ARC REVIEW: An Affair to Dismember


Mystery rom-coms aren’t really my thing.  They’re alright for some people.  But I usually don’t like a dead body taking time away from a love match.  But An Affair to Dismember is so delightfully funny in distracting me from not getting what I usually expect, I don’t mind one bit.  The publisher’s describe it this way “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.”.  Grandma Zelda, Gladie, and the cast of characters in Cannes, California make for a very interesting and action packed novel. There’s the hot-as-hell Police Chief, the sexy new neighbor, the clumsy rookie cop who happens to dance as gracefully as Fred Astaire (his namesake), the cafe owner who’s obsessed with teas, and the crazy family no one in the town likes.  And the bodies are piling up.  And it’s up to Gladie and the Police Chief to figure it out.  Since this is a light mystery rom-com, you know they figure it out.  It’s also the first book in a new series called The Matchmaker Series.  So Gladie’s romantic life is only teased here.  Elise Sax’s writing moves at a nice clip, and she makes sure to keep you engaged every step of the way.  This is definitely chick lit worth reading.
