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 youve got a recipe for a sexy, hilarious novel about the disastrous side of true love
Agnes Crandalls life goes awry when a dognapper invades her kitchen one night, seriously hampering her attempts to put on a wedding that shes 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: Hes 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 isnt so little, that his uncle has forgotten to mention a missing five million bucks he might have lost in Agness house, and that his last hit was a miss, Shanes life isnt 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.
