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?

For me this was such a HOOT!!!

Molly Harper is the absolute QUEEN of hilarious snark!!!! Her whit is one I can totally relate too and I LOVE the narrator, Amanda Ronconi does a PERFECT interpretation of Ms. Harper's whit. In my humble opinion, there is not a better reader for Ms. Harper's books. Ms. Ronconi has her sense of humor down to a tee. This is a funny and enjoyable story about a very serious subject, DIVORCE. This is a story where the main character, Lacey ends up putting her foot (feet) in her mouth right up to her fingers, leaving only enough space to put said fingers to good use announcing her husbands affair and their pending divorce, to her husbands family, friends and his clients, when she puts her writing skills to use writing in the Accounting firms monthly newsletter (that her husband, Mike had put her in charge of ) as her platform for the big announcement.

Still snarky, but not all fun and games for Lacey who is forced to grow up and face some of the biggest decisions of her life. I love the character growth and the "there is LIFE after divorce" message that I got out of this book.

I am a big fan of all 4 (so far and hoping for more) books that Ms. Harper has written. Give her a listen and if this type of book is not your "cup of tea", try her Paranormal Vamp/Werewolf stories from her previous books, "Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs", "Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men" and "Nice Girls Don't Live Forever". If nothing else.....give the sample a listen.......I was HOOKED after the first snippet!!!!

BRAVO again Ms. Harper. I am and will remain a big fan of you snarky sense of humor!!!!

Great Book!

This book is everything you could possibly want in a romantic, light audio book. I really enjoyed it and was sorry to see it end. It definitely kept me entertained.
