About the Book

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

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 A Match of Wits

I love this series! It’s so much fun.

In this book, we get Agatha and Zayne’s story. It doesn’t follow the exact story line of the other books, which I was very happy about. Even so, there are several familiar events that happen, such as a trip to
jail, cross-dressing, disguises, a botched proposal, and all around chaos.

Agatha and Zayne have been some of my favorite characters in the series, so I’m happy they finally got their story. Agatha is probably my favorite heroine so far. She is feisty, impulsive, and hilarious. She
takes matters into her own hands and doesn’t wait around for anyone else to rescue her. Zayne’s character is different because he spends the entire book with a bad or broken leg. He has to discover some things
about himself and about Agatha, and you can’t help but cheer for him as he tries to get it all figured out.

If you like good, clean fun with plenty if chuckles along the way, you’ll enjoy A Match of Wits. It’s lighthearted, silly, and will leave you smiling.
