From official release/information:
Brad and Ashleigh Lyon have been settling into their new home and new lives after the events of The Mournful Teddy. They're off to a bear show in Baltimore and Brad has made his own bear, Dirty Beary, to display at the show along with Ashleigh's Confection Collection. They had barely arrived when Brad needs to step between Jennifer and Tony Swift in the midst of a domestic dispute verging into physical abuse. Later they watch a noisy confrontation between Jennifer and Donna Jordan who accuses Jennifer of stealing her bear design. When Jennifer later dies after an asthma attack that turns out to have been murder, Brad feels he has to step in since the local police seem to think Brad is the number one suspect.
Book Description: Passions-and tempers-run high at a big-time bear show. And when a Cheery Cherub Bear designer is accused of stealing an idea - and later dies - Brad and Ashleigh Lyon's suspicions take wing.
