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....

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.

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!
