Today, I get to feature Elise Sax and her newest book in The Matchmaker Series, MATCHPOINT! Elise has kindly consented to writing a guest post, too!
An Affair to Dismember
Book One of the Matchmaker Series
Three months has been Gladie Burger's limit when it comes to staying in one place: She's always been a temp agency kind of girl, ever ready to move on. That's why Gladie is more than a little skeptical when her eccentric Grandma Zelda recruits her to the family business in the quaint small town of Cannes, California. Gladie is also highly unqualified: Her beloved grandmother's business is matchmaking, and Gladie has a terrible track record with romance. Still, despite evidence to the contrary, Zelda is convinced that her granddaughter has "the gift." But when the going gets tough, Gladie wonders if this gift has a return policy.
When Zelda's neighbor drops dead in his kitchen, Gladie is swept into his bizarre family's drama. Despite warnings from the (distractingly gorgeous) chief of police to steer clear of his investigation, Gladie is out to prove that her neighbor's death was murder. It's not too long before she's in way over her head—with the hunky police chief, a dysfunctional family full of possible killers, and yet another mysterious and handsome man, whose attentions she's unable to ignore. Gladie is clearly being pursued—either by true love or by a murderer. Who will catch her first?
Book Two of the Matchmaker Series
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 manand 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.

And now...from Elise!
In MATCHPOINT, the second book of my Matchmaker series, all hell breaks loose. Literally. I mean, there’s a cult, a flying donkey, a grisly murder, and love.
Love’s good, but don’t be fooled: It’s just as dangerous as flying donkeys. Love can lobotomize you quicker than an ice pick. Love can empty your bank account, turn you into a drooling idiot, and basically ruin your life.
But love is so good. It’s pretty much worth it getting lobotomized just for that wonderful feeling of loving and being loved. Have you ever been in love and later thought: What was I thinking?
Yeah, me, too, but during the moment, it’s sooo good.
The main character in MATCHPOINT is Gladie Burger, and she’s in the love business. People come to her because they don’t want the pain of love. They only want it to work, to find the right one, have the committed relationship, and sail off into the sunset forever. That’s Gladie’s job. Not too easy.
In fact, Gladie’s discovered that she’s much better at the murder business. That is, solving murders. But she’s not giving up with love because she wants to help people.
Of course, she could use some help, herself. I’m not going to tell you if she finds love for herself or not (you have to read the series!), but she gives it a try. She’s helpless to stop herself. She would have better luck stop a flying donkey.
