A Match of Wits by Jen Turano

About the book:

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?

My thoughts:

I have enjoyed each and every one of The Ladies of Distinction series. I so enjoy Jen's writing style, I'd love reading her to do list. The witty conversations between her characters have me giggling and laughing out loud. Real hard to laugh quietly when you're up really late reading and don't want to wake your husband.
I love the first sentence . . .
"Sometimes, no matter how independent and self-assured a young lady believes herself to be, certain situations demand a good dose of screaming." This is definitely the case with Agatha and Zayne, not to mention Matilda. 
Agatha is an accident waiting to happen, and it seems as though her accidents of late involve Zayne which he is not very fond of, she blew up his mine, and while she didn't do it on purpose, nor was she trying to she got Zayne's leg broken again.
This is a perfect book for any season, with summer not over, grab a copy, a cool glass of ice tea, and head to your favorite reading spot. I guarantee you won't be sorry.
