Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Harper's stab at chick lit (after her Nice Girls series of supernatural romance) starts strong before falling into a rut of predictability. After Lacey Terwilliger receives a bouquet of flowers meant for her husband's mistress, she sends a scathing e-mail about his affair to everyone they know. Mercifully, Harper focuses more on Mike's cluelessness and Lacey's wounded emotional state and epiphanies than the media whirlwind that starts up once Laceys e-mail earns her Internet fame. In an attempt to escape the withering gaze of the media and local townsfolk, Lacey retreats to a family cabin, where the neighbor happens to be Lefty Monroe, a Hugh Jackman–looking cop-turned-writer. From here on out, it's a fairly predictable bit of meeting and initial dislike melting into attraction, with awkward forays into a writing project Lacey undertakes. Though the leads and support cast are witty and well-done, the characters Lacey doesn't like--Mike, his mistress--are little more than caricatures, and the story loses much of its verve once the LaceyLefty romance kicks in.

From Booklist

It all started with a wrong delivery. Lacey’s marriage may not be exciting, but she never thought her husband was cheating until flowers meant for his mistress arrived at their house. After being sick and furious for a few days, Lacey, who writes her husband’s accounting firm’s newsletter, decides to update their clients and friends regarding her husband’s extracurricular activities. After the newsletter went viral, Lacey is facing a divorce and an anti-defamation lawsuit from her husband. Retreating to a lake cabin, she finds her solitude is interrupted by the handsome tenant next door, Lefty, who wants nothing to do with women and tells Lacey to leave him alone. She is more than happy to oblige, so naturally he starts talking to her. From friendship blooms intimacy. Harper brings her trademark humor and biting social comedy to this hilarious tale of heartbreak and romance, a novel that should be on the summer reading list of every woman who has been wronged. --Patty Engelmann

Format: Paperback
With the recent Chick Lit and Women's Fiction I've been reading there has been this great balance between the humor and silliness and the heartfelt and real emotions and the book And One Last Thing... is no exception.

The always horrible issue of cheating and divorce is made a lot easier to handle when main character Lacey sends out an email detailing her horrible husband's activities. The fallout of that is crazy! To protect herself and get away from it all she stays at a family cabin where she expects to find isolation...

But instead she finds a grumpy but attractive man that wants to be left alone. One thing I really liked about this book was the idea of these two people basically being isolated from everyone else so if they have interactions it's going to be with each other. I don't normally find that that happens a lot in books at least for this long of a time period.

I thought Lacey and Monroe's relationship was sweet, they are first friends helping each other out, specifically Monroe helps Lacey decide where her life should take her next and then they become more. I found this book to be a lot of fun. Lacey was surrounded by a great cast of secondary characters including her brother, the woman that her husband is having an affair with (I love how they almost have it out in a parking lot!) It's definitely making me want to check out the authors Jane Jameson series!

I would say that Molly Harper is a friend-defining author. She writes the types of books that you proudly pass along to friends and if they hand them back to you after reading and say, "I just didn't get it" or "I didn't find her all that funny" then they're ex-communicated. Cut-off! Cut adrift! Molly Harper just inspires that kind of loyalty and passion in her friends... and with good cause!

Molly Harper is a chick-lit-romance-genius. I fell in love with her and her `Jane Jameson' paranormal romance series. And in `One Last Thing...', her first contemporary romance, I fall a little bit more in love/creepy-stalker-reader-infatuation with Ms Harper...

`And One Last Thing...' is a story of crushing blows and fist-pumping feminism. Lacey Terwilliger has become a cliché at 30 when she discovers that her husband, Mike, has been boning his secretary. In a fit of rage she e-mails a newsletter detailing Mike's sexcapades to his colleagues, friends and family... and gets slapped with a divorce and lawsuit in the same day. Lacey's wronged-woman rant goes viral and Lacey has to escape the media furore in the wake of her lawsuit. She decides to play hermit in her grandmother's abandoned cabin where her solitary wallowing is interrupted by a handsome Hugh Jackman-lookalike called `Lefty' Monroe.

It is at the cabin that Lacey finds peace, orgasms, acceptance, guilt and her literay voice...

It's no secret that I love Molly Harper. Her `Jane Jameson' series made her an instant-buy author for me, `And One Last Thing...' reiterates why. Harper had me snorting and convulsing within the first chapter, and by the end of the book my stomach muscles were sore from belly-aching laughs.

How to describe Harper's acerbic wit?

Oh this one was fun! I think Lacey is what every woman who has been cheated on is really like deep down. Oh how I would have loved to write what I really felt about my ex who cheated on me and sent it out for everyone to know what a jerk he was. But luckily, I had enough sense not to. Lacey just went with it and thus unfolded a great story about getting over someone and moving on.

Lacey was a great character! She was spunky and fun and just said what she thought. I loved her! And Monroe seemed so hot! The brooding, mysterious guy at first who then opens up and becomes the great male romantic interest. And the cast of secondary characters were great too--Maya, Lacey's potential new work partner and Emmett, Lacey's gay and fabulous brother.

And the plot worked so well. Yes, the basic formula for a chick-lit story was followed, but it went so well. I felt like the story could be real. Lacey's feeling adn growth throughout the story seemed accurate and felt right.

If you've ever been cheated on, then you'll identify with this story. And if not, then you'll just enjoy laughing at Lacey's fun personality.

As always the combination of Author Molly Harper and narrator Amanda Ronconi is delightful!!

I loved this book from beginning to end! Lacey has such a snarky wit that is is easy to adore her! She really has some growth through the book and I was more than happy with the end result!!

To me the newsletter was a real "you go girl" moment. I probably would have done the same thing!

There are many fabulous supporting characters here and in typical Harper fashion a quirky but relateable vibe prevails.

I would love to see more for this, perhaps stories for her friends Sam and Maya. I would definitely be interested in those!

Fans of Ms Harper's Paranormal series may be slightly jarred by this book. No Vamps, Weres or supernatural of any sort, however it stays true to her delightfully snarky voice!! I really enjoyed it and found the story extremely entertaining. Sure the romance takes a back burner from most of the book, but I really felt it was Lacey's story on the Lacey and Monroe romance. It was about her finding herself again and discovering that she could in fact find a way to love and forgive.

Really great storytelling and wonderful reading!
