    There was potential for a very good story and it was well written for the most part I enjoyed reading it My only complaint is that throughout the novel, so many family secrets were revealed and there wasn t much regarding how the characters dealt with them Some of the revelations to Christine were quite shocking or at least, they should have been I don t want to give anything away but her Uncle Harry reveals a pretty big family secret to Christine toward the end and there is nothing afterward No [...]

    Just lost my review Fuck you, Wi Fi Here we go This was a DNF for me for numerous reasons.1 It was tedious Page after page of back story that isn t necessary, followed by even pages of fretting on Christina s part After being told in countless different ways that she hero worships her father, I get the fucking point Move on already.2 Unnecessary story One chapter is about Christina, the next is about her Uncle Harry, then the next is about Christina again Sorry, but I don t give a fuck about Un [...]

    A Family Affair is my first Mary Campisi book I was blown away This book elicited so much emotion in me that I literally found myself sad as I was turning the pages.Christine Blacksworth s life has been irrevocably changed with just one phone call The call that delivered the news that her beloved father had been in a car accident, on his way home from the cabin that he goes to for 4 days a month, every month, and didn t survive Upon finding out that her father has left a third of his estate to a [...]

    The strength of this story was in the characters Uncle Harry was degenerate, immoral, and at times, disgusting Yet somehow, the author made me like him and want to see him clean up his act Gloria was perfectly horrible I hated her from the beginning to the end But Nate Desantro and Christine Blacksworth were the stars for me They made a great couple The plot was at times predictable, though the secret behind Uncle Harry and Gloria was a bit of a surprise The ending I saw coming However, I liked [...]

    This was an okay read There were a lot of times where I felt like nothing was really going on and I got bored, so I ended up skimming than actually reading in certain areas Questions Comments When Christine arrives at her fathers cabin, she ends up leaving the headlights of her car on Yet, once she s inside, she s looking around eventually falls asleep What happened to the car lights So her father had another family Throughout Christine is wondering if her father really loved her I didn t reall [...]

    A Family Affair was an ok read I m sad to say it didn t really grip me even though the story had great potential.Lots of secrets are revealed within the story but none were really a great surprise to me and the characters did not move me with there reactions to the situations The narration skipped between too many people which for me hindered the character development and my emotional attachment to them I wanted romance and passion from this story maybe it just doesn t suit me x

    I m not sure if my 4 stars are a result of a great story or the fact that the past few books I ve read have not exactly been fulfilling Regardless, this was a short read but long on emotion and story Imagine you are a single 26 year old female, working in the family business, money and travel are limitless Imagine that your father, who runs the investment company, takes a weekend a month to go off by himself to re group as he says a routine that has a 14 year history with him Then imagine you ge [...]

    celebrityreaders.wordpressContemporary Romance I guess you could call it Appropriate for ages 18.Imagine the conflicting emotions of a daughter finding out that her deceased father had a whole other family How would you deal with that The potential for emotions in this book was high I could already feel my head whirling with all the feelings I was going to go through in preparation for this read The parallels between Nate and Charlie were not lost on me He stood out the most in the book to me Na [...]

    I truly enjoyed this story and was reluctant when the time came that I finished the story I wanted to read about these characters lives and would gladly do so should a sequel be written.I liked Christine from the beginning and shared her determination to learn the answers to the mystery surrounding her father s death In her position, I would have done the same stopped for no one or nothing until my mind was settled but that s just it Christine learned something which didn t settle her mind at a [...]

    I really liked this book If you like The Husband s Secret by Liane Moriarty, then you will probably like this book The premise is a common one Rich society husband dies in a car accident leaving behind a wife a daughter and a secret mistress daughter combo But the author spins a dose of originality into the mix by involving other family members, outside love interests, and by blurring the lines between victims and villains A Family Affair is the first book in the Truth in Lies series Although I [...]

    After Nicole harassing me for weeks about this book, I finally read it It was a good light read family drama, romance, hot lumberjack It would make a good made for TV movie.

    Girl thought she was an only child Dad disappears monthly for fourteen years for down time and she never thought anything of it until tragedy strikes and there s a reading of his will She heads to a small town to confront a woman and turns out, her dad had another family.I loved the twists and turns in this story Disliked her stodgy mother Loved the son of her dad s mistress and loved, loved, loved the half sister that kept her coming back to that little town.

  17. Glynis Smy

    From the start of the novel I was drawn into the world of Christine, a young woman of means The twist in the tale comes into the story relatively early, and kept me turning pages The author created a world torn by love and death, and did so very well Each character was easy to visualise, love or hate Happy to recommend this read I couldn t put it down.

    An interesting time passer Read it while I was sick Not very well written Plot contained some interesting elements, but was not very realistic.

    I was delighted when I found this author this was my first book by Mary Campisi A Family Affair Truth in Lies Series 1 , and could not put it down It captured me from the front cover, the first page throughout and did not want it to end I fell in love with the characters, her writing style, and totally my style of book was blown away Love discovering authors which I have not read previously This book also includes an excerpt from Pulling Home that Second Chance Series , which I look forward to r [...]

    There was something about this story that makes it so believable In this day and age something like this can really happen and I am sure that it has unfortunately I also have to say, as a mom of four, this is why I have lead my life like an open book For me, I ve already seen how my decisions in life have affected my children and to think that there is some possibility that they will find something out about me after I am gone, that they will have to deal with, just breaks my heart It does not s [...]

    2.5 stars from me for this one.This was a very easy read about Christine Blacksworth a wealthy young woman whose Father passes away following an accident, while supposedly spending time at a cabin that he had What Christine doesn t realise is that her Father had hidden secrets from her As Christine uncovers the secrets that had been kept from her, her life takes on a new meaning to her Things that she d held dear in the past are no longer as important to her There was enough depth to the story t [...]

    What happens when a man dies and all his secrets come out This is the heartwrenching and yet heartwarming story of how that man s secrets affect those around him and how what he set in motions changes so many lives The story has several plot threads and narrators as a result of how multi faceted and all encompassing it ends up being Most of it is told from Christine s point of view and is her story Her life is turned completely upside down by what she discovers and it works a change in her She s [...]

    There was nothing really bad about this book, it was just so predictable As I ve found with most books available for free, this is the first in a series I have a pretty good idea if how the entire series will turn out based on the events and character development of the first one I could easily picture this being adapted as a move for Lifetime.Disclaimer I downloaded this as a free e book Many of the books on my e readers are serving as emergency texts for me stuck in a waiting room with nothing [...]


    WTF just happened Im sorry i dont usually curse but this book brought out the worst in me I basically didn t like any of these people except lily and her mom Christine was misguided and annoying Nate was so frustrating and judgmental and then a big thing happened towards the end of the book view spoiler Christine found her dad might not be her biological dad , instead its a probability her uncle could possibly be her dad Their was no resolution, it was just mentioned and then BOOOM , its HEA wit [...]

  26. Lynne Marshall

    I won this book here at and enjoyed this family drama overall Occasionally, the story felt like a step back in time, as if David Niven could play the role of Harry There was lots of plot to get involved with, people to root for, enough surprises to keep me reading, a romance or two, and it had a villain you couldn t completely hate I loved Lilly, and the whole concept of a secret family When Christine decided to solve the mystery about the death of her father, I could totally feel the shock alon [...]
