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)
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.
Love a story w/ humor,romance,adventure, w/out a lot of bickering,& good deals.
Good author, well written, funny and keeps interest. Recomend to those who like romance/ humor.
I prefer her other two series, just cuz I like supernatural fiction (and maybe because I have an old ex-boyfriend story, too...) ;-) Still, Molly Harper's sense of humor, combined with Amanda Ronconi's delivery, well, it's a combination too good to pass up.
I started this book immediately after finishing Game of Thrones. It was the perfect selection after such a heavy, dark tale. I absolutely loved the sarcastic humor.
Laugh out loud funny.
Since finishing it I have since listened to
Funny, Real, Sad, Romance...Just what I was looking for, I wanted something light and fun to brighten up the winter weather we are having. I have recommended this book to my book club as a must read as it isn't long so they can add it to their other reads and just have some fun. This is one of the times I found myself laughing out loud and looked to see if anyone saw me.
Made me laugh a lot.
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.
