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?
Another great snarky and funny book by Harper. I didn’t even miss the fangs and fur.
Why I listened:
I can’t say no to the team of Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi.
And One Last Thing is about a marriage on the rocks in a small town in true Harper style. Who else can a real life issue like a cheating husband and make it funny like Harper can? Lacy finds out that her high school sweetheart turned husband has been cheating on her with his assistant. Does Lacy handle it quitly? Well no, she lets the whole town know in a very funny way. I’ll have to remember Lacy’s move if I ever find myself in her shoes.
Lacy is much like other heriones in Harper’s books. She’s smart, funny and sassy. I was behind Lacy 100% of the time and she had me laughing my butt off.
Mike is the walking parody of a man having a mid-life crisis.
Monroe is the hunky, Wovlerine look-a-like that helps Lacy get her mojo back. Even though he doesn’t want to be that cleshay.
Molly Harper has cemented her spot on my auto buy list, no paranormal required.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
