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 ...
