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)
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.
"A good book is the best contentment has"
Lacey, she is so funny.
Among the best, Amanda is awesome
Lefty Monroe - He looks like Huge Jackman, who else would I want to have dinner with?
This is a fun story. The main character does a lot of growing, the antiheroes are a bit one note, but they serve their purpose. The supporting characters are funny and interesting. Nice change of pace for a romance.
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
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
As a 50 something woman, I find most "romantic comedies" to be boring and immature. However, I found "And One Last Thing" to be very funny and entertaining. The main character is in her early 30s, so I was pleasantly surprised to find myself identifying with her situation and sometimes laughing aloud. The southern characters were humorous without being cartoonish and the "love scenes" didn't sound like soft porn (which I find too common and extremely weird). The plot wasn't the typical "woman is miserable until man comes into her life and fixes everything". The author has written great one-liners, a interesting small-town setting and a group of supporting characters that make this book an very enjoyable listen and/or read.
I only listened to the audio edition, so I'm not sure I can answer that.
In the same vein with the other Molly Harper books, but I consider this one to be my favorites.
Her voice works well for the types of characters portrayed in this book and she acts out the scenes very well.
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!
This book is laugh out loud funny.
