About the Book:
“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 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?

About the Author:
Raised in Mississippi and Kentucky, Molly Harper graduated from Western Kentucky University with a bachelor’s degree in print journalism. She worked for six years as a reporter and humor columnist; her reporting duties included covering courts, school board meetings, quilt shows, and once, the arrest of a Florida man who faked his suicide by shark attack and spent the next few months tossing pies at a local pizzeria. Molly lives in western Kentucky with her husband and daughter.

My Review:
Okay. Seriously? Can one person laugh out loud that much and not be considered insane? I hope not! I really laughed out loud enough for everyone I think! Molly Harper is an EXCELLENT writer who really knows how to bring a problem into the story and turn it into a hilariously funny form of entertainment. Thank you, Molly!

In And One Last Thing, we meet Lacey, a scorned woman..her ex husband cheated on her and she had the funnest of times writing a letter to everyone to shout out what a scum-sucking loser he was,with the classical employer/secretary affair. What she didn’t anticipate, was the lawsuit she would be thrown by her ex, all because she HAD TO HAVE THE LAST WORD! LoL! That is so totally me! I could relate to Lacey in the fact that she divorced because her husband was cheating on her, I can relate to her in the fact that she just has to have that last thing thrown in. All of the things that Lacey goes through in this book is written by Molly Harper in a way that is absolutely hysterical! It really makes for an awesome chick lit novel, of which I haven’t read one this good in a LONG time.

I must warn you though, there is mild language. Nothing overbearing like every other word or anything. Just the typical “scorned” woman dialog. I do recommend this book with 5 stars, especially if you have never read a chick lit novel. This would be the perfect place to start. Molly Harper writes in a woman’s point of view in a gripping way. So grab a copy, sit back, and be prepared to laugh your heart out until your crying!
