Description
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.

        Fun and frivolity follow hopeless matchmaker Gladie Burger in Sax's second Matchmaker mystery (after An Affair to Dismember). Gladie has a new reason to fear the dentist: she awakens from a gas-filled stupor to find Dr. Simon Dulur murdered and missing his face. The suspect list includes the late doctor's receptionist, Belinda Womble; the buoyant and Botoxed hygienist, Holly; the wacky cult that has invaded the small town of Cannes, Calif.; and a great many others. Matchmaking becomes a distant focus with a murderer on the loose. Gladie's ever-elusive hunky neighbor, Arthur Holden, is still an enigma, while the sexy, womanizing police chief, Spencer Bolton, is making himself readily available whether she likes it or not. Sax does push some gags into almost eye-rolling overkill, but she can still be depended on for large laughs and enjoyable reads.

        When Gladie Burger accepts her next matchmaking client, it leads her into another murder mystery, a strange cult overtaking her small town and deepening confusion in her love life. Ostensibly a matchmaker-in-training under her successful grandmother, Gladie Burger has the habit of falling into murder mysteries alongside her matchmaking tasks. When Gladie agrees to meet a potential client at the dental office where she works, Gladie winds up unconscious in a dental chair in the middle of a murder scene, waking to a gruesomely dead dentist, blood everywhere and no memory of the incident. Suspicion first lands on Gladie, then on her client, Belinda, and Gladie decides to get to the bottom of the incident to clear them both without a shadow of a doubt. As she follows the clues, she is discouraged from her quest by both her mysterious next-door neighbor, who has a few secrets of his own, and by the supersexy police chief, who has decided to hide out from an angry group of jilted women in Gladie's house. Meanwhile, an odd group of cultists have taken up camp/residence in the town, layer after layer of bad news is showing up about the dead dentist--providing a number of townsfolk with good motives for murder--and Gladie must get to the truth before she becomes the next victim. Sax's second novel is a fun, funny romp of a mystery mixed with a sexy love triangle. Gladie is an endearing mess of a character, and the book is fast-paced and amusing, with a large cast of quirky, small-town characters that flesh out a well-crafted, entertaining storyline. A lighthearted and amusing caper with a sexy side order of romance.
