Three months has been Gladie Burger’s limit when it comes to staying in one place: She’s always been a temp agency kind of girl, ever ready to move on. That’s why Gladie is more than a little skeptical when her eccentric Grandma Zelda recruits her to the family business in the quaint small town of Cannes, California. Gladie is also highly unqualified: Her beloved grandmother’s business is matchmaking, and Gladie has a terrible track record with romance. Still, despite evidence to the contrary, Zelda is convinced that her granddaughter has “the gift.” But when the going gets tough, Gladie wonders if this gift has a return policy.
When Zelda’s neighbor drops dead in his kitchen, Gladie is swept into his bizarre family’s drama. Despite warnings from the (distractingly gorgeous) chief of police to steer clear of his investigation, Gladie is out to prove that her neighbor’s death was murder. It’s not too long before she’s in way over her head—with the hunky police chief, a dysfunctional family full of possible killers, and yet another mysterious and handsome man, whose attentions she’s unable to ignore. Gladie is clearly being pursued—either by true love or by a murderer. Who will catch her first?
We all know I don’t read lovey dovey books. I don’t even know how this got on my Kindle. But I liked the title so I read it.
I love Gladie and her grandmother! Grandma has the best advice I’ve ever heard and Gladie has inherited her matchmaking and murder solving skills.
So when the man from the oddball family across the street drops dead, Gladie promises the mans weirdo family she will look into it.
This was the funniest book! At one point I believe Gladie says one of the guys is like the Al Queda of penises. And she isn’t going anywhere near that.
All in all it was a fun read with some really funny characters!
