Lacey Terwilligers 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 email 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 neighbour 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?

I love Molly Harper who always makes me laugh. Truly she has a real sense of humor in her writing which is rare these days. Enough romance to make everyone happy but with quality writing rather than just the 'kissy bits'. My only complaint ...I think her husband deserved it & I hate the 'fall out' from friends & family.

A perfect blend
Lacey, but they are all done well with varied voices.
I listened to this book via the audio version because I’ve come to love Amanda Ronconi’s voice, and between her and molly Harper’s humour I am guaranteed a good read every time. This book was the perfect mixture of romance, conflict, sex, and humour that I usually expect from this author. I loved the characters, even the cheating Mike had a well-defined, three-dimensional persona, making it such a good, easy read. Lacey was the sort of protagonist you can love easily, with her self-deprecating manner and clumsy, bad decisions. Monroe was a nice character, maybe not as strong as he could be, but when the author delivers a hot, Wolverine-like man, who are we to bitch?
