Crusie's best book to date, better than the first collaboration with Mayer. It has the exact right amount of thrill, kisses and funny. It reads very quick and gets better with every read. The chapter headers (snippets of Agnes' cooking column), are so funny I read them aloud to my husband. Makes me want to make pecan pancakes from scratch!

I think I'll read it again tonight...

I thought this book was was a lot of fun to read, and I really liked how, despite the fact that it took place over just 1 week, it didn't seem like it. Relationships usually progress quite quickly in romances, and it sometimes drives me crazy when the main characters talk about how "they've never felt this way about anyone", even though it's only been a week. Their feelings for one another are clear, but they don't talk them to death. They just are.

I loved the characters, I loved Shane, and I really loved that Agnes appreciated food and was a normal sized woman :) I've read Jennifer Crusie once before and wasn't too impressed but I will definitely check out some more of her stuff, especially her other collaboration with Bob Mayer.

I completely LOVE the book "Agnes and the Hitman." I love the plot, the characters and the laugh-out-loud dialogue. I'm giving this one my top rating because it does such a good job of blending all the important elements of a stellar romance with a high degree of comedy. I could relate to Agnes wanting to be independent; the book left me wishing I could find a hitman.

This book made me laugh. I love the characters, and especially Agnes. She is Betty Croker with an attitude. Shane rolls into town looking to do a favor for his uncle. He believes he is there to protect a small child named Agnes, based on the way his uncle speaks of her, but he quickly finds out that is not so. Agnes is a feisty woman who needs someone to protect her, and keep her from killing the people around her. Let me just say she isn't a stranger to court appointed anger management. Good book. Funny characters and scenes.

Jennifer Crusie has created Cranky Agnes, a woman with a loser finance', a money pit of a house, a wedding to pull off for her god-daughter, a hitman lover, and his protective mob uncle. This is an enother extremely enjoyable book for those who like their female protagonist to have the guts to keep people from rolling right over them. If you liked Faking It, Bet Me, or Manhunting, you will like Agnes and the Hitman too.

Fairly smooth blend of two writing styles. I have read this book three times in two weeks and laughed at Agnes' conversations to herself every time.

This book made me laugh from the incredulous beginning to hilarious end! I gasped for breath as I read the funniest passages out loud to my sister, and bought the audio book so we could listen to it in the car. Wonderful read!

Crusie and Mayer get it together this time, in a slow-starting story about a cranky food columnist with a penchant for bopping people with frying pans, a flamingo-studded wedding, and a psycho bitch grandmother-of-the-bride who may or may not be sitting on five million dollars in cash.
