Summary

They say three’s a charm. But charming isn’t Val’s style.

Val Fremden is a lot of things. Quirky. Jaded. Disaster-prone—to name a few. 

But more than anything, she’s afraid of commitment. 

So it's no wonder that when boyfriend Tom tells her he loves her, Val plays it cool. But when he accidently hauls her mom’s ashes to a junkyard, Val loses it like Chernobyl 2.0...

On the warpath with Tom, Val turns to her wacko, low-rent friends to help track down her mom’s cremains. But three botched stakeouts and two disasters later, she still hasn't got peanuts. Through trial (but mostly error), Val discovers it's not easy to outwit a mobile master of disguise while driving around a paddy-wagon full of nutcases.

She loves Tom...she loves him not. Knowing Val, she’s gonna need a bigger flower….

Three Dumb is a satirical look at how life, over time, changes our perception of love and the things we value. It’s told through the eyes of a snarky, middle-aged woman with legendary commitment issues and a gnawing reluctance toward romance. 

If you like deeply flawed characters and laugh-out-loud situations, you’ll love Three Dumb. It’s the third book in Lashley’s hilarious, irreverent Val Fremden Midlife Mysteries series. It’s seriously funny women’s fiction at its best!

P.S. If you love humorous, riveting mysteries like those by Deborah Brown, Julie Mulhern, 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 the Val Fremden Midlife Mysteries, too!

First two better

This time Margaret Lashley relied too heavily on making fun of people and expressing disparaging opinions about weight and social class distinctions. I wasn’t amused. I finished thinking maybe that somehow Val was supposed to learn some kind of life lesson and emerge a kinder less judgmental person but no.

Potty humor misses the mark!

I was really trying to get through this series. As as someone who is in midlife and is female... I thought I would be the target audience. But the constant talk of butts, poop and farts makes it more fit for a 12 year old boy. I gave up after a couple hours of #3.
