Review: And One Last Thing . . . by Molly Harper

Released: July 27, 2010
Publisher: Gallery
Rated: Adult
Buy And One Last Thing ... 
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?

What I thought:

Molly Harper's hand at writing a contemporary novel. Along with her paranormal books, it was fantastic. A little more depressing than her paranormal series, it was still hilarious. Sometimes I wish I could see what goes on inside her head, but it might scar me for life.

Lacey was such a fantastic character. Burned from her failed marriage, she's able to hold her head up when it counts and is able to find someone to lean on when she needs it. Of course, being a woman, I really felt for Lacey and even got teary eyed for her a few times. I think she did the right thing, kick the lousy excuse for a guy to the curb. But hey, that's just me.

What I truly love about Molly Harper is her sense of humor. Not just snarkiness, but being able to see the humor in just about everything. Reading a novel like this stands out in all the novels I read that are just too dark and depressing. I have yet to be disappointed with any of her work and it doesn't look like that will happen any time soon.

My Rating:

Where is the edit button when you need it...I had to delete my post above so that I could fix a typo.

I recently read the book (It was given to me as a gift from a friend). I too liked the character of Lacey,even though I would have preferred it if she had given up on the guy a little faster.

I like dark and depressing, because I like being touched to the core. I also like sarcastic humour, because I consider it to be a very intelligent way to deal with everything. That book had both, so 5 stars from me!
