Summary:

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... 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, that his uncle has forgotten to mention a missing five million bucks he might have lost in Agnes's house, and that 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 hitmen show up for Agnes, and some wedding guests gather with the 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.

    I loved this book, & the narration was good too. The humor, & relationships cracked me up. I read this book before & wanted to listen to it. It's not like listening to a movie but it's better than your own brain.

    This book was awesome! It was hilarious, but with the right amount of seriousness to it also... if that makes any sense. I would recommend it!

    I thought this a great read! So Funny & intertaining.. Even to laughing out load at times No the back ground voice wasn't great.. couldn't hear it at times.. and yes Cds were a mess even on a replacement copy they sent me but all in all I loved the story & will read more from her.

    I don't even know where to start with this book. When I first received it, I was excited to see that there were 10 CD's! After the first one, I was thinking "wow, really, 9 more I have to listen to?" The main character, Cranky Agnus was entirely too whiny about love and being hurt. She had some funny parts about her but for the most part, I couldn't seen anything great about this heroine. The narrator did a lousy job with the characters; no no passion or energy and they seemed to blend together. I disliked use of "background thinking". Whenever the characters had a thought in their head, the voice was softened and you couldn't hear what they were saying, unless you had the volume all the way up. Many scratches on all CD's, made for a frustrating read. CD's skipped in several places and I had to pass through tracks to find a reasonable response. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
