Book one in the new Teddy Bear Mystery series. I have loved and collected teddy bears since I was just a little girl so when I heard about this book I knew that I would have to read it. We get to meet Sasha who manages the family teddy bear shop and production factory that her father created. The store sounds really cute and I enjoyed reading about the making of the bears as well. The traumatizing part was when the murder victim was found next to the stuffing machine with his throat stuffed. This made me feel bad for the bears because the dead guy was not very nice so I had no sympathy for him. Sasha's Uncle ends up the prime suspect for awhile and the businesses are shut down while part of the investigation is conducted. Sasha feels compelled to investigate and makes things worse along the way though she finds this out a little late. There is lots of stuff happening in this book. Besides the murder there id family drama, personal issues, and more so there is always something to focus on. I really enjoyed the progression finding it very well written and the bears were just the icing on the cake. I really enjoyed it so it gets 4/5 stars.
