Road rage, rednecks and romance. Solve this twisty mystery before you die laughing!
Being jobless and divorced at age forty-five is bad enough. But when Val Fremden’s only friend in the world ends up dead, it’s hard not to think the world’s out to get her.
Maybe it is….
The sugar-white sands of St. Pete Beach attract weirdos like mosquitoes to a bug zapper. So when the will of Val’s friend is announced in the paper, loonies scramble out of their beach shacks vying for a piece of the leftover pie.
Determined to find her friend’s true heir, Val reluctantly turns to three crackpots for help – a drunk, a redneck, and a snarky beach bum. Working at odds with each other, their bumbling investigation attracts the attention of a hot cop. He quickly gets into the fray and under Val’s skin. Whether it’s in a good way or bad only time will tell.
If you love funny, hard-to-solve mysteries that put gaffs over gore and laughs over legalese, the Val Fremden Mystery Series is for you! Part Bridget Jones, part My Name is Earl, each book in the series is packed with crazy characters, zingy dialogue, hilarious similes and rip-roaring situational humor, making them a laugh a minute!
Often compared by readers to Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, Margaret Lashley’s character, Val Fremden, is a bit older, a tad more jaded, and a ton more experienced in big-time failure. Life’s been tough for Val. Still, she always manages to find her way with sardonic humor and an intrepid spirit. A gin and tonic now and then helps, too.
Life’s a beach and then you die. If you’re ready for a good laugh and a great mystery, check out Glad One and its crazy cast of characters today!
