Beschreibung

At thirty-nine, Leona Accorsi is broke, single, back in school, and living in her sister Carly's basement. She's perfectly content being quirky Auntie Lee to Carly's four children. That is, until Leona's doctor tells her that if she wants to have a child, she'd better do it now.

Leona does want a baby. She always has, but the circumstances have never been right. Now she has a huge decision to make: face motherhood on her own or risk missing out on its rewards.

Unfortunately, she's let her romantic life go stagnant. She barely even knows any single men. She has just a few prospects: a Vietnam vet and partial amputee, his intimidating son, the sweet but troubled man who tutors her niece, and a fellow nursing student she's never actually met.

As Leona discovers more about each one, she realizes any of them could be the right man for the job. The more important question is, has she become the right woman?

    I absolutely loved this book! So charming and witty... and just an overall feel good book.

    I learned a lot about relationships, setting boundaries, trying and failing--I guess that's as much of a success as one can ask for. I loved the characters--I'd love to be friends with Leona. I liked a couple of turns where things weren't what they seemed to be. Great book. I hope we get more one day!

    Title: All The Good PartsAuthor: Loretta NyhanPublisher: Lake Union PublishingReviewed By: Arlena DeanRating: FiveReview:"All The Good Parts" by Loretta NyhanMy Thoughts....What happens when Leona's gynecologist [Dr. Bridget] tells her 'now's the time' especially if she was thinking of having a baby. We find Leona being single, 39 years old, working as a health care aid while working on the nursing degree [online]limited income,living with her sister Carly, her husband and their four children. Now, this is where this story will get very interesting with Leona trying to choose a sperm donor. What will Leona do about this situation? Who will she turn to for advice since she wasn't dating anyone? What was up with her sister Carly? Be ready for this story to take on quite a few twist and turns as Leona starts her journey of picking a donor which will not be a easy choice. "What guy will Leona choose?" I loved how I was able to correctly guess whom it would be!The author gives the reader some very intriguing characters....from Leona, to Carly, Donal, Maura, Daryl, Jerry, Paul, Estelle to name a few that will give one well developed, likable, portrayed, relatable, believable, quirky and in the end giving a warm fun humorous read [the baby shower scenes]. I found it very intriguing who Leona turns to as well as whom she received advice from. I liked the growth pattern that the reader will see develop by the end of this read of this heroine. This is where I say you will have to pick up this engaging good heart felt read to see how well this author will present this story to her readers. In the end the reader will get a novel that shows and deals with 'family, friends, disappointment, love. self discovery and hope.'This ARC was given by the publisher and NetGallery in exchange for a honest and unbiased review.

    An unexpected gem. This book made me think of so many things in my own life, painful things that I’m dealing with. I think I cried during the last hour, - from both joy and sadness - this book is very well told, and handles very sensitive subjects really well.
    I already know a handful of women that I want to get this book for. Absolutely recommend.
