Product Description

Two years ago, Zayne Beckett's departure from New York City to meet up with his almost-fiance caused Agatha Watson no small amount of grief. So he is the last person she wanted to stumble upon in her travels as a reporter with the New York Tribune. Looking worse for the wear, he clearly needs to be taken in hand and taken back East to his family. Even though she's over him, Agatha can't help feeling sorry for him and realizes she'll have to be the one to get the stubborn man back home.

Zayne has no desire to be taken anywhere. Content to sit and mope over his recent bad fortune and the desertion of his not-quite-fiance, he's prepared to drag his heels all the way back to New York. That is, until he and Agatha find themselves slipping back into the strangely enjoyable bickering and bantering of their old friendship.

Publisher's Description

After his departure from New York two years ago to meet up with his almost-fiancée, 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?

    This is the book # 4 in the Ladies of Distinction series. This is a love story that takes you back into time, 1883 time period. It is about Agatha and Zayne and their love/hate relationship. Agatha is a hard nosed reporter for the New York Tribune and is required to travel for her job. In her travels she runs into Zayne after not seeing each other for years. She realizes that she may still have feelings for Zayne. Zayne resents Agatha trying to take him back home with her. Will he go or stay in the world he has created for himself?

    I would recommend this story for anyone that wants a fun read, it has humor, friendship, love and an adventure to go back into time. It is a great afternoon read on a summers day. I really enjoyed this book and would be interested to go back and read the first books in the series.

    Match of Wits is a great read when you need a relaxing break from the hecticness of the world. It is a funny, light read that keeps you entertained. There is a pig that does not want to be called a P-I-G, trouble around every corner and a romance included. Jen Turano is known for her quirky , fun stories and she does not disappoint. I continue to look forward to reading her work.

    I recieved this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Since this book was the fourth one in a series and having not read the previous ones, it seemed kind of long. I appreciated the pig Matilda and some of the funny lines that would unexpectantly crop up between characters, but there didnt seem to be a lot of action to the story. I realize it is a romance mainly between Agatha and Zayne, but outside of them there were parts without much to keep me glued to the pages.

    Both Agatha and Zayne appeared self-centered and perhaps that was the authors intent to have readers come away disliking that character trait. I wonder too how a female author can write about the internal thoughts and struggles of a male character and while not always completing the thoughts in the novel, the audience couldnt help but complete them. Brothels could have been shown more for the disgusting and oppressive businesses that they are instead of seeming to be acceptable in the book.

    All reviews no matter who writes them are subjective in nature. Some loved this book and others not quite so much. While I appreciate the opportunity to read another novel, it just seemed to lack the adventure and intensity that I want to captivate my attention when I open a book. I loved the humorous parts because I love to laugh and would rate the book higher if there was more adventure than there seemed to be.

    I hope the author keeps writing, but adds more action, adventure and intensity in her future novels.

    A Match of Wits is yet another fun and quirky read. I laughed throughout the book and was reminded why I love to read books by Jen Turano. All of her books are so much fun and A Match of Wits is no exception. Great fun, great laughs, great romance, and great mystery, suspense and action. What do you want from a book?

    5 stars.

    Jen Turano has done it once again. A Match of Wits is a delightful book which I thoroughly enjoyed. I have loved the characters in all of her books so far and was glad we finally got to Agatha's story. An unexpected star in the book is Matilda. She is a perfect friend for someone like Agatha. I can't wait to see what Jen writes next! I received this book from Bethany House through bookfun.org for my honest opinion.
