Agnes and the Hitman

— feeling grin
Agnes and the Hitman - Bob Mayer, Jennifer Crusie

I needed this book. 

 

"Take one food writer named Cranky Agnes, add a hitman named Shane, mix them together with a Southern mob wedding, a missing necklace, two annoyed flamingos, and a dog named Rhett and you've got a recipe for a sexy, hilarious novel about the disastrous side of true love…" 

 

This book was hilarious (I literally did a spit take at one point) and very well-written. It's a good blend of heavy and light (contract hits and cooking, anyone?), that doesn't feel forced or implausible. 

 

I feel like I'm hardly doing justice with this review, but I definitely recommend it, and will be buying my own copy!
