Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town, a media punch line, and the defendant in Mike's defamation lawsuit.
Her seemingly perfect life up in flames, Lacey retreats to her family's lakeside cabin, only to encounter an aggravating neighbor named Monroe. A hunky crime novelist with a low tolerance for drama, Monroe is not thrilled about a newly divorced woman moving in next door. But with time, beer, and a screen door to the nose, a cautious friendship develops into something infinitely more satisfying.
Lacey has to make a decision about her long-term living arrangements, though. Should she take a job writing caustic divorce newsletters for paying clients, or move on with her own life, pursuing more literary aspirations? Can she find happiness with a man who tells her what he thinks and not what she wants to hear? And will she ever be able to resist saying one... last... thing?

"Harper brings her trademark humor and biting social comedy to this hilarious tale of heartbreak and romance, a novel that should be on the summer reading list of every woman who has been wronged." (Booklist)
I love Molly Harper's books. She is so clever and snarky!
I really enjoyed this book as it was set in reality and there were no UnDead characters. It was a nice change of pace. Don't get me wrong, the quick wit, laugh out loud moments, great characters, and pop culture references are all still there. And once again, Amanda Ronconi was spot on. If I was going to have one teeny complaint, it seamed to me that the language was much more colorful in this book than in Molly's other books. I don't mind a little language, but sometimes, less is more.
I hope there are many more books to come from this duo!
Yes I think that Amanda Ronconi brings the character to life and her voice makes everything just that much funnier
Best moment was when she hit the send button and then panicked
when she is writing the email
I laughed until I cried
anything that Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi do is worth listening to ...more please!
A fun listen. Romance with wit and character.
Any other Molly Harper book
She is always an entertaining and excellent narrator
Email can be dangerous.
This was hilarious. I loved the stunts. I didn't see them coming. I was cracking up while listening.
The main character.
The perfect voice.
Don't mess with your ex.
I really enjoyed this book. I was hoping there were more like this. I don't really care for the vampire books. Molly Harper is a good author, I enjoy her sarcasm & wit.
I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.
I can't tell you enough how PERFECT Molly and Amanda are together. They are hands down my FAVORITE author/narrator combination. I will listen to anything they do.
This stands out among the crowd though. Lacey was funny, real, smart, and just awesome. I would absolutely be in her corner. And one of her new friends.
I am not sure about Molly Harper anymore, her desire to be snarky and make her books funny and glib seem to lead to inaccuracies and sometimes too much sarcasm.. On the other hand, I love Amanda Ronconi, I think her narration captures Molly Harper's writing.
Yes, I have tried to like the snarkiness in her book, to ignore the inconsistency, and the repetitive conversations in all her book, but enough is enough.
She is very consistent, she brings the books to life. I think I will try to listen to her doing something different from this genre. The female characters all sound the same, but that is not her fault, it is how the books are written.
I wanted to like this book, but after reading 4 other books by Molly Harper, this was just like a paste and cut of all her other female characters. The snarky comments, the inconsistent, erratic thoughts, and constant mistakes get old.
Amanda's relatable voice, delivery, and fun consistent accent keeps me interested in all of her retellings.
He Won't Get Away.
Molly always impresses me with her funny relatable characters. I wish I'd gotten this sooner.
Amanda Ronconi captured the characters and made the story flow from the first word. The story itself is a typical lighthearted romance but also has a subplot of a woman who learns to stand up for herself. Molly Harper weaves a wonderful tale told in a kind and humorous voice that left me feeling as if I knew the characters and would probably meet them in town.
No, I wanted to savor it.
Watching Lacey become assertive was an unusual twist that added warmth and depth to the story. It is one of those rare 'light' books that I will probably read/listen to again.
I love this book..couldn't put it down. Even my boyfriend loved it and he is not a fan of audiobooks. He was hooked even when am not listening to it..he was. My fave!!! I love how she treated her husband after he cheated. Best medicine!
Yes, it wickedly fun. I can picture some friends doing this.
Lacey, she stands up for herself and takes charge. And she does it in a brilliant way
She just brings out Molly's voice no matter which novel she's reading
