September! It is finally here! Why is it finally here you ask? Well, there are lots of things but the one I’m most excited for is the release of a new book! Around the end of June I read An Affair to Dismember by Elise Sax and instantly became hooked. My Barnes & Noble emails confirm I read through the 6 books averaging 3 days a piece. Seeing as most good books take me at least twice that should tell you something. On July 19th I pre-ordered the 7th book in the Matchmaker series and it finally gets released this Friday! ?
What is so great about this series by an author you’ve probably never heard of? Great question! Every book in The Matchmaker series is an enticing murder mystery balanced with laugh-out-loud comedy mixed with a little romance. I seriously read each book with a stupid grin on my face accompanied by a wide-eyes like a kid at a candy store.
The main character’s name is Galdie Burger and she moves in with her grandmother to learn to take over her matchmaking business. But Gladie seems to have a knack for stumbling upon murders. She is the kind of girl next door you would want as your best friend. You also would be grateful the embarrassing and awkward things that happen to her don’t happen to you. Her quirks remind me a bit of Mia Thermopolis or Bridget Jones.
I bet you are itching to go start the series right now (as you should be) but in case you want more descriptions, read on.
Book 1 – An Affair to Dismember
Book 2 – Citizen Pain
This town is pretty weird and things start to get bizarre. And that’s not even counting Gladie waking up from anesthesia and finding her dentist dead. The girl also has two men interested in her. Click for Kindle or Nook.
Book 3 – The Wizard of Saws
Book 4 – Field of Screams
Book 5 -From Fear to Eternity
Book 6 – West Side Gory
This book takes place in a ritzy private hospital outside of town. Gladie is prepped for surgery and meets a woman she is later told never existed. She and the hot police chief spend all night gimping in hospital gowns to uncover this mystery. Click for Kindle or Nook.
Book 7 – Scareplane
I don’t think I’ve ever successfully read a book in one sitting. I’ve done it in two shots many times but never one. This weekend might change that!
