Glad One: Starting Over is a ...! (Val & Pals Book 2)
Margaret Lashley, author
How Many Do-Overs Do You Get in One Lifetime? One crazy old lady. Two gin and tonics. Three derelict beach-bum friends. Will Val’s fourth stab at starting over add up to a big fat zero? St. Pete Beach attracts weirdos like mosquitoes to a bug zapper. But when broke, divorced Val feels the tug to fly back to her old stomping grounds, she finds everyone and everything she knew squashed under the heels of change. With nothing to go on but her own dry sense of humor and the life coach advice of a beer-guzzling old lady she meets at the beach, can her life get any more bizarre? Glad One is a satirical look at divorce, single-hood and climbing back up the social ladder, told through the eyes of a snarky, reluctant, mid-forties woman who took her chances and lost everything…but regained herself. Is there a light at the end of the tunnel for Val? Or is it just the headlamps of a future train wreck? Knowing Val, it’s probably both. If you like wacky, deeply flawed characters and laugh-out-loud situations, you’ll love Glad One! It’s the second book in Margaret Lashley’s irreverent Val & Pals Series.
