months in her entire life. Her grandmother, Zelda, asks her
to move Cannes and take over her matchmaking business.
Zelda has an uncanny knack for matching people. An amazing
women who never leaves her home, Zelda knows everyone in
town and is always up on the latest news.
Gladys, who prefers to be called Gladie, is trying to
organize her grandmother's business records and wondering
how she will develop the skills to become a matchmaker.
The neighbor across the street has died. Even though it was
declared death from natural causes, there are too many
questions left unanswered. Gladie's instincts along with
some hints from the family have her pursuing all the leads
that come her way.
As she investigates, she meets two exciting men who romance
her. One is the new police chief in town. The other lives
next door to Zelda and is rather mysterious about his life.
Peopled with eccentric and interesting characters, this is a
great start to a new series of mysteries. AN AFFAIR TO
thoroughly entertaining and I look forward to more in the
series. Fans of comedic mysteries will want to pick this
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?
