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.

This is one of my favorite books. Anytime I need to feel less stressed or need a laugh I pull this book out. It starts funny and ends funny, and has a good plot to boot.

Jennifer Crusie's novels always provide laugh out loud moments for me. This novel features "Cranky Agnes" Crandall who looks for love in all the wrong places (she has penchant for hitting men with frying pans when she gets angry). Agnes is frantically trying to pull a wedding together for her best friend's daughter Maria in record time to save her house from foreclosure. As she overcomes obstacle after obstacle, a memorable cast of characters parade through her life -- Shane the hitman, the demented grandmother of the bride, Garth, formerly known as Two Wheels, and Hot Pink & Serese, two flamingos who want to be somewhere else. A great escape novel.

As an audiobook junkie, I reject any book as a loser if I can't tolerate the first CD. That's the case here. Perhaps the narrator was poor. But I think the writing itself was poor.
I threw this one back early in the game.
