He lied, he cheated. He destroyed her life.

How difficult could killing him be?

Madeline Piatro devoted four years of her life to her boyfriend Carlton—and, in return, got romance, flowers, and the best sex she'd ever had. But then he dumped her—by e-mail, no less! He used her, he broke her heart...and he even cost her the marketing job she dearly loved. Now Maddy's on a mission. She wants revenge and she wants her career back.

But Maddy's about to discover that getting even, no matter how justifiable, isn't as easy as it might at first appear—even with a batch of arsenic brownies, the help of a professional (if bumbling) hit man, and the advice and best wishes of her very best friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic read! I found myself reading this book thinking how so many of us women are like Maddy. I really related to her and her struggle. I wanted to reach into the story and slap Carlton for how he horribly he treats her. This story gave me much more than I ever expected it would. Loved every sentence. The author is so witty and hilarious. I look forward to reading more of her work.
