Publisher's Summary

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?

    Story
    "Had some very bright spots"
    What did you like best about And One Last Thing...? What did you like least?

    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.


    If you’ve listened to books by Molly Harper before, how does this one compare?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

    The girl who wanted to start the website was good except for being too angry. The main male character was ok.


    Did And One Last Thing... inspire you to do anything?

    No, I'm already a strong self supportive person.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Don't waste a credit or money!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Could not get into this one at all. I love Molly Harper but this one disappointed.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Molly Harper again?

    Yes, but her vampire series not anything else.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Amanda Ronconi’s performances?

    Didn't like her narration but it might be because of the book itself so not sure.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment and very bored.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Love the Story, the Characters and the performance"
    If you could sum up And One Last Thing... in three words, what would they be?

    Light, Fun, Entertaining


    What was one of the most memorable moments of And One Last Thing...?

    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!


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.

    If you could sum up And One Last Thing... in three words, what would they be?

    The rude awakening


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character was my favorite because once she found out what was really going on ,she handled her business .


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    She kept it fast moving and perky


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I don't quite agree about how the book ended. Based on the authors ending the tag line would be love conquers all.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Heart wrenching laughter in every chapter"
    What did you love best about And One Last Thing...?

    For every woman who has considered some form of vengeance, this story takes it to a whole other level with riotous laughter and humility.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    The Southern accents were dead-on. The delivery of punch-lines were perfection and moving from character to character was flawless.


    Who was the most memorable character of And One Last Thing... and why?

    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. :)

    Story
    "Awesome Molly Harper (non-paranormal) book!!"

    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
