And One Last Thing Author:Molly Harper Silence is golden. But having the last word is delicious. — "If Singletree's only florist didn't deliver her posies half-drunk, I might still be married to that floor-licking, scum-sucking, receptionist-nailing hack-accountant, Mike Terwilliger." — Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering ... more »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?« less

Total chic lit. Did I spell that right? Hope so. I had so much fun reading this book. Look I've never had a husband cheat on me 'cause I've never been married. I did it ass backwards. I have two children. No husband. But if it had to happen man I wish I had this chick's wicked sense of humor. It takes some serious guts to send out the quarterly newsletter to your husband's clients, his parents, and all of your friends, and describe in detail the fact that your husband has been cheating on your with his secretary.
And then to decide to hide out while things calm down. Only to meet Monroe. The Hugh Jackman lookalike. Do guys like Monroe really exist? I pray to God they do and that some of you dear readers have your own Monroe. Really. I do. Every woman deserves a Monroe. Including me. Especially me. LOL!
There was not a page of this book that wasn't entertaining. Or a character. You need to get this one.
I am always nervous when one of my favorite authors puts something out in a new genre. No need to be nervous here. This effort was just as good as Harpers Jane Jameson series without the fangs. Complete with a sassy heroine, an unlikely hero, and plenty of witty banter, And One Last Thing does not disappoint. Laugh out loud funny in spots, I was reminded again and again why I like this author so very much.
What a way to spend an afternoon reading! Lacey discovers her husband is cheating after she mistakenly receives flowers intended for his mistress. Lacey sends a wonderfully worded newsletter out to his entire email address book. When faced with a law suit, Lacey goes to a cabin from her youth that creates a sense of safety for her. Her unfriendly neighbor, Monroe, becomes a sounding board for her and much more. Loved it! 4.5 stars
