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 that 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.

    Tension builds as family relationships are revealed with contrasts between wealthy urbanites and those struggling financially in cities and small towns. Some resolutions are quite predictable while others surprise. Nice hook at the end to entice readers into the next volume in the series. I appreciated that the book was well edited without distracting errors.
  • Loved it!

    This story is different than most, and I think that is why it is so interesting. It is a story about learning forgiveness, and how unexpected love, make two families come together. Definitely worth reading.
