A Midlife Meltdown Leads to Southern-Fried Mayhem in this Hilarious Accidental Thriller!
After being duped out of her life savings in Germany, Val Fremden retreats home to Florida with more than just her pride in tatters. At 45, she’s broke, divorced, and virtually unemployable. Starting over will be tough enough as it is. But when her only friend suddenly turns up dead, Val begins to seriously wonder if the world is out to get her.
Maybe it is ….
The sugar-white sands of Sunset Beach attract weirdos like mosquitoes to a bug zapper. So when the will of Val’s friend makes the local newspaper, lunatics and con artists stumble from their beach shacks to scuffle 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. Because sometimes, it’s not until you reach the bottom of the barrel that you find out who your true friends are.
Love your mysteries with a side of snide? The Val Fremden Midlife Mysteries are for you! Get set for a wickedly witty slide down the social ladder with a surprising cast of unexpected misfits!
If you love Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum or Jana Deleon's Fortune Redding, you'll probably find yourself resonating with Val Fremden, too. She's a lovable, bungling mess who's 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. Funny Florida mysteries don't get any wackier—or truly heartfelt.

What Readers are Saying about Glad One:

- "Margaret writes with a "smirk" of a Cheshire cat. Fantastic read.”
- “I loved every line of this book!”
- “I have no idea how the author is able to write (about) trauma in a way that is also hopeful and uplifting. Whatever it is, it is beautiful.”

- "Full of twists and turns as only Margaret Lashley can write!"
- “The characters are great – so many laugh out loud moments…”
