Please welcome author Elise Sax to RFTC. With the upcoming release of her book, Matchpoint, Elise has stopped by to chat.

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, the first in the Matchmaker mystery series, is her first novel.

Hello! Thank you so such much for spotlighting Matchpoint. I hope you enjoy the second installment of the Matchmaker Series. I really enjoyed writing this book...The scary murder mystery, the ramped-up sexual tension between Gladie and her two suitors, and a town gone crazy over the invasion of a group of doomsday, alien worshipers. There are some answers in there, too, not only the whodunnit, but also about the mysterious Holden and Gladie's heart. All that and hunky Spencer eating chips in bed and a donkey that flies. I hope you enjoy it! Don't hesitate to contact me with questions or comments.

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.

“Elise Sax will make you laugh. Her larger-than-life characters jump off the page and make crazy seem like a fun place to hang out.”—New York Times bestselling author Christie Craig

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.

“You have to get back to work. There's been a heinous murder, and there's a murder victim who no longer has a face. Spencer, there's a face wandering around out there. If you don't get back to work, there's no hope that the murder will be solved.”

Spencer's color returned, and his smirk returned. “Pinkie, you complimented me,” he said. “I might pass out from shock.”

I squirmed in my seat. “I didn't compliment you. I merely pointed out that you are the least incompetent of your police force. That's not saying a lot.”

“You complimented me. You said I could solve the No- Face Case.”

“Shut up.”

“You can't take it back now,” he said, interlocking his fingers behind his head. “Okay, so I'm a great cop. Tell me how sexy I am. Tell me you want me.”

“You are not sexy, and I don't want you,” I lied.

“You're almost naked. When you bend down, I can see the whole triple play. It's only a hiccup to a grand-slam home run. Just say the word, and I'll come up to bat.”

“You gross me out.”

Spencer leaned forward, studied my face for a moment, read something there, and then popped a Dorito into his mouth. “You can't blame a guy for trying,” he said.

“Focus on your work, dammit. The town is going to pieces, and there's a face out there. Why isn't anybody impressed by the face?”
