An Affair to Dismember by Elise Sax

Gladie has moved in with Grandma and intends to take over her match-making business.  She has done quite well with it and Gladie hasn't settled into any particular job, so why not?  Just because she doesn't know how doesn't matter; she can learn.

Ballentine Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this ebook and review it (thank you).  It will be published at the end of the month, so keep an eye out for it at your local bookstore.

Gladie is an interesting main character.  She's stubborn and snoopy, has no love interest, can't get excited about match-making, and is just sorting index cards and trying to make sense about her Grandma's work techniques.  When her neighbor across the street dies, she goes to console the survivors.  When she walks out the door, she's sure it was murder instead of suicide.  Even if the chief of police doesn't agree with her, she's sure and begins looking into the case.

Her potential love life improves when a sexy new guy moves in next door.  It also seems the chief of police thinks she's sexy.  So she goes from no suitors to two! 

The murder mystery was interesting.  It's not a straight road to the answer and the murderer was not someone I suspected.

I'm looking forward to seeing this character again.  She hasn't decided which man she wants and I bet she gets involved in another murder.  Grandma might do match-making; Gladie's instincts seem to be in the investigative line.  Plus she uses some interesting cuss words...

Happy reading.
