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 loved this story. Broken hearted by her cheating boyfriend, our heroine tries to start fresh, with the business of slamming old boyfriends with nasty mass e-mails. She feels good and helpful, but her new love interest thinks the vengeance business will ruin her soul. They can't agree and their relationship seems doomed. Great Fun!! Loved this one.
I can always count on this team for a really good read. Tension, love, HEA, and enjoyed shedding a few tears in the final chapter of course. Have to love a romance book that gives us a good cry.
Starts very strong but loses a little bit of it's bite and falls into predictability along way. Some of the characters remain two dimensional but it is witty and well written. Well worth the time and credit. The narration is flawless.
I love love love any book written by Molly Harper and narrated by Amanda Ronconi, but this is my favorite! It is HILARIOUS! and he deserved every bit of it! BUT she deserved to mature and get over it as well! If you have ever listened to this duo, you will most likely listed to this because it's them, but if you have not DO IT! You will be hooked.
I would definitely recommend this book to a friend, if I knew she was someone who just enjoyed colorful characters and a kick-ass female who isn't afraid to say what she thinks and in a very humorous way. If she wanted to listen to a book "Just for Fun."
The dialogue was fast paced and really funny. I have listened to her Werewolf books and really liked them because they were NOT scary and contained lots of humor. With this book she outdid herself. It was even better than the others and they were really good. I like the way she writes, it keeps your attention and is entertaining and you find yourself smiling or laughing all the time. I'm glad that it ended well and she wasn't bitter. It's like, whatever, and I'm just going to go on with my life.
What a wonderful narrator, I can't think of anyone who could do a better job. She brings the characters to life and I'm sure makes the book even funnier than it would have been if you just read it. For the female characters she is excellent, she just needs a little work on her male characters. Make them sound more like men rather than a women with a sore throat. I probably shouldn't have said that because overall she gets a A+.
It wasn't that kind of book. It was just a good romp, funny, sweet and makes you wish it wouldn't end.
Her books are in the area of Romance, but they could be in the Humor section as well.
The story sucked me in. I was the girl living at the lake next to wolverine.
I love every book by Molly Harper. The sarcasm and her dry sense of humor make great characters.
Her voice was just perfect for the story.
Yes I actually think I did
If Molly Harper writes it, read it, but read this one first.
Yes, I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone wanting an easy listen narration. I listened to this book while driving many long hours between Illinois, Chicago to Springfield IL then to Monticello IN. The boring farm miles turned into hours of driving enjoyment listening to Amanda Ronconi narrate this story.
Great Book, Enjoyable to listen to.
This is the 2nd book I chose specifically because Amanda Ronconi was the narrator. I really enjoy her ability to change characters and bring you into the situations. I will continue to 'look for' books narrated by Amanda to add to my library.
I'm a busy mom who loves to listen to books. Mostly I listen on my way to and from work.
Yes! If you are looking for a fun book, this is a good one.
The realistic content and the funny, witty way she told it.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Amanda Ronconi. She does an amazing job and I have never been disappointed by her.
The Newsletter (and not just any old one)
This was a very funny and cute story. Although it was predictable I really enjoyed it and it was exactly what I needed to read at the time. Whenever I am in the mood to read a funny book I look to Molly Harper to meet my need.
A strong, witty and funny woman is our main character. An intellectual fighter! A little bit of a love story intertwined with the survival of a woman recovering from an adulterous husband. I loved this book!
I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
I enjoyed the complete story, even though the main character was a little whiney and I wanted her to get over it. I've never experienced it, but I felt like this was real. I also loved her brother Emmitt. He was hilarious.
When Emmitt and his friends told Lacy the truth. They were honest and it was funny.
Her voices were great. This was my first time listening to her and reviews on her were extremely high, so my expectations were high and she lived up to them. BB's voice was great as well as Emmitt's voice.
This was well worth the credit. The recommendations were correct. I didn't have as many laugh out loud moments and I didn't think it was as funny as another book I recently listened to, but it was well worth it. I already have another Harper book on my wish list.
