A Match of Wits

A Match of Wits by Jen Turano


From the back cover...

After his departure from New York two years ago to meet up with him almost-fiancee, 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, to-smart-for-their-own-good people been meant for each other all along?

A Match of Wits is book #4 in Jen Turano's Ladies of Distinction series.

Agatha is not your usual heroine in a historical fiction novel.  She is strong willed and a lot trouble.  She is bound and determined to get her story one way or the other...even if it means dragging down everyone around her or getting killed in the process. She seems to keep herself in no end of trouble.

Zayne is almost as strong willed as Agatha but he can't resist a challenge that involves her and wants to protect her and find her a man who will take care of her and force her to settle her wild ways.

This book started out a little slow for me.  I did stick with it however and had fun in the end.  I do have to say though, my favorite character in the whole book was Matilda.  Matilda is a pig...but do not let her hear you call her that.  There were places in the beginning where the story would lag and Matilda would step in and save the day for me.
