Description:

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 divorcee 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 . . . 

My Thoughts: 

This book opens with sisters Sasha and Maddie working in their bear factory and what transpires when Will Taylor their sales rep who wants to make changes that goes against everything Sasha and Maddie were raised to believe about the bear factory.  When after a heated meeting of the workers goes wrong Will Taylor finds himself stuffed.  Who killed the sales rep and why?  Was it a heated fight with his wife?  Or did he upset the wrong person at the factory?

I enjoyed learning about bears and what goes into making them.  This book was such fun to read how Sasha tried to figure out what happened to keep her Uncle from being convicted of Will's murder.  Definitely a fabulous new book series that pulls you in and won't let go until the last page is turned.  Who would have thoughts bears could be so intriguing for young and old!
