Summary
Agnes Crandall's life takes an unexpected turn when a stray dog invades her kitchen, bringing a hitman named Shane into the picture, who then pulls Agnes into his involvements with the Mafia
Summary
Agnes is a food writer with anger management issues who loves her multi-purpose frying pan. Shane kills people for a living. The two meet when someone breaks into Agnes' old southern mansion and threatens her with a gun. Despite Agnes' skill with a skillet, Shane's ex-mobster uncle, who loves Agnes like a daughter, calls him home to Keyes, South Carolina to protect her. Sparks fly between the two even as more strangers with guns show up and Agnes prepares the house for her goddaughter's southern mafia wedding. Along with a healthy dose of romance, Agnes & the Hitman serves up wackiness, eccentric characters, and over-the-top humor. -- Description by Dawn Towery
