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 am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
I love the way this story grabbed me from the very first. It is a smart and relevant story and oh, so funny. It makes me wish I could be that clever and write such a great book. Any woman that has been through a cheating husband divorce will LOVE it.
I chose this book because of all the great reviews, and I wasn't disappointed. The description sounds kinda cheesy, and I guess it's an accurate plot summary, but let me tell you...Molly Harper executes on the plot with amazing wit! Imagine the day-to-day repurcussions of sending a scathing email that goes viral, and becoming reluctantly infamous for it. Great premise, great story, hilarious throughout, GREAT narration! loved it!
This was my first Molly Harper. Definitely won't be my last. While I didn't agree with all the choices her characters made, I loved the story, the witty dialogue and the performance. Next up for me--the first in the Nice Girls Don't series. Can't wait!
I would highly recommend Molly Harper books to anyone. In fact...a friend at work was who first recommended her to me. I read series and stand alones- both I have enjoyed very much. I love the snarkiness of the characters....
Such a fun book! It had me laughing out loud in my car and rooting for Lacey every step of the way.
Light, entertaining, and remarkably funny. Very reminiscent of Janet Evanovich. Be prepared to laugh out loud as you listen to the story. Utterly enjoyable.
The "suicide rescue". Listen to it and you'll know what I mean.
Enjoyable and entertaining. A good interpretation of the characters and their voices.
The Goth gal who kept trying to hire the main character. A real entrepreneur.
This was one of the easiest listens even though it took awhile to get used to the narrators voice. The plot was not very original but kept your attention and allowed you to follow especially if you are multitasking. I enjoyed the witty banter and would buy from this author again.
I'm about 3/4 through this book and I am enjoying it so much.
It's easy listening and great for driving!!
I am enjoying Molly Harpers books and loving Amanda Roconi's narration - such a pleasure to listen to.
I seriously laugh out loud when listening to this book - I recommend it to anyone!!!
Sara A :)
I don't know how she manages to make a divorce so comical! If you want to read something light hearted and funny this is a real pick me up. The narrator is wonderful as well. I have yet to listed to a Molly Harper book that didn't make me laugh out loud!
