Matilda Dare can’t sleep. Her insomnia is one more reason to move to the quirky small town of Goodnight, New Mexico after she inherits a house, a small newspaper, and two old dogs there. But despite the Goodnight name, Matilda still spends her nights wide awake, and she has good reason after a reporter is murdered. With a mystery to solve, she begins to investigate the town and uncovers more suspects than she knows what to do with. Meanwhile, the hottie cowboy sheriff is doing his own investigation into Matilda, and the mysterious, handsome stranger, who just happens to live with her, is showing up in all the wrong places. As her investigation continues, danger increases, and it might end up spelling lights out for Matilda.

Die Noon is the first installment in the hilarious, romantic Goodnight Mysteries series and a spinoff of the Matchmaker Mysteries. Goodnight…Sometimes sweet dreams end in murder.

Excerpt:

“They can’t get me,” he told me with earnest glee, as he pushed the button for more morphine. “I’m immortal. Do you know why?”
“No. Why?” I asked.
“Because I’m the press, baby. I’m the First Amendment. I’m democracy and all that’s the best of this wonderful and terrible country of ours. Do you understand?”
No, I didn’t understand at all. One man was dead, and another almost killed. I wasn’t sure that a water rights story involving frackers was worth a life. “I guess so?” I said like a question.
“And that means that you’re immortal, too, boss. You get me? You’re immortal. And now you’re going to be my eyes and ears. My legs, boss. You’re going to be my legs.”
I tried to swallow, but I couldn’t. “I’m not sure I can be your legs,” I said.
“You don’t want to find out who killed Jimmy?” he asked. “You don’t want to find out who tossed me off the roof of Goodnight UFOs?”
“Yes,” I breathed. My pulse began to race, and my breathing grew ragged. I wanted to find that out more than anything. It was like a disease, like a crack addiction, but with me it was simple curiosity. And a matter of justice, too.
Oh my God, Silas was contagious. I had been bitten by the justice bug. I had whodunititis.



 






Even if you have not read the Matchmaker series, from which this is a spin-off, you will find yourself immediately drawn in by the humor, quirkiness, and zany characters in Goodnight, New Mexico.
Matilda Dare had been married to someone she thought was the man of her dreams and discovered herself in a nightmare and a rubber room.
When she inherits a conglomeration of house and newspaper, as well as inheriting two ancient dogs, Matilda has no idea what life has in store for her. She takes this in stride.

Nearly being drowned on her first assignment as a reporter Matilda seems to be living up to her reputation as the loony woman. It also introduces her to Sheriff Amos, one of two men who will further complicate her life. Well, three if you count her main newspaper reporter, Silas. The second man, since I didn't mention this before, is a "roommate" she inherited with the house and the dogs.

Could this situation get any stranger? Well, throw in UFOS, ghost sightings, and giraffes.
Who could think up a way to combine all this? Elise Sax did and does it better than anyone else.
Clear your schedule because once you begin this book, you won't want to be distracted by your own life and troubles. They will look so much smaller after you spend time with Matilda.
However I bet you can't wait to visit with her again!

Elise is an overwhelmed single mother of two boys in Southern California. She’s an avid traveler, a swing dancer, an occasional piano player, and an online shopping junkie.
