Gladie Burger has
never stayed at a job for more than three months. That is
…until now. Her Grandma Zelda who owns and runs a matchmaking
agency has convinced Gladie to become her partner since she
isn’t getting any younger. Grandma Zelda is positive
that Gladie has the “gift”. Gladie is now a matchmaker-in
Gladie goes out on a lunch run and in the
process saves an owl, gets stuck on a telephone pole and loses
her pants. She is now the pin-up girl for both the Police
and Fire Departments! It doesn’t hurt that one of her
admirers is the new Police Chief Spenser Bolton.
While Gladie can’t figure out how to
make her ”gift” work – she seems determined
to figure out who murdered Randy Terns. Could it be her “gift”
is not matchmaking but solving crimes?
Things to ponder: How did Randy Terns die?
Will Gladie find her true ”gift”? With all those
hunky guys in town – will Gladie make her own match?
This was such a fun read. I really just wanted
to see what escapades Gladie would continuously get herself
into. Ok… some were not her fault. Elise Sax has written
a book that invites you right in to read with open arms. I
know some might consider this a romance – but with dead
bodies showing up periodically – I think of this as
a cozy romantic mystery. This is one book that will put you
in a good mood, while trying to keep up with the antics of
Gladie and her crew.
