Perfect for fans of Janet Evanovich, Jennifer Crusie, and Katie MacAlister, Elise Sax’s wickedly funny Matchmaker series proves that the road to love comes with a few dead ends.
Five months have passed since Gladie Burger came to Cannes, California, to join her eccentric Grandma Zelda in the family matchmaking business, and Gladie is quickly mastering the rules of attraction. Her latest fix-up is still going strong and Gladie’s bank account is back in the black—until a rival matchmaker arrives in town and has both Gladie and Zelda seeing red.
Not only is self-proclaimed psychic Luanda Laughing-Eagle stealing Grandma Zelda’s clients, but Zelda is convinced that Luanda’s ESP is total BS. She tasks Gladie with exposing Luanda as a fraud, but Gladie’s attention is diverted when murder comes a-calling. Spencer Bolton, the gorgeous chief of police and Gladie’s on-again, off-again flame, wants her to stay out of the investigation—and away from the deliciously chiseled detective who also aims to win Gladie’s heart. But the one thing Gladie’s learned is that in business, love and murder . . . it’s always personal.
I love reading the Matchmaker series so much. They have so much comedy that it makes the read so much quicker. Also, they have mystery and romance that it makes a perfect combination. I love how quirky and cute Gladie is. She is so cute but she always end up in all of the town murder mystery. However, her love is gone for several months, but that does not stop her from catching some attention from the sheriff and the new person in town. Gladie is definitely knows how to solve the mystery no matter what the sheriff says. Also, I just love it when Gladie gets another attention from a new hottie in town. However, I just want Gladie pick someone already since she deserve happiness with one of the guys. There is definitely some major things happen toward the end of the story that the next book is going to be major.
