New Releases: A Match of Wits

Book Title: A Match of Wits
Publishing Date: July 1, 2014

A little bit about the book:
After his departure from New York two years ago to meet up with his almost-fiancĂ©, 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?

My thoughts on this book: Before coming across this book, I had never heard of Jen Turano. After reading A Match of Wits, and enjoying it SO much, I've been in the process of reading her others; especially the rest of this series, Ladies of Distinction. Jen Turano has a knack for making her books hilariously funny. Agatha and her pet pig were a comical duo and their interaction with others was fun to read.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Note: I received this book through NetGalley. http://netgalley.com
