Publisher's Summary

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?

Critic Reviews

"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, Light and Intelligent

A strong, witty and funny woman is our main character. An intellectual fighter! A little bit of a love story intertwined with the survival of a woman recovering from an adulterous husband. I loved this book!

A NEW MOLLY HARPER FAN

What did you love best about And One Last Thing...?

I enjoyed the complete story, even though the main character was a little whiney and I wanted her to get over it. I've never experienced it, but I felt like this was real. I also loved her brother Emmitt. He was hilarious.

What was one of the most memorable moments of And One Last Thing...?

When Emmitt and his friends told Lacy the truth. They were honest and it was funny.

What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her voices were great. This was my first time listening to her and reviews on her were extremely high, so my expectations were high and she lived up to them. BB's voice was great as well as Emmitt's voice.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Not sure.

Any additional comments?

This was well worth the credit. The recommendations were correct. I didn't have as many laugh out loud moments and I didn't think it was as funny as another book I recently listened to, but it was well worth it. I already have another Harper book on my wish list.

Enjoyable listen

What did you love best about And One Last Thing...?

I loved the banter between Lacey and Monroe. Quirky, witty, and funny. I also liked that Lacey didn't mope around through the whole book - some would argue that she'd have the right. But I liked this a lot.

Any additional comments?

The reader was the perfect compliment to the story. It was an enjoyable story but a fantastic listen because of Amanda Ronconi's performance.

Good Story

Would you listen to And One Last Thing... again? Why?

Sure, it had a good pace, good narration, the storyline was well thought out and had a couple surprises in there as well.

What other book might you compare And One Last Thing... to and why?

Cant think of anything

What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

She did a good job.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It wasnt a book that I found myself making extra time to listen to it but I did listen to it fairly quickly.

Love it! Made me a little homesick!

I stumbled upon this great author and was initially attracted to it because it was set in Kentucky, my childhood home. But a great plot premise and incredibly humorous dialogue kept me riveted to my car seat! I'm sure anyone who has caught someone cheating was routing for Lacey to come out on top!

Highly recommend.

Fantasticly Hilarious - Great Book

This is a fantastic book. Molly Harper brings her usual humor and whit to all of the characters making it an absolute hilarious joy to listen to. The characters seemed very real and the sex part wasn't over the top and disgustingly graphic. Highly recommend the book.

Made me laugh out loud!

If you could sum up And One Last Thing... in three words, what would they be?

A must read!

Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was the first I have heard Amanda Ronconi, she did the best job of ANY narrator I have listened to. She did an amazing job of bringing the character(s) to life and I love the spark she has.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed and laughed! I've been through a divorce and wish I had had the guts to say what I really wanted to say, even if it got me in trouble. Made me proud to be a woman, and I'm learning everyday to be a strong woman...this book tells me I'm not alone on that journey.

Hysterical!

After I listened to this, I bought all of the author's other books. Great storyteller and funny as all get out. She did what all women have secretly thought of doing at some point in a relationship!

Hilarious but sometimes a bit unbelievable

Molly Harper is usually an automatic buy for me eventually. I loved this book, which was sometimes laugh out loud funny but Ms. Ronconi's narration or the story, not sure which drag a bit sometimes. And I found myself saying, no, why would she do that? or "That doesn't make sense." Still I'd recommend it.

Funny with a good story

I was hooked when I listened to the sample. She wrote a searing letter about her husband, whom she had just learned was having an affair, in e-mail and hit "send to all." The fun starts there. There were sad moments, but for the most part this was about a woman who learned very quickly how to stand on her own two feet and go on. Really enjoyed it.
