Guest Author & Giveaway Featuring Matchmacker series by Elise Sax

Hello friends! Today we have author Elise Sax here with us to celebrate her latest release to her Matchmaker series, Matchpoint! She didn't come alone though, Grandma Zelda from Matchmacker is here to get things revved up! Let's get started!

“Grandma Zelda”
By Elise Sax

Elise: I would like to introduce you to Grandma Zelda. She is the matchmaker with a third eye in my Matchmaker series.

Zelda: Third eye? Oh, no, no, bubeleh, I just know love. What do you know? Are you single?     

Elise: Uh…

Zelda: Because I’m looking at you, dolly, and I’m thinking you could make maybe a good life with a guy I know. What’s your feelings on hunchbacked people?

Elise: Actually, Zelda, I thought we could talk about MATCHPOINT, my book that just came out.

Zelda: Oh, that’s a good one!

Elise: Gee, thanks!

Zelda: Yeah, funny! I laughed out loud when I read it. Except I think you made me fatter than I really am. Can you go back and make me skinnier? Maybe a size 6?

Elise: Well, the book is already out in stores, Zelda. I’m so sorry. Anyway, in MATCHPOINT, Zelda is still training her granddaughter Gladie how to be a matchmaker.

Zelda: That girl has “The gift.”

Elise: Maybe.

Zelda: No, she does. And in MATCHPOINT, she has her very own client. She got her on her own.

Elise: Except her client is a murder suspect.

Zelda: And Gladie’s a murder suspect, too. I wish the good-looking police chief could do something about that, but he’s too busy. Hey, aren’t you supposed to write SPOILER ALERT here or something?

Elise: Oh, yeah. SPOILER ALERT

Zelda: Thanks….maybe he’s too busy hanging out here to do any real police work.

Elise: Men. Sigh.

Zelda: Tell me about it!

Elise: Hey, when you say “hunchback,” how hunchback are you talking about?

Zelda: Come here, bubeleh, and I’ll match you right up.

An Affair to Dismember
Book One of the Matchmaker Series

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 head—with 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 pursued—either by true love or by a murderer. Who will catch her first?


Book Two of the Matchmaker Series

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 manand 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.

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 is her first novel.
