A Match of Wits {Jen Turano} | #bookreview #christianromance
After his departure from New York two years ago to meet up with his 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, too-smart-for-their-own-good people been meant for each other all along?

I really aim to always provide an honest and unbiased review here on this blog. That is what makes reviewing this particular very difficult.

This is the fourth book in the Ladies of Distinction series, and I feel it is absolutely necessary for you to read the first three books before this one.

This book has many, many great reviews on every book site I have been to. And I felt it has potential to be a great book. But...

I didn't read the previous books before reading this one, and I felt completely lost. I didn't know the background of the characters; didn't get all the inside jokes they had. I felt like I walked in on the middle of a conversation and never really understood what was going on.

So just this once, please do not take my word on a book. Go read some other reviews, and then read the entire series from the beginning.
