Matchpoint, By Elise Sax


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.

 

Crystal’s Review:

I am unsure as to what exactly this book was about.  Is it about her being a matchmaker or a wanna be private eye?  It seemed like it went back and forth between the two during the course of this book.

I think that this is the second book in the series, at least I hope so because if it wasn’t then there was a lot that the author left out in the open.  Gladie’s character seemed to not be complete in my opinion.  I was left wanting more from her during the course of the book.  She just felt incomplete to me.  I was really confused about the ‘love triangle’ that was taking place as well.

The other characters in the book you were left wondering what exactly their role in the book was about.  Were they put in there so they could have more focus in future books?  Or just as comic relief during the course of this book?

All in all, while this book was different, it just left me wanting more than what was given.
