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)
Couldn't say, never red the print vr
Just a fun, no brainer story to listen to while driving to work
Personality to the character
Monroe...does it need explaining?!! LOL
Her main character had some glimpses of having a backbone. She was starting to become her own person after having been a doormat all her life. She never financially supported herself though. Everything she ever had was given to her even though she was intelligent and could easily have been more self supporting. Her father was an emotionally unsupportive, self absorbed ass.
This was my first. I might give her another try. I prefer strong main characters who fight the good fight, instead of weak people who are handed everything, then thrust out on their own.
The girl who wanted to start the website was good except for being too angry. The main male character was ok.
No, I'm already a strong self supportive person.
I really wanted to like this book. There are parts of it I liked a lot. The main character started to become a strong person, but then just fell back into the same patterns she started with. She is like the women at the country club that I don't like because they are just window dressing.
Could not get into this one at all. I love Molly Harper but this one disappointed.
Yes, but her vampire series not anything else.
Didn't like her narration but it might be because of the book itself so not sure.
Disappointment and very bored.
Arguably the worst purchase I've mad from audible.
“And One Last Thing” is hilarious!!
Harper’s delivery is nothing short of masterful. If you enjoy a light hearted, good natured, and extremely funny read; then by no mean should you skip “And One Last Thing”. Spend the credit and take the ride. Guarantee you will at the very least smile, if not laugh out loud.
To Amanda Ronconi - thanks for the performance that had me laughing out loud.
Light, Fun, Entertaining
When the main character is learning how to write....write sex into her stories as suggested by her neighbor, the Author. As she reads what she has written, as the listener I'm hearing what she's written, imaging and thinking about her words and then LAUGH OUT LOUD when she thows in the name of the neighbor into the story...opps....He's not suppose to be in that Love Scene. That was the funny!
I've not heard Amanda in other books but I am impressed with the differnt "voices" she's been using in this book...the gals, the guys, the old men. Pretty great.
Molly Harper has written yet another charming, funny and perfect story. I laughed out loud! AND Amanda Ronconi was magnificent again.
Tell us about yourself! I love to read or listen( audio), nothing abridged ,I want every word the author penned that is what I want.
The rude awakening
The main character was my favorite because once she found out what was really going on ,she handled her business .
She kept it fast moving and perky
I don't quite agree about how the book ended. Based on the authors ending the tag line would be love conquers all.
I would have enjoyed it even more if at the end she was alone for a while. I believe you need space between relationships, get to reconnect with the essence of who you are and what you want. She went from her mothers house to her husband's house. The short time in the cabin was not enough. She found a new love interest while she was out there, but by the end of the book they are moving in together .nothing wrong with finding love again but no moving in so quickly.
For every woman who has considered some form of vengeance, this story takes it to a whole other level with riotous laughter and humility.
Lacey represents every woman with a cheating spouse or boyfriend. She is so much smarter than she gives herself credit and she spent years selling herself short. It's refreshing to hear her self discovery and forgiveness and figure out what type of relationship she really wants and needs with humor and eventually grace.
The Southern accents were dead-on. The delivery of punch-lines were perfection and moving from character to character was flawless.
Lacey of course...but I wanted to kick BeBe's butt over and over again and that made her memorable in a good and bad way.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This story was a great listen! Typical Molly Harper except there are no supernatural people in this story (I think every other book I've read or listened to by her has had supernaturals in it).
Lacey was married to a man named Mike who basically took her for granted and cheated on her. When she left him with a bang everyone basically made her life hell so she escapes up to her cabin in the woods. While up there she meets Monroe. He's a writer and very surly. They're like oil and water at first but slowly they become friends....and then more than friends. This is all great but Lacey is still sensitive from the issues with her husband and keeps pushing Monroe away.
I really liked Monroe. Of course, the description that he looks like Hugh Jackman didn't hurt at all...Yum!!! He's gruff and grumpy but once he warmed up he was just wonderful and I think he's someone I'd like to know in real life. I think I'll be having some sweet dreams of having a Monroe of my very own. ;)
Lacey has some ups and downs with Monroe and things aren't helped by the fact that her (ex)friends, her soon to be ex-husband and his mistress all seem to be out to make her life harder. Her mother and brother are supportive to a point but sometimes support can be a hindrance in itself. On top of this, she comes to a realization that she needs to grow up some before she can truly move on with her life.
As I said, this is a great book. Molly has such a strong and humorous voice that comes through in her books. I love reading (listening to) her books because even when dealing with stuff like divorce she can still make the story fun to read. As always, Amanda Ronconi did an awesome job on the narration! I'd highly recommend this book. 2 thumbs up! :D
