Summary
Agnes Crandall's life goes awry when a dognapper invades her kitchen one night, seriously hampering her attempts to put on a wedding that she's staked her entire net worth on. Then a hero climbs through her bedroom window. His name is Shane, no last name, just Shane, and he has his own problems: he's got a big hit scheduled, a rival trying to take him out, and an ex-mobster uncle asking him to protect some little kid named Agnes. When he finds out that Agnes isn't so little, his uncle has forgotten to mention a missing five million bucks he might have lost in Agnes's house, and his last hit was a miss, Shane's life isn't looking so good, either. Then a bunch of lowlifes come looking for the money, a string of hit men show up for Agnes, and some wedding guests gather with intent to throw more than rice. Agnes and Shane have their hands full with greed, florists, treachery, flamingos, mayhem, mothers of the bride, and most dangerous of all, each other
Summary
Agnes is a food writer with anger management issues who loves her multi-purpose frying pan. Shane kills people for a living. The two meet when someone breaks into Agnes' old southern mansion and threatens her with a gun. Despite Agnes' skill with a skillet, Shane's ex-mobster uncle, who loves Agnes like a daughter, calls him home to Keyes, South Carolina to protect her. Sparks fly between the two even as more strangers with guns show up and Agnes prepares the house for her goddaughter's southern mafia wedding. Along with a healthy dose of romance, Agnes & the Hitman serves up wackiness, eccentric characters, and over-the-top humor. -- Description by Dawn Towery
