Meet Dianne Selchert

The hardest day of my life was retiring from my passion, which was teaching. I couldn’t have chosen a more rewarding career. I enjoy sharing with others, and in my retirement I have found another way to do that. My mind is full of ideas, and I have begun to create stories from those ideas. I love to write, spinning in tidbits of my own life on the South Dakota prairie into my books. Of course, I’ll never reveal which parts are purely fictitious and which parts are not!

Meet Luisa Marietta Gold

Luisa Marietta Gold spent much of her adult life in Pennsylvania working for a large corporation. After her daughter was born, she relocated to North Carolina and began working as a Realtor while operating a recreational business with her husband. Her current home is near a lake reminiscent of the Rideau Lakes, which provided the setting for The Osprey Cove Lodge Series. The series was born from her love of that region of Canada, the outdoors, and lake life. Many years were spent enjoying the Rideau, staying in lodges, and for a time, her own cottage. Among her interests are swimming, painting, cooking, baking, and of course, writing and storytelling. But it’s the simple things of life that bring the most enjoyment, like the beauty of the trees outside the window of her writing room as they change with the seasons, watching the sunrise and sunset, and being entertained by her kitties as they interact and play. Many of these interests and life experiences are woven into the pages of her books.

“Elise Sax will win your heart.”—New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis

My name’s Gladie Burger, and my Grandma Zelda says that I have “The Gift.” That means that I’m going to be a great matchmaker, and it probably means that I can know things that can’t be known.

Just like my grandma.

She knows who should be matched with who, and she also knows what the weather’s going to be weeks in advance. Some people call that a Third Eye. Some people call it psychic. Some people call it weird.

I’m betting Grandma is wrong. The only “gift” I’ve had in my life is not being able to hold down a job. I might have a commitment problem.

But I’m helping her out in the matchmaking business, anyway. So far, I haven’t made a match, and now after our neighbor across the street fell, hit his head, and died, I can’t stop thinking that maybe his death was no accident.

Maybe it was murder.

I may have commitment issues, but I seem totally committed to finding out if he was murdered and who murdered him.
The annoying Chief of Police—who unfortunately turns my insides into molten estrogen jelly—thinks I should be committed for sticking my nose in where it doesn’t belong.

Luckily, another neighbor is just as hot as the Chief, and he’s more than happy to support my sleuthing. Ditto my best friends Bridget and Lucy.

It’s a toss-up if I’ll solve this mystery, get killed in the process, get arrested, or find true love.

An Affair to Dismember is the first book in the Matchmaker Mysteries series. It is a humorous and romantic small-town mystery. Matchmaker Mysteries… Sometimes love comes with a few dead ends.
