An Affair to Dismember by Elise Sax


http://elisesax.com/



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 headwith 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 pursuedeither by true love or by a murderer. Who will catch her first?

This book is absolutely 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 trying to bring couples together and also having to solve a murder mystery. This is definitely 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.
