    Totally a five star book. Bad things first. Her dress is the wro

    Totally a five star book. Bad things first. Her dress is the wrong color. She doesn't have sex. And the best storyline in the book doesn't finish.
    Good things. It is freakin' hilarious!!! Its a fun mystery. Crazy characters. There are no boring slow times. The mystery is an interesting one. The crazy and the hot are all terrific characters. I cannot imagine how Elise will keep up this pace.
    I really enjoyed this read.
    Only a couple of fun quotes.
    "He had me there. I was a big fat liar with my pants on fire."
    "I felt his breath on the back of my neck and right there and then, I began to ovulate."
    I really enjoyed this story.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book




    This was a most amazing and amusing book and I decided I had to share it with everyone. I love getting in on the beginning of a new series, especially one that has all the elements I love: mystery and romance with a little bit of humor thrown in. Reading this one gave me a nice case of the warm fuzzies and I’m hoping to pass them along…




    Gladie is a character made just for me. She’s in her late twenties but has no direction in her life (neither did I at that age). Since most romance novels tend to feature their female leads as strong and career-oriented (lawyers, chefs, doctors – all those jobs that take training and career planning), I’ve always had a hard time identifying with them. Now I’m given a woman with no long-term goals, where three weeks in one job is deemed a lifetime, and who faints at the sight of blood. She’s moved into her grandmother’s house and is training to take over the matchmaking business and before long has two handsome men interested in her well-being. Let’s not forget the way her eyes dilate when she sees Spencer, the hot new police chief in town, and Holden, the handsome new next-door neighbor with the mysterious background (and what great names are those, huh?). Hubba, hubba.




    Within the space of one week, Gladie is stuck on a telephone pole, kidnapped, threatened, steals a police car, finds a dead body, gets shot at, and gets kissed by the dreamy neighbor. Like I said, I love getting in on a new series – and this one promises to be a doozy!

    Funny! Can't wait for the next one!

    One of the best books I've read. Hysterical! Janet Evanovich has some stiff competition. I love the humor mixed in the relationship. This is an author I will automatically purchase every time.

    Oh my gosh how funny and wonderfully entertaining is this book. Pages 70-74 are writing genus.
    It was uncontrollable laughter of the best kind. I love Gladie and her dealings with Spencer, now he is all together
    Something else and what about Holden, the "guy next door"? Good mystery as well. Loved the book and looking forward to 
    Reading the next one and more from this author.

    This is the first book in the Matchmaker Series by Elise Sax.  I

    This is the first book in the Matchmaker Series by Elise Sax.  I was intrigued when I saw the first book, enough so that I was thrilled to be part of the Bewitching Book Tour for Matchpoint, the second book in the series.  This gave me the push to move An Affair to Dismember to the top of my TBR pile.

    The story opens with Gladys "Gladie" Burger going through her grandmother's attic office, researching and updating Zelda's Matchmaking Services records.  Zelda, Gladie's eccentric grandmother, had called Gladie home to the small mountain town of Cannes, California three months prior to join the matchmaking business. Zelda assures Gladie that she has the gift to be a matchmaker.  Since Gladie has spent the last 10 years going from job to job across the country every few months, it didn't take much for her to decide to move back home.  As of the beginning of the book, Gladie has been in training for about 3 months, has yet to make 1 match and has gotten a little to comfortable in her role as her grandmother's trainee.

    All that is about to change however.  Starting with her climbing a telephone pole to rescue an owl, getting stuck and showing off her pink Victoria's secret boy shorts underpants to what feels like the entire police force and fire department of Cannes when they come to rescue her. It is here that she meets the Chief of Police and hottie, Spencer.  Later that day Gladie finds out that the house next to her grandmother's has been sold to a wealthy, single mysterious man named Holden.  Add to that, some how Gladie has gotten sucked into "looking into" the death of the across the street neighbor Randy Terns.

    This book was a hilarious mix of misunderstandings, miscommunication, misdirection and mistaken identity. It felt like a cross between a Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum and Toni McGee Causey's Bobby Faye  - basically laugh out loud action from start to finish.  If you don't find yourself laughing during this book, you might want to get you sense of humor checked.  I had to give this book 5 stars on Goodreads.

    Some awesome lines!

    I absolutely loved this book! Some of the descriptions cracked me up to the point I had to share quotes from the book to others. I like that the main character is still trying to figure things out with some thoroughly hilarious situations and experiences coming at her. The characters are well developed, relatable, and I'm so hooked that I have to start the next book tonight to see how their lives are unfolding after the conclusion of this book. I have a new favorite author to follow now.

    This book is absoultely thrilling! I could not put it down, and

    This book is absoultely thrilling! I could not put it down, and wow was there a lot of twist and turns. Who would have thought that a born matchmaker who has commitment issues be able to handle tryng to bring couples together and also having to solve a murder mystery. This is definately a series I am going to be sinking my teeth into. Gladie is one interesting girl and it will be interesting to see who she is going to pick...the hunky police chief or the mysterious man next door.
