Hey Monday {BIG PRIZE!}

Agnes & the Hitman is one of my FAVORITE books in recent years. Agnes is cranky, can cook up a storm, has a wicked temper, and is definitely someone I’d want to be friends with. She winds up in the middle of mob, family, and random acts of crazy at her new place… and also meets Shane. A government hitman who is asked to watch out for little Agnes. It’s funny, sweet, action packed, and all around just one of my favorite pure FUN reads.

I happen to have picked up a new copy to give away here, and since I’m in such a happy Monday mood, I’ve got some paper crafty goodness to go along with it…


What you see in this picture is tip of the ice burg. Yes, I’m going to STUFF a box full until it can take no more, and then ship off to one of you dear readers. ToΒ enter just leave a comment here and I’ll draw one of your names randomly on Thursday…
