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)
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!!!

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!
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.
