She eloped with Bigfoot. Or maybe Bigfoot kidnapped her. Either way, I've been hired to uncover the truth behind Cindy Funk's disappearance. Me? I'm Floyd, and I'm a PI living my life as Elvis would have wanted. Not just in sequined jumpsuits. With character.

Cindy's trail leads me to River City, Oregon—aka the Mythical Creature Capital of the World—where I catch Case #2. T

If you’re like me, that catchy title, Bigfoot Blues, and the awesome cover art caught your attention.

In the beginning….

Floyd, the P.I., kisses his girlfriend goodbye, her beard tickling his face. What?!

Now he’s off to make a quick buck. It should be an easy case. Mr. Funk wants him to find his missing daughter. She went to River City, Oregon and wasn’t seen again. Her parents finally received a letter from her stating that she was eloping with Bigfoot and not to worry about her. Yep, you read it

I find it hard to believe cryptotaxidermy exists, at least outside of Etsy. I had to look it up. It does exist. It’s an actual thing. Which almost makes it unique in a book centered around the search for both Sasquatch and the chupacabra.

Floyd (no last name) is a completely likeable character who has given his life over to Elvis. I like that he is not an impersonator, even cringes at the thought of Elvis tribute

Floyd--no last name needed, thank you--has chosen to live his life the way he believes Elvis would want him to live, using WWED (what would Elvis do) as his guiding principle. Although this is the second book in the series, I had no problem knowing what was going on without having read the first book.

This book is just plain fun. If you can suspend believability, and accept chupacabras, a bride of Bigfoot, and a load of other crazy characters, then this book--and this series--will be perfect for

Funny, clever book! I had actual LOL moments. Very light hearted, humorous mystery story that kept me turning pages. I'm a big Elmore Leonard fan and these books kind of remind me of his novels. ...more

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Bigfoot Blues is an amusing tale with colorful characters. If you like oddballs, this is a story you should check out. It’s very original.

The main character, Lloyd, lives his life as he believes Elvis would, which he refers to as the “Elvis Lifestyle.” He dresses in jumpsuits and tries to be kind and patient. His main squeeze is a bearded lady. His sidekick is a little person with a bad

I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I want to rate it between 3.5 and 3.8
It was fun, far fetched, and very bizarre. Read it totally for an escape from reality.

A bearded women, a midget/dwarf/little person, a P.I. who has been wearing Elvis copy jumpsuits since age 6 and believes Elvis provides the answers to the perfect way of life...throw in some crazy critter creations and the country's most inept sheriff's department -- did I mention Bigfoot?

Bigfoot Blues starts off running. So much so that I quickly looked to see if I had dropped into the middle of a serial. It is the second book in a series and although I initially felt like I was being dumped into the middle of an ongoing story, I quickly got into it. This novel is lots of fun. Although the mystery itself isn’t really all the difficult to solve, there are a few twists and turns the average reader doesn’t expect. But really the reason to read this book has nothing to do with the m ...more

Loved it! I might have a soft spot for quirky mysteries that involve taxidermy - alright, I've only read 2, but both were great. Bigfoot Blues is the second in the series, and it works fine on its own, but honestly I'd suggest reading Elvis Sightings first. I read this one first and liked it so much I had to go back and get #1 anyway.

This is just a flat-out fun, quick read. Crazy characters, an evil corporation, mythical monsters. I will say you have to just relax and go with it. When you have a

Bigfoot Blues by Ricardo Sanchez is a funny, quirky cozy mystery. Bigfoot Blues stars (and is narrated by) Floyd (no last name, because it's unpronounceable), a private investigator in Pocatello, Idaho who is such a big fan of Elvis that he is doing the Lifestyle Elvis thing. Floyd seems to be more into the Elvis lifestyle than Elvis himself was, in that Floyd wears flashy sequined jumpsuits all the time — sometimes with capes, even! (Didn't Elvis save the sequins and capes for his performances? ...more

Bigfoot Blues (An Elvis Sightings Mystery) by Ricardo Sanchez is hilarious. It was a laugh out loud book that was entertaining and read in one sitting.

Floyd, the private investigator is back as an Elvis lifestyle emulator, not an impersonator. He leaves behind his bearded girlfriend, Wanda, but she's never out of mind. In this book his rhinestone jumpsuits take abuse, some never to recover.

Sadly, it needs editing for typos and homonyms. Because of this, I gave it four stars. That does not reflec

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review**
Floyd is a PI. He shares an office with Franklin, a chiropractor. Originally Franklin's wife sent him looking for Franklin four years ago. She was such a nasty person, even after finding him he didn't turn in his location. Since then he was able to use Franklin's office rent free. Floyd came to the office to meet Peter Funk, who needed his 18yr old daughter found. He said she ran off to elope with Bigfoot.
