"If Singletreeâ€™s only florist didnâ€™t deliver her posies
half-drunk, I might still be married to that floor-licking,
scum-sucking, receptionist-nailing hack-accountant, Mike
Lacey Terwilligerâ€™s shock and humiliation over her husbandâ€™s
philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mikeâ€™s
company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the
special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist
gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mikeâ€™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 Mikeâ€™s defamation lawsuit.
Her seemingly perfect life up in flames, Lacey retreats to
her familyâ€™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?
