a Six Foot Teddy?

Yes, in Sharon Dunn's world!

Sharon Dunn is the author of the latest Bargain Hunters Mystery, Death of a Six-Foot Teddy Bear. Ginger and the Bargain Hunters are back, after the first book, Death of a Garage Sale Newbie. It's about a year later, and Ginger and the gals are in Calamity, Nevada (a symbolic name if there ever was one!), so that Ginger's husband Earl can show off some of his inventions at a convention for inventors. When a man in a teddy bear costume turns up dead, the gals learn a lesson about trusting in God rather than in wealth as they try to solve the crime and clear their names.

This book was a fun read! I liked it much, much better than book 1, probably because the death was much more, well, deserved in this case. Just when it seemed nothing else could go wrong, well, it did. In spades.

And yet, and yet, I enjoyed this book. I would recommend it for anyone who loves a good mystery. Anytime the author surprises me, I'm pleased. I was surprised. I did not see the end coming. That should be a clue (pun intended!) that this is a good mystery!
