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)
Just a funny book. The ending is a bit too sweet but it is suppoed to be a light hearted book. The dialogue is fabulous- any scene with the main character's brother is funny. I thought the narrator was great. Just listen to the preview for a sample.
Happiness is a good book!
I loved it from beginning to end, truly, I did and you will too. Its laugh out loud funny and even funnier cause she and I have been nearly through the same dang thing and I reacted in a similar manner. I wish I had have reacted BIGGER oh well, there is always next time, lol ;)
Say something about yourself!
I have not read a Molly Harper book I didn't get a laugh and cute and absorbing story out of. I need MH and Rhys Bowen to provide entertaining entertainment! This is a very good book that made me laugh, uncomfortable, angry, and content.
This story about a woman wronged by a selfish husband, and what many wronged women would like to have the ability and chops to do. The email is hilarious, the family dynamics is familiar.
I have already listened to this again, and will many more times! That's the kind of book it is! Very credit worthy.
The narration and the story were great. I worked out longer at the gym just so I could get the next chapter always, but the ending was less than satisfying with the main character slinking off like a whipped puppy on the 'high road' theory.
Nonfiction writer by day, fiction lover by night.
It sounded like chick lit, but it was really more of a straightforward romance. I found it a bit slow and predictable. Likable characters and narrator, though.
It was written in a way that kept my attention. I kept wondering what was coming next
Yes, I think she is a good writer that knows how to tell a good story
This is not great literature but a well-written, fun book. I was worried that the narator's girlish tones would bother me, but it set off the eye-rolling humor and mood of the book nicely. An enjoyable romance.
Like other Molly Harper books, this one is light and sarcastic and funny. I liked the characters and the dialogue was hilarious. Amanda Ronconi's delivery is excellent.
I don't know, maybe you have to have been in a situation like hers for this book to really hit home. I liked everything about it, I just didn't love it. Probably a great read for anyone far enough past a cheating SO to look at it with a sense of irony and humor.
A gadabout with no room for heavy books, so love the audio ones.
It was what I expected. The writing was good, so I was a little disappointed she didn't make it more interesting. But it is just a fun girlie read. Narrator did a good job
