone pulls the stuffing out of his plan . . . and leaves his dead body inside the factory. Reeling from shock, Sasha’s hit with more bad news—police suspect her hot-tempered Uncle Ross may have murdered him. Sasha knows her uncle would never do such a thing, and she’s launching her own little investigation to expose the truth. As she tracks Will’s biggest rivals and enemies for clues, Sasha can’t get too comfy—or she’ll become the next plaything for a killer . . .

What I Thought:

Two things I love are teddy bears and cozy mysteries, so what could go better together than those two things!  This one did not disappoint me either.  It kept my attention from the very beginning and kept me guessing till the end.  I enjoyed visiting Silver Hollow and the Silver Bear Shop and Factory.  The story was well thought out and developed and the characters were all believable.  The book was well written and flowed really well, making it a quick read.  There were many twists and turns in this book that kept it interesting and kept you wondering who the killer was and why the victim was killed.  I will definitely be visiting Silver Hollow again soon, I can't wait for the next installment in the Teddy Bear Mystery. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
