4 out of 5 Stars
Perfect for fans of Janet Evanovich, Jennifer Crusie, and Katie MacAlister, Elise Sax’s wickedly funny Matchmaker series proves that the road to love comes with a few dead ends.

Five months have passed since Gladie Burger came to Cannes, California, to join her eccentric Grandma Zelda in the family matchmaking business, and Gladie is quickly mastering the rules of attraction. Her latest fix-up is still going strong and Gladie’s bank account is back in the black—until a rival matchmaker arrives in town and has both Gladie and Zelda seeing red.

Not only is self-proclaimed psychic Luanda Laughing-Eagle stealing Grandma Zelda’s clients, but Zelda is convinced that Luanda’s ESP is total BS. She tasks Gladie with exposing Luanda as a fraud, but Gladie’s attention is diverted when murder comes a-calling. Spencer Bolton, the gorgeous chief of police and Gladie’s on-again, off-again flame, wants her to stay out of the investigation—and away from the deliciously chiseled detective who also aims to win Gladie’s heart. But the one thing Gladie’s learned is that in business, love and murder . . . it’s always personal.
  Love Game is the third book in The Matchmaker series by Elise Sax, and if you're new to the series don't read this as a standalone, the other books are just as funny so save a step and start at the beginning. If you like your mysteries with a bit of romance and lots of laughs then you are bound to love this series. Elise Sax does a great job at writing quirky characters that will make you laugh out loud, and her stories are definitely interesting and memorable.
  As usual Gladie stumbles upon a murder case and does her best to solve it, all while finding herself in strange, dangerous, and often hilarious situations. I found myself smiling and laughing throughout a good bit of this book.
  I think that the only reason I didn't enjoy this book quite as much as the last two was that Gladie simply has way too many irons in the fire. I'm all for a good love triangle, if it's done right, but I've been dying for Gladie to get with Spencer since the very first book! And now she has three different possible love interests: Spencer, Holden, and now Remington too. I was about to go crazy with frustration throughout this book, and I'm hoping that her man drama is at least narrowed down in the next book. I did however thoroughly enjoy this story, and am anxiously awaiting the next installment in The Matchmaker series.
