It had been almost three years since I read the first one (what made me wait so long I have no idea other than a constantly growing TBR!), so it took just a little bit to get reacquainted with the characters. I got a kick out of Aunt Eve and Uncle Ross bickering at one another. And for some odd reason, Sasha's mom was Flynn, Sasha's full-of-himself ex-husband's new number one fan. But Sasha had gotten close to a new guy, and I'm definitely on board for that, he's awesome! I was surprised at who the killer was, but the showdown was pretty exciting. I'm going to try not to let so much time pass before I read the next book.
In this installment Sasha Silverman and her family are gearing up to participate in the numerous fall events in their small town when Sasha yet again stumbles upon a dead body in a parking lot. Calling the police Sasha believes the victim is her old high school nemesis that had just returned to town and opened a similar business but instead they find her assistant wearing Holly’s jacket. As the list of potential suspects grow and the investigation to those around Sasha start getting a bit close Sasha begins her own investigating again.
This series yet again has a very cute small town setting to enjoy along with likable characters to follow. But what I found yet again is that to me it feels like it can drag a bit here and there being a little overly detailed in places. There were also some things happening that I didn’t quite like for instance Sasha’s mother pushing to return to a cheating ex…why??? But overall the small town/store vibe and the mystery both are enjoyable enough to return to the series leaving me to rate them 3.5 stars.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
Between preparing for the town's Oktobear Fest and managing the Silver Bear Shop, Sasha Silverman has time for little else. So when her old high school rival Holly Parker returns to town opening a new toy and bookstore, Sasha must find a way to confront the woman determined to put her and her family out of business. After Sasha finds Holly's assistant murdered with a knife to the back, Sasha is left wondering just how far Holly will go to get what she wants.
The death of Holly's assistant Gina was interesting and you're immediately left to wonder if the killer was really after Holly or if Holly herself may have been the culprit. When several people close to Sasha are considered as possible suspects, she can't help but begin to investigate on her own. I liked seeing Sasha's skills as an investigator improve from the first book and I enjoyed watching her work the case. It was also nice to see that while Sasha wanted to solve the case, she didn't let it overtake her life and instead worked on it when she had time. I did figure out who the killer was before the reveal, but I still enjoyed the motive given. The ending did surprise me as the author definitely went an unexpected route in my opinion but it worked well for the story.
The issue I had with the first book was that I had a hard time connecting with the characters which thankfully was not an issue in this book. I enjoyed learning more about Sasha's family and I found myself liking them more this time around. I liked the inclusion of a romance for Sasha and felt the chosen guy was perfect for her despite initially thinking there would be a romance between her and a different character. Ultimately my only issue regarding the characters was Sasha's mother constantly trying to convince her to get back together with her cheating ex-husband which I found to be completely unnecessary.
Overall I enjoyed Bear Witness to Murder more than the first book and I'm excited to see where the author takes the series in future books. I definitely recommend this series for fans of cozies with charming settings.
