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?

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED AND ADORED THIS BOOK.
This is what summer is all about. I started this book when I couldn’t sleep and then couldn’t sleep until I finished it. It was a very quick read for me. Some of the one liners from Lacey are just spectacular. I am not going to quote any, you are just going to have to get your own copy. Lacey embodies what all women would like to do when confronted with a cheating man. Get revenge! And she does so spectacularly. After sending out a newsletter announcing her husband’s infidelity to everyone and then becoming a punch line in the joke of the day, she finds herself and true love. Now isn’t that what every summer read should be?
