#MMBBR #Review #FirstLine All the Good Parts by @LorettaNyhan


All the Good Parts

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?

Loretta Nyhan

I was a reader before I was a writer, devouring everything I could get my hands on, including the backs of cereal boxes and the instructions booklet for building the Barbie dream house. Later, my obsession with reading evolved into an absolute need to write. After college, I wrote for national trade magazines, taught writing to college freshmen, and eventually found the guts to try fiction.

I'm the author of the upcoming All the Good Parts (Lake Union, 2016) and Digging In (Lake Union, 2017). Previous published novels include I’ll Be Seeing You and Empire Girls (MIRA Books).

When I'm not writing, I can be found knitting, baking, and doing all kinds of things my high school self would have found hilarious.




What a great read.  From the start to finish I was entertained, engaged and entertained.  Nyhan has a way with her storytelling that moves a reader to feel things deep down.  Plus, she is so flipping funny.  I mean, funny, funny!!!! She captures the lighthearted side of reading, but does so in an intelligent way.  She captures all the parts of life that readers can relate to.  I laughed and found myself completely engrossed.  A total hit and a book club MUST read!!!!
