A Family Affair is where it all began...Heartache, Betrayal, Forgiveness, Redemption...all wrapped up in the people you will love to love, and those you will love to hate!

When Christine Blacksworth's larger-than-life father is killed on an icy road in Magdalena, New York, a hundred miles from the 'getaway' cabin he visited every month, she discovers a secret that threatens everything she's always held to be true. Her father has another family which includes a mistress and a daughter. Determined to uncover the truth behind her father's secret life, Christine heads to Magdalena, prepared to hate the people who have caused her to question everything she thought she knew about her father. But what she finds is a woman who understands her, a half sister who cherishes her, and a man who could love her if she'll let him. The longer she's around them, the more she questions which family is the real one. . .

Christine ventured to her dead father's monthly getaway only to make her life more complicated. Very likable characters and easy to identify with ( )

Enjoyable family drama, a little predictable but that didn't matter, the story had my attention since there were a few unexpected twists and quirky characters. All in all a good read. ( )

This book makes me think that my own crazy family's story would make a good book. It is about a romance that comes from a family secret. Finding out about new (read: secret) family can be both exciting and upsetting. Campisi portrayed the emotions very well. ( )

A heart touching quick read about a father leading a double life and his daughter finding out about when he has a fatal accident while visiting the other family and she goes on to visit them and the story goes on from there. ( )
