Can They Find Love With A Murderer On The Loose? 
When curvy Candice Gray witnesses a grizzly bear shot in the woods, she doesn’t expect to be thrust into the middle of a murder investigation. 

Smoking hot, Game Warden, Wyatt McCloud isn’t a homicide detective, but that’s exactly what he has to be when a shifter turns up dead in the forest he patrols. 

With his bear roaring that he’s found his mate, will Wyatt be able to keep his mind on the investigation long enough to solve the case? 

Get ready for lots of steam between a grizzly cowboy and a sweet, sassy hiker.

Bear Witness was a pretty typical bear shifter romance. I could have done without the “one true mate” trope. Even as someone who doesn’t disbelieve the idea of soulmates, the whole “one true mate” trope is a tired one. Also has nothing to do with bears…

Negating that, the novella was pretty enjoyable. The characters are interesting enough, the erotic scenes steamy, and the ending satisfactory. The feature that stuck out to me was prejudice against shifters. There have been novels before where humans revolt against paranormal beings, but this novel was different. It help more like the fight against racism, sexism, etc. that we experience now. It made me much more passionate about than the novel had it not been present.
