From Publishers Weekly:

Advertising executive Paetro ( Manshare ) writes effectively about a modern woman's dilemma: deciding whether to have a child. In 1969, college student Stevie Weinberger had an abortion when her boyfriend, Andy Newman, dutifully married his ex-flame, Carol, also pregnant by him. Today, at 39, Stevie is a successful New York TV personality, but her peace of mind vanishes when Carol, now divorced from Andy, reappears. Upon meeting the Newmans' entrancing daughter, Stevie desperately craves a child of her own. Her lover, Philip, adamantly refuses; he can barely cope with his teenaged son from a previous marriage. Just when Stevie and Philip sadly part, Andy returns to offer Stevie a tantalizing chance to start a family with him. Meanwhile, Stevie's colleague Ginny faces her own fears that motherhood would sidetrack her career. Paetro portrays her likable, realistic, vulnerable characters with the flair of a seasoned novelist. First serial to Cosmopolitan.

From Library Journal:

As she turns 39, New York talk-show host Stevie Weinberger hears her biological clock ticking away, and the urge to have a baby overwhelms her. But, biological concerns aside, it's not so easy. Her career is all-consuming, and the man she loves doesn't want any more children, having lost two through divorce years earlier. Despite the glamorous setting and all too beautiful people, the characters and their concerns seem real, at least until the last fourth of the book, which deteriorates into fairy-tale romance a la Love Story . Still, advertising executive Paetro ( Manshare) has a sure hit here with baby boomers. Francine Fialkoff, "Library Journal"
