Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer

Agnes has finally gotten the home of her dreams, has a successful column in the paper called Cranky Agnes, where she dishes about food, is having the wedding of the year at her house for her goddaughter and has a wonderful fiance. What could go wrong? Everything! A man breaks into her house, points a gun at her and demands her dog. Agnes grabs the frying pan and knocks him in the head. He unfortunately falls through the secret door that is in the wall and falls into a basement where he breaks his neck.

Shane was in the middle of a job when his Uncle Joey called telling him to come home and look after his little Agnes. When Shane gets there he finds Agnes is not so little and that she has good aim with a frying pan.

The former owner is trying to sabotage the wedding to get her house back, people keep showing up to kidnap her dog, her fiance isn't who she thought he was, and there might be 5 million dollars somewhere in the house. All Agnes wanted was to cook and live in her dream house. But instead she gets the mob, a hitman, a bigamist and two flamingos!

Agnes and the Hitman was a hilarious book. It was one disaster after another for Agnes. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next!
