Death of a Six-Foot Teddy Bear by Sharon Dunn

When a man turns up dead in a teddy bear costume, Ginger and the other ladies of the Bargain Hunters Network learn a lesson about trusting in God rather than in wealth as they try to solve the crime and clear one of their own.

Sharon Dunn is the author of Death of a Garage Sale Newbie, book one in the Bargain Hunters Mysteries, and the Ruby Taylor mystery novels including Sassy Cinderella, which was voted Book of the Year by American Christian Fiction Writers. She earned a BA in television production and a master’s in history Sharon lives in Bozeman, Montana, with her husband of twenty years, three children, two cats, and lots of dust bunnies. Visit her website to learn more about Sharon!


The bright yellow cover with purple letters set against a black and white checkered floor covering should give you some idea about this second book in the Bargain Hunter Mystery Series. Expect things to be a bit out of kilter and you won’t have a problem at all with this story!

Sharon Dunn is yet another new author that I have recently added to a quickly growing collection. This book is the second in the series, but it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel. The characters are a pretty eclectic group ranging from the grey-headed empty-nester to the young college co-ed. They are bound together by the love of bargain hunting, and this story has brought them to the world’s largest garage sale. Who could resist?

When you add an inventor husband to the mix and an even stranger collection of characters waiting to be encountered at a hotel with a wind-up toy theme, there is no end to where your imagination can go! So be prepared for murder, mayhem and a healthy dose of female bonding. This is a fun read - perfect for a night by the fire! I would place this firmly in the cozy mystery genre. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by Gavin! Death of a Garage Sale Newbie is the first in this series, so you want to check that out for sure. Also, Steeple Hill has a Suspense and Mystery series that are firmly cozies. I've enjoyed a couple of those too.

The Christian Fiction market is filled with great mysteries right now, so look around carefully! I'm sure you'll find tons of great books to enjoy!
