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)
Lacey she's sarcastic & nice- hard to pull off
All of it, & she does a good job w/male voices
Emmitt- hysterical, supportive, takes charge of his sister's hair after getting her drunk
Love Molly Harper, her characters are easy to relate to & humorous
If you want something mindless, simple fun with a feel good ending- this is a chick lit for you. Don't need to do any thinking- its funny and predictable.
This book was not quite as funny, nor the heroine quite as sassy, as I hoped for. Still, it was a nice relaxing listening experience.
The only thing that aggravated me, but which is not specific to this book, is that everybody seems to have plenty of money. Who will write a boy-gets-girl story where the protagonist-s have to work and scrimp and save?
Sometimes you need a little light fluff. I would recommend this book, it is easy to listen to and made me smile.
The ending was good and tied up all loose ends.
When she has the face off with the mother in law
Yes, I enjoyed.
Why is it men don't know whaen they really have it good? Molly Harper draws into love with her heroine. Amanda Ronconi brings her to life. An unbeatable combination. We all await more!
There was plenty of humor to offset the seriousness.
The main character was, of course, my favorite. She was funny and down to earth. Listening to her struggle while she kept her sense of humor was entertaining. Ms. Harper can make her characters shine.
When listening to the book, you believe that the reader is the main character. Some times when I read rather than listen I might not put the same spin on the dialog as Ms. Ronconi does.
I laughed a lot.
Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Have gotten other Harper books since listening to this one.
Love fantasy books, usually with a strong female character. I also enjoyed just about anything from J.D Robb I am a fan of mysteries as well. I also enjoy funny and quirky novels anything from Molly Harper is a winner in my book. Since listening to audio books is important to me while I travel I also follow certain narrators as well.
This is nothing like Molly's typical books, but it stand alone well. I loved it so much, I bought it for a friend who is having difficulty at home. The truth is if you are a women, and you have ever wanted to get back at a man who wronged you this is for you. Not only will you laugh the entire time, and out loud, but you will see its just not worth your energy in the end to stay mad or angry or think of revenge, someone out there is perfect for you, so laugh along with me and then feel refreshed and go find you soul mate. You will be glad you did. I still listen to this from time to time when my soul mate makes me angry, its a great relief and so funny I cant help but forget why I was angry.
From the first spoken word the book hooked you, and there were so many laugh out loud moments that it was thouroughly enjoyable. I recommended it to several friends.
