Lovably troublesome Gladie Burger runs into sizzling danger and a fiery love triangle in the second installment of Elise Sax s hilarious and sexy Matchmaker romance series.
Since joining the family matchmaking business run by her eccentric Grandma Zelda, Gladie is always looking for love. But when an unbearable toothache knocks her out of commission and into the dentist s chair, she prays only for relief. No such luck. Emerging from an anesthetic haze, Gladie awakes to find that not only is her tooth still throbbing, but her dentist is dead and the lead suspect in the murder, office receptionist Belinda, just so happens to be Gladie s first real client. Now it s up to Gladie to find Belinda a man and keep her from being locked up behind bars.
As if that weren t enough distraction, two gorgeous men are vying for Gladie s attention: Spencer, the playboy chief of police, and Holden, Gladie s secretive, gorgeously muscled neighbor. Still, Gladie s not complaining about having a helping hand or two when the case leads her to a dangerously bizarre cult. She may have met her match and if she s not careful, it could be her last.
Praise for Elise Sax and Matchpoint

Elise Sax will win your heart. New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis
With quirky characters reminiscent of Janet Evanovich s Stephanie Plum series and a small-town heroine redolent of Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse, Sax s second Matchmaker novel will no doubt delight fans and new readers alike. With its charming cast and an intriguing mystery, this fast-paced, zany story provides great fun and features some impressive ingenuity. The love triangle woven into the plot adds an amusing diversion to the main story and will keep readers gleefully trying to guess whodunit. RT Book Reviews

Sax s second novel is a fun, funny romp of a mystery mixed with a sexy love triangle. Gladie is an endearing mess of a character, and the book is fast-paced and amusing, with a large cast of quirky, small-town characters that flesh out a well-crafted, entertaining storyline. A lighthearted and amusing caper with a sexy side order of romance. Kirkus Reviews

A cheeky series that has plenty of romantic complications, danger and humor to keep pages going! The Parkersburg News and Sentinel

Elise Sax will make you laugh. Her larger-than-life characters jump off the page and make crazy seem like a fun place to hang out. New York Times bestselling author Christie Craig"
