When someone occupying a bear costume is found murdered, one of their own (BHN) becomes a suspect in the murder investigation. Far from the comforts of home and bargains in Three Horses, Montana who could these four women trust?
In this second and final book in the Bargain Hunters Mysteries series, I enjoyed reconnecting with the girls in a new adventure! I found the book hard to put down. The introduction of additional characters and new scenery kept the story moving and entertaining! With twists, turns and suspense in the storyline (had me guessing throughout) along with a sprinkling of humor and romance this book has it all. I connected with the characters through the dialogue and at times felt as if I were there. I found the overall message to be inspiring and faith challenging and would recommend this book to others.
While this is a lighthearted mystery, it isn't easy to figure out! Sharon Dunn manages to keep the reader in suspense, but write with love for the Lord and a sense of humor at the same time. Great reading!
Ginger finds herself in for way more than she is expecting when she arrives at the Hotel with the other Bargain Hunters. There is nothing but troubles from the start to the end of their trip. Her husband loses his place on the Inventor's Convention - in fact it ends up being cancelled due to a murder. There is a guy murdered in a teddy bear suit. Kindra finds herself falling for a guy in a teddy bear suit who turns out not to be the one murdered.Ginger is knocked out and ends up miles from the hotel. Ginger is trying to solve the murder and at one point is even a suspect to the police. There is a skiing squirrel kidnapped and murdered, a cat lost, jewelry thiefs, and murder plus more. There is also romance, bargain hunting, and excitement. A book that will hold your interest from beginning to end.
Everybody has a dream.For the ladies of BHN it's a bargain at the world's biggest garage sale. For Earl it's getting one of his inventions noticed. For others it's fame, fortune, and a host of other things that can make murder seem almost and sane and reasonable. So when the teddy bear drops dead, there's a dozen reasons why someone would want him dead. Though using the squirrel as a method of homicide is...disturbing...and makes you really wonder just who could be behind this evil deed.Ginger, head of the BHN wonders that too. As she sets out to investigate the other ladies each get caught into their own stories. Has Kindra finally found love...only to lose it? Has Arleta found something even greater than that?The questions keep coming and the pursuit of answers leads the reader breathless through the second book in the Bargain Hunters Mystery series. You don't need to read the first book to know what's going on, but you'll certainly want to pick it up so that you can get to know these lovable, quirky characters better. The author, Sharon Dunn, is amazing and you'll be kept in suspense to the very last page. I highly recommend this book!
I've read enough mysteries that sometimes I figure out the villain, before the author exposes him/her. It's a fun challenge for me. But this time I was surprised.The squirrel lovers convention added a nice touch of comic relief. Some call it wit-lit. I recommend the book and will be reading more books by Sharon Dunn.
