About the Book
After five unsuccessful Seasons on the marriage mart, Miss Adelaide Duveen has resigned herself to the notion that she’s destined to remain a spinster forever–a rather dismal prospect, but one that will allow her to concentrate on her darling cats and books. However, when she inadvertently stumbles upon Mr. Gideon Abbott engaged in a clandestine activity during a dinner party, Adelaide finds herself thrust into a world of intrigue that resembles the plots in the spy novels she devours.
Former intelligence agent Gideon Abbott feels responsible for Adelaide after society threatens to banish her because of the distraction she caused to save his investigation. Hoping to return the favor, he turns to a good friend–and one of high society’s leaders–to take Adelaide in hand and turn her fashionable. When danger surrounds them and Adelaide finds herself a target of the criminals in Gideon’s case, the spark of love between them threatens to be quenched for good–along with their lives.

In My Opinion
Y’all know I am a fan of Jen Turano’s books, but who knew I would need the escape of To Spark a Match so much this year.
Adelaide lands near the top of my favorite characters. Her penchant for finding trouble combined with her intelligence and her longing for a real-life adventure like she reads in her books is a recipe for trouble—especially for Gideon.
These two are the perfect match and while everyone around them sees that truth, it takes Adelaide and Gideon some time to acknowledge and accept the facts.
Once again, Turano has given readers a story filled with lots of laughter, a heartwarming romance, and a touch of adventure and mystery. Reading a book by this author is always a pleasure and this one was no exception.
