Bearly Departed - Review & Giveaway

Review


BEARLY DEPARTED by Meg Macy
The First Shamelessly Adorable Teddy Bear Mystery

Although she expected her life to be a bit different, at age 31 Sasha Silverman is happy to manage her family's teddy bear shop and factory. Will Taylor, the stores sales representative, is the thorn in everybody's side and when he threatens to cut staff Sasha declares, "Over my dead body". However, after Will claims that the store will send its production over-seas it's not her body that is found.

Meg Macy creates a wonderful sense of place in BEARLY DEPARTED. I am able to clearly see myself walking the hot and, too humid for me, streets of Silver Hollow, Michigan. I love going on factory tours and I adore plushies so the Silver Bear Shop and Factory is a place I wish I could really visit, especially with a Christmas themed store right across the street!  The characters are varied with more than one villainous citizen residing in and around this quaint community.

With themes of family and tradition as well as progress and letting go BEARLY DEPARTED is an enjoyable start to a new series.

  1. I've been reading on this one for a month now. I just can't seem to find the time and energy to read. I'm also having a bit of trouble getting into it as I don't care much for Sasha but the story overall is enjoyable.

  2. Teddy bears and dolls are two things I love to collect. Having the teddy bear from my husband when we were dating and the first doll I received which was from my maternal grandmother, both are near and dear to my heart. Thanks for the introduction to Meg and her book.

  12. Was on another site a bit ago about rhubarb. Reminded me of the time I got a bit of rhubarb/cherry sauce on my Teddy. Was so upset. Grandma said she would fix him. And left. When she came back there was no evidence of the sauce on Teddy anywhere. I still have no clue how she did it. Della at deepotter (at) peoplepc (dot) com
