Matchpoint by Elise Sax

Elise Sax worked as a journalist for fifteen years, mostly in Paris, France. She took a detour from journalism and became a private investigator before trying her hand at writing fiction. She lives in Southern California with her two sons. An Affair to Dismember, the first in the Matchmaker mystery series, is her first novel.

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.

“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

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.

Q) What inspired you to write this story?
MATCHPOINT is the second book in the Matchmaker series. I couldn’t wait to continue Gladie’s story and the story of all the characters in the town of Cannes, California.

Q) How long did it take you to write? 
A full year! The longest time of any book I’ve written. I had a lot going on in my life during the writing.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing? 
Getting those pesky stories that won’t leave me alone, rambling around in my brain, down on paper.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing? 
Getting those pesky stories that won’t leave me alone, rambling around in my brain, down on paper. Seriously, writing is HARD.

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
Good question! I don’t know. But it would be somebody happy, rich, and without cellulite.

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
I don’t know because I’m overseas, traveling for the entire summer. I cleaned out my fridge before I left town. Now, I’m worried I left some stinky cheese or fish in there. Uh oh. [bites lower lip]

But usually, it’s pickles. I seem to buy a lot of pickles and then not eat them.

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
I hope they can expect the rest of the Matchmaker series and loads more books to come! I have a lot of stories to write. And I hope readers enjoy them. That’s the most important thing for me.
