I'm thrilled to be a stop on the blog tour for author
Meg Macy
Book 2 in the Teddy Bear Mysteries

As autumn air settles into the quaint small town of Silver Hollow, there’s nothing more popular than Sasha’s teddy bears—and murder in cold blood . . . 
Silver Bear Shop and Factory manager Sasha Silverman is cozying up to the fall season by hosting Silver Hollow’s Cranbeary Tea Party, the opening event of the village’s Oktobear Fest—a too-cute celebration themed around teddy bears. She barely has a moment to agonize over the return of her former high school rival, Holly Parker, whose new toy and bookstore in town could spell big trouble for the Silver Bear Shop and her cousin’s small bookstore . . .
But when Sasha discovers Holly’s shop assistant dead with a knife plunged in her body, the unpleasant woman suddenly looks like a real backstabber. So does Sasha’s ex-husband, rumored to have rekindled the fiery extramarital affair he once had with the victim. Now, before a gruesome homicide case takes the fun out of both the Fest and her personal life, Sasha must identify the true culprit from a daunting suspect list—or risk becoming as lifeless as one of her stuffed bears . . .

Dear reader, I have found myself falling behind this week. While I read and enjoyed BEAR WITNESS TO MURDER, time got away from me and I haven't written my review. So, the wonderful Karen M. Owen of A Cup of Tea and a Cozy Mystery has allowed me to share her wonderful review with you. My review will be posted at a later date.

Review by Karen M.Owen of 
A Cup of Tea and a Cozy Mystery

Meg Macy has the second book in her teddy bear mystery series coming out at the end of the month from Kensington and it is such a good read. This second book in the series doesn't disappoint and the relationship between Sasha and her Sister Maddie is a very good one, I like their dynamic and I like how this second part of the story unfolds. 

Sasha is a strong character who is easy to relate too, I love her dedication to the bear store and factory and to her little puppy. The story line was good and I did not truly have the whole thing figured out until the end but I did some of it coming, but I kind of enjoyed that. I loved the cuddly nature of the story and the theme of OktoBear Fest. Made me wish I truly lived in a small town with fun activities like this. A great read and a great series. I cannot wait for the next one. I hope it is Christmas themed!
