A Family Affair

A Family Affair (Truth in Lies, #1)A Family Affair by Mary Campisi
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

If you're looking for a story that has a happy ending no matter what happens, then this is the book for you. I am not a fan of happy endings in unbelievable circumstances, those kinds of stories just never did anything for me. I realize that most readers want a happy ending where everything is wrapped up nicely, but I'm more of a realist and I would rather not have everything work out good where it is not warranted, I would rather things end messy, if that is what the story calls for. And, I believe that this story would call for that.

It was slightly unbelievable to me that this girl would find out everything about her family, from her father's affair, to his secret daughter, to her Uncle and her mother, all in a matter of months and somehow find the love of her life, forgive everyone and live happily ever after. No, too far-fetched for my liking.

The potential for this story was there and the writing was good, the author has 8 more books in this series, perhaps the next one will be more to my liking.
