FREE Boxed Set

Welcome to Waterfell Tweed, where things aren’t as cozy as they seem…
Sandy Shaw was happy with her life running the village cafe and bookstore, until a series of murders in the sleepy village cause everyone to second-guess just how peaceful things are.

Join Sandy as she sets out to solve the killers, and get peace restored, in this box set collection of the first three books in the Waterfell Tweed Cozy Mystery Series.


Each novella is around 30,000 words long and is a cozy mystery, meaning they are safe from swearing, sex, violence and cliffhangers. Each book can be read as a standalone but the series is best enjoyed if read in order.

Books are FREE Aug 3-5th

Five Oh is 50% off! 

Ever Notice How a Wedding Ring and a Noose are the Same Shape?

Val’s always been unlucky at love – and a whole bunch of other things. But she’s never actually felt cursed. Until now.

When fiancé Tom plans a romantic getaway and can’t go, one of Val’s pals goes instead. On the first day, her friend entangles Val in a prank that ticks off the wrong tourist. On the second day, she gets Val charged with murder.

To clear her name, Val must go fishing for the real culprit. But what kind of bait do you use when you don’t want to get caught yourself?

With both marriage and jail pressing down on her like potential life sentences, Val’s going to have to do some pretty fancy angling to get herself off the hook this time….

If you like deeply flawed characters and laugh-out-loud situations, you’ll love Five Oh. It’s the fifth book in Margaret Lashley’s hilarious Val Fremden Mystery Series. Get your copy now and join in on the fun!

Ziva just wants to celebrate her birthday.
Instead she finds a dead body.

Ziva doesn’t believe for a minute that her beauty client and family friend, Mrs. Birdie Jackson, would murder anyone; too bad she’s the only one.

If that wasn’t bad enough, someone is out to sabotage Ziva’s best friend’s wedding and ruin Ziva’s reputation.

Can Ziva solve the case and serve up some just desserts? Or will her investigation fall flatter than a wedding soufflé?

I’m a mystery author with a soft spot for romance and humor, too. I love all things girlie with a dollop of danger, have a strong affinity for the color pink (especially in diamonds and champagne), and, not to brag, but chocolate and I are in a pretty serious relationship.

My books are fun and flirty, and feature smart and sassy sleuths. If you love books with a dash of spice and twist of whodunit, you’re going to love my work!
