Mini Review: The Treacherous Teddy

Today's book is The Treacherous Teddy by John J. Lamb. This book is the fifth in a series.

Ashleigh Lyon is on one of her shifts as a deputy when she is sideswiped by a car leaving a driveway. When the car escapes, she goes back to the accident scene and finds a dead man. He has an arrow sticking out of his chest, which may mean it was just a hunting accident. Is that the case, or was it murder?

With the teddy bear theme of the series, you might think these are light and fluffy. The reality is they are pretty serious mysteries. With the author being a retired cop, they take on a police procedural edge.

But what I really love are Ashleigh and our main character, Brad. They are a married couple still very much in love. And the puns scattered throughout tickle my funny bone.

The plot started a little slowly, but once it got going, I was certianly hooked. I didn't want to put the book down at all but keep reading to find out who done it.
