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.

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.

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.

I liked this book. Typical Crusie. Some of it was pretty far-fetched and if you are picky about that sort of thing, I wouldn't recommend it. But the characters are wonderfully written. I thought this was a throughly enjoyable, easy read!

This book is EXCELLENT! I couldn't put it down and plan to read it several more times! The best of both Crusie and Mayer rolled into one.

I **loved** this book! It was the perfect fast, light, romance for the day I read it. Don't expect depth, but if you want a fun, funny, non-traditional heroine, with some truly laugh-out-loud moments, give it a try. The character development worked for me, but then, I'm not hyper-critical; I just want to be entertained.
