After his departure from New York two years ago to meet up with his almost-fiance, Zayne Beckett is the last person Agatha Watson wanted to stumble upon in her travels as a reporter with the New York Tribune. Quite pathetically bedraggled, he clearly needs to be taken in hand and sent back East to his family. Although she no longer has feelings for him, Agatha realizes, by hook or by crook, she'll have to be the one to get the obstinate man home.
Zayne has no desire to be taken anywhere and is prepared to drag his heels all the way home. . . until he finds himself slipping back into the familiar banter of his former friendship with Agatha. Once they arrive in New York, Zayne realizes Agatha's determined nose for news has earned her a few enemies, and he hopes to repay her help with some help of his own. When she rebuffs all his attempts to prove himself a knight in shining armor, the lengths to which they'll go to win this battle of wills lead to some memorable antics.
Everyone else may think them a match, but nothing could be further from the truth--until Agatha finds herself in real trouble. Have these two stubborn, too-smart-for-their-own-good people been meant for each other all along?
A Match of Wits by Jen Turano is the fourth book in the Ladies of Distinction series. I love Jen's books so much and A Match of Wits is definitely not an exception. Agatha and Zayne are the kind of couple that have you just wanting to take them by the shoulders and shake them until they realize how silly they are and admit their love. The humor and good story telling throughout Jen's Ladies of Distinction series is sure to have you hooked from the first page until the very last word. If you have yet to pick up any of her book I suggest you do so as soon as possible, starting with A Change of Fortune. Do it and you won't ever regret it!
5 out of 5. An Afternoon Snack that is scrumptious!
