Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer: Agnes and the Hitman

Agnes Crandall is a cook who is about to start a catering service in her childhood dream house with her fiancé. But suddenly everything goes wrong: people show up and try to shoot her and kidnap her dog, and the mob seems to be involved. More than once, the day - and Agnes' live - is saved by Shane (no last name) who is a hitman for a mysterious organization...

Comprising everything that happens in this book in a few sentences would be impossible. There's just too much happening. Even if this is a cliché, this book is wild, wacky and wonderful. I really like Agnes. She has a lot of self-respect and self-esteem, which is something that other romance novel heroines are seriously lacking. She also takes charge of her life rather than waiting for things just to happen. I also like Shane, despite his horrible job. And words can't describe how funny this book is. It made me chuckle and giggle and sometimes laugh out loud. Go and read this, you won't regret it. This is a very good book (Grade A)
