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.

  Matchpoint is the fantastic follow-up to An Affair to Dismember. The book had a great mystery, that kept me guessing at the identity of the murderer. The romance was hot without taking over the whole story, and the quirky humorous had me laughing out loud.
  The story follows Glacier Burger as she is once again caught in the middle of murderer mystery, when she wakes up from sedation to find her dentist has been murdered while she was out. Even though poor Glacier tries to keep out of it, it's hard for her to do when everyone keeps pulling her back into it. The quirky characters that I've come to love and their crazy antics made this a very fun read.
  I liked this one even more than the first one, and that's saying a lot because I thoroughly enjoyed the first one. Elise Sax has a diehard fan in me, because her books have all of the things that I really enjoy in a good book. The characters are memorable, the romance superb, and her writings are anything but predictable. I'm looking forward to reading many more from her.
