Just How Great is that Ape, Anyway?

When Bobbie and Grayson go on the hunt for the legendary Florida Skunk Ape, there's more than one tangled mystery afoot.

Grayson, the man Bobbie's hung her life and career on, is every bit as evasive as the creature they're tracking.

At the start of their investigation, a colossally bad judgement call leaves Bobbie wondering just exactly who—or what—the elusive being is. And she doesn't mean Bigfoot.

What she discovers may leave her questioning the entire primate subclass ...

Swamp gas. Batman. Sasquash casserole.

Does ape imitate life, or does life imitate ape?

It's gonna take all of Bobbie's fledgling investigative skills to figure out that age-old riddle.

Like Carl Hiassen? Tim Dorsey? Dorian Box? You'll probably love Freaky Florida Mystery Adventures, too! The weirdness of The X-Files and the unwashed insanity of My Name is Earl collide to form this deliciously snarky, totally abnormal mystery series. New from the author of the best-selling Val Fremden Mystery Series!

What Readers are Saying about the Freaky Florida Mystery Series:

“This series cracks me up!” Amazon Review

"I have read Tim Dorsey, Carl Hiaasen, and Randy Wayne White. Those writers are funny but they need to watch out for you." J. Heinrich

"I've heard the expression "I laughed so hard I cried" but I never experienced it until I read this book."Amazon Review

"I read a lot, and Kindle suggested this book. Moth Busters is laugh out loud funny. Is everyone in Florida crazy?"
Facebook Review

"Not a scary or over the top paranormal book. I stayed up until 2:30 in the morning reading it. It was just that good! I'm a real scaredy-cat, just not into reading about things that go bump in the night. It is filled with quirky characters, mystery and a lot of humor. So if you want to be truly entertained, READ THIS BOOK." Amazon Review

"Plenty of mysteries and slap stick humor with a backwoods redneck cousin thrown in the mix. I almost felt like I was reading a cross between Terry Pratchett and Piers Anthony." Amazon Review

“Full of wacky characters, amazing descriptions, and lots of theories of the unknown, this book makes for a funny mystery.” Amazon Review

“Rampant with humorous banter and fun interpersonal relationships over a solidly bizarre mystery and great characterization.” Amazon Review

“This is a rollicking ride from the very beginning with laugh-out-loud prose, rednecks, weirdos and Tootsie Pops...oh my!” Amazon Review

“I really like the characters--they are different from each other, each unique, and yet they come together to form a crazy but somehow harmonious whole--one that is likely to leave you saying HOLY CRAP.” Amazon Review

“Never a dull moment!” Amazon Review

“Ape Shift is the perfect title for this new book by Margaret Lashley. After reading this book, and laughing out loud, there is no doubt in my mind that the entire human population of Florida is Ape Shift crazy.” Amazon Review

“The best Freaky Florida yet!” Amazon Review

“The other forty nine states have Big Foot or Sasquatch. Only Florida has Skunk Ape. All previous theories of evolution are being discarded and forgotten. Only Margaret Lashley can write this mystery and explain it to the reader. Some of the stories of Skunk Ape may be too strange to believe, or they might all be true. Read this book and be ready to laugh out loud.” Amazon Review

“This book has plenty of humor, but it is far more than foolishness. It actually (gasp!) makes you think.” Amazon Review

“What can I say but that Margaret Lashley has done it again with a hysterically funny, laugh out loud, story.” Amazon Review
