Agnes and the Hitman, by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer

November 30, 2008

Agnes and the Hitman is a chick-lit comedy with a dash of death, mystery, mayhem, and anger management issues. Of course, having the mob show up at your doorstep probably ups the probability of all of the above.

Agnes is a chef who's writing another best-selling cookbook with fiance Taylor Beaufort. She buys a house from her friend Lisa's mom, with the condition that Lisa's daughter's wedding takes place on the grounds. Lisa's mom then goes all out to sabotage the possibility of that occuring, so that she can get the house back from Agnes.

The "hitman" is Shane, who is called to help protect Agnes after somebody shows up at her door looking to steal her dog Rhett, but ends up dead in her basement instead. Shane and his partner Carpenter take care of the bodies that pile up around Agnes. Pretty handy to have around when you have a penchant for hitting people with a frying pan! =)

The body count piles up, the witch is served a few helpings of karma, the wedding goes off without too many hitches, the hitman unravels the mystery, and Agnes gets the house AND the guy. Entertaining read - good for curling up with a mug of hot chocolate with. As long as you don't spit it out laughing.
