Product description


A delightful, astutely observed novel about love, friendship, and forgiveness. Rose's journey to becoming a Rosie was full of heart and very satisfying. -- Leslie Schnur, author of Late Night Talking and The Dog Walker

Bonasia's portrait of a waterfront community's triumphs and squabbles is as endearing as it is convincing. - Publishers Weekly

First-time novelist Bonasia delivers a sweet and idiosyncratic portrait of small-town life with a wit and levity that suggest good things to come. - Booklist

In Some Assembly Required Lynn Bonasia gives us an intriguing outsider's look at Cape Cod, jam-packed with 'trapezoidal, ' as she puts it, or 'multi-sided, complex, slightly askew' characters, who will linger with you long after the book is closed. - Sally Gunning, author of Bound and The Widow's War

Lynn Kiele Bonasia gracefully mixes tenderness, irony, sorrow, and humor in this irresistible debut novel. A must-read, pure and simple. -- Karen Quinn, author of The Ivy Chronicles and Holly Would Dream

Lynn Kiele Bonasia's hilarious and heartfelt tale of redemption, romance, and mystery is an irresistible one. I loved these people and this wise and luminous book. - John Dufresne, author of Louisiana Power & Light

Reading Some Assembly Required is like getting an instruction manual for a new life: dump the boyfriend, move to Cape Cod, and breathe in all that great salt air. You'll feel better in no time! -- Claire Cook, author of Life's a Beach, Summer Blowout, and Must Love Dogs --This text refers to the paperback edition.
