This book really adresses the female desire for revenge for betrayal in a hilarious way. The only problem is that if you're going through something similar, like I was, it will fuel your anger at your ex and keep you from calming and reacting rationally. On the flip side, if you're past that stage, you'll laugh at both the main character and yourself. If you've never gone through it, you'll still love the story and relate to it.
This is great. Molly is able to touch on all of the emotions of divorce. Shock, anger, sadness and is also able to find the humor and irony of an emotional journey. I wish I could have been so witty and bold during my divorce.
I love the sarcasm and laugh out loud situations. I also love the realness of feeling lonely, self conscious, humiliated and afraid. Reality with a touch of sarcastic fantasy I often play out in my head when I am in an uncomfortable situation.
Thank you for writing it down for all of us to enjoy.
A delightful, refreshing book. Beautifully performed. Will definitely look for additional books by Molly Harper, and performances by Amanda Ronconi
Great story and narrator. enjoyed interaction between Lacy & Emmett and Lacy & Monroe
I have read/listened to everything I can by Molly Harper, she is very talented and truly funny. Her one liners are very inventive and I confess I have used them on occasion. Amanda Ronconi is a perfect narrator for her books, the heroines are feisty, ordinary and lacking a little in self-confidence, which they overcome through life experiences that dump them upside down for a while. And One Last Thing didn't let me down, it was just as good as her werewolf books, just no supernatural creatures.
I enjoyed the accents.

Nice chick lit. Fun to be inside the herione's head.
I'm a truck driver. Audible is a Godsend on long trips. I listen to all sorts of stories.
Yes. Molly Harper has a knack for creating outrageous situations and strong, smart protagonists that you want to know more about.
I have purchased and listened to all of Molly Harper's books, which were all narrated by Ms. Ronconi. She has a great talent for effecting the perfect tone with the character's voices.
The heroine, Lacey Terwilliger, is a memorable and hilarious character.
I look forward to future books by Ms. Harper. She is now added to the list of authors whose releases I await with bated breath. Christopher Moore, Terry Pratchett, Jasper Fforde, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and now, Molly Harper.
This was a light, entertaining, romance novel. Perfect for listening to while doing other things. I found it quite enjoyable as are most of Molly Harper's books. I enjoy the narrator as well.
Witty, sassy and charming. I wish she has written or has in spoken word more stories that do not involve vampires. The narrator is spot on and is so believable. The narrator is Lacey the character.... I forget there's a narrator at all.
I knew going into the book that it was more chick lit than romance, and the description is fairly accurate. Written in first person, And One Last Thing follows Lacey as she goes through all the stages of something that closely resembles grief after finding out her husband is cheating on her. Even though wit and clever phrasing lighten the mood at times, this is often a serious and painful book to read. Lacey's thoughts and actions are understandable, but not always healthy or even correct. Lacey is a flawed character who strikes out emotionally at times after her life-changing upheaval, while at other times she shows real grace under pressure.
The relationship Lacey develops with Monroe is used as a backdrop to show how her husband's betrayal has effected her abilities to trust and connect. It's one of the best, and at times frustrating, parts of the book. The dialog between these two is great.
And One More Thing has lots of snap, crackle and pop, but this is no comedy. It's an ultimately hopeful book, though, and worth reading. It's best not to compare this book to Molly Harper's snarky vampire heroine in the Jane Jamison books, or the even funnier Grundy Alaska books, even though it contains Harper's trademark "humor with a bite."
The narrator for this book, Amanda Ronconi, is excellent, as she has been on all Harper's books that I have listened to so far
