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)
Love a good story and will read just about anything except Sci-Fi, Supernatural/Zombie/Vampire novels. Not snobby--don't enjoy them.
Clever, funny and a really good story. I really like this book, although the author seemed to run out of steam in the last 20% of the book. But this modern take on the "scorned wife gets revenge by finally taking her life back" story was really well done. A fun, easy read that you won't regret.
This a humorous book. The characters are relatable and the storyline is very unique.
I love how Lacy is tough and nontraditional.
When Lacy meets Monroe's parents pantless. It was a hystericaly funny scene.
I was laughing through the entire book.
This book is so good I have listened to it at least 4 times.
It was a cute story, predictable in terms of where the story was heading. Wife is wronged and exacts revenge, turning her life upside down. While upside down she sees the world differently and it turns out to be a good thing.
No, but she is a great reader. I felt she had perfect tone for the character.
There are some great zingers in the book.
I liked it.
It is always great when humor mixes with romance. Sarcasm is my favorite! First of Molly Harper for me, but kept buying her others. Always love Amanda Ronconi.
Funny...entertaining and did I mention Funny?
Amanda is a great narrator, she truly brings the story to life.
This is a very entertaining book full of laugh out loud moments, good friends & a hot romance.
Molly Harper has another hit. Laughing out loud became a habit as I was listening to this book. People kept looking at me like I was a nut job. The story has just the right amount of humor and insight to make it believeable. Amanda Ronconi has this author down pat. Thanks for the fun Molly.
warm, funny and full of mishief
The swimming incident
She's a good reader, so her chartacters have there own voice, plus the story really flows, which keeps you interested.
Let see Don't judge a fictional writer by his grumpyness? Actually I really like the title, it really fits ;^)
Well I really enjoyed this one, lately I'm more into the supernatural stuff, but this one got it's grip into me and didn't let me go. Which is good, this got my attention and kept it. More please.
This was as funny and heart warming as the werewolf stories by Molly.
Amanda's narration was great. She added to the story with her accent and voices of the various characters to bring them to life.
I didn't want to stop listening to it and would have liked to go through it in one sitting.
