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)

Still love her books

Completely different then the Jane Jameson series, but no less. Its is absolutely hilarious. And I am only about halfway through it. Amanda Ronconi as always delivers a stellar performance and you can really feel the character through her narration. If you are looking for a good book to keep you snickering throughout it, I highly recommend it. At just over 8 hours it is relatively short but definitely worth it.

Moving on

Obviously, this is a "moving-on" story, funny in places, predictable in others. I was slightly annoyed by the narrator's voice. Narration has such a big impact on the story; this is told by an age appropriate woman, but I still found her distracting. That said, I'm not in my thirties, so take it for what it's worth.
The story follows the revelation of a jerk of a husband who is cheating on a woman who had not yet found herself. This is her story of testing the water of life, without the social crutch of a husband, even if he was a jerk.

Fast moving, entertaining story!

This book was a fun read or the genre that I would call a beach book!
Not terribly taxing mentally but something that you don't want to end.

Briefly, the book is about a young woman, Lacey, whose husband, Mike, cheats on her with his bimbo secretary. Lacey ends up telling everyone on the company email list both what he did and that she is leaving him in an emailed newsletter that she wrote. After Lacey leaves, Mike moves his secretary into the family home.

The only issue I had in the story is the blame that Lacey and everyone seems to put on her, rather than on the cheating scumbag. Seems like the entire town thinks that she should forgive him and stay married.

I find that the reader can make or break a book, and Amanda Ronconi made the book. In fact, I will look for other books read by her.

Entertaining

I wasn't too sure I wanted to listen to a story about a marriage falling apart but I am glad I did. The story was delightful and entertaining. Made want to try out more Molly Harper books.

How could this go so wrong

I would like to say that I've read the other audio books by Molly and this was the worst.
It took the story 6 hours to get marginally better. For the first 6 hours it detailed without humor or any interesting twists the misery which is being cheated on and divorced from in a small town. Since I am (for now) a married never before divorced female these were painful, dragging, sad, but unable to identify with the character, 6 hours.
Then it got a bit better - the part where she is getting over the sad part and becomes funny aka last three hours...
I would like to point that I've listened to the whole story on a speed of 1.5 or 1.25 (thanks to iphone)
On top of this(!!!) the writer describes the process of book writing in unnecessary/not funny/ little addition to the plot detail at which point I was about ready to go to speed 2.0 aka to skim/skip the book.
My point is - unless you were cheated on or divorced from and would like to rehash those unpleasant feelings (OMG why would you?!?) - do not read this book (if neither of these 2 experiences happened to you do not read this book)
However if you are in the process of recovering from either being cheated or being divorced this book might EITHER give you girl power feeling
OR push you over the edge into depression.
*****
This being said I did like the other 2 books by the writer - she is funny - even in some parts towards the end of this book and I will buy her work again - though I will read more carefully the plot of the book before jumping into that decision :)

Cute

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

Maybe. It's not the best book I've ever read/heard. But it's not the worst one, either.

LOVED IT!!!!

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

This book stayed with me for a while. It made me laugh and made me think. I enjoyed how Lacey got her life back in order on her own terms. Good on her :)
