Marvelous Who-Dunn-It! Aug 26, 2008
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!
Recommended Jul 27, 2008
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.
A Fun "Cozy" done well by Dunn Jun 11, 2008
Sharon Dunn has a knack for writing hilarious fiction at the same time she tells a good story. A master at constructing a cozy mystery, Sharon skillfully weaves in all the elements that keep the reader guessing. The red herrings, false clues, dead-end trails, it's all there.
Death of a Six-Foot Teddy Bear is one fast-paced and delightful ride. A missing cat and a water-skiing squirrel, combined with a cluster of outrageous yet believable characters will have you eagerly flipping the pages to see what happens next. Not to mention trying to figure out who-dun-it.
I loved this book. And it was particularly fun for me because of its setting--smack in the middle of the southern Nevada desert. And, believe me, broken AC in the desert in the middle of summer is not a pleasant experience. I know. I live there.
Stuffed Teddy Bears and Secrets May 9, 2008
If you want to sit back and read a chapter of a book then set the book aside for days, this book is not for you. Sharon Dunn, author Death of a Garage Sale Newbie, wove a most interesting mystery.

And, while their days spent in Calamity appear to define the city's name, they more than define Ginger and her friends. They refine them. Can you lose everything and realize you have it all? With skill and wit Sharon Dunn has created a story that is believable and lovable. You will laugh and cry, sometimes on the same page. You will be sure you have solved the mystery and when you turn the page she surprises you with something else. I highly recommend this book.
