This was a fast read. If you have ever been dumped, if you have ever a fantasy about running the guy who done you wrong over with you car, this is the book for you! Maddy loves Carlton, Carlton dumps Maddy, Maddy hires Dick to make Carlton pay! ( )

Fun summer read. Not one to normally go for "chick lit," I enjoyed this story and finished in a day. The book goes back and forth between the past and present chapter by chapter, a literary technique I enjoy. As Madeline Piatro tells us more and more about her boyfriend Charlton, our dislike for the rat turns to hate. Who says revenge isn't sweet? ( )

A revenge story...short and sweet. I have someone I'd love to have made poison brownies for as well. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061241105, Paperback)

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.
