Genre: Cozy Mystery
Source: Great Escapes
Sasha is having a busy month at the Bear family factory, so when she discovers a body, she will be more stressed than ever! Of course she will not be able to stay away, so she will try to discover the truth. Ready for a Bear murder?
'"Sometimes joking takes the edge off a very nasty truth." The elderly lady who'd first asked about the room nodded wisely, her hands as shaky as her voice. "I read somewhere, and it's true. 'There's a thin line that separates laughter and pain, comedy and tragedy, humor and hurt.' I love that quote"
"Who said that, Hannah? William Shakespeare?" Walter asked.
"Erma Bombeck," she said. "You should know, you gave me that book!"
The seniors all laughed. "I've got a better one," Walter said." 'Learn from the mistakes of others. You can never make them all yourself.' Groucho Marx."'
I like the main character of the story, Sasha, how tries to balance the stressful family, the busy work and starting to date again. So trying to discover a killer will make this busy life tremble a little around her, but if anyone is capable of doing twenty things at the same time, this is Sasha!
As the previous book of the series, I can not stand Sasha's mother, really, how a mother would want a cheater with her daughter? Totally unbelievable! But Sasha, as always doesn't complain at all, simply closes her mouth when her mother tries to plan all type of dates with her ex-husband...!
Every time I read one of the books of the "A Teddy Bear Mystery" series makes me want to take a look at the factory and see all the amazing bears they create, I imagine them so cute... This is the second book of the series, but you can read it as standalone.
I can not forget to talk about the victim, because really, she doesn't have many friends, but there's no one with a strong motive to kill her... On the other side, her business partner, Holly, she has a long list of enemies, even our main character, Sasha... So, who was the real target, Gina or Holly?
All the story is told around the Oktobear Feast, it was really original reading about all the bear creations and ideas for kids, really, if this kind of village exist I want the name of the town!
Ready for a cute mystery, full of twists and sweet bears?
