If there’s trouble to be found Agatha Watson is going to find it willingly or inadvertently. She has become notorious for it and perhaps it would have been all right had it been that alone but now it’s obvious someone is out to put an end to her reporting days – permanently. While tripping about in the American West Agatha bumps into Zayne Beckett, someone she had hoped to marry in the past. After seeing the state he is in she takes it upon herself to get him back to New York, whether he wants to or not (he doesn’t). And by golly, if he doesn’t listen up he’s in for an earful. And so he goes. After being robbed and nearly killed in the West Agatha returns to the East to find that someone is still hot on her trail. Time is very likely running out for her and she needs to hurry up and find out what all the plotting is about as well as get into that ridiculous mind of Zayne’s.
Jen Turano. It’s a name I’ve heard quite often these last several months. I mean you really can’t get any better than historical fiction, Christian fiction and humour, now can you? Humour is such a rare thing in literature anymore which is deplorable considering the benefits a good hearty laugh can do for one. I’d like to see more of it. After reading A Match of Wits I now know for certain I will most definitely be reading all of Ms. Turano’s previous books in this series (one of which I own – huzzah!). Her stories are just thing to pass time when one has been having a rough day. They are lighthearted, easy going and have the most bizarre and hilarious incidents to keep one entertain for hours. I can easily see zipping through the entire series in a day. They are that good. So if you’ve been considering the Ladies of Distinction series I say go for it! Don’t let misgivings hold you back.
