Publisher's Summary

Best seller in eight mystery and humor categories!

Rednecks, romance, and a last shot at redemption. Solve this twisty mystery before you die laughing! 

After being duped out of her life savings in Germany, Val Fremden retreats home to Florida with more than just her pride in tatters. Broke, jobless, divorced, and 45, she knows starting over won’t be easy. But when her only friend suddenly turns up dead, Val begins to 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 scuffling 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.... 

Love your mysteries with a side of snide? Get set for a heaping helping of Southern-fried screwball action in this hilarious accidental thriller! Grab your copy now! 

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! 

Like many listeners, 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, hot 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 and its crazy cast of characters today. Funny Florida mysteries don't get any wackier! 

Amazon number one best seller in Amateur Sleuths, Cozy Mystery, Humor & Satire, Women's Detective Fiction, Comedy, Humorous Dark Comedy, Men, Women & Relationships Humor, and Love, Sex & Marriage Humor! 

PS: If you love humorous, pause-resisting mysteries like those by Deborah Brown, Lucy Quinn, Tricia O'Malley, Gemma Halliday, Karen Cantwell, Tara Sivec, Liliana Hart, Libby Howard, Chelsea Field, Jana Deleon, Gina LaManna, Janet Evanovich, Denise Grover Swank, Amy Vansant, and Stephanie Bond, you just might love Glad One, too!

Love..

Enjoyed this audiobook immensely! I didn’t check the release date, but I do know for certain that this Glad was was a perfect listen - and reminder to be grateful and Glad for those blessings you have and are - during this sh*tpocalypse that has been 2020. Please bring all the Glads to audibles! I’ve fallen in love, but due to an inner ear disease called Ménière’s, audible books are how I read 🤷🏼‍♀️

A of Breath Florida Air

I really liked this book. Glad One was interesting and fun. The characters were very likable, and I felt like I was there with them. I didn't know how it was going to end until the very last minute, except who the murderer was. I hope another audible comes out soon.

Just couldn't connect to this one.

I have really enjoyed Margaret Lashley's series featuring Bobby Drex. For some reason, I had trouble connecting with this one. I will be reading the second book to make sure.

Not for me

I tried to listen but kept fast forwarding. The story doesn't make since and I don't like the characters.
